SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 13
CATHOLIC FIRE (Jean Heimann)

“Ornamental Graces is remarkable because it is an extraordinary story of faith, redemption, healing, forgiveness, and the true meaning of love. It is a beautiful, inspirational pro-life account of the miracles that can occur when we honestly face the consequences of our actions and when authentic love exists in our relationships.”

VIRGINIA LIETO *Giveaway*

“This is truly a page-turner! While reading this book, I couldn’t wait to get to the end of my work day, so that I could get back to the story . . . Carolyn Astfalk does an excellent job at relating what it really means to be Catholic (with a capital C) in today’s world; given the many pressures to succumb to in the 21st century.”

THINGS VISIBLE & INVISIBLE (Theresa Linden)

“With flawed but loveable characters, this story delves into the real-life consequences of the choices we make in relationships. It brings out the importance of offering and accepting forgiveness, and gives hope to those who find it hard to let go of past mistakes and to forgive one’s self. ”

SARAH DAMM *Giveaway*

“Well, I just read a book that surpasses any romantic Christmas movie I have ever watched. And it wasn’t predictable at all! It was quite a page turner that left me guessing what was going to happen next and certainly got me into the holiday spirit. Ornamental Graces by Carolyn Astfalk is a new Christmas classic.”

CATHOLICMOM.COM (BARB SZYSZKIEWICZ)

“Ornamental Graces, like Carolyn Astfalk’s previous novel, Stay with Me, is a Catholic romance with Theology of the Body underpinning the story. This is no Harlequin/gothic/bodice-ripper/shades-of-grey novel. That’s not Carolyn’s style.”

THERESE HECKENKAMP

“There’s never a dull page! I was highly absorbed and invested in the story and characters the entire time. The dialogue rings true. There are serious conversations, but also delightfully fun banter.”

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18
PLOT LINE AND SINKER (ELLEN GABLE)

“It’s a beautiful and touching story with well-developed, believable characters.  I highly recommend this inspirational romance that is a great read any time of year.”

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 19
THE WRITINGS OF A.K. FRAILEY  (ANN FRAILEY)

“Buy this new book by Carolyn Astfalk and enjoy a great read. But be sure to settle onto a comfortable chair – once you start – it’s hard to put down.”

ERIN MCCOLE CUPP

Check out Erin McCole Cupp’s Sunday, December 4, Sabbath Rest Book Talk for her take on Ornamental Graces.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21
TERRY’S THOUGHTS (TERRY HOUCHIN)

“In this day and time it is difficult to find a good love story without all of the sex. It is even more difficult to find a well written love story that shows Christians who struggle with the moral issues in addition to trying to figure out if this is the person they want to spend the rest of their life with.”

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 22
RECONCILED TO YOU (ALLISON GINGRAS)

“Since my entire life’s work focuses on forgiveness and reconciliation, story lines that deftly illustrate the difficulty, blessing and healing surrounding that important aspect of being whole, always win my heart!  Ornamental Graces shines exceptionally well in this area!”

FRANCISCAN MOM (BARB SZYSZKIEWICZ)

“There are some terrific peripheral characters as well; you’ll want to adopt Grandma.” Read Barb’s interview with Ornamental Graces characters Grandma, Robert, Elizabeth, and Kristen!
