Julie Lessman recommends
A Stray Drop of Blood (2005)
(Stray Drop of Blood, book 1)
Roseanna M White
"Haunting and powerful are two words that come to mind at the close of reading Roseanna M. White s debut novel, A Stray Drop of Blood. Not since Francine Rivers Mark of the Lion trilogy has a book and its characters captured me so completely. From its rich, historical prose that depicts the era of Christ with startling reality, to a compelling love story that will both jolt and seize your heart, this is one of those rare novels that haunts you centuries beyond the last page. Amid the seething unrest of Roman tyranny and Hebrew uprising, a spell-binding saga unfolds, unleashing startling twists of both fate and heart that will leave you utterly breathless."
Love of Her Own (2010)
(Heart of the West , book 3)
Maggie Brendan
"Brendan's gentle style of prairie romance is reminiscent of Janette Oke . . . capturing the heart of the old West with romance that will make you sigh."
Secrets of the Heart (2011)
(Ravensmoore Chronicles, book 1)
Jillian Kent
"A plot so unique and compelling, pages fly and sleep will be lost... and never more happily so."
Return to Shirley Plantation (2013)
Carrie Fancett Pagels
"Rich historical research, a wonderful plot twist, and a tender tale of love amidst the clash of the blue and the gray."
