From the moment Deborah Raney opened the cover of "Tip and Mitten" in first grade, she has loved to read. Growing up on a farm in Kansas, she was inspired by Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House on the Prairie" series, and first tried her hand at novel writing at the age of twelve. But after accidentally putting airplanes in a story set in the 1700s, she tore up her manuscript in frustration and vowed never to write historical fiction again. More than a quarter of a century passed before she dared to attempt another book.

A Million Little Choices (2023)
Tamera Alexander
"This engrossing, redemptive story kept me guessing and hoping as I followed a fascinating cast of characters on their journeys toward healing and faith. Tamera Alexander digs deep into the myriad seemingly small choices we each make every day - choices that can lead to devastation or to triumph, depending on the path we choose. A lush and moody setting and Alexander's consummate skill with words draw you in and don't let go."

The Happy Life of Isadora Bentley (2023)
Courtney Walsh
"Courtney Walsh can't write fast enough to suit me!."

To Enchant a Lady's Heart (2023)
(British Are Coming , book 1)
Robin Lee Hatcher
"Hatcher's newest novella offers the same sweet romance and page-turning storyline you've come to expect from this author if you've read her before. If you haven't, you're in for a treat! To Enchant a Lady's Heart is, in a word, well...enchanting."
