The Five Lessons a Millionaire Taught Me About Life and WealthI’ve read and enjoyed many novels by Evans, but this is the first non-fiction book by him that I’ve read. It was a quick, motivational read. Much of what he suggests correlates with Dave Ramsey’s principles. (Dave Ramsey has written books about living debt-free, and hosts his own financial radio talk show.) While Evans didn’t have any “new” ideas, he did have a lot of good reminders.

The Sunflower : A NovelWhen Christine’s fiance calls off the wedding, her friend Jessica decides that Christine needs a change of scenery. So together, the two women travel to Peru on a missions trip. There, Christine meets Paul, a doctor who has dedicated his life to helping the orphans of Peru.

I have always enjoyed Evans’ novels. True, they are quite sentimental, but the plot is usually entertaining. The Sunflower wasn’t what I was hoping for. It really felt like a cleaned-up version of a Danielle Steele novel, with a predictable, unrealistic plot and a nice tidy ending.
