Passage on the Titanic

Irene Corbett is a young mother living in Utah in 1911. She really feels as though she should go to London to study some of their new childbirth techniques. Unfortunately, neither her husband or his family is at all supportive, they feel that she should stay in Utah and take care of her husband and 3 young children. The feeling won't go away, and she's prayed about it countless times. One day she feels that she should go to her own parents and tell them about her feelings. Her parents are very supportive, they offer to pay for her to go and also take care of her young children so that her husband won't have to worry about them for the 6 months she will be gone. Irene knows that it's the right choice for her to go, so she decides to take her parents gift and mend fences with her husband when she gets back. In London she learns so much and meets young Ella Brown, and educated young lady who through no fault of her own has been forced to live on the streets. Irene is able to help her through some pain that she's dealing with and help her find a place to live and a job, but both are sad to know that Irene will be heading home to America soon. Miraculously both women end up going to America and on the grandest ship ever, the Titanic. But will either of them survive the trip? I knew how at least one of the stories was going to end for these women, but even knowing what happened to the Titanic didn't dampen my enthusiasm for this book. I have to say this was my very favorite Anita Stansfield book that I've ever read. I think part of that is that Irene was a real women and the author had to stay true to who she was. This book didn't seem quite as mushy and romantic as some of her other books have. I really enjoyed this book, I enjoyed the parts about the Titanic too, even though it was sad.

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …
