Give the Lady a Ride - Review

Give the Lady a Ride by Linda Yezak is so much more than just another romance, although there is plenty of that, too.  It is also a story of deepening faith and learning to trust God despite the circumstances. Patricia Talbot has inherited a Texas ranch from her uncle. She and her friend Marie arrive at the ranch and are met by two good looking ranch hands. Romance ensues – a fairly uncomplicated affair for Marie and Chance, and a much more complex awakening for Pat and Talon. As a way to earn…See More

God's Daughter - a review

God’s Daughter by Heather Day Gilbert is a must read for historical fiction fans, those interested in Viking lore and culture, or just anyone looking for an emotionally charged and gripping read. It is written from the perspective of a Viking woman named Gudrid sometime around 1000 AD when these fierce warriors were exploring the northern seas. Most of the tale is told from a first person, present perspective, heightening the immediacy and emotional honesty of the story. Gudrid has become a…See More

Destiny's Hands - Violet Nesdoly

Destiny’s Hands by Violet Nesdoly is a story of the Hebrew exodus from Egypt under Moses, told from the point of view of Bezalel, a master craftsman and goldsmith.  I enjoyed the different point of view as well as Bezalel’s gradual transformation from a skeptic to a strong man of faith.  Romance and personal redemption are woven throughout the familiar tale. It was a lovely read which I highly recommend. See More

'An Unexpected Glory' an unexpected classic

As I read An Unexpected Glory by Marcia Laycock, I had the sense that I was reading a Christmas classic.  It’s a tale of unlikely heroes and unexpected grace, right up there with O’ Henry’s The Gift of the Magi. In the story, Pastor Steve, who runs a men’s shelter, is hit with the news that his major yearly fundraiser is in jeopardy when many of the cast get sick and are under quarantine.  In desperation, he and his assistant recruit the shelter’s patrons – a motley crew of homeless and…See More

MY PUBLISHED WORK

AND THE BEAT GOES ON
ISBN - 978-1-60693-199-8


Canadian born archeologist Mark Graham unearths a remarkable discovery while at a dig in the mountains of Zimbabwe – pterodactyl remains and giant human bones buried together. Speculation leads to the possible existence of a mythical race known as ‘Nephilim’, a pre-flood people alleged to have descended from both gods and men.

But skepticism and sabotage delay Mark and his team as the dig site is compromised, putting their discovery – as well as his very life – in grave danger. Deceived and framed by trusted friends and colleagues, Mark struggles to safeguard his findings and protect his reputation in order to unearth the mystery behind the Nephilim.

 

 



MY MOTHER THE MAN-EATER
ISBN - 978-1-60976-585-9

Loaded with humor, action, intrigue and romance, My Mother the Man- Eater is the exciting story of a woman whose search for meaning in life finds an unexpected outlet. Joleen Allen is on the hunt for a man. Unfortunately, every time the mother of five meets one, he falls for one of her daughters instead! At forty-four, Joleen has lived a tough life. She became a mother at 16, and her five daughters are now grown. Her ex-husband, Harold, is out of prison and back in the picture, looking for revenge. He’ll stop at nothing – even murder – to ruin Joleen’s reputation as well as her relationship with their daughters. My Mother the Man-Eater makes for some truly tempting and redemptive reading.

 

 

 

 
PLAY IT AGAIN

ISBN: 978-1-61204-392-0

Sparks fly when an ex rock and roll junkie and a stuffy accountant rendezvous at a local resort, but neither are prepared for the emotional entanglements, family complications, and a threat from the past that unexpectedly resurfaces. Set in the 1980′s, this story brings two opposing forces together in a clash of romance and danger, while its musical undertones highlight the theme that God can turn anything into beautiful music.

PLAY IT AGAIN is the much anticipated prequel to Tracy’s debut novel AND THE BEAT GOES ON. Find out where Mark Graham’s journey began in this, the story of his parents.

 

 

 

 

 

WIND OVER MARSHDALE

ISBN: 978-1-62135-041-5

Marshdale. Just a small farming community where nothing special happens.  A perfect place to start over… or get lost. There is definitely more to this prairie town than meets the eye. Once the meeting place of aboriginal tribes for miles around, some say the land itself was cursed because of the people’s sin. But its history goes farther back than even indigenous oral history can trace and there is still a direct descendant who has been handed the truth, like it or not. Exactly what ties does the land have to the medicine of the ancients? Is it cursed, or is it all superstition?

Wind Over Marshdale is the story of the struggles within a small prairie town when hidden evil and ancient medicine resurface. Caught in the crossfire, new teacher Rachel Bosworth finds herself in love with two men at once. First, there is Thomas Lone Wolf, a Cree man whose blood lines run back to the days of ancient medicine but who has chosen to live as a Christian and faces prejudice from every side as he tries to expose the truth. Then there is Con McKinley, local farmer who has to face some demons of his own. Add to the mix a wayward minister seeking anonymity in the obscurity of the town; eccentric twin sisters – one heavily involved in the occult and the other a fundamentalist zealot; and a host of other ‘characters’ whose lives weave together unexpectedly for the final climax. This suspenseful story is one of human frailty - prejudice, cowardice, jealousy, and greed – magnified by powerful spiritual forces that have remained hidden for centuries, only to be broken in triumph by grace.

SERIES!

COLONY ZERO

In 2810, they’re called Zeroes. Some Zeroes are born, somehow slipping through the genetic screening and purification tests in utero mandated by an overpopulated Earth. Others become Zeroes later, the worst murderers and thieves and abusers, despite the same genetic screening. Whether born or made, they are Earth’s outcasts, the dregs, sent to a perpetually dark rock orbiting a Y-class brown dwarf star by a society without the patience or desire to deal with them. 


The Relocation Ministry cites the humanity of the process, offering the Zeroes a chance at a new life. Yet the overcrowded world secretly knows with silent approval that they’re sent to Colony Zero for one reason: to die. That is until the RM ship Valkyrie 2 arrives on a routine survey mission to retrieve core samples. It is on that dark wind-swept planet that the crew discovers a far different secret.

Gypsy's Game - a review

Gypsy’s Game is the third in the ‘Solomon’s Gate’ series by Delia Latham which centers around a Christian matchmaking firm. We are reacquainted with many of the people we’ve come to like from previous books - characters who are strong in their faith, yet realistic and genuine. In this instalment, Gypsy Lovell is looking for a husband in order to fulfill an inheritance stipulation. She is suspicious of men in general due to an unhappy childhood experience. Good looking doctor,…

Redeeming Brother Murrihy - a review

Redeeming Brother Murrihy – Antony Millen

If you are looking for an easy read, this one isn’t for you. Redeeming Brother Murrihy is deep; best read slowly so that you can savour the rich descriptions, poignant inner dialogue, and extensive cultural background that is so skilfully woven throughout. A Canadian born journalist sets off to find his missing brother in the backwoods of New Zealand and bring him back to honour their dying mother’s wish. His…
