THE RESTORER'S SON by Sharon Hinck
Cast out by those he trusts and preferring to cross swords with the One rather than yield to His will, Kieran flees to enemy Hazor, only to find that the One knows no borders. Pursued by his calling, Kieran finds a boy without a home, a king with burning questions, and a nation torn by darkness. 

THE CHASE by DiAnn Mills
To FBI Special Agent Tigo Harris, it's a cold case, but to writer Kariss Walker it's a story that she has to write despite the danger. 
When Holly Fisher's mother reveals a long-kept secret, that Holly's mother abandoned her Amish community where relatives still live, will Holly's yearning for family be strong enough to overtake her conflicted feelings of betrayal? Set in the heart of contemporary Amish country, Leaving Lancaster explores the power of forgiveness, reconciliation, and love where least expected.

THE IRISH HEALER by Nancy Herriman
Accused of murdering a child under her care, Irish healer Rachel Dunne flees the ensuing scandal while vowing to never sit at another sickbed. When a cholera epidemic sweeps through London, she feels compelled to nurse the dying daughter of the enigmatic physician she has come to love.

What a delightful surprise to see The Restorer's Son-Expanded Edition included with all these amazing other authors. Thanks, April! I'd definitely want ALL of them on my to-be-read pile. :-)

Hard to pick - they all look so great!

Dona Watson said... Wednesday, 16 May, 2012

These are all good choices, but I LOVE The Restorer's Son. Definitely my favorite in the Sword of Lyric trilogy.

(I hope this isn't a duplicate comment. The first time I tried to leave one, Blogger bailed on me so I'm trying again.)

Restorer's Son ..... Please release the third book on Kindle soon .....

DiAnn Mills said... Thursday, 17 May, 2012

I think I'll vote for all of them, that way I'm staying humble. Actually, how would anyone choose?

April Gardner said... Thursday, 17 May, 2012

DiAnn, Sharon, Nancy--Thank you, ladies for gracing our humble halls! We're honored to have your latest books featured here.
DiAnn--LOL, I know what you mean. How to choose? Eeny, meeny, miney, moe...
Dona, glad you enjoyed The Restorer's Son! Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. I've been considering that one for my ten year old. He's an avid reader (just finished The Hobbit). Would you say it's kid-level appropriate? (Sharon, you can obviously answer this one too, lol)
Kara, Landon, and P. Creeden--thanks for stopping by to vote!

I'm thrilled to be included with these outstanding authors, April! Thank you!

Susan Page Davis said... Thursday, 17 May, 2012

Great to be here, April. Thanks! I agree, this is an outstanding lineup.

April, re: your question about kid-appropriateness.

Yes, I hear from lots of families and young readers who have enjoyed the Restorer books. Although my target audience was moms like me who find the walk of following Christ to be a more difficult adventure than expected, it's been fun to see how many younger readers also identify with the themes of courage and sacrifice. :-)

This is fun - lots of new books to peruse.

All the books look fantastic, but I'm loyal to The Restorer's Son. It's been one of my top-three fiction books of all time since the moment I closed the cover for the first time. I will be picking up the extended edition as soon as circumstances allow. Thanks for such an awesome trilogy, Sharon, and I can barely wait to read the fourth book!

Wow...! We are in excellent company here at Clash of the Titles, aren't we? :) Ladies, all of these books sound absolutely riveting. How to choose? How to choose?
