Bookends establishes popular speaker and author Liz Curtis Higgs as one of the strongest voices in Christian fiction. Dr. Emilie Getz and Jonas Fielding are as different as two people - of the same age, with the same faith, living in the same small Pennsylvania town - could possibly be. She's a first-class neatnik; he's a world-class slob. She's into saving historical relics; he's into saving souls. But perhaps opposites do attract. For when this historian and this land developer meet, sparks fly. And despite the rather inauspicious beginning to their relationship, neither one will escape unchanged - or unsmitten!… (més)

Emilie and Jonas are at cross-purposes, but it's evident almost from the beginning that they are meant to be together. They both have something that the other needs; it just takes them a lot of time to figure out how to help each other. There were several convenient coincidences that made everything all nice and sunny in the end, and sometimes I struggle with that. The message is strong to trust in the Lord. I did enjoy learning about the Moravian denomination. Although they settled not far from me, I know little about them other than the pointed stars and the candles. I always enjoy learning something new. ( )

Bookends by Liz Curtis Higgins
Dr. Emily Goetz and she is back home after 18 years of research. She has now a job there to find out the truth of the land for the Meridian congregation in a small German town in Lititz PA. We traveled there one year and was able to take a pretzel tour where they make and sell them.
Jonus Fielding is a land developer and he wants the land for a golf course. He is so opposite of her-athletic, she a book study person.
She gets roped into going with him at 430am to count birds at the preserve.
With problems from his brother the gambler and drunk he is sidetracked on his venture...Jonus contemplates ditching it.
Emily has also had some setbacks and has contemplated ditching her efforts. Problem is neither wants to give in so the other would see them as weak and a failure..
Bonus-recipes included.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )

This was a very good book that ended up actually exceeding my expectations. This was my first book that I read of this author that had the setting in a modern time era, and I was actually curious as to how she would do writing a book in such a different era of time. Considering the differences of her other books, and the fact that this book wasn't based off of a bible story, she did a great job. One thing that I would personally have changed would have been the ease in which the main woman character was able to begin listening to God and converted into a believer. I felt like, for a woman so driven and so successful she gave up everything that she had held important in her life fairly quickly. I had been expecting something much more important and impactful to happen for her in order to have her better understand her relationship with God. Other than that, it was a very good book. ( )

When Dr. Emilee Getz arrives in her hometown of Lititz, Pennsylvania she is searching for the remnants of a sixteenth-century Gemeinhaus. Among her discoveries, though, are things of much more eternal value, things that she wasn't even looking for.

I had my misgivings, but it pulled me in and was a good "romp." ( )

It isn't possible!
    Emilie Getz peered into the window of Benner's Pharmacy, amazed to find every detail exactly as she'd remembered. The soda counter where she'd sat as a child and ordered cherry colas, the stout glass jar stuffed with locally-baked pretzels, the racks of colorful greeting cards, the customers---regulars, no doubt---perched on vinyl-covered stools. Gazing out at her, gazing in.
