Jayne’s Endeavour – Abby

Hey guys, Abby here! Sorry for posting late! Lauren contacted me about a month ago with a book she published called Jayne’s Endeavour. It’s newly released annnnd she’s even doing a giveaway for it! Let me tell you a bit about it….

Book Mockup

 

“Reids never give up.” The words once held so much truth. But at eighteen, Jayne Reid is beginning to wonder if she can live up to that standard.

When puzzling strangers appear and odd things start to happen, Jayne and her two younger sisters must find a solution-or lose everything.

What mystery lurks in the shadows of the Australian bush? Who is the man in town who thinks he can buy and bully anyone he wishes? And is it all somehow connected with their new farmhand?

Journey with Jayne as she struggles to change fear into boldness and boldness into a trusting relationship with her Heavenly Father. What adventure lies ahead?

Life in 19th century Australia overflows with hardship . . . Will Jayne have the courage to find the answers?

My Review: I LOVE new books! But let’s just say I procrastinated reading Jayne’s Endeavour…but then once I read the first chapter it drew my attention! Lauren has a fun writing style and it was interesting to see the story unfold. 

My favorite character was obviously Jayne, as she had a cool and fun personality! She was well explained and had a very emotional story behind her which made it very interesting to read!

This book took me an hour and a half to read tops (though I am a fast reader so it may take longer). I’ll give this book 4 stars for the quality and story behind it!

10 Favorite things of mine: 

  1. Garden – it’s super therapeutic and cool fun to grow food and it’s also very sustainable! 
  2. Farming – you get to watch new life being born every spring, it’s hard work but VERY rewarding.
  3. Smoothies – I LOVE SMOOTHIES!!!! I have one every single morning packed with veggies, fruit, and nut milk (hint hint smoothie recipes coming soon)!
  4. Rabbits – Their the most amazing animals on earth….their clean, loving, sweet, adorable, amazing, cute, etc….
  5. Horses – There’s nothing better than the thrill of riding a horse. Brushing it, feeding it, and loving it (and yes I’ve kissed a horse….DON’T JUDGE it was cute).
  6. Friends – My best friend Cam and I get together as often as we can and have literally so many adventures and take so many selfies on my sister’s phone it can get pretty crazy when we’re together.
  7. Swimming – ANYWHERE, ANYTIME, ANYPLACE! I love swimming in cold water (yes I’ve swam in March).
  8. Family – my amazing siblings are always there for me and SUPER silly. My mom and dad are the best parents any person could have. ❤
  9. Organic hair/skin products – There are so many unhealthy brands out there that basically smell good and may look good but are harming our bodies from the outside in…here’s the link to my favorite hair care products: Shampoo & Conditioner & Rosewater
  10. Religion – Recently with the virus going on we’ve had church online…which is super fun! I’m not saying I don’t like going to church every Sunday, but spending time with my family and being able to focus on God, and not those around me has really encouraged me!

 

10 of my least favorite things:

  1. Dog hair, dog hair, dog hair, and more dog hair! If you haven’t noticed we have some dogs at our house and it’s EVERYWHERE! 
  2. Uneven eyebrows – I don’t know about any of you, but uneven eyebrows drive me crazy!
  3. Did I mention dog hair? 
  4. Dirty carpets – I really don’t like the feeling of dirty carpets under my feet, so I always try to sweep them before I go to bed.
  5. Snakes – though I love all living creatures and I would never harm it without reason…snakes really freak me out! Their beady eyes and their tail *shivers*
  6. Smells – I love some scented healthy candles and essential oils I really really dislike stuffy rooms that smell like dogs (did I mention I don’t like dogs).
  7. Brushes covered with hair –  I remember coming into my sister’s room and finding her hairbrush filled with a tiny mouse! I’d immediately steal it and end the poor mouse’s existence.
  8. People who abuse animals – sure I said I don’t like dogs…but seeing animals mistreated or tied outside really bugs me. If you have an animal it’s your responsibility to keep it healthy and happy.
  9. Overcooked or undercooked food – it reminds me of chicken butchering (don’t ask).
  10. We began with this one and we shall end with this one…DOG HAIR!!! I love our dog Tirzah (and Winnie) but dog hair really gets everywhere and seems to grow!
