FaithfulReader.com featured Hillary Manton Lodge’s A Table by the Window in the April eNewsletter. Reviewer Evelyn Bence wrote, “When I read Christian fiction, I often feel as if writers are trying too hard — to relay their faith, teach a lesson, show (never tell) an emotion, overblow a plotline, take a literary tack…or maybe it’s that they’re not trying hard enough. So what a pleasant surprise to find this novel that didn’t once make me sigh with irritation.” Go here to read the full review.

Susan Meissner, author of the novel A Sound Among the Trees (released October 4, 2011), wrote a guest blog post for the eHarmony relationship blog, entitled “Not All Baggage Is Bad.”
In the book, Marielle Bishop, who has watched all her friends marry and begin families, has at last found love online. She leaves the Arizona desert to marry a Virginia widower, joining him and his two children —and his first wife’s grandmother— in an ancestral family home where it seems like ghosts are everywhere, real and imagined. As Marielle struggles to fit into her new role as wife and stepmother, unsettled by the strange sense of sorrow she feels inside Holly Oak’s walls, she must uncover the truth about Susannah, and reconcile her belief that it is people—not houses—that hang on to the past. History can’t be undone, but truth uncovered can set the women of Holly Oak free. Start reading chapter 1 now.
In her blog, Susan shares insights on how to give the past a proper place in a new relationship. Read it here.
