Book Reviews

Few things inspire like a good story; every now and then a book comes along that’s so good it actually changes your life.  Great literature not only inspires it transforms.  Literature is meant to challenge our ideas and ideals.  This page is dedicated to reviewing those books that create this sort of transformation in my family.  In our homeschool, my children and I read at least one book a week.  Not every book captures our attention; some are lackluster but most galvanize us, encouraging us to change the world one page at a time.

I’m pleased to announce my daughter will be helping me review books.  She will give her 12-year-old perspective on books she enjoyed.  I’ll star the books that she reviews.
