Another Coming-of-Age Story: Dikkon Eberhart


The Time Mom Met Hitler, Frost Came to Dinner, and I Heard the Greatest Story Ever Told is a long title--but then, Dikkon Eberhart had an unusual upbringing--not one to lend itself to a short and sweet title!  Imagine growing up around literary giants because your father is a Pulitzer Prize-winning poet.  Imagine trying to live up to such a family image--or trying to break free of it to find your own path.

This memoir is full of interesting characters and stories--as well as the greatest of all stories, the Gospel.  Enjoy this one-of-a-kind book about an unusual journey to find true identity and purpose.

I received a free review copy of the book for my honest opinion.

When We Last Spoke: A Story about Growing Up


Marci Henna presents a story of two sisters, abandoned by their mother at the home of her in-laws while their father flew helicopters in the Vietnam War.  After their father is killed in action, the sisters have a variety of small town adventures under the loving guidance of their grandparents and an eccentric great-grandmother.

As adults, they are separated by secrets they kept, but reconciliation and forgiveness can still happen.

I received a free review copy of this book and recommend it for women who enjoy a good story with unusual characters.  You can learn more by watching the book trailer.

Marci Henna will be giving away a FREE Kindle version of When We Last Spoke from Feb. 20-24 on Amazon.
