Pass Me Not and I Love Thee | Book Reviews and Giveaway



Here we are again with two more novellas from Miss Faith Blum!


Pass Me Not

Another simple and sweet story from Faith Blum. "Pass Me Not" juggles the viewpoint of both Timothy and Abigail as they pray about a "marriage of convenience." Louise adds a little spicy touch to the story.

Again, as a novella, it is well-paced and doesn't get bogged down at any point.


Back Cover:
Let me at Thy throne of mercy
Find a sweet relief
Kneeling there in deep contrition
Help my unbelief

Timothy is at his wit's end. His twelve year old half-sister has run off five housekeepers in almost a year. Since their parents died, she has grown wilder than ever. What can he do? As he looks for a new housekeeper, his eye catches sight of a mail order bride advertisement. One young lady has a younger sister and sounds like a God-fearing woman. Could this be the answer to his dilemma or will Louise run her off, too?

I Love Thee
Following the story of Cole Baxter as he suddenly finds himself rather to his four nieces and nephews, "I Love Thee" is a short and sweet story. Though stories with challenging kids are fun, I enjoyed the four well-behaved children portrayed in this story (part of what leads me to sum this up as "sweet"). The kitchen scene with Rhoda and the kids was adorable! I also liked getting to know some characters briefly mentioned in Faith's novel, "Amazing Grace."

As the third of Faith's novellas that I have read, the story flows nicely and does not take long to read and enjoy.

Back Cover:
Mom and Dad dead STOP Please come STOP Gage

When his sister dies, leaving him with four children ages 8 and under, Cole Baxter gets desperate. He decides he needs a wife. He writes to a mail order bride before realizing he almost through away the best woman he could have.
