Eighty years apart, two women from the same manor aid soldiers and fight for justice. As North Carolina secedes in 1861, Minnie tries to help her brothers—on opposing sides—and free the family’s slaves. In 1944, a storm rips the attic apart, exposing a hidden room and secret-filled trunk, fueling estate worker Celia’s determination to expose the truth. 432 pages, softcover from Tyndale.

The McAlister siblings have been searching for their missing sister since they were taken to Canada as British Home Children in 1909.

When Emma is accused of a crime, can Garth prove her innocence—and find his sister? 320 pages, softcover from Multnomah.

After a deadly explosion at her munitions factory kills her best friend, Rosalind longs to escape and begin a new life. Armed with a false ID card, she flees to another factory in Scotland. But when RAF captain Alex Baird arrives to investigate and prevent a second blast, things get complicated. Should Rosalind risk telling him everything? 400 pages, softcover from Bethany.

As the French and Indian War threatens York, Virginia, Esmee grieves a decade-old failed relationship. Meanwhile, Captain Henri Lennox returns to complete the lighthouse guarding Chesapeake Bay—until the colonial government orders him on a secret mission. Will the conflict drive him and Esmee further apart, or will their shared vision bring them together again? 416 pages, softcover from Revell.

Beth Tremayne has always been drawn to adventure. During her childhood, she fed that desire by exploring every inch of the Isles of Scilly. Now, after stumbling across an old collection of letters and a map buried on her family’s property, she’s found more adventure than she ever anticipated in the hunt for pirate treasure. But in order to discover where the clues lead, she must search alongside Lord Sheridan, a man she finds insufferable. 384 pages, softcover from Bethany House.

American Grace Tonquin works tirelessly to rescue French Jewish children from the Nazis. When she returns to Oregon with two orphans, trauma from the Holocaust threatens her family. Fifty years later, Addie Hoult searches for the missing Tonquin family to save her friend Charlie from a genetic disease. Can she find them—and heal his broken past? 384 pages, softcover from Tyndale.

We wish you a heartfelt happy Valentine’s Day!

  7. Donna Haffenden

    Historic novels are such a neat way to “know” history. I am in awe of all the research that goes into these novels and the way that the characters and events are fleshed out. We need to know these stories because so many of the people who lived them are no longer with us to answer the questions. All of these books are on my “to be read list”. Thank you Authors!

    I love book contests although I have never won one. I did win an item from one of my favorite author’s years ago and have been mentioned twice in a couple of books. I have been a book lover since I was a child. My mom said I would memorize my books when I wasn’t old enough to read and then read them back to myself. I can never have to many books.
