It’s hard to believe that summer is almost over! While it may be sad to see the warmer weather on its way out, fall means a new season of great new titles from Baker Publishing Group.

Colliding with Destiny by Sarah Jakes (Bethany House, September release) This book is all about finding hope in the legacy of Ruth. I love to study characters of the Bible. Ruth’s circumstances seemed overwhelming, but she opened herself up to God using them to transform her and those around her. Ruth has a story that’s similar to many women of today and I want to learn more.       Tried and True by Mary Connealy (Bethany House, September release) This is the first book of “Wild at Heart,” a new series by Mary Connealy. Having fought in the Civil War posing as men, the Wilde sisters are homesteading using the special exemptions they earned serving in the War. Will their secret be revealed? Will they lose their homestead? This plot seems like a fun one and I’m looking forward to getting to know these characters.       A Light in the Wilderness by Jane Kirkpatrick (Revell, September release) Three spirited women, a former slave, Kalapuya Indian & a married settler will discover what it means to be truly free in a land that makes promises it cannot fulfill. This is a multilayered story that will take you on the dusty and dangerous Oregon Trail into the boundless American West. This book is based on real events and [...]
