It's her job to make sure the church's bonfire party runs smoothly, and if that means ironing out the kinks in surly Farmer Field then that's what she'll do. When she finds out what's really behind his attitude, she feels ill prepared to face his history, his family, and the danger.As Aaron and Meaghan join forces, they discover an evil so demonic it threatens not only the farm, but their lives, as well.

shanfromcanCanadaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Scary but so realJanuary 15, 2014shanfromcanCanadaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the first book I have read by Clare, and the sixth in the days of the week series. I wasn't sure what to expect but was surprised at the range of emotions I faced.
I love that each chapter begins with a verse from Psalm 22, and ends with the last verses of this Psalm, and just how like a puzzle piece they fit so well together.
This is a story with something for everyone: romance, intrigue, God and faith, and something many of us don't think about, the prince of darkness and his crew. It is easy for us to think of and speak of angels, our interactions with them, or to read books on stories of others' encounters, but I can't ever remember reading a book on just how active this fallen angel and his pals are.
It doesn't take much for satan to take over in our lives. Each and every day is a battle and we need to be prepared to stand and fight, putting on the full armor of God. Sometimes we don't realize how little it takes for satan to get his foot in the door and lead us down his path: checking out our horoscope instead of His word, dabbling in the occult, etc.
This story of Farmer Field, and the oppression on his life and farm, and his opening area on his farm for a youth bonfire and the twist and turns, romance and so much more will pull you in from the first page and keep you reading, until the very last page. You may have trouble with some of the chapters, so be prepared.
PIck it up today, even if it's not a story you would generally read. It will open your eyes and your mind.
I was given this book by bookfun.org in exchange for an honest review.
Mrs ARS5 Stars Out Of 5Scary but RelevantDecember 3, 2013Mrs ARSQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the first book by Care Revell I have read. It is part of a series but it reads as a stand alone. I was not lost in any way. We have Aaron field who is a farmer who has known such tragic circumstances in his life. He owns a farm that the church is renting out to have a bonfire party as an outreach ministry night. Meaghan Knight is the secretary who is in charge of the organizing of the party. When she and Aaron meet they both feel a connection with each other. As they get to know each other in planning the event, they are being stalked by an evil, malevolent force. Aaron's stepmother who lives with him and who he is in a legal battle is definitely a scary character. Almost right from the start weird, scary things start happening to Meaghan. As Meaghan is being stalked and haunted Aaron is beginning to see her circumstances are similar to his late wife's just before her death. Also Meaghan's own past secrets are beginning to come to the surface. Will Aaron and Meaghan survive the evil plans meant for them or will they realize that they are worthy and loved by God? Read it to find out, just don't read it at night.
This was a great suspenseful, and sometimes frightening read. I really never thought about some of the things the author suggested like maybe Not watching horror films. I always wondered why some of those movies bothered me so much. I was provided this book through bookfun.org and the opinions are my own.
loriwellerLancaster,PaAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellen BookNovember 25, 2013loriwellerLancaster,PaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Saturday's Child is not a book I would have gone out and bought, but now that I read it I want to read more of this author. It was a great book. I enjoyed the characters and the story was easy to read. The book revolved around a farmer about to lose his farm to his step-mother by less than legal means. There was practicing in the occult by the step-mother, causing bizarre occurrences on the farm. The author weaves scriptural verses throughout the book appropriately. Overall, it was thrilling, nail-biting, not to read at night, but also had a romance, family, love, and faith in it. I can't wait to read another one of Clare Revell's books.
I recieved the book from the Book Club Network for my honest review.

bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5A suspenseful novel of spiritual warfareNovember 24, 2013bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This is a novel of spiritual warfare. We Christians sometimes want to forget that there is a very real world of spiritual beings - good and evil - that impact our lives. Revell reminds us of their reality in this chilling novel. She also shows the very real dangers of dabbling in the occult.
Aaron Field is an English farmer who is about to lose his farm to his (literally) evil step-mother. Aaron has experienced much tragedy including the untimely death of his mother and later his pregnant wife. He's struggled with his Christian faith and has all but lost it.
The spiritual atmosphere at the farm is revealed when Meaghan Knight comes to talk to Aaron about the Guy Fawkes bonfire celebration the church is planning. Meaghan senses there is something evil in the farm house, especially when the step-mother is near. As Meaghan and Aaron begin to develop an attraction for each other and talk of spiritual things, the evil oppression grows and becomes deadly.
This is a pretty well written spiritual warfare thriller with lots of suspense. We see the demons appear and attack. We also see Christians' prayer coming against them. Revell has provided clear Scripture references within the novel dealing with salvation and spiritual warfare. She has also added a prayer at the end. The novel is pretty graphic with respect to the demon attacks so those sensitive to such descriptions should take care. This novel follows in the style of Frank Peretti.
One aspect of the novel I felt was a little less than perfect was the quickness of Aaron and Meaghan to fall into a lighthearted attitude after a demonic attack. That just did not seem realistic to me. Nonetheless, this is a well written novel. I recommend it to be reminded of the reality of the spiritual world we so easily ignore.
I received a complimentary egalley of this book through the Book Group Network for the purpose of this review.
