Like all citizens since the Ruining, Carrington Hale knows the importance of this day. But she never expected the moment she’d spent a lifetime preparing for—her Choosing ceremony—would end in disaster. Ripped from her family, she’ll spend her days serving as a Lint, the lowest level of society. She knows it’s her duty to follow the true way of the Authority.
But as Carrington begins this nightmare, rumors of rebellion rattle her beliefs. The whispers contradict everything she’s been told; yet they resonate deep within.

Through Waters Deep by Sarah Sundin
Series: Waves of Freedom
Release Date: July 2015
Genre: Historical Romance, Fiction, Mystery
Calling all Nancy Drews! Through Waters Deep by Sarah Sundin is truly remarkable. It’s a mixture of a Nancy Drew mystery with a bit of romance and lots of history. The author uses realistic characters that will make you feel as if you are part of their everyday lives. Readers will find themselves staying up until the wee hours in the morning just to see what occurs next. Laughter, crying, joy, and excitement may also be experienced. This is a must read for everyone and I pray that it will deepen appreciation for the U.S. Navy. Read the rest of this entry

I was completely blown away by this novel. Mesu Andrews has a talent for writing biblical historical books.
It’s refreshing to know that there are some good Christian novels out there that are worth reading. It’s fascinating, engaging, thrilling, and causes one to stop and think. Mesu Andrews also knows how to tie in the Word of God without it being so overwhelming or preachy. We all live in fear of something, whether it’s death or childbearing like Anippe or something else. It’ll definitely change your perspective. Read the rest of this entry
