Publisher's Weekly

The author of the parenting staple Honey for a Child's Heart expands her role to become a chatty adviser for Christian women interested in exploring the literary world. Hunt's passion for books is infectious as she discourses on a broad range of issues from "Why Read?" to the classics, genre fiction, nonfiction, book groups, poetry, the Bible, making time to read and a host of related topics. As well as listing her choices for best books in each of the categories she discusses, Hunt adds recommendations from outside sources (including editors, housewives, librarians and Mitford maven Jan Karon), which are boxed on the pages. The resulting compilation of titles resembles a list one might obtain from a well-read book group. Hunt also tackles some of the touchier issues for conservative Christian readers, such as the value of reading selected books that contain profanity and sexual situations. There's homespun wisdom ("It's a good rule to never pronounce judgments on books you haven't read"), as well as moral commentary (Hunt calls Snow Falling on Cedars "beautifully written, but with some unnecessary sexual scenes"). Interspersed throughout the text are her effusive accolades such as "My all-time favorite" or "that title is the best!" Hunt's gushy asides are easily pardoned because they're just one part of her unbridled enthusiasm. It's a satisfyingly eclectic mix for book junkies, which doubles as an introduction to reading for the reluctant reader. "The right thing said in the right way, ah, that's the delight of good books," writes Hunt. There's much to delight in here. (Jan.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    I absolutely LOVED this book. Hunt has a warm and winsome way of writing as she draws us into the world of good books. There are wonderful quotations sprinkled throughout the book and many, many recommendations for books to read. I'll be reading for a long time from the list of books I made after finishing Hunt's book. This book would also make a wonderful gift for anyone who loves to read.

    As a librarian, I found Honey for a Woman's Heart an invaluable resource! Hunt is not one-sided in her recommendations, but provides balanced fair reviews. I especially appreciated her commitment to a Biblical worldview and to the Truth as the arbiter of all good books.
