Strand of Faith
When the choice is between love and life, how can anyone decide?
A girl and a monk, both with extraordinary mental powers, have compelling reasons not to fall in love. But those from whom they expect support are manipulating them both because their choices will have consequences for the rest of the world.
After a stormy youth, Brother Prospero has found comfort and fulfilment in the monastery. That is, until he discovers something that forces him to reconsider his whole vocation. To follow his heart, he’ll have to face his demons again, outside the security of the monastery. Is it worth the risk? Can he beat them this time? Or will they finally destroy him?
Orphaned and mistreated, Leonie has found sanctuary and safety at the abbey. All she wants is to learn how to manage her unusual abilities so that she is not a danger to those around her. When she comes into contact with Prospero everything threatens to spiral out of her control. Whether she leaves or whether she stays, how can she possibly avoid destroying – yet again – those she has come to care about?
Abbot Gabriel is faced with an impossible choice. He can do nothing and watch the world descend into war. Or he can manipulate events and ensure peace – at the cost of two lives that he is responsible for. He knows what he has to do but is he strong enough to sacrifice those he loves?

Rachel J Bonner is the author of the four book Choices and Consequences series, the first of which, Strand of Faith, is due out in November 2018.
Getting a degree in engineering, followed by a career in accountancy is probably not a conventional path to becoming an author, particularly in paranormal romance. Rachel says that, although accountancy isn’t anything like as boring as everyone thinks, writing is a lot more fun. When not writing, she can be found walking in the beautiful countryside near where she lives, which has influenced much of the scenery in her books, or shooting things with her local archery club. Target shooting only, honest. Nothing to worry about.
She also enjoys swimming, eating chocolate chip cookies and growing aromatic herbs, especially thyme and rosemary. It’s no coincidence that her heroine likes the same things.

