Happy Friday! It’s time to party!
Today I’m part of a Cover Release Party for author Pepper Basham’s second historical romance, The Thorn Keeper, set to release in February 2016.
Here’s my bottom line: “The Thorn Bearer has all the good stuff that makes it fun to while away a day or so in another world—with the added benefit of Spiritual Truth! Exactly what those grand adventures I read as a teen were missing.”
And here are a few of my favorite quotes from the book . . .
Maybe now you can see why I’m looking forward to the second book’s release! The blurb below shares some details about how the series continues . . .
“With her past in shambles, how can she fashion a future of hope?
Catherine Dougall’s past of manipulation has left her future in threads. With a new faith, she longs to take the remnants of her life and make something beautiful, but shame, societies’ judgments, and the natural consequences of an unplanned pregnancy test her newfound hope. Dr. David Ross doesn’t help either.
His kindness, sacrifice, and tenderness tempt her to impossible dreams.
A fallen woman doesn’t merit a fairytale.
David Ross has made every effort to keep his life above reproach. His passion for the sick pumps fresh purpose through his choices, but without financial support to maintain his war hospital, all is lost. When his notorious aunt offers an easy solution, David is tempted to give in to her demands. But his growing affection for the reformed flirt, Catherine Dougall, breaks down the carefully constructed wall around his heart and offers him an unexpected choice.
When the worst of war tears them apart, can love renew the memory of what was lost? Or will tragedy steal away their hope forever?
From the beautiful Derbyshire countryside to the trenches of World War I, Catherine and David must learn to trust in a God who designs a masterpiece out of brokenness and fashions hope in the most unlikely places.”
Sounds like a fun story! So now without further ado, let me introduce The Thorn Keeper – available February 28, 2016 from Vinspire Publishing!
