Book Review – The Touch Of Fire By Linda Howard

Laurie Reads, Western Historical Romance April 26, 2017

This book reminded me a little of the old TV series Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman. In the TV series, Dr. Michaela (known as Mike) Quinn moves from the posh world of Boston to a rough and randy frontier town in Colorado to practice medicine. The hero in Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, Byron Sully (known mostly as Sully on the show), was much softer and much less wounded (figuratively and otherwise) than the hero Rafe McCay in Linda Howard’s The Touch of Fire.

The pink and green block is July Fourth from page 20. The pink and yellow block is Sunlight and Shadow from page 33. Last but not least is the Single Irish Chain block from page 45.

Laurie’s Audio Book Review — Super Parenting For ADD

ADD - ADHD Books, Attention Deficit Disorder, Everything, Laurie Reads, Parenting, Words Of Wisdom December 4, 2015

When I picked up the audio version of Super Parenting for ADD for a credit at Audible I was hoping for a book that would provide some techniques that would help my niece, Lauraya, my great niece Amiracle, and my great nephew Zachariah…who are all still young children. What I got from the book is a great deal more profound than just techniques for dealing with the scattered, distracted, aspects of ADD. I learned some things that make sense of my own ADD as well as discovering a book that approaches ADD as a gift which needs to be unwrapped to be fully utilized.
