History

The Promise of Dawn

Years ago, when I learned Lauraine Snelling would be at my first writers’ conference, I had stars in my eyes. I adored her Blessing books. They never fail to speak to my Scandinavian heart (admittedly, I’m Swedish, but Norway is close enough). 531 more words

#BookReview: A Name Unknown by Roseanna M. White

With a mystery to solve and characters to champion, A Name Unknown is a delightful read! Rosemary Gresham and Peter Holstein are refreshingly unique in their characterization, and I loved the humor and wit of the banter they share. 257 more words
