By Eastern Windows – Around The World In 80 Books #2

I loved this novel! Never thought I would read something that would make me wish I could time travel back to Bombay, India in the late 1700’s, early 1800’s, but this book did. “By Eastern Windows” by Gretta Curran Browne follows Lachlan Macquarie through his early years in the British Army as he leaves his…

Egypt’s Sister – Angela Hunt

I have always enjoyed Angela Hunt as an author from the few books I’ve read from her.  Whether it be Pilgrims forging their way in the New World in “Roanoke,” or adventurers sailing across the ocean in “The Golden Cross,” I always thought her books were lively and interesting.  “Egypt’s Sister” was the first Biblical…

Flood – Brennan S. McPherson

If you read my review about the first book in the “Fall of Man Series” on Goodreads, you’ll know that I didn’t have a high opinion of the approach the author took with Cain’s story. However, Flood was the complete opposite…seriously, I couldn’t put this book down! The characters were believable and the plot was…

The Liberty Bride – Mary Lu Tyndall

There are two time periods I can’t get enough of when it comes to Mary Lu Tyndall’s novels – her pirates and her romances set during the War of 1812. Luckily for me, the sixth title in the “Daughters Of The Mayflower” Series, “The Liberty Bride,” was set in those turbulent times between America and…

Shelter of the Most High – Connilyn Cossette

“We are surrounded by killers! Surrounded!” …So said Sofea to her cousin, after discovering what a city of refuge was in the land of Israel.  Imagine escaping a near death experience, only to find out that your rescuer and the home they’ve opened to you is a refuge for people who’ve taken the life of…

Michal – Jill Eileen Smith

Ever read a Bible story and go, “Oh, that person!  Why are they acting like that?” For years, that’s been my opinion of David’s wife, Michal.  We only get a short glimpse of her in Scripture, but it isn’t a favorable impression…at least not to me.  But opinions can change, and that’s happened when I…

Redeeming Grace – Jill Eileen Smith

Earlier in the year I read Sarai by Jill Eileen Smith and really enjoyed it, so I decided to dig into another one of her books, Redeeming Grace.  The Biblical story of Ruth is my favorite.  I’ve always viewed it like an ancient Cinderella, where loss and heartache turns into true love and the couple…

The Reckless – Mary Lu Tyndall

Frederick and Reena couldn’t be more different than night and day.  He’s a preacher, she’s a pirate and together, they make an odd couple.  Odd, because one is trying to follow God and the other is running as far away as they can from Him.  Throw in an old map that’s scattered among the Caribbean…

A Light On The Hill – Connilyn Cossette

Some Biblical Fiction novels focus on people from the Bible you’d recognize; like Ruth, Esther, Sarah, etc.  Then there are some that set fictional characters in a Biblical setting, and that’s the structure of A Light On The Hill by Connilyn Cossette.  With no particular story from the Bible to set the course, the author…
