Book Expo America 2016: Friday Recap

Day three at BEA was, if it’s even possible, filled with more books than the days before.

Book Review: Glory Over Everything by Kathleen Grissom

Title: Glory Over Everything

Author: Kathleen Grissom

Rating: 4 stars

Reviewers: Dottie & Jennifer

A novel of family and long-buried secrets along the treacherous Underground Railroad.

This novel is the gripping continuation of Jamie’s story. Continue reading “Book Review: Glory Over Everything by Kathleen Grissom”
