About the Book:

God tells the Sun to Shine is a short story about ambition, love, intrigue and forgiveness. The main character is the second-born of twin boys Esau and Jacob. Jacob struggles to come to terms with the privileges that the natural birth order accords the first-born twin Esau. He becomes so obsessed with the desire to become the alpha male in the family enterprise that he plots with their mum to upstage Esau. Although his plan succeeds, he is forced to flee the homeland after Esau plots to kill him in retaliation. For two decades, his life in exile is marked by turmoil in love, marriage and work. When a business arrangement goes pear shaped and he is faced with bankruptcy and the loss of his family, he decides instead to return to his country and face his nemesis – Esau. How will Jacob manoeuvre his way through the ordeal?

Sarah Anne’s Expedient Marriage
By Cathy Lynn Bryant & Jessica M. Dorman

Amazon Buy Button

About the Book:

Knowing he was about to die, Sarah Anne’s beloved father had arranged for her to marry Alexander Swyndhurst II. Alexander, a recent widower, had no intention of taking another wife; but after learning the young woman’s situation—that she had been the object of at least one man’s unwanted attentions, and that she would soon be left alone and unprotected—he had agreed to the marriage. He had one stipulation, however: He and Sarah Anne would live separately—he in Bristol, England, and she in Amesbury, Massachusetts Bay Colony. Sarah Anne had agreed wholeheartedly with this arrangement.

Will Alexander have a change of heart? What of the dangerous man from her past? What will happen while her husband is away—leaving her alone with only the servants? Even though there are connections, each novel in the series may be read as a stand-alone.

SPOTLIGHT TITLE: DeJa Vu Bride

SPOTLIGHT TITLE: DeJa Vu Bride

About the Book

Furious with God, Olivia Roseman vows to never trust Him again. Why should she? Once again her prayers have gone unanswered, and once again another loved one has been ripped from her. With no job and only a few dollars, Olivia makes a choice to start over again. Without God and without love. However, her handsome new boss isn’t going to make forgetting God or keeping her vow to never love again very easy. Erik Cole questions the sanity of his moving from Swamper City, Alabama to Charity, West Virginia. That is, until he hires airbrush designer Olivia Roseman to paint his monster truck. When he senses that she’s a gal who is down on her luck, he vows to do whatever he can to help her. Only problem is, the little beauty creates more challenges than one. As his feelings toward her deepen, all Erik can do is hope and pray that one day Olivia will open up her heart to Christ—and to him.

From the Book

The truth was Erik could get used to having her around. While he wasn’t in love with Olivia, he was very attracted to her—and not just physically. There was something about her that drew him. Maybe it was because she seemed lost and alone. Or maybe it was the playful side of her when she knew no one was paying attention. Whatever it was, as he treaded water and watched her swimming, he knew he wanted to pursue it and find out. He also sensed that he needed to go slow and just be her friend first. Plus, he wasn’t sure how his being her boss would affect a relationship with her. He needed to be careful to not cross over that line. As she swam froggie-style toward him, one look at her beautiful turquoise eyes and he realized that wasn’t going to be easy.

Erik’s imagination took over. He pictured Olivia swimming up to him and putting her soft hands on his shoulders. He pulled her into his arms, their eyes locked and held there until his attention drifted to her mouth. Water beads covered her lips. Lips he longed to feel against his own. In slow motion, he leaned his head toward her until their parted mouths met in a warm, wet kiss. Her soft lips played with his, consuming him until…

“What’re you doing?” Olivia’s unknowing, innocent question yanked Erik back to reality.

Good grief, man. What’s wrong with you lately? And what is it about her that has you fantasizing about kissing her? He chanced a quick glance into Olivia’s eyes just an arm length away in front of him, wondering how he was going to answer her question.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

When bad things happen, what is your reaction? Do you trust God even when you don’t understand?

There was a dark season in my life when it literally felt like an earthquake had occurred. Everything in my life seemed to be falling apart…my family, my finances, our church. And I asked God the simple question, “Why?” This book is the result of my own search for answers. In the end, God gave me illustrations that I will share with you and brought healing to my heart and my distorted view of Him. I was able to trust Him again, even though my circumstances had not changed.

Quick Pick Two

From the Book:

Home. Had the house in Haldingston ever really felt like one? Yes, at times, with her mother, but since, she had just known fear and then a wall, much like that which surrounded her now. She was reluctant to let people in, even those closest to her. What had Lorenda called the castle? A mortuary. Chills ran up her spine as she stood and quietly walked toward the door of the keep. The wind whipped up and blew Tara’s long dark hair about her face, obscuring her first view of the inside of the castle. With impatience and trepidation, she drew back a moment, pushed hard on the door, and entered the keep.

About the Book

The short story collection Just Like Jonah Wail Tales now has a workbook edition, one aimed at parents, Sunday school teachers, youth group leaders and all those who want to share their faith with 10- to 14-year-olds.

Just Like Jonah Wail Tales Workbook contains eight short stories with modern Jonahs who make bad choices and land in a whale of trouble, just like Jonah. Each of the main characters disobeys God and repents, demonstrating the biblical path to salvation. Their mistakes include giving in to fear, not doing their homework, being selfish, and holding a drinking party when the parents are away,

Through discussion questions and Scripture citations, parents and teachers can teach the lesson of Jonah to this generation with modern examples of misconduct these children experience. They can help avoid having to live wail tales of their own…
