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.

Planning for 2018

So about this time of the year last year, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and finally came to the conclusion that I was not keeping very good track of things and my life. So, I bought and planner and I love it. But, in my search for a planner, I kept thinking there has to be something that can not only help me plan well, but also help and encourage me spiritually. Then, last year Jamie Ivey highlighted Anchored Press in her 2016 Gift Giving Guide. And I knew I was going to be getting a planner from Anchored Press for 2018.
And it has arrived! And I love it!


I am so excited to start using this planner in the new year. I hope that it will help encourage me in all areas of my life.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…
