This is one of my favorites. It’s about a 18 year old girl that gave up college and instead served in Uganda.

Some more of my favorites. I said I have quite a few. :laughing:

This book takes place during the reign of the Roman emperor Diocletian. It describes the life of Diocletian and what the Christians faced at that time.

This one is a story of a little girl that came from a broken home. The things she faced and went through are tremendous. But she made the right choices and joined the Mennonites. Dianne Yoder is one of my favorite authors.

This takes place in communist Romania where Christians were severely persecuted. Nicu escaped to Germany and later worked to smuggled Bibles, food, etc. to Christians still in Romania.

This one takes place around 1520 if I’m right, back when the Anabaptists first started. Claudia Esh highlights the struggles and uncertainties of the time. A supper good read.

This is my second favorite book. Dianne Yoder uses very expressive writing. The main character, Laurentia, is 17, and caught up in all the unrest of Rome.

This is my absolute favorite. Rachel faced extreme trials but through it all, she remained faithful. Also she was very close to my age, about 16, when this all took place. I highly recommend this book.

I love this book!
So basically, like there is a mother, she is actually pretty wise, but is kinda supposed to be illiterate. She is kind and selfless through the whole book. basically everything she has done in her life as been for those that she loves. But one day, in a Seoul subway station she goes missing and her family cannot find her. The whole book is on how will they find her, and the HUGE mystery on how well they actually know the person they call Mom. It is good. I mean, IDK what everyone is allowed to read, but, IDK
I wanted to post this later, but Typsey says no more than 3 consecutive replies

No. Sounds interesting.

You should check out the series of books called Freedom Seekers by Lois Walfred Johnson.

It’s all about helping a slave named Jordan Parker find a home for his family. Caleb and Libby do most of the work. Libby has to cut her hair so Riggs, Jordan’s old master, won’t recognize her, finding her pa’s money that had been stolen by a swindler, helping to capture an escaped prisoner, keeping a slave owner busy by drawing him and his family so Jordan can help his family escape, etc. the excitement goes on! These books are absolutely thrilling! You can it them on Amazon.
