Lori Benton's picture

Lori Benton

USA flag

Lori Benton was born and raised east of the Appalachian Mountains, surrounded by early American and family history going back to the 1600s.

Her novels transport readers to the 18th century, where she brings to life the Colonial and early Federal periods of American history, creating a melting pot of characters drawn from both sides of a turbulent and shifting frontier, brought together in the bonds of God's transforming grace.

When she isn't writing, reading, or researching 18th century history, Lori enjoys exploring the mountains with her husband - often scouring the brush for huckleberries, which overflow the freezer and find their way into her signature huckleberry lemon pound cake.

Lori Benton recommends
A Bound Heart (2019)
Laura Frantz
"From start to finish, A Bound Heart is an absorbing, tenderhearted story about the grace of second chances."
Memories of Glass (2019)
Melanie Dobson
"With WWII-era and present-day storylines equally enthralling and skillfully entwined, I couldn't stop turning the pages of Melanie Dobson's Memories of Glass. Drawn from history to highlight the Dutch resistance to Hitler's Nazi regime, the story is sweeping in its scope of setting, each vividly alive on the page, and its pace felt like a snowball rolling downhill, gaining in suspense as the life-and-death stakes mounted. Peopled with characters heroic, flawed, and unforgettable, Memories of Glass is sure to please longtime fans of Melanie Dobson's books as well as readers new to her novels."
The Healing of Natalie Curtis (2021)
Jane Kirkpatrick
"A heroine worth rooting for--all the more because this story is true."
