Join us—June Book Release Prayers

Morning, #Crazy4Fiction readers! As we do on the last Sunday of every month, let’s give thanks and praise for the books that are releasing this June.

 The true power of fiction is evident in inspirational novels, and we are continually pleased—and blessed—by the stories of people who are impacted by books like these.

Tessa Afshar, Bread of Angels

Dear Father, You are able to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. May You place this book in the hands of the ones You know would be blessed by it. Use this story to bring encouragement to the dismayed heart, hope to the despairing one, trust to the shaken soul. May you banish fear, anxiety, and self-condemnation in the hearts of those who read this book. Bless this simple novel to bring joy, laughter, and treasured friends to those who need it. I thank You, Jesus, for the privilege of writing for You.

Available in bookstores and online.

Jolina Petersheim, The Divide

I pray that readers won’t be able to peel an orange, tuck a bulb into the soil, even put a load of whites into the washer, without rejoicing in the miracle of our convenient, modern-day lives. I also pray that Leora’s story–and the story of her community–will help readers understand that even the hardest crosses are easier to bear while surrounded by believers and friends who can help share the weight. Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, I pray the The Divide will encourage readers to contemplate the balance between having faith and taking action and will cause them to reflect on their faith journey and how they might deepen it by truly relying on the One who keeps our beautiful blue/green world spinning in orbit and that sacred breath filling our lungs.

Available in bookstores and online.

Prayer from the #Crazy4Fiction team

Lord, we thank you for these talented authors. The stories they weave are both beautiful and steeped with truth; we pray those truths make their way into readers’ hearts. Amen.

What’s Happening Wednesday? Cover Reveal: The Sea Keeper’s Daughters by Lisa Wingate

Today on the blog, in celebration of What’s Happening Wednesday?, we’re very excited to reveal the cover of The Sea Keeper’s Daughters. The latest time-slip novel from Lisa Wingate, The Sea Keeper’s Daughters is about those precious moments in time that are nearly forgotten.

About the book:

From modern-day Roanoke Island to the sweeping backdrop of North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains and Roosevelt’s folklore writers of the WPA Federal Writers’ Project, past and present intertwine to create an unexpected destiny . . .

Restaurant owner Whitney Monroe is desperate to save her business from a hostile takeover. The inheritance of a decaying Gilded Age hotel on North Carolina’s Outer Banks may provide just the ray of hope she needs.
But things at The Excelsior are more complicated than they seem. Whitney’s estranged stepfather is entrenched on the third floor, and the downstairs tenants are determined to save the historic building. Searching through years of stored family heirlooms may be Whitney’s only hope of quick cash, but will the discovery of an old necklace and a Depression-era love story change everything?

 

Fun news:

If you would like to meet Lisa, don’t miss out on her book tour this September.

While some tour events are already on the schedule, she’ll also have time for speaking at luncheons, teas, book chats, and more. Because she will be traveling in the areas listed below, your church, charity, or organization can hold an event without the cost of travel fees. Here’s the preliminary tour agenda:

North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia, Northern Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Virginia

To find out more, go to her website.

 

Insider thoughts from Lisa Wingate:

Like many of my novels, The Sea Keeper’s Daughters began with a bit of nearly forgotten history. Until I stumbled across an Eleanor Roosevelt quote, I wasn’t aware of the Depression-era Federal Writers’ Project. In researching the program, I quickly became fascinated with the lives of the WPA’s federal writers themselves. Thousands of people participated in the project, from housewives and secretaries (like Alice in the story) to famous writers of the day. My fascination led to The Sea Keeper’s Daughters.
