A new Firmament book!!!!!!

Okay, so I might just be a little too excited about this book. But really, Grace is one of very, very few sci-fi authors I actually like and her books are the only ones I really read. So when she comes out with a new one, I kind of get excited.

Today, she's revealing her GORGEOUS book cover. Seriously! Just look at it:



And she has a tantalizing description to go with it, too.

About the Book




You never escape your past

Andi Lloyd is more comfortable than most with interstellar travel, but she's not prepared for the perils and peculiarities of a world she has all but forgotten—the planet Earth. As the Surveyor undergoes repairs, her brother August receives a message with news that will send both of them across the world to a place he never wanted to visit again.

Neither of them are prepared to be thrust into a world of political intrigue amid the tangled forests and crumbling ruins of Austria.  They aren't prepared to encounter wild animals and endure cross-country hikes.  And they definitely aren't prepared to face it all alone.

But despite the dangers they must press on into the unknown to find a way to save Andi's life, to decide the fate of Earth itself—and to rescue a lonely girl who just happens to be their little sister.


Whoa! Andi and August have a sister? I don't know about you, but I want to read this book. A lot!

Onward and Westward!



About the Book

After duty as an ambulance driver in World War I, Ellie Morgan returns to Chicago to take up her share of the work in her grandparents’ department store. Ellie doesn’t want to alienate her family or disappoint them, but despite a six year effort to settle in, she feels increasingly trapped in store routine. Meanwhile, her grandmother urges her to marry a local politician and help him succeed in his chosen field. Ellie’s grandfather, however, wants to see her happy and independent. “Go West, young woman, go west,” he advises paraphrasing a popular quotation of the day. So with Granddad’s help, Ellie secures a job on a ranch in Colorado and sets out to prove that she has the necessary character to succeed at a third vocation.

When Aldon Leitzinger meets Ellie’s train in Clifton Colorado, he introduces himself as the foreman of the ranch. But the more people Ellie meets in the community, the more apparent it becomes that she is in demand to fill a number of roles for which she is not prepared. Desperate to prove herself, she settles in to please everyone, a task that puts her at risk of failure in every attempt at finding a new and happier life.

Blog Tour: Dreams and Devotion




I'm excited to share a little about Sarah Holman's new book, Dreams and Devotion. I've heard a lot of good things about this book.

About the Book


Some dreams will be dashed, and their devotion will be tested.
Dara's life is full of farm work and worries, especially now that her older brother is a priest in a far off city. Yet she still has time to dream of the life she hopes will someday be. She dreams of marrying her dear friend and the worries of her family ending. Now, the selfishness of one person threatens her very way of life.
Dresden's initial excitement about living a life devoted to the service of God quickly is dashed on the rocks of reality. The life of a priest is nothing like what he imagined. To make matters worse, he finds out his family back in his home village is on the brink of disaster. Torn between his vows and his love for his family, what will he choose?

Swords of Time Cover Reveal

Today, we have a special guest, Sarah Allerding. Her new book is coming out later this year. I'm looking forward to reading it soon! However, first we have a beautiful cover, designed by Perry Elisabeth Design, to reveal!



 Isn't it pretty? Now, I suppose you probably wonder what the book is about.



Braden has one goal: knighthood.

Unfortunately, he lives on a horse farm in modern day America with his uncle, his younger brother, and an aunt who absolutely hates him.

Against all odds, Braden and his brother, Jamie, stumble across a pair of special swords that sweep them back into medieval times. They land near a castle whose lord has a task for them.

His older son is lost somewhere in time, and only someone who can control the Swords of Time can save him.

With the goal of knighthood suddenly in sight, Braden's not sure he wants to leave, but he wishes to impress the lord. Can he protect his brother, find the lost heir, and fulfill his dreams, or will the lord's younger son ruin everything?


About the author:

Sarah is a homeschool graduate who enjoys using her imagination to write fiction. She is working on a degree in theology and hopes to eventually work in the church. She also enjoys umpiring baseball, writing devotions and Bible studies, reading fiction, and playing the guitar.

Ruth's Story continues


Of all the characters in my books, I think Ruth (Brookings) Carson is the one who is the most like me. She isn't a carbon copy of me, but she is closer than any other. Which is probably why I really like this particular novel which releases today. This novel continues Ruth's story from a different perspective; that of an orphan she and Micah take in. All the Way My Savior Leads is Henry's story and how Micah and Ruth helped him. Read on for more information and to enter the giveaway.

About the Book

 Caroline and I walked out the back door and went into the barn.
“What are we going to do?” Caroline asked.
“Head out on our own. Saddle Whitey, please.”
Caroline’s mouth gaped open. “They’ll find us.”
“I know.”
Caroline sighed. “What can we do then?”
I shook my head. “We can stick together. Always.”

And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

No longer could I say I was lonely. But oh, how I wish I could! Who could have done such a thing to the Creator of the world? Who had so much hatred for Him?

Excerpt



He approaches the woman and speaks quietly with her. “Woman, why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou?”
Keeping her head down, she says, “Sir, if thou have born Him hence, tell me where thou has laid Him and I will take Him away.”
The Creator’s Son looks at her for a short time, then opens His mouth. “Mary.” The way He says it. It speaks of His love for her troubles and of His compassion. He doesn’t scold her for weeping, He gently and quietly says her name. “Mary.”
