#Crazy4Fiction May New Releases + #BookGiveaway

Afternoon, readers!

As we do each month, we are pleased to present you the Crazy4Fiction titles hitting shelves this month (plus an opportunity to WIN these must-reads!).

Catching the Wind by Melanie Dobson

What happened to Brigitte Berthold?

That question has haunted Daniel Knight since he was thirteen, when he and ten-year-old Brigitte escaped the Gestapo agents who arrested both their parents. They survived a harrowing journey from Germany to England, only to be separated upon their arrival. Daniel vowed to find Brigitte after the war, a promise he has fought to fulfill for more than seventy years.

Now a wealthy old man, Daniel’s final hope in finding Brigitte rests with Quenby Vaughn, an American journalist working in London. He believes Quenby’s tenacity to find missing people and her personal investment in a related WWII espionage story will help her succeed where previous investigators have failed. Though Quenby is wrestling her own demons—and wary at the idea of teaming up with Daniel’s lawyer, Lucas Hough—the lure of Brigitte’s story is too much to resist. Together, Quenby and Lucas delve deep into the past, following a trail of deception, sacrifice, and healing that could change all of their futures.

Available in stores and online.

The Maggie Bright by Tracy Groot
A Novel of Dunkirk

2016 Christian Book Award finalist (Fiction category)

England, 1940. Clare Childs knew life would change when she unexpectedly inherited the Maggie Bright—a noble fifty-two-foot yacht. In fact, she’s counting on it. But the boat harbors secrets. When a stranger arrives, searching for documents hidden onboard, Clare is pulled into a Scotland Yard investigation that could shed light on Hitler’s darkest schemes and prompt America to action.

Across the Channel, Hitler’s Blitzkrieg has the entire British army in retreat with little hope for rescue at the shallow beaches of Dunkirk. With time running out, Churchill recruits civilian watercraft to help. Hitler is attacking from land, air, and sea, and any boat that goes might not return. Yet Clare knows Maggie Bright must answer the call—piloted by an American who has refused to join the war effort until now and a detective with a very personal motive for exposing the truth.

The fate of the war hinges on this rescue. While two men join the desperate fight, a nation prays for a miracle.

Available in stores and online.

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 May, and lift up their authors as well. 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.

This story is yours, Lord. I pray you would use it to bless readers as the research and writing has blessed me and that each person reading this novel would be encouraged by the relentless journey of a man who refuses to break his promise.

Thank you for your many gifts including the gift of story. And thank you for giving all of us the opportunity to write new stories with our lives, the foundation of each journey anchored in your unfailing love. With a grateful heart, I present Catching the Wind as an offering and pray it will be used to draw readers closer to you.

Tracy Groot, The Maggie Bright

Thank you for bringing this talented author such beautiful stories. The Maggie Bright unfolds during the Battle of Dunkirk, when a world leader cried out to his country for a national day of prayer—and, Lord, we are astounded by your response. This incredible rescue undisputedly demonstrates the true power of prayer. Thank you for this real-life miracle and for giving Tracy the talent to breathe new life into this historical event in an inventive way only she could.

Available in bookstores and online.

The One True Love of Alice-Ann Dream Cottage Pinterest Contest—build to win!

“Nancy slipped a cupped hand under Alice-Ann’s elbow and squeezed. ‘Then answer me this, Miss Branch. How could a young woman with so much compassion for a house not have as much for a man who’s been injured in the war?’”

Build on something beautiful:
In Eva Marie Everson’s newest novel, The One True Love of Alice-Ann, the heart of a Southern girl in rural Georgia breaks for love lost, just as another chance starts to form during the throes of WWII. But as she begins to settle in to the new life she’s building, will a sudden and surprising turn of events change everything, crumbling the new foundation she’s laid out for herself?

Alice-Ann’s world revolves around the theme of rebuilding, both literal and metaphorical. Though this storyline of transformation threads itself throughout a work of fiction, its realities touch each of us in our own unique ways. Ultimately, we can find something beautiful and worthwhile in the brokenness and chaos that surrounds us when we learn to rely on God’s plan.

To celebrate the release of The One True Love of Alice-Ann, join us in a Pinterest contest focused on transformation! Just as Alice-Ann finds the beauty in her fixer-upper, Tyndale wants you to build a Pinterest board and fill it up with what your dream cottage would look like.

Join us—April Book Release Prayers

Afternoon, #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 April, and lift up their authors as well. The true power of fiction is evident in each of these inspirational novels, and we are continually pleased—and blessed—by the stories of those who are impacted by books like these.

DiAnn Mills, Deep Extraction

I pray my novel touches the hearts of those who are searching for truth in a world where fear has become a disease. The quest for truth takes courage, but you, oh God, are our strength. You light the way for people to push aside bitterness, rejection, and fear of the unknown to embrace your unconditional love. May readers find purpose and meaning with a fresh and intimate spiritual awakening. I pray your people become the voice of life with unconditional love that points to your saving grace.

Deep Extraction

Available in bookstores and online.

Eva Marie Everson, The One True Love of Alice-Ann

Heavenly Father, Giver of talents and dreams:

First, I thank you that you chose me. You chose to love me. You chose me as your child. You chose to send your Son to die as a sacrifice for my sins. But you also chose me to do your work. To write for your glory and for the purposes of your Kingdom. You placed inside of me words and descriptions and stories and characters within those stories. And I am honored and humbled.

Father, I pray that readers will find The One True Love of Alice-Ann to be both entertaining and a mirror by which they can reflect on their own lives, their own choices, and—seeing you in them—can know that “no man thwarts the plans of God” and that when our hearts are burdened with decisions to make—decisions that will greatly shape the course of our lives—you are ready to listen, to guide, and to hold our hands as we put a voice to your will. That they will know that no detail escapes your notice and that our lives matter to you. Matter greatly.

Father, thank you again for the idea and the ability and strength to carry it out. To you be all the praise and the glory. Use my work, Lord. Use me.

Amen.

The One True Love of Alice Ann

Available in bookstores and online.

Prayer from the #Crazy4Fiction team

We bring these novels to you, Lord, and ask that you bless them. May these authors’ words be seen and felt by those who need to hear them. Please allow them to be a light and an outlet for those desperately seeking hope in our culture of darkness. May their messages have everlasting effects for you and your Kingdom. Amen.
