The Wedding Dress

The Wedding Dress

On 8/17 Madhouse Family Reviews wrote: The title may sound very hearts and flowers but The Wedding Dress is more than that, offering a complex tale of loves lost and refound, or sometimes just loves lost that were never meant to be. It is a cleverly woven story of the intertwined destinies of four women from different generations - Emily ... Book review : The Wedding Dress - Rachel Hauck

The Final Hour

The Final Hour

On 1/15 Madhouse Family Reviews wrote: The Final Hour is the fourth and final book in Andrew Klavan's Homelander series, but don't let that put you off because it works absolutely fine as a stand-alone novel. This series is aimed at teens, in particular I would say boys, but I still enjoyed reading it as an almost 40-year-old female ! The ... Book review : The Final Hour - Andrew Klavan

Heart of Ice

Heart of Ice

On 5/10 Madhouse Family Reviews wrote: This is the second book that I've read in the Triple Threat series (the first being Hand of Fate, which I reviewed here) but it can be read and thoroughly enjoyed as a standalone novel. In fact, I found it slightly ridiculous that the few mentions of the events in the previous tome suggest that they ... Book review : Heart of Ice (A Triple Threat Novel) - Lis Wiehl with April Henry

An Amish Love

An Amish Love

On 2/5 Madhouse Family Reviews wrote: I find the Amish lifestyle fascinating. When we were on honeymoon on the East Coast of America and found ourselves in Philadelphia, I decided I wanted to head into Amish Country and we jumped on a train to Lancaster. Sadly, without a car, we failed to get anywhere near the real Amish homesteads but we ... Book review : An Amish Love - Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, and Kelly Long

The Way Home (DVD)

The Way Home (DVD)

On 12/15 Madhouse Family Reviews wrote: It's every parent's worst nightmare. You take your eyes off your young son or daughter for literally a couple of minutes and they totally disappear. Just reading about it taps into a deep vein of dread, horror and sheer panic in every parent in the world. That is the basic storyline of The ... The Way Home (DVD)

A Girl's Guide to Life

A Girl's Guide to Life

On 9/8 Madhouse Family Reviews wrote: The blurb on the cover promises "The truth on growing up, being true and making your teen years fabulous !". Sophie has only just turned nine so she's still a bit too young for this book but, as the old cliché says, kids grow up so quickly these days and I know she's already worried about things that ...

Hand of Fate

Hand of Fate

On 4/22 Madhouse Family Reviews wrote: When Jim Fate, controversial radio talk-show host, receives a package in the mail containing a canister of deadly gas, the whole of downtown Portland is evacuated as everyone assumes it's another terrorist attack using sarin gas. The scenes of mass panic in the opening pages of this novel are chilling. ... Book review : Hand of Fate - Lis Wiehl

Beautiful Mess

Beautiful Mess

On 2/3 Madhouse Family Reviews wrote: The blurb on the back of the book says, "If your only exposure to Diamond Rio is the band's flawlessly layered harmonies and tender lyrics, you only know a fraction of the story." Well, if you live in Europe, the chances are you won't have even heard of Diamond Rio at all because they, and the whole ... Beautiful Mess : The Story of Diamond Rio

Find Your Strongest Life

Find Your Strongest Life

On 10/5 Madhouse Family Reviews wrote: After reading the title and the blurb on the back, I came to this book with a few preconceived ideas and they all turned out to be wrong. It seemed to be very "American" in its presentation and ideologies and I wasn't sure it would appeal so much to a British readership (including me), but it turns out ...

A Million Miles in a Thousand Years

A Million Miles in a Thousand Years

On 9/29 Madhouse Family Reviews wrote: When it arrived, I really thought I wasn't going to like this book. It's classified in the "religion/spirituality/general" category and the author, Donald Miller, is described as "the founder of The Mentoring Project (who) serves on President Barack Obama's task force on Fatherhood and Healthy Families". ...

Read and Share Toddler Bible

Read and Share Toddler Bible

On 8/27 Madhouse Family Reviews wrote: I wanted a book that would appeal to my two children, aged 8 and 4, and give them the basics of the most child-friendly stories of the bible. I wouldn't describe myself as a religious person to any degree but even from a cultural point of view, I think it's nice for kids to have some knowledge of the ... Read and Share Toddler Bible

Jungle Jack's The Wackiest, Wildest, and Weirdest Animals in the World

Jungle Jack's The Wackiest, Wildest, and Weirdest Animals in the World

On 7/6 Madhouse Family Reviews wrote: With a title like that, my daughters - aged 4 and 8 - couldn't wait to grab it out of my hands and discover the gems of information hidden inside. The youngest loved the bright colours and beautiful big photos of animals and birds. The eldest couldn't wait to go on a treasure hunt to find the answers ... a really fun, educational book
