The Tallest Watchtower
Thursday, July 11, 2013
This was a very short book (it showed as six pages in my e-reader). It consists of a very short story, and a short story. I should start by saying that short fiction is a very difficult medium to work in, and it can be very hit or miss. Some people will resonate with a story, while others will not get it at all. There is little time for characterization, but you can present a powerful image or argument (without having to deal with wrap up or continuing consequences). With that disclaimer, I must say I was not very impressed with either story in this book. The second story is if a man who works at the trade towers on the day that they are attacked. The man gets out of the building and runs home to his family, but his family doesn't even know he is there. He travels with a friend back to the towers and realizes he is dead.

Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Letters to Kate
Wednesday, July 10, 2013
Everything changed between them the first time he called her Katie. Katherine Yoder has loved Johnny Mullet since they were children, but he never actively returned her affections. Like so many things in their world, he assumes Katherine will always be there. Once his horse farm is a success, then he will court her in earnest. For several weeks, Katherine has been plagued by severe headaches and dizziness. While resting at home, Johnny unexpectedly visits, but when dizziness strikes, she loses consciousness. She awakens hours later in a hospital bed, unable to remember how she got there. Seeing Katherine injured and vulnerable stirs something in Johnny, and his guilt compels him to spend time with her while she heals. Soon his heart begins to stir with questions: Does she even remember why he'd come to her house that day? As Katherine struggles to recall recent memories of Johnny, a surprise visitor arrives in her already unsteady world—a man named Isaac who claims they had been writing letters to each other, even considering marriage, before her illness. Did like the fact that this story was unpredictable. Katie fawns over a man who has never returned her affections. Then, when he does, it seems it might be too late. I enjoyed the fact that Katie turns to God instead of pining away after different men. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Book Sneeze.