If you’ve read this far then that means you’re really interested in reading this book. (Who wouldn’t be I might have to grab a copy)
So my partner is literally ready to have pur child anytime now. She’s due on the 5th of September and we are all excited. I can’t wait to see my daughter’s face when she sees her little brother/sister. So we’ve been frantically decorating and getting everything prepared for the arrival (I’m still not finished 🤣) I honestly can’t wait to see my new child. People keep asking me what I would like and honestly I’m not really bothered as long as Mrs and the baby are all ok. So I’ve lately been doing 14 hour shifts none stop just so I’ve got a decent enough wage to tide me over till i get back to work. I will be taking 4 weeks off. Which is a long time.
I will try to blog but probably won’t or a while. I’m just too busy at the moment. I’m still reading other bloggers posts and books. I will no doubt be reading more books if I’m up all night 🤣
I will try to get back to some consistency with my posts again once everything has settled.
Lastly I’d like to thank you all for being amazing. I know I’ve written this a few times but I do really appreciate everyone.
I’m happily open to donations 😂 if anybody has these books and don’t want them anymore. In my amazon basket I’ve got a few books that I haven’t bought yet.
1. Ash Princess
2. Fury Born
3. Six of Crows
4. The Grey Bastards
5. Traitors Blade: The Greatcoats Book 1
6. Age of Assassins The Wounded Kingdom book.
7. The Silmallarion
9. Ravens Boys
10. Kings of the Wyld: The band book 1
These are my books that I’d like to get my hands on and read at the moment. What’s your top ten 10 books you really need at the moment?
Think of a book you’ve read that has you so hyped up enough to think that this book should be made into film. With your favourite actor’s as the characters. So what would yours be? I can’t wait to read people’s comments.
Why do I feel angry all the time. I’ve never felt like this before. I’m usually quite a chilled bloke. I never let anything bother me. But lately it just seems like everything is pissing me off. If something is happening I usually just keep my mouth shut but lately I’ve been having outbursts and saying what I’m actually thinking. I don’t know if I’m just over thinking this (there has been a lot going on in my personal life) so maybe that isn’t helping either.
I literally want to just to tell everyone to fuck off and leave me alone. I’m sure that’s just my depression trying to take over again. Well that can also fuck off aswell. As it’s not going to win. I wish someone could take this away so I’d never have it again. Taking tablets just don’t work sometimes and pretty sure there isn’t an alternative.
I may have to go back to the doctor’s to see what else can be done. I’ve been eating really badly lately aswell so that won’t be helping my mood at all. So I could get that into check and hopefully that will help ease up things upstairs.
My head really needs an off switch. I’m over thinking everything lately and pissing myself off with it. Which is unfair to the people around me.
Think I’m going to end it there as I need to keep busy and stop thinking about this shit that’s going on in my head.
I apologise for the curse words but they seemed to fit better while I was writing 🤣
I’ve published quite a few posts this month. I obviously didn’t have anything better todo 😂 I will link my posts down below. I got a few nominations and awards. I know go me 🤗 I was that suprised I didn’t even have a speech prepared. I did ring my parents and they were ever so proud. I’m waiting for my local paper to come around and do a full-page spread 🤣
I obviously done a few book reviews. Which done quite well I thought and had a few comments.
I also made a post about my first tattoo experience. Also made a post about how going to the gym is having a positive affect on my mental health.
Yes I know I’m rambling 🤣 I also did a post with another blogger about being a father. Go and check thelilycafe blog aswell as it’s amazing.
Finally I somehow managed to get 300 followers. I still can’t get my head around it. What a month June was, I everyone is having positive month and enjoying this beautiful weather we are having here in the UK.
Thought I’d try something abit different with my posts and give some thanks to my followers. I’d like to thank all of you and PP who has commented the most on my posts. I will be doing this every month. Go and show her blog some love and appreciation 😁 PhantomPaper
So I’ve been told that I need to cut back on buying books as apparently I’ve got enough. I’ve even joined a library to compensate which I think is fantastic. This had me thinking (yes this doesn’t happen very often 🤣) We could sort some sort of book club where we could send each other books through the post of books that we might think each other will like. Preferably in the U.K. just to save on postage.
Would anyone like this to happen or would it just be a daft idea.
I’d like to thank Rachel for this opportunity and emailing me the book. Please go check her website and sign up. Rachel will email you and ask if you’d be interested in reviewing a book she’s managed to get from the author/publisher for a review. Please check out her webiste I’ve left a link below.
Onto the book review.
The author is Zoe Baxter and the book only has 128 pages so it’s not a long read, but don’t let that fool you. What Zoe had done with this book is unbelievable. You’re into the action straight away. What seemed to be a normal activity for these unknowing 4 teenagers going zip lining into the unknown.
That unknown is somewhere called Hadrixia (I know right cool name) which has been taken over by an evil tyrant and took all the magic powers of people a certain age and casted out all those without any magic abilities. This tyrant has taken nearly every child who possess magic powers to build his armies and take over our world (we will get to that shortly) So now the teenagers are in a land they don’t know and haven’t got a clue what is going on. All they have is a bag and a map. Where they have to find a special stone to take back to their home world.
The tyrant is also looking for these stones for himself so he can smash the portals defenses and bring his armies through and destroy everything that’s on the otherside.
What happens to our four plucky teenager’s. Will they make it through the treacherous foreign land that is Hadraxia?
Please give this book a read you won’t be disappointed.

I didn’t intenionally go to the library to sign. I took my daughter to library as we usually do once a month.
My daughter likes todo some colouring in while I usually sit down and wait. Today though was different, I seen a book that I’ve wanted to read for nearly a year. So I looked at it and couldn’t believe there it was Robin Hobbs Assassins fate (I’m really excited.to read this book)
I went over and touched the book to see if it was real and ran back to the seat hoping nobody seen me. So I kept looking over my shoulder to make sure it was still there, and praying to the book gods that it was.
To my delight it was still there. So I thought to myself I better pick it up before someone else gets it. So I ran faster than Usain Bolt I grabbed the book and sat down to read it.
So now I’m thinking I’m going to have to sign up to borrow this book. I’m not going to have time to read 800+ pages in an hour. I needed to read this book and can’t wait to get stuck into it. So I thought I would sign up. It will probably save me a fortune (since borrowing books is free 😂) the only problem now is that I don’t want to hand it back in as I have nearly all the other Robin Hobb books and this would look nice with it 🤣
Anyway if you’ve made it this far I thank you for reading my rambling 😂
