Coming in 2011 from Revell ~ Historical

Here's a look at a few of Revell's historical releases for 2011.

I'm thrilled Kathleen Morgan has returned to writing ~ I've always loved her stories. If A Great Catch is anything like Making Waves it will be lots of fun and I can't wait to read Diana's take on Martha ~ I've always had a soft spot for her when reading her Biblical story.

Come back soon for a sneak peek at more Revell releases from Laura Frantz, Sarah Sundin, Bonnie Leon and Ann H Gabhart.

For now, your thoughts on these ones?

A Heart Divided by Kathleen Morgan

It is 1878 and the Caldwells and Wainwrights have been feuding for decades. Still, Sarah Caldwell has misgivings when her father pressures her into distracting a ranch hand while he and her brothers rob the Wainwright place. When it becomes clear that hand is actually Cord Wainwright, Sarah realizes she needs to lay low. B
ut Cord spots her in town and, with the sheriff away, makes a citizen's arrest, dragging her off to the Wainwright ranch until the sheriff's return. As the feud boils over, Cord and Sarah make a most inconvenient discovery--they are falling in love. Can they betray their families for love? Or will their families betray them?

Against the beautiful and wild backdrop of the Rocky Mountains comes this sweeping saga of romance, betrayal, and forgiveness from beloved author Kathleen Morgan.

A Great Catch by Lorna Seilstad

It is the beginning of a new century at Lake Manawa Resort in Iowa, but some things never change. When 22-year-old Emily Graham's meddlesome aunts and grandmother take it upon themselves to find her a husband among the resort guests, the spunky suffragist is determined to politely decline each and every suitor. She has neither the time nor the need for a man in her busy life.

Carter Stockton, a recent college graduate and pitcher for the Manawa Owls baseball team, intends to enjoy every minute of the summer at Lake Manawa, Iowa, before he is forced into the straitlaced business world of his father.

When Emily crashes into Carter at a roller skating rink, neither could guess what would come next. Will Carter strike out? Or will Emily cast her vote for a love that might cost her dreams?

The perfect summer novel, A Great Catch will enchant readers with its breezy setting and endearing characters.

Martha by Diana Wallis Taylor

Perhaps one of the most misunderstood and misrepresented characters of the New Testament is Martha. Often painted in the colors of reproach, Martha seems to be the poster child for how not to be a follower of Jesus. From the mind of Diana Wallis Taylor comes this touching, well-researched portrayal of Martha of Bethany, sister of Mary and Lazarus. Through Taylor's lush descriptions and inspired combination of imagined and recorded dialogue, Martha's world--her trials, triumphs, and loves--vibrantly comes to life.

Follow Martha as she is jilted by her betrothed, falls in love with a Roman soldier, grieves the death of her father, cares for her siblings, and serves her Lord with dignity and grace.

Readers will never read the biblical story of Martha the same way again.

Very much looking forward to Martha. Sounds amazing. I might even cave in for all of these, actually.

All three look like great books to read. Love the cover of A Great Catch. And the Martha story sounds very intriguing.

I can't wait to read A HEART DIVIDED and MARTHA. And thank you, Relz, for sharing A GREAT CATCH. Revell's art department do such a wonderful job. I was just tickled to death when I first saw the cover.

I have been wondering what happened to Kathleen Morgan. Kept looking for her next book in CBD catalogs and the Christian store. When my niece came to live with us for awhile we feasted on Kathleen's books all during the dreary winter,not to mention Cindy Woodsmall and some others. Laura,you weren't around back then(well,you were...just didn't know it ). Excited about Kathleen's new book! I have a stack to read curled up by the fireplace this winter. Reading A Hope Undaunted!!! Love reading thick books...Laura writes some nice thick ones!
