With the men of her family away, Ellis must stand courageous and decide who she can trust.

This novel looks interesting, but I hope it will avoid the usual romance genre pitfalls. 

Sarah’s Garden by Kelly Long (January 8, 2019)

Release date: January 8, 2019

Author: Kelly Long

Plot Summary:

Kelly Long is releasing the first installment in her Patch of Heaven series early next month. The novel tells the story of Sarah King. Quite by accident, Sarah has fallen in love. But this love is forbidden (gasp), and could cost her everything she holds dear (of course). Tucked into the majesty of Pennsylvania’s Allegheny Mountains is a garden Sarah King has been nurturing for years. She never feels more alive than when she is alone with her thoughts and her Creator among the delicate rows of plants. But then duty calls her away from her beloved garden and into a world she knows little about. Grant Williams, a ‘handsome’ young veterinarian, has left the city to open a rural practice among the Amish (why?). Within minutes of meeting shy but feisty Sarah King, he is captivated by her. As their feelings grow for one another, Sarah insists they can never be together. Marrying Grant would mean being uprooted from her home, her family, and her community. Throughout the cold Pennsylvania winter, with her garden tucked away until spring, Sarah begins crafting a quilt that illustrates her pain (because why not). Can anything lasting blossom from a love that’s forbidden? My question is, can anything good come from another Amish fiction novel that sounds like a rendition of Romeo and Juliet set in Lancaster County? I hope this novel will surprise me, and convince me that the endless slew of Amish fiction can be meaningful.

The novel tells the stories of Tayler Hale and Thomas Smith. Tayler is ahead of her time as one of the first women naturalists. She has always loved adventure and the great outdoors, and her remote job location also helps keep her away from the clutches of the man to whom she once made a foolish promise. It seems she must keep running, however, and in secret, her boss from Yellowstone arranges for a new job . . . in Alaska. The popular Curry Hotel continues to thrive in 1929 as more visitors come to Alaska and venture into the massive national park surrounding Denali. Recent graduate Thomas Smith has returned to the hotel and the people he considers family. But when a woman naturalist comes to fill the open position and he must work with her, everything becomes complicated. The summer brings unexpected guests and trouble to Curry. With his reputation at stake, will Thomas be able to protect Tayler from the danger that follows? Unfortunately, this looks like a very typical Peterson plot. I was hoping for more after the promising book that preceded this one. Maybe Peterson and Woodhouse will surprise us.

Upcoming Christian Novels: American Omens by Travis Thrasher

American Omens: The Coming Fight for Faith - By: Travis Thrasher

Release date: February 12, 2019

Author: Travis Thrasher

Travis Thrasher, a well-known author of Christian fiction in varying genres, is releasing a new standalone novel titled American Omens in February of 2019. Thrasher has always been a bit of an enigma as a writer. However, it is apparent that he has trouble settling down in a genre. There is nothing wrong with writing in multiple genres, but in Thrasher’s case, it seems like his talent is spread too thin. As demonstrated in The Second Thief, Thrasher’s strong point is psychological/suspense fiction, and it seems like he is returning to his roots in this new novel. In the US in 2038, a secret society is imposing its agenda on outspoken Christian leaders, killing when necessary. Corporate regulations restrict religious expressions and policies. A recent convert, Hutchence, uses creative and guerilla-like techniques to spread the Gospel of Jesus. This enigmatic man enlists a rag-tag group of individuals to help him proclaim a warning to the rest of the country: God is sending his judgment on our nation, and his first act will be to destroy Chicago. One recruit is a young and talented computer analyst who specializes in mastering algorithms for corporate and political use, and who is on the run from the company she works for, while trying to discover the truth about her father’s mysterious disappearance. Another is a conspiracy-theory-junkie & survivalist who has discovered proof of assault on people of the Christian faith. And a widower with three girls is recruited by this mysterious Hutchence to help lead a return to God in America. There is so much that could go wrong with this novel, and yet so much potential for good. I hope that Thrasher will paint the frequently used religious/political persecution plotline in a new light, and avoid falling into the typical traps these types of novels usually do.
