Christian Fiction

I never really delved much into faith based stories, until I read Anne Rice's novels about the young life of Christ.

Now don't get me wrong, I still love a good smut novel as you can see by the books I've been reviewing, but as a result of reading these books, I opened myself up to more books that had religion as a focal point, and even romantic fiction with a little bit. The Steeple Hill line that Harlequin publishes puts out some wonderful novels that don't focus on the sexual aspect of love.

But what I've really discovered that I love now are books about the Amish. I've always been fascinated by the culture of these people since I was a little girl, visited Lancaster, PA. Its hard to believe that these people live like they do while the rest of the world rushes on ahead of them, and yet they seem happy. Beverly Lewis writes about the Amish very well as do several others like Wanda E. Brunstetter.

It hasn't helped matters that I received a catalog from and now I get to spend hours deciding what I want to order. Oh and it even has a clearance section! I'll never have money now!

What I've found so refreshing about some of these books is that though the religion and faith is there, its not shoved down your throat. I guess that's the main reason why I've really taken to some of these books.
