MY BOOK to review is Let Love Spring

Hope, prayer and renewal are the themes of this collection of stories called Let Love Spring. Each story demonstrates that prayer and faith in GOD can create miracles in your life.

A Bible verse came to me while reading this collection.

John: 4:13-14
Jesus answered and said to her, "Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life."
 Spring IS a time of new life.  Renewal.  

I loved the collection by the three authors I have never heard before.  Great job and a wonderful start to my Spring reading.  I have included the following information on Author, Linda Matchett and her GUEST POST.

The three stories that are included in this book are the following:


Essie lost hope and was desparate.  Little did she know that GOD sent her a cowboy.  Was he The answer to her advertisement?

Judah was hurt and injured.  Was Essie his Angel?


Andi had secrets.  She was afraid that they would be revealed.  She needed to come home to her Aunt but it put her at risk.  Ren lost hope and became bitter when Andi left town with no explanation.

GOD had a plan for Andi and Ren.


Chaz had no memories of his life before.  Allison had faith and believed that their love could be renewed.


To celebrate our Spring Scavenger Hunt, Celebrate Lit is giving away a $50 Amazon Gift Card!

A Love Not Forgotten
Linda Shenton Matchett Guest Post
April 6, 2018
Do you love happily ever after stories? I do. I can binge-watch Hallmark movies until the proverbial cows come home. My favorite plot line is one that involves second chances. As someone who has made her share of mistakes, I appreciate others who are graciously willing to afford someone another shot at getting it right.
When Sandy Barela of CelebrateLit Publishing approached me about writing a novella for her “Let Love Spring” collection, I knew the story had to be set during WWII (my favorite era) and have some element of “second chance.” Then I saw a magazine article about a woman who experienced amnesia as a result of injuries sustained in an automobile accident, and an idea started to germinate.
Intrigued, I set about researching the condition (there are a dozen types) and causes (three). I also had to determine how much the medical community knew about amnesia in the 1940s – not as much as they would have liked!
Armed with lots of information, I began to write. The story took shape, and I continued to write. Then I finally reached the crossroads where I had to choose whether or not to cure Chaz. I hope once you’re read A Love Not Forgotten, you agree that I made the correct decision.
Book blurb:
Allison White should be thrilled about her upcoming wedding. The problem? She’s still in love with her fiancĂ©, Chaz, who was declared dead after being shot down over Germany in 1944. Can she put the past behind her and settle down to married life with the kindhearted man who loves her?

It’s been two years since Charles “Chaz” Powell was shot down over enemy territory. The war is officially over, but not for him. He has amnesia as a result of injuries sustained in the crash, and the only clue to his identity is a love letter with no return address. Will he ever regain his memories and discover who he is, or will he have to forge a new life with no connections to the past?
