Out of the Shadows

by Sally Chambers

THIS WAS A DEADLY GAME AND SHE DIDN’T WANT TO PLAY

Three months ago, Ali Lamarque’s mother died in an accident Ali is convinced she could have prevented, and what little faith she had is fading.

Grief-stricken, her father, a renowned scientist, has sold their California ranch and buried himself in his work. He will soon leave for Brazil’s Amazon rain forest on business. Ali’s relationship with her childhood best friend, Kane, is changing, and suddenly she’s being followed. Insidious and relentless, it’s harassment with no proof it ever happened.

With her life in turmoil, and against her father’s wishes, Ali takes a break from college to go with him, hoping the trip will help heal their grief and her guilt. It will give her time to sort out her feelings for Kane—and leaving would stop the stalking.

But Ali didn’t anticipate the dangers that would confront her or know that her choices would make the difference between living and dying for not only herself, but countless others.

A Novel of the Great Awakening

by Lynne Basham Tagawa

John Russell’s heart aches from the loss of his wife, but the Shenandoah Valley frontiersman needs to marry again for his daughter’s sake. At first he believes he has found the right young woman, despite their differences in background, but his faith falters when time reveals she isn’t quite what she seemed. Can he truly love her? And what about his own failings?

Unlike her disgraced sister, Abigail Williams obeys the Commandments. At least, she thinks herself a Christian until a buckskin-clad newcomer courts her. He treats her kindly but also introduces her to a sermon by the controversial preacher, George Whitefield. Her self-righteousness is shattered, and she wonders about their relationship. If she confesses her lack of faith, will John continue to love her?

The Shenandoah Road is an authentic and engaging journey back to the challenges of settling in the Shenandoah Valley” —Laura Hilton, author of Firestorm(Whitaker House, 2018)

Lighter Than Air

When Elena Bishop lost her mother at age twelve, her father lost his purpose for living. Now they’ll lose their home unless he can pay his gambling debts by the end of the summer. After praying about it, Elena believes God has given her the idea to have a family camp on the grounds of their estate.

Justin Ramsay, Elena’s neighbor, wants to go to America on a secret mission given to him by his grandmother on her death bed. His older brother believes Justin should join the military but offers him a deal. If Justin can keep Elena and the neighborhood safe until he returns with his American bride, he’ll pay for the trip to America. If not, Justin will join a regiment in India. Elena might be impulsive and accident-prone, but Justin believes she’s nothing he can’t handle.

Elena and Justin disagree over the camp, even as an attraction beyond friendship ignites between them. Within the first two weeks a little boy falls into the cold-water spring, and problems continue with threatening letters and vandalism. As more money is needed, Elena goes to Brighton to see a man who gives gas balloon rides. What she finds lands both her and Justin in a situation beyond their control. With the deadline for the debt looming, will their insistence on doing things their way give them both a happy ending, or destroy everything they’ve hoped for?
