What to expect when visitng my blog...

I would like to take a minute and share with you what to expect when looking over my blog. This page is an opportunity to share with others what I like to do in my spare time. These activities range from reading, which I need to do more of (have a mountain of books to conquer and I still buy more =)...) making my own greeting cards, ornaments and more.

PureHeart By Rita Hsu Syers

Title: PureHeart
Author: Rita Hsu Syers
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

We have all read books on good versus evil, Angels vs. demons but Rita Hsu Syers puts a spin on the age old story of good vs. evil. In PureHeart it is not the humans fighting the evil demons it is a dog. yes you read correctly a dog named Jake. Rita Hsu Syers pulls you into the story from the very begining with the tail of how Jack's mother came to live in the little New York town and the powers Jack poseses. Jack's owner knows that he and his sister are special because they are born of a dog who was spaded. How can a dog who was spaded give birth to two dogs? Brownen (Jack's mother) shares with Jack that she was told by a voice that her pups were special one would be a healer the other a warrior and the fate of the world would placed on one of them. Jack knows it is him.

In Pure Heart the author takes the time to introduce you each character and also give you background of the characters. Often you are reading the same story but from different point of views. I feel this worked well as you got to see how all the characters interact with each other and how perceptions of one act can be different from every person you talk to.

PureHeart is a must read for anyone who enjoys the age old battle of Good vs. Evil. PureHeart shows you that not only humans can save the world.
