I so loved this book! I love quite a few it’s true, but this is one of the best historical fiction/romance that I have read in a while. It is based before and during WWII. A young American girl is stranded in Europe. You will smile, laugh, and cry in this one. No swearing and no sexual content. It does talk about war and dying. I give it five stars and can recommend for teens and up. A great Indie author! Will definitely read more from Melanie Rose
I was given a copy of “Jewel of Hiram” by the Author, Frank Felton, in exchange for an honest review. This book was packed with U.S. History, (including Masonic lore), as well as mystery. Hidden treasure and hidden agendas abound in this story. I have to admit I got a little confused in a couple of places, but it all came together as the story progresses. Warning: Written by a Christian, but there is some swearing, including taking God’s name in vain. Also it quotes some books as part of the bible, but that are not part of the biblical canon. For these reasons I give it 3 stars. I read it as fiction, as it was intended and I liked it. His characters, though flawed are the kind you can root for. Frank Felton has a good writing style and the story kept me going despite the differences in our beliefs. I do intend to read the rest of the series as they come out.
I read a lot of books and the majority of them I enjoy. I really like several and love quite a few. Then occasionally I read something that deserves more than a “loved it”. Those books deserve a spot on the top shelf. Flame of Resistance was one of those books. It was a book I got for free on Amazon and it was not only the best free book I have ever read, but one of the best books ever. Set during WWII, in occupied France, this story will grab you right from the beginning and keep you all the way through. A story of hope, freedom, evil and good, and a story of despair. Due to some mature content matter, I would only recommend for high school and up. But I think it is a must read for all of us born after the war. Though it is fiction, it has the truth written all the way through it. Great job Tracy Groot! I’d give it 6 stars if I could.
