If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

I received 2 of these books to review.  My first review is here.

The Golden Cross  This is Book 2 in "The Heirs of Cahira O'Connor by Angela Elwell Hunt. 

Description from Back Cover of the Book:  Aidan O'Connor was raised among pickpockets and prostitutes in a Dutch colony on Java, Indonesia.  But when a world-famous cartographer discovers her natural artistic talent, she is given a chance to leave her troubled life behind.  Disguised as a boy, Aidan joins her  benefactor at sea and begins the work of drawing the flora and fauna of the new world.  This fresh beginning leads her into adventure--and to a great love.  But can this love survive the force of Aidan's past...and her ambitions for her future?

My Thoughts:  This was a pretty good book.  It takes you to some really exotic places.  I enjoyed the shipboard part of the story the most with her faking being a boy and the travel to the islands and the interactions with the natives, etc.  If you like books that take place back in the mid-1600's and that have lots of adventure, you will enjoy this book.

This book was provided for review by the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.


  1. These sound good Cathy! I think I have read another book by Angela Hunt. My favorite Christian author is Karen Kingsbury but Sally John(I think that's her name) is another good one! Hey I see you are on Facebook, I'll friend request you! I seem to keep up better on that. LOL Have a great weekend!

  2. I envy all of you that can read through a book so quickly. I always find other things to do instead of read. Oh how I would like to be taken to another place in time...somedays:)

  3. I cant seem to find time to read through a book either. I used to...maybe some day.

    Oh, you don't like tea ??? Bless your heart ; )

  4. some of these sound like great reads. Beneath a Southern Sky sounds like it woul dreally be hard to put down. i am heading to the library this weekend(since I am a cheapskate) maybe I can find one of these.
