Each month, WaterBrook Multnomah gives readers a sneak peek into an upcoming title. See below for our most recent peek.
Take a trip back to the nineteenth-century Wild West in these three inspirational romance novels, attractively priced and packaged as an eBook omnibus.
Kathleen Y’Barbo’s The Rocky Mountain Heiress Collection includes the rollicking romances of three amazing young women; an adventure-seeking heiress pretending to be a governess to go west, a feisty well-to-do society girl longing to become a journalist and chase the story of a lifetime, and the millionaire’s daughter who is being asked to marry for the good of the family business . Fans of westerns will find themselves transported to frontier Colorado, and into stories with independent heroines, adventure, love, and ambition.
12 dead and 38 injured in what is being called the #theatershooting in Aurora (which is very close to our office in Colorado Springs). Driving into the office and listening to the radio, I wondered, “How should I respond to this?” – Anger? Gun control? Concealed carry? I arrived at work and went to chapter four in Randy Alcorn’s book, If God Is Good (download it here)
This has been our reality at WaterBrook Multnomah in Colorado Springs for the past 24 hours. Please take a minute to pray for us (we have staff who may lose their homes), for our city (more than 100 homes have burned in the past 12 hours) and for the firefighters battling this blaze (more than 800 as of 8pm last night). Our office is not in any immediate danger, but we have a front row seat to the catastrophe out our conference room windows and the view is sobering, to say the least.
The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series by Mona Hodgson details the adventures in life and love of four sisters who have moved from civilized society in Maine to the wild mining town of Cripple Creek, Colorado.
So what better way to celebrate the release of the third book in the series, The Bride Wore Blue, than to give you and a friend the chance to visit the setting of these stories for yourselves?
Every year, the city of Cripple Creek puts on “Donkey Derby Days” complete with donkey races, street vendors, live entertainment, and set in beautiful Colorado this event is as close to the wild west as you’ll ever get. And this year, Mona Hodgson will be attending and would love to meet you! Read the rest of this entry »
At last, the sisters are reunited!
The youngest Sinclair, the family “baby”, is moving from Maine to Cripple Creek, Colorado and joining Kat, Nell, and Ida. But Vivian is a young woman with a will of her own, and made some decisions back in Portland that have begun to haunt her. Will she be able to live up to the expectations of her three perfect and now happily-settled sisters?
Why are we drawn to stories of heroic triumph over seemingly impossible circumstances? In our fascination with adventure movies, superheroes, and tales of incredible human feats, do we reveal an inherent desire for something larger and greater in life? Maybe what we think is a need to escape or be entertained is actually a God-inspired longing…for the extraordinary.
Kat and Nell Sinclair are headed west—away from the manicured lawns of Maine to the boisterous, booming mining town of Cripple Creek, Colorado to start new lives for themselves as mail-order brides.
Aboard the train, romantic dreamer Nell carries a photo of her intended close to her heart and imagines an exciting and love-filled future, while her pragmatic older sister Kat resigns herself to marriage as a duty, not a delight… [read more]
