What I'm Reading

I finished up this book this past week (I talked about it here) and look forward to reading the next two books in the series but . . I'm already reading a couple of other books so I'm going to finish those first.

 "The Wood's Edge" I started while camping back in June as one of the books for the reading challenge.  I got distracted by the series I posted about here (I still need to read the last book in this series too).  Now I'm back to it.  The story takes place during the 1700's at the time that the British colonists are often fighting against the Native Americans.  Major Aubrey, one of the main characters, does the unthinkable and steals the white baby of an Oneida mother, leaving behind his stillborn son instead.  As you can imagine, this will haunt him and his family throughout the story.  I'm not too far into it yet and, honestly, am still struggling to keep people straight but I'm hopeful it will pick up and end up being a good read.
This is a book I'm just getting into this week as part of my yearly goal of reading some books.  I'm such a planner that sometimes, when things don't go the way I plan, it really frustrates me.  The fact that this book is supposed to be about "Finding peace in God's Pauses and Plans" make me hopeful that I can glean some truths from it to improve my way of thinking in those moments.

I'm looking forward to getting some reading in while camping - there is nothing more enjoyable to me than sitting by a campfire, on a cool morning, reading a good book.  :-)
