UPHILL by Zohra G. Salahuddin, M.D Review



Karachi University students Jamil and Yusra are deeply in love. Each nobly bred and determined to achieve independence, the young Pakistanis hastily marry against their parents' wishes and leave their future precariously hanging in the balance.

Their journey together is not easy as the couple forgoes all luxuries, endures humiliation, and faces discrimination. As their challenges take a toll on their lives and threaten to unravel their relationship, Jamil and Yusra must deal with well-meaning but interfering relatives and nosy but benevolent neighbors as they attempt to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. With unflinching support from Jamil's best friend and Yusra's grandmother, the couple attempts to maneuver out of their marital mess. But as the future waits, even Jamil and Yusra are unsure if they can achieve the happily-ever-after they have always wanted.

From the posh drawing rooms of Clifton to the modest dwellings in Gulshan Iqbal, Uphill is a riveting tale of love, friendship, sacrifice, and suffering as a young Pakistani couple fights for their marriage, peace, and acceptance.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  Common but not bland, this story is unique in the writing but the tale has been shared many times.   I felt that as far as finding something that has never been written about this author did not.  The author took her story and created a way to make it fresh and interesting.  The way it combines the characters and events, you could easily get sucked into this drama filled romance with a twist.

He graduated from UMO with a degree in communications and lived most of his light hearted, loving, wise and inspiring life in Portland, Maine. He was an exemplary athlete, world traveler; know by many, loved by all. His humor, intelligence, wisdom, joy, and boundless love are richly revealed in his contributions to this book. Devon is now beyond space and time—omniscient and ubiquitous.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  Loss of a person is sudden, hard and hurtful.  The sorrow is so intense.  The loss of a child is so much more.   The pain is fresh everyday even though the healing begins.  The story is the sharing of ones life and the pain of death.  The finality however is not there for this author as she still carries on a way for her mind to process the grief.   It is a sharing of blessing and hurt at the same time.  I feel like this book would be suitable for anyone who lost a child no matter what ending faith they believe in.

Kris Vallotton’s Destined to Win Review



Pastor and cofounder of the Bethel School of Ministry Kris Vallotton walks Christians through the profound process of discovering their true identity and experiencing the wonder of their kingdom purposes.

Christians are often told that they were born with a purpose that reaches beyond their human strivings, but most are not sure how to break past the daily struggles holding them back, much less how to fully step into their callings.

As a pastor and the cofounder of the Bethel School of Ministry, Kris Vallotton has been teaching Christians all over the world how to walk in wholeness and purpose for more than seventeen years. In Destined to Win, he passes on the lessons that will help readers discover who they really are, overcome destructive behaviors, and become equipped for their kingdom purposes.

Confronting the challenges that limit Christians—such as living shackled by past pain, fear, and unforgiveness—Vallotton offers practical solutions to the of­ten-complex problems that undermine their destinies and derail their pur­poses. With personal stories and biblical teaching, Destined to Win combines practical wisdom and profound revelation to unlock the latent potential present in each person.

Cassandra's Review- The  book is spiritual and faith filled, geared toward christians and had a true purpose.  The author immerses you in just a few pages per chapter so that you can put it down and think on it a while in between reading.   I would recommend this book to christians that want to be closer and more open with themselves by wanting to change or move forward in life.

A Harvest of Thorns By Corban Addison Review

29492073

A beloved American corporation with an explosive secret. A disgraced former journalist looking for redemption. A corporate executive with nothing left to lose.

In Dhaka, Bangladesh, a garment factory burns to the ground, claiming the lives of hundreds of workers, mostly young women. Amid the rubble, a bystander captures a heart-stopping photograph—a teenage girl lying in the dirt, her body broken by a multi-story fall, and over her mouth a mask of fabric bearing the label of one of America’s largest retailers, Presto Omnishops Corporation.

Eight thousand miles away, at Presto’s headquarters in Virginia, Cameron Alexander, the company’s long-time general counsel, watches the media coverage of the fire in horror, wondering if the damage can be contained. When the photo goes viral, fanning the flames of a decades old controversy about sweatshops, labor rights, and the ethics of globalization, he launches an investigation into the disaster that will reach farther than he could ever imagine - and threaten everything he has left in the world.

A year later, in Washington, D.C., Joshua Griswold, a disgraced former journalist from the Washington Post, receives an anonymous summons from a corporate whistleblower who offers him confidential information about Presto and the fire. For Griswold, the challenge of exposing Presto’s culpability is irresistible, as is the chance, however slight, at redemption. Deploying his old journalistic skills, he builds a historic case against Presto, setting the stage for a war in the courtroom and in the media that Griswold is determined to win—both to salvage his reputation and to provoke a revolution of conscience in Presto’s boardroom that could transform the fashion industry across the globe.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-   The story lays it out in the open as far as real life in another place and the author makes it so heart touching.   To know what you might not know and to read of such sadness, disgrace and  loveless actions being done to this day is really horrid, but at the same time it needs to be out there for everyone to feel, see and know.   While I strongly urge you not to put this book into the hands of young readers because of the raw situations.

The Angels' Share By James Markert Review

29492053

Some believed he was the second coming of Christ. William wasn’t so sure. But when that drifter was buried next to the family distillery, everything changed.


Now that Prohibition has ended, what the townspeople of Twisted Tree, Kentucky, need most is the revival of the Old Sam Bourbon distillery. But William McFee knows it’ll take a miracle to convince his father, Barley, to once more fill his family’s aging house with barrels full of bourbon.


When a drifter recently buried near the distillery begins to draw crowds of pilgrims, the McFees are dubious, but miracles seem to come to those who once interacted with the deceased and to those now praying at his grave. As people descend on the town to visit the “Potter’s Field Christ,” William seeks to find the connection between the tragic death of his younger brother and the mysterious drifter.


But as news spreads about the miracles at the Potter’s Field, the publicity threatens to bring the depth of Barley’s secret past to light and put the entire McFee family in jeopardy.


The Angels’ Share is a story of fathers and sons, of young romance, of revenge and redemption, and the mystery of miracles.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-   A lot of different elements mix up in this book but then form into a story that I enjoyed reading.   The characters are written true to each role which made the book more realistic along with the added accuracy of events etc.   I think anyone older would enjoy this as it would probably connect them to a certain time or place.
