Partial book review. I have been reading “Mayflower” by Nathaniel Philbrick. I like history and it was on the withdrawn table at the library so it was about a dollar. I won’t need to remember to return it. Sometimes it takes me a long time to read a book. It is good book about the people that came over on the Mayflower. It starts back in Europe with the families that decided to leave for America and it gives a lot of the trials that the families went through before even leaving on their voyage. This book really puts faces and heartfelt decisions into the names of history, and gives the good and the bad of the characters. The pilgrims came over to have religious freedom and to convert the Indians and ended up taking over America from the Indians. All of the wars became too much for me. I am halfway trough the book and the wars are going on all over New England. Since I am not looking forward to the book, not wanting to hear about the wars any more I am changing books. I have just started “A Confident Heart” by Renee Swope…she is with Proverbs 31 Ministry. After reading four pages it looks like a better book for me. The cover says that it is about “How to stop doubting yourself and live in the security of God’s promises”. I may go back to the Mayflower book, or read both at the same time. What book are you reading? Would you recommend it to others?
