Made My Day

Okay, so my friend Jessica and I started Bookworm Nation because we love to read and thought it would be a fun hobby to write reviews when we finish a book. Yesterday I was thinking about stopping, who reads it anyway? So, I was pleasantly surprised when I got home from class last night and found I had a comment on a review of “Nine Coaches Waiting”. As I clicked on the comment I was surprised to see if came from Nancy Campbell Allen, one of my favorite authors. I re-read her name a couple times before it sunk in that she had actually read our blog and also left a comment. After reading her comment I did a little searching and found that she also has a blog, and come to find out she has listed Bookworm Nation as a review blog that she follows! Wow, pretty flattering. Thanks Nancy, it was so much fun reading your comment, it really made my day!

If you haven’t read or heard of Nancy Campbell Allen she is a great author. She has published nine books so far (I own all of them), and has recently started a new series. I look forward to reading everything she comes out with and would totally recommend her books to anyone. Below is a list of her books.

Faith of our Fathers: This series takes place during the civil war. It really was a fun way to learn about the civil war and I fell in love with the characters. I read this series when I was first married living in North Dakota. I still remember curling up with a cozy blanket, while it was -40 outside. I plan on re-reading this series soon; it has been way to long.

A House Divided, To Make Men Free, Through the Perilous Fight, One Nation Under God

Love Beyond Time: This was a fun series. Each book kind of follows different characters that you meet throughout the series. They are all kind of time travel books; they are part mystery part romance. I also read these awhile ago and should probably re-read them as well.

Love Beyond Time, No Time for Love, A Time for the Heart, Echoes

Isabelle Webb: This is her newest series. I still remember visiting my parents in North Carolina and seeing Legend of the Jewel in a local bookstore. I didn’t know Allen had written another book and had to buy it immediately. Isabelle Webb is actually a character out of the Faith of our Fathers series. This takes place after the civil war, but instead of America it takes place in India. I really enjoyed reading about India and learned a lot about their culture that I didn’t know. It is also mystery, romance and a lot of fun.

  1. I could read Love Beyond Time a hundred times and never grow tired of it...oh wait I've already done that! After I have the baby I'll start writing reviews again but they won't be half as good as are the book Goddess.

  2. Don't end your blog - I'm always looking for something good to read and I enjoy your reviews. Of all the blogs that you have listed - yours is my favorite.

  3. I love your blog! Don't end it! And by the way-


    And Jess, THANK YOU!!

  4. Thanks for letting me know about this author (NCA). I have visited your site several times, but have never left a comment. Your blog has a classy look to it.

  5. Wow, that's amazing.

    Please don't end your blog though. I've only recently discovered it and would hate it to go away.


Thank you for taking the time to comment, I appreciate hearing from you!
