SUMMARIES

Emily’s Hope

A gripping story of one young woman’s physical, emotional, spiritual journey from high school to adulthood. Interspersed throughout the story are flashbacks to Emily’s great-grandmother’s troubled life, with a climax culminating in the surprising revelation that Emily and her great-grandmother are connected more deeply than by ancestral ties alone. Based on a true story.

In Name Only

Caroline Martin’s life has finally taken a turn for the better. After years of hard work, she has met a virtuous and wealthy man whose love seems to promise the kind of life realized only within the comforting novels she keeps on her night table. Tragedy, however, will teach Caroline of the complexity with which God Himself authors the lives of those who turn towards Him. Gold Medal Winner in Religious Fiction, 2010 IPPY Awards.

A Subtle Grace

In this sequel to “In Name Only” (2009, FQP), “A Subtle Grace” continues the story of the wealthy and unconventional O’Donovan Family as they approach the dawn of a new century.

At 19, Kathleen (oldest daughter) is unmarried with no prospects. Fearing the lonely fate of an old maid, her impatience leads to an infatuation with the first man who shows interest. The suave, handsome son of the local police chief seems a perfect match. But will her impulsive manner prevent her from recognizing her true beloved? A disturbing turn of events brings a dark shadow that threatens the life-long happiness she desires.

Dr. Luke Peterson (the family’s new physician) also makes quite an impression on Kathleen. His affection for her leads him to startling revelations: about Kathleen, about his practice and, most importantly, about himself.

Will (oldest son) believes God may be calling him to a religious vocation. Eventually, he discovers the hidden circumstances of his humble beginnings compelling him to embark on a pilgrimage to Rome.

(Note: Although A Subtle Grace is a sequel, it can be read as a stand alone book, independently of the first book in the series.)

Stealing Jenny

After three heartbreaking miscarriages, Tom and Jenny Callahan are happily anticipating the birth of their sixth child. A neighbor, however, is secretly hatching a sinister plot which will find Jenny and her unborn baby fighting for their lives.

Come My Beloved: Inspiring Stories of Catholic Courtship 

A celebration of faith and enduring love. This compilation contains 12 courtship/dating stories which will inspire, captivate and entertain readers. Some of the stories include: a widow with eight children meets a widower with six children; a man asks his live-in girlfriend “what if we stopped having sex,” and is greeted with tears of joy; an atheist falls in love with her Catholic Prince Charming; a woman prays to God for a husband and years later finds herself falling in love with a seminarian; a sailor prays a novena to marry the right girl. What these and all the stories illustrate is that God is the ideal matchmaker.

    I’m guessing you mean “entire” book, in which case, my ADD and my five kids have a) prevented that from happening for a long time and b) blocked my memory of when the last time that happened was 😉 Oh, wait, I remember. It was Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. I love that book. I read it three times in a row 😉ReplyCancel

    I was just lamenting about the lack of new, good, literary books. Too much dystopian, fantasy, monster love and zombie writing. Would love to win these books!ReplyCancel

    The last book I FINISHED (being the key word!) was probably Patrick Taylor’s An Irish Country Doctor. I’m currently reading Dante’s The Divine Comedy! 😀ReplyCancel

    I LOVE Ellen Gable books! I have a wonderful friend with whom I would love to share these wonderful books. Clean, quality fiction is SO hard to find these days.

    The last book I read was Paradise Valley by Dale Cramer – it is actually Amish fiction, but I really loved it. Romance, action, all without scenes I just ‘fast forward’ through 😉ReplyCancel
