Blindsided: The Radical Islamic Conquest by Michael Youssef

         In the wake of rubble and smoke spreading throughout downtown New York, Washington DC, and in a field in Pennsylvania, America was immersed in shock, confusion, and terror. We feared that September 11, 2001 was only the beginning, and despite our growing doubts over the years, we were right.
  Blindsided is the wake-up call that will change the way you understand Islam. Michael Youssef uncovers and discusses the truth behind Islamic terror organizations and exposes the threat radical Islam poses to the free world. 
          Through textual support and historical analysis, Youssef reveals the misinterpretation and misunderstanding of the Bible by the founder of Islam that continue to be propagated by Islamists and modern terrorists.

            In this book, Dr. Youssef exposes—with integrity—the deception of Islamist propaganda in the West, unmasking their intentions. In these pages, he provides an in-depth examination on the inner workings of the Muslim Brotherhood and how its influence may be closer than we realize.

            This book is an eye opening explanation about the Radical Muslim Influence in this country. Be prepared to be surprised and possibly shocked. Radical Islam has become such a powerful force within this country. This book is a wakeup call for all Americans that care about this country. The author did any excellent job explaining his message  I recommend this book, Americans need take notice  and  learn the truth and work together to curtail the influence of Radical Islam in this nation.

Wildflowers from Winter by Katie Ganshert

        A young architect at a prestigious Chicago firm, Bethany Quinn has built a life far removed from her trailer park teen years. Bethany is called back reluctantly to rural Iowa, when she receives an urgent message from her estranged mother.  A tragedy has struck in her hometown and Bethany determined to pay her respects, and trying to avoid any emotional entanglements. Bethany vows not to stay long, but the unexpected inheritance of farmland and a startling turn of events in Chicago, forces Bethany to come up with a new plan. For Bethany, making peace with her past and the God of her childhood doesn't seem like the path to freedom. Is letting go the only way to new life, love and a peace she's not even sure exists? 
Show Less         Wildflowers from Winter is a touching tale about the power of love, faith and hope to heal a hurting heart, through seasons of grief. The romance in the novel started as a small spark that burns slowly but steadily. The characters grow from the very first page. Subtle twists to the plot keep the story always moving forward. Each new chapter brought something unexpected. 
Wildflowers from Winter was an amazing read! Real characters, real struggles, real dialogue. It is obvious that Ganshert’s heart comes through on the pages.

        Those of you who love Women’s fiction/romance, this book is for you. I received a copy of book for my review.
