A Refuge at Highland Hall

3.5 Stars
This was a great read.  I was afraid it would get long winded like so many novels in this genre do, but I was not disappointed.  At first I was surprised to find there were several story lines.  The author included more families and interwove quite a few characters into the plot.  I was a little worried since I do not like to bounce back and forth between stories, but found the author handled it so smoothly it did not bother me.  I liked her characters and the story material.  This story has a great mix of sweet love, war hardships, family, and struggle.
This story takes place in 1915 and war is descending upon London.  I think my favorite part of the story was that it included a little about the Germans who were put into internment camps during that time period.

 It is an enjoyable read for any afternoon.  I only gave it 3 stars for a lack of depth and attachment I felt toward the main 2 characters.  Their story never took hold of me and pulled me into every crevice.  Aside from that and the semi okay cover – it was a wonderful story that will bring a smile to anyone.  I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Find Your Happy - in this chunky little Journal

5 Stars for 
instant HAPPY journal 
by Karen Salmansohn

I Love this cute little Journal!  For myself, and especially as a gift for friends.  It is small and chunky and full of happy colors - not only on the outside but all throughout the book.  The author did a fantastic job with her unique questions and great layout.  I think this Christmas I will give out these to my sisters and good friends with a good set of pens.:)

One reason I like it so much is that each page has color on it.  Not a boring blank journal but a fun enticing place to rest your mind and spill a little of it through your pen.  Also each page has a cute little quote/saying that gets you started.  For example, one page says "Here's Some Confetti - Celebrate all the little things that are going right".

Don't miss this cute little chunk of fun in about a 5" x 6" size!  Don't we all need a little bit more happy in this crazy busy world of ours?  Sometimes it really does take a minute to stop and think in order to realize that life is good - I can be happy!    
I was given a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
