Desert gift by Sally John

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale.  Jack and Jill have been married for 24 years, and have what seems to be a perfect marriage.  Then one day Jack informs Jill that he wants a divorce.  The announcement sends Jill on a soul searching journey.  She discovers a lot of things about herself, most things that she doesn't like.  She also learns how to trust in God and have faith.  The characters in this story were interesting.  I would give it 3/5 stars.

Dragons of the Valley by Donita K. Paul

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Water Brook through there blogging for books program.   Both I and my husband tried to read this book.  We both found it confusing, and hard to read.  There were new races that we did not understand.  Also the names used in the book are hard to read and hard to remember.  This made it hard to get into the story.  I generally enjoy sci-fi/fantasy novels, but could not get into this book.  I would give it 1/5 stars.
