The Akron RubberDucks: Affordable Family Fun

Akron-Rubberducks-Game

Peanuts! Popcorn! Ice-cold drinks! Ah, the sounds of summer ringing through the ball park. Personally, I am a huge baseball fan and recently went to my first ever (wondering why I waited so long, sigh) Akron RubberDucks game. We attend quite a few Indians games and really love the vibe of all things baseball, so you can imagine how thrilled we were to see the RubberDucks in action.

Here’s a recap our night:

On Saturday, July 22, my family and I spent our night at Canal Park, watching the RubberDucks bring in a win. Love that! Following the game, fireworks lit up the city to the tune of Rascal Flatts. And I must say, they were more than spectacular. My kiddos love fireworks so this was an awesome added bonus to the night. This game in particular was child-orientated, meaning that the hours leading to the first pitch and even after were full of fun activities for youngsters. Canal Park offers different food stands where you can grab lemonade, ice cream, popcorn, hot-dogs, plus so much more. You have to have a hog dog at a ball game! Overall, we had a wonderful night and will for sure be going to many more RubberDucks games.

A little background info:

The RubberDucks is a Minor League team and the Double-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians. Located in the heart of Akron, OH, Canal Park is only a 56-minute drive from Amish Country. With that being said, if you’re looking for affordable family fun, then you must take in a game whether you’re simply visiting or a resident of the county. Tickets are as low as 5 dollars and range to 25 dollars. What a steal!

Sunset in Old Savannah: Review by Susan Scott Ferrell

Sunset in Old Savannah

Sunset in Old Savannah – Needs More Heart

I’m most familiar with Mary Ellis’s writing because of her superb Amish writings (Wayne County series, the New Beginnings, the Miller Family series, and a host of wonderful novellas.) Ellis has a way of charming her readers in to a storyline. So when I was given the opportunity to read her latest release, Sunset in Old Savannah, even though it was not Amish, I jumped at the chance.

Sunset in Old Savannah is second in her Secrets of the South Mysteries series and follows private investigator partners Beth Kirby and Michael Preston. They are sent on assignment from their Mississippi office to Savannah, Georgia. In Savannah, their mission is to spy for one of Savannah’s high-society husbands. What IS he up to? All too soon this seemingly easy gig becomes a story of intrigue and unanswered questions. Can Beth and Michael unravel it all before it’s too late?

I was given Sunset in Old Savannah in exchange for my honest review. While it can be read as a stand-alone, many references are made from the first novel. So it looks like I need to catch up! As a Georgia girl, I will say that Ellis captured the southern vibe very well…and I think I’d like to have PI Beth as one of MY friends! That being said, Sunset in Old Savannah is not my favorite by Mary Ellis. She’s a fantastic storyteller – I just prefer her Amish writings, which seem to have more depth and more “heart.” But decide for yourself and check it out!

A Secret Courage: Review by Susan Scott Ferrell

A Secret Courage

A Secret Courage – Another Win for Tricia Goyer!

I’ve come to see author Tricia Goyer as a whiz at storytelling, both in the Amish genre and WWII historical fiction. And while I can never turn down a good Amish novel, it was refreshing to read some historical fiction. Goyer’s latest historical fiction release, A Secret Courage, is an amazing page-turner full of intrigue, romance, and mystery.

Set in England, 1943, A Secret Courage follows American Emma Hanson. Emma works in an undercover division of the WAAF, inspecting photos of Germany’s military movements. She has a keen eye and excels at what she does – nothing get in her way…until a dashing man named Will Fleming enters the picture. Will has his secrets and a life Emma knows nothing about. There is also a mysterious German spy that befriends Emma’s girlfriend, Vera. In their business, NO ONE can be trusted, including your friends. So where can Emma turn?

I was given A Secret Courage in exchange for my honest review. It was an excellent read. Your pulse will quicken, and the pages will fly as you get deeper and deeper into Emma’s world. My only criticism was the ending, which seemed abrupt. After such an intricate build in the storylines, the ending left me wanting. Of course, that could have been because I had no desire to leave England or the other characters of the novel behind. All in all, another novel to add to your TBR pile and another win for Tricia Goyer.
