Hurray! A new series by Jennifer Delamere begins! “Line by Line” is the first book in her “Love Along the Wires” series, and I adored each page of this delightful Christian Historical novel from Bethany House. Set in London in 1880, this is a story that is compelling, witty, and sweetly romantic – with plenty of unexpected twists to keep readers guessing along the way.
At first I thought “Line by Line” was going to be a feministic story filled with the movement for women’s rights and independence, and all the things that go along with that. (That’s not to say this is a bad thing, but I don’t generally care for stories that lean too much towards the “women don’t need men at all” mindset). Anyways, this wasn’t ultimately the case in this story, Continue reading
Although she is a relatively new author, Rachel Fordham is quickly making a name for herself with gentle historical stories filled with faith, hope, and love. Her newest release from Revell publishers is entitled “A Life Once Dreamed”, and although it is a gently moving story, it also features some pretty deep themes and character struggles.

If you read the first installment of the “Hearts of Montana” series, then you will probably be eager for this one as well.
I was excited to read “Love’s Mountain Quest”, but I’m finding that I have somewhat mixed feelings about this book. Some parts I liked and other parts I didn’t. There is enough adventure in this book to please even the bravest of thrill-seekers, as well as great lessons in faith and character. But there is also enough sadness and pain and anguish that it can feel like a bit of a downer. Continue reading
I have been excitedly awaiting the release of “A Gilded Lady” ever since I finished “The Spice King” (the first book in Elizabeth Camden’s “Hope and Glory” series). It was everything I hoped for and more! I can’t wait for Bethany House to release the third and final installment in the series – I’m hoping it’s sooner than later. . . Continue reading
Each summer I look forward to a new release from one of my favorite authors of Christian Historical Fiction… Karen Witemeyer! Her summer 2020 release from Bethany House is actually the first book in a new series called “Hanger’s Horsemen” and was well worth the wait! If you love western adventures, clean romances, and stories that will tug at your heartstrings, look no further than “At Love’s Command”. Continue reading
“A Mosaic of Wings” by Kimberly Duffy is one of the most unique and captivating works of historical fiction I’ve read in a long time. . . It is very difficult to believe this is a debut novel! Published by Bethany House, this powerful book leaps into topics I’ve never before encountered in the genre, and the result was utterly enchanting. Continue reading
For those who have followed Lisa T. Bergren’s latest series, “The Sugar Baron’s Daughters”, the last installment of “Selah” has been long-awaited. And what a finale it is. Continue reading
When I pick up a Jody Hedlund novel, I expect a story that completely captivates my imagination with vivid characters, while immersing me in a unique time and place in history. She rarely disappoints. “The Runaway Bride” is the second book in “The Bride Ships” series published by Bethany House, and is at fault for causing me to read late into the night (and simultaneously wake up tired the next morning) because I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next! Continue reading

When a gunfight occurs not far from their beloved home, with the target being one of their own, this flung-together-family realizes that their lives are about to change once again, and in ways they never could have predicted. Continue reading
I was so excited to hear that bestselling author Amanda Cabot had released a new series! “Out of the Embers” is the first story in the “Mesquite Springs” saga, and was released by Revell in the spring of 2020. This emotional story will undoubtedly appeal to any fan of Christian Historical Fiction, as it combines masterful storytelling with a compelling plot and lifelike characters. Altogether, the result is a story that stays in your heart long after reaching the last page… Continue reading
