I’m delighted to tell you about A Hundred Crickets Singing, a new novel by Cathy Gohlke that releases today. It’s available in hard cover, paperback, eBook, and audio. Cathy is a good friend and very talented author who has written many award-winning books, including Night Bird Calling, The Medallion, Secrets She Kept, and Promise Me This. I’m sure this new story will stir your heart and give you much to enjoy and ponder. I’ll be giving away a copy, so keep reading to learn more!

Here’s more about A Hundred Crickets Singing . . .

In wars eighty years apart, two young women living on the same Appalachian estate determine to aid soldiers dear to them and fight for justice, no matter the cost.

1944. When a violent storm rips through the Belvidere attic in No Creek, North Carolina, exposing a hidden room and trunk long forgotten, secrets dating back to the Civil War are revealed. Celia Percy, whose family lives and works in the home, suspects the truth could transform the future for her friend Marshall, now fighting overseas, whose ancestors were once enslaved by the Belvidere family. When Marshall’s Army friend, Joe, returns to No Creek with shocking news for Marshall’s family, Celia determines to right a long-standing wrong, whether or not the town is ready for it.

1861. After her mother’s death, Minnie Belvidere works desperately to keep her household running and her family together as North Carolina secedes. Her beloved older brother clings to his Union loyalties, despite grave danger, while her hotheaded younger brother entangles himself and the family’s finances within the Confederacy. As the country and her own home are torn in two, Minnie risks her life and her future in a desperate fight to gain liberty and land for those her parents intended to free, before it’s too late.

With depictions of a small Southern town “reminiscent of writings by Lisa Wingate” (Booklist on Night Bird Calling), Cathy Gohlke delivers a gripping, emotive story about friendship and the enduring promise of justice.

      I’ve read seven of Cathy’s books and would like to read the others. I liked all of them but perhaps Band of Sisters is my favorite if I have to choose one.

      Hello!
      I read Secrets She Kept and it was so good! I really enjoyed delving into Liselotte’s secrets and the connection to her daughter. The description of Liselotte’s father as a German grandfather was so reminiscent of my own German grandfather in terms of personality (not WWII secrets!) but it felt like I was reading about him in several scenes. It was an amazing feeling! I recommended the book to a good friend of mine who also loves Christian fiction and she also thought it was wonderful!

    “William Henry Is a Fine Name” is my favorite book by Cathy Gohlke. This book was a selection for our church’s book club. Since then we have read all her books. I am a huge fan! So I come back to my “first love” but love the rest as well!!
