by Donna L.H. Smith

A Former Dance Hall Girl. A Handsome Young Doctor. Can Rose overcome her past? That’s Rose’s Redemption

Rose Rhodes changed not only her name after the tornado; she changed her outward appearance. No more was she Rosalie O’Roarke, former dance hall girl. She loves her new work as a nurse-in-training to handsome Doctor Scott Allison. As Scott and Rose’s relationship begins to change from professional to personal, they must deal with figures from Rose’s past who make life anything but easy. Rose is concerned that the town will discover her dance hall girl past, especially when Jake Thomas, the man who viciously beat her, asks all over town where Rosalie O’Roarke went. But both Rose and Scott are in for surprise encounters with Christ that will change their lives forever and help them see His plan for them. In fact, they will see God at work all over New Boston.

Rose’s Redemption won second place in the 2017 Golden Leaf Award at the Advance Novelist Retreat and was a finalist in the American Christian Fiction Writers’ Phoenix Rattler Contest.

Welcome to Tabor Heights

by Michelle L. Levigne

Welcome to Tabor Heights:

A friendly little town on Ohio’s North Coast, where sweet romance is always in the air.

Here you’ll be able to explore the lives of the members of the congregation of Tabor Christian Church in the space of two years. The stories overlap, and there’s no one right place to start.

Just like any small town, you come in, you meet someone, you hear their story and get to know them, and they introduce you to their friends, tell you something about them, and you learn those stories. As you get to know these new friends, they introduce you to other people, and tell you about other interesting stories in town.

It’s the same way with Tabor Heights. Start with the story that interests you the most, and then branch out.

Settle back and enjoy your visit.

Welcome!

HOMESPUN:

Before the Tabor Hts novels began, Joel Randolph and Emily Keeler met during summer stock. He was a theater tech director, she was a former Hollywood starlet. During that summer, they shared dreams, laughter, and pain, and dared to join their lives to create the Homespun Theater, and a home together.

SILVER HEARTS:

Rose came to Tabor to help her brother Joel’s family during a time of crisis. She turned her back on her past, and her domineering father, and gained a new family and home. A suitor from childhood tracking her down, and a distinguished gentleman friend weren’t part of her plan — but they made life interesting.

ONE SMALL CHILD:

Last spring, a disgruntled actor tried to steal Max’s identity and destroy her writing career. As Christmas approaches, Max and Tony are preparing for their wedding, but the fallout from spring lands on them in a big way: in the form of a tiny baby abandoned in the Homespun Theater lobby.

SUMMER SONG:

Three years after the events of FIRESONG. Dani and Kurt can’t manage to get much time together, thanks to constant travel in their ministry jobs. Several weeks at a music ministry boot camp gives them a chance to be together. Time together in one place would be perfect, if they weren’t dealing with politics, nasty tricks, grudges, and raging egos.

Blood Moon Redemption

by Judy DuCharme

An ancient relic, a puzzling prophecy, and a young woman tied together through the ages . . .

Throughout history, blood moons have always been surrounded by persecution and provision, great trials and triumphs. The blood moons of 1493-1494 provided a new world for the Jewish people. In 1949-1950, the blood moons gave them Israel, and the following eclipses presented the Jewish people Jerusalem in 1967-1968. Now a new set of blood moons is on the horizon, and Tassie’s family is certain they will bring about great change.

Tassie, named for a lost religious relic, has her sights set on her career and love, and she doesn’t have time for silly children’s stories. Dismissing the blood moons as circumstance, her unbelief threatens to keep her from her destiny. When Tassie finds herself in the center of worldwide turmoil and a terrorist plot, can she accept her family history and fulfill her place in the future of Israel? Or will the country of her heritage finally fall to its many enemies?

Blood Moon Redemption is an end-times thriller that will keep you riveted until the very last moonrise.
