Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that you might enjoy. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

If I had judged the stuff by its cover, I probably would not have read it, but now I have discovered that Michael Phillips can really write. In The Cottage, Phillips paints a wonderful description of the Shetland islands in this new release, and leaves readers wanting to see the beauty of the islands in person. She develops her characters well, she tells a tail full of twists, and she gives readers I wonderful journey to another world via the pages of her books.
This was actually the second book in the Secrets of Shetlands series, but I didn't feel lost, even though I hadn't read the first book.
I actually shared this book with a friend, and her comments echoed mine. She said, "I didn't think it was going to be very good, but I actually enjoyed it."
I would recommend this book to female readers age 14 plus and some males will enjoy the book as well. I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
