Flames of Resistance by Tracy Groot


Love and courage in a time of war. This combination made Flames of Resistance one of the best books I have read in a long time.

It is World War II and Tom Jaeger is a fighter pilot who is shot down over France. He is picked up by the Resistance and his striking German features make him the key to a plan to get information from a sympatric French woman who runs a German only brothel from her home. But quickly things change not only between the fighter pilot and the woman, but also between the members of the Resistance as someone has betrayed them.  Will the unlikely French woman have the courage to change it all?

Like I said in the opening, this was one of the best books I have read in a long time. It had a gripping story and once I was hooked, I could not put it down. It was a bit confusing in the beginning to keep every character straight with all of the names, nicknames and code names being used, but once it was all figured out, it made sense. And while I was able to predict the ending, it was the ending I wanted to have. I would have been really disappointed if it had been different. This is a fantastic book that I think anyone would enjoy reading.

I was given a copy of this book by Tyndale Publishers. The views expressed above are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
