Hi Friends, 

Did you know people originally called World War One The Great War? They expected it to only last a few months and be the war to end all wars. November 11, 2018 is the one hundredth anniversary of the end of World War One, and all over Europe and North America people are remembering and honoring those who bravely took part in The Great War.

My novel, A Refuge at Highland Hall, is set during World War One and features a brave British pilot as the hero. The heroine is caring for orphans at her family’s estate, Highland Hall. I was fascinated to learn how the war impacted soldiers and airmen on the front, as well as families at home in England. There are many lessons we can learn about courage, faith, and standing up for what is right from people and events in history. That’s one reason I enjoy writing historical novels, and I think that’s also why readers like them.

I have several author friends who have written novels set during that era, and we’ve banded together for a special giveaway in honor of this anniversary. These are outstanding stories that will bring the era to life and give you a sense of what it was like to live through this important time in history.

The Great War Multi-Author Giveaway runs from November 8 – 12. To enter the giveaway just fill out the form below. One winner will be chosen on November 13th. They will be contacted by email and have 48 hours to respond. A US winner will receive a paperback copy of each of the six books. An international winner will receive eBook copies of the six books.

You can learn more about these authors and their books by clicking on their names: Roseanna M. White, J’nell Ciesielski, Kate BreslinPepper Basham, Michele Ule, and Carrie Turansky.

Happy Reading to All!

    My favorite type of Christian fiction is historical Christian fiction because I learn more about the period and read a story that very likely did happen to someone in that time period. Thank you, ladies, for recreating the WWI time for me to experience.

    What a wonderful give a way. A cool way to remember the end of the Great War. Our son and daughter in law reenact World War 1 and World War 2. They have learned so much more than the schools teach and have shared. So cool. I love learning about history. No I have not read any of these authors, but some of these books have been on my list. Thanks for the chance.

    I haven’t read any of the books in this giveaway, but I have read–and loved–the two first Edwardian Brides books, and the first Shadows Over England book (which I also enjoyed immensely). All the other authors in this giveaway look very interesting, too, since I’m always interested in WWI fiction. 🙂

    I have only read A Refuge in Highland Hall, and I LOVED it! I would love to read all of the others, they sound awesome!
    Christian Fiction during any war time is one of my favorite genres!!! I always devour those stories! Such hard times full of heroes and heroines unknown!!


    The time of the World Wars is very interesting to me, along with history in general. Sometimes reading about historical times in a fictional novel can make it more real to me because I can connect to the characters better (verses a history text). I’m looking forward to reading some new authors! Happy Veteran’s Day!
