Far Side of the Sea by Paula Scott

A woman running from God. And the man she desperately loves. Because of the lies she believes.  Taken from her conquered Californio family during the 1846 Mexican-American War to be forced into marriage with a Yankee she despises, proud Spanish beauty, Maria Vasquez, draws a knife, and begins her journey to the far side of the sea. She will flee to Valparaiso, Boston, and finally San Francisco trying to forget the blood on her hands, only to find it is blood that will save her. Dashing American ship captain, Dominic Mason, will win Maria's heart, but shatter it when he rejects her for another, setting her on a journey back to San Francisco. There she discovers her heart can never be conquered, it must only be surrendered, not just to the man she loves, but to the God who will never let her go.

A New Year - A New Word

Soo.... It's mid-January... And for some reason I am still reeling from the holidays, the accident my hubby had almost 5 months ago, and life in general. I am just waiting for life to STOP! so I can catch up, of course, and then it can move on. Which obviously isn't going to happen... so every day I feel like I am just getting a little further and further behind. Then for a few minutes or a day, I feel like there might just be a little light at the end of the tunnel, til something else gets thrown in the mix... Needless to say, my blog has kind of gotten put on the back burner for a while, because family, kids, and other things have to take priority. However, I am still reading when I can, and hopefully will have my book reviews caught up soon. Every year, I choose a word for the year. I don't know if you guys do that or not. I read about it a long time ago on a blog and was fascinated with the idea. This year, I kept throwing around words like MARGIN, ORDER, SIMPLIFY
