A Compassionate New Story from Susie Finkbeiner

Ever since finishing Susie Finkbeiner’s first novel, “All Manner of Things”, I’ve been waiting expectantly for a second story from this amazing debut author. Well, the time has finally come, and “Stories That Bind Us” released from Revell in the late spring of 2020! Just as before, Susie’s new story quickly worked its way into my heart and imagination, until it felt like I, too, was living in the “Godlilocks-sized town” of 1960s LaFontaine, Michigan. (“Not so big that someone could be completely invisible. Not so small that everyone knew the business of everybody else. It was just right.”) Continue reading

A Powerful Beginning to Jocelyn Green’s New Series

Jocelyn Green always leaves me in awe when I finish one of her books. With masterful prose, she manages to bring history to life in ways that make me feel as though I am living alongside her characters from the past, feeling every emotion and witnessing every event just as they do. “Veiled in Smoke”, her new release from Bethany House Publishers, is the first story in “The Windy City Saga”. This dramatic novel brings the tragic event of Chicago’s Great Fire of 1871 to vivid existence in our imagination, following two sisters as they experience the fire – and it’s aftereffects – firsthand.

An Unforgettable Start to the New “Treasures of Nome” series!

Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse make an amazing author duo, and this spring they give us the opportunity to embark on a brand-new journey with the first book in their new series, “The Treasures of Nome”. Published by Bethany House and once again set in Alaska, this saga tells the story of the Powell sisters, who live with their mother and grandfather near the 1904 gold-rush boomtown of Nome. “Forever Hidden” zooms in on middle sister Havyn. Although she is the keeper of a few secrets that she’s never shared with anyone, she is content with her life on the farm – and completely unprepared for the changes that are about to turn her life upside down.

A Terrific Start to the “Hearts of Montana” Series – Guest Review by Hayley

“Hope’s Highest Mountain” is the first in the new “Hearts of Montana” series, and what a start it was!

I loved the adventurous nature of the story… you’re bound to run into adventure when trekking through the mountains for weeks on end!  One unique aspect of this book is that for the majority of the story, there are only four characters!  Yet it is never boring, which must mean that this author is truly talented. Continue reading

Not the Conclusion I Had Hoped For… Guest Review by Hayley

The Best Book in the “Haven Manor” Series (and that’s saying a lot!)

I adore Kristi Ann Hunter’s stories, and her newest novel may be my favorite yet! “A Pursuit of Home” is the final installment in the “Haven Manor” series, but it is also very closely related to the “Hawthorne House” books (Ms Hunter’s first series). This means in a single novel she not only concludes an already-unforgettable series, but she ties both of her series together in a way that feels perfect and natural. Now that is talent! Continue reading

A Captivating Start to a New Wilderness Series

“When Strangers Intrude on Three Wild Sisters’ Hidden Mountain Life, Their World Will Never Be the Same.”

You can always count on Mary Connealy for an entertaining story filled with unique characters caught up in a captivating (and slightly unlikely!) adventure – and her new series fulfills these expectations perfectly. Continue reading

A Memorable Historical Novel Of A Grand Canyon Expedition!

My favorite genre of reading material is Christian Historical Fiction, but even I have to admit that sometimes the stories can be quite similar to each other. So, when a new novel releases that is completely out of the ordinary and is just, well, “special” – I get really excited! A new book from Revell publishers written by Regina Scott was just such a story… Why? “A Distance Too Grand” transports readers to the unique setting and premise of a Grand Canyon expedition set in 1871! Continue reading

The Newest Politano Masterpiece

Joanna Davidson Politano’s newest novel is utterly mesmerizing from start to finish – proving once again that when this author tells a story, her readers are in for a captivating journey! “Finding Lady Enderly” was published by Revell in the autumn of 2019, and was highly anticipated by fans of Joanna’s previous two novels. Each of her tales are masterfully written, combining a breathless plot with thought-provoking themes that cause us to ponder more carefully about subjects we may simply take for granted. In the case of Lady Enderly, we are urged, along with our heroine, to take a deeper look at the identities we possess, both inner and outer. Continue reading

An Enjoyable Continuation in the Brookstone Wild West Saga – Guest Review by Hayley
