The Isaac Project

25985691

REBEKAH

In the fourth grade we made little rockets out of old film canisters, baking soda, and vinegar. Put in the ingredients, snap on the lid, shake it up, and watch out. The pressure built and –pew– that small black cylinder shot to the sky. I felt like that outdated film container.

The Isaac Project is a really great story. It takes the Biblical story of Isaac and Rebekah and modernizes it in a very unique way. I found this story to be action-packed and timely in its message.

  1. This is the only one of Sarah’s I haven’t read yet, but I want to!

    I’ve got the first line from Janet Ferguson’s new release, Magnolia Storms, on my blog today, but I’m going to share the first line from my current read: Many Sparrows, by Lori Benton (Oh. My. Word! ❤️ )

    “Jeremiah Ring had witnessed death as often as the next man on the Allegheny frontier, but in all his thirty years he had encountered no deaths more dismaying than those confronting him now.”

    It feels wrong, somehow, to follow that up with ‘have a good weekend’, but I hope you do! 🙂

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from A Christmas to Remember by Linda Brooks Davis:

    1908 4 days until Christmas
    “The line of delicate stitches blurred to a crimson smudge.”

  3. That first line is amazing. I need to read this!

    I’m sharing about “The League and the Lantern” by Brian Wells over at my blog today, but the closest book to me (which is on my Kindle at the moment) is “All of You” by Sarah Monzon.

    Present Day, 100 Miles off the Coast of Virginia

    Lieutenant Michael “Finch” Carrington pulled up the zipper of his green flight suit and stared at the mass on the opposite rack.

  4. A Secret Courage by Tricia Goyer :
    October 15, 1940
    Will Fleming sprinted down the street. The soles of his black Oxfords pounded the cobblestones, yet his footfalls went unheard over the air raid siren’s howl.

  5. I don’t think my kids even know there was such a thing as film canisters. They were useful for a lot of random things, but I never made a rocket out of one!

    I’m sharing from Jewel of the Stars by Adam David Collings on my blog today, but I’m currently reading Uncharted Hope by Keely Brooke Keith. Here’s the first line:

    At half past nine, boots scuffed the pavestones outside the medical cottage, followed by a rapid-fire knock.
