Coming Home by Terry Fowler
HP 793

Maggie thought she'd finally found her home.

Maggie Gregory was pretty comfortable with the life she'd made for herself, until her elderly friend and landlord, Allene Rogers, passed away. Then Allene's son arrived and accused Maggie of taking advantage of his mother.

Dillon Rogers had been out of the States for years. Returning to handle his mother's estate proved stressful, especially when dealing with Maggie Gregory. He suspected that she was trying to cheat him out of his inheritance. But now Dillion wants Maggie's forgiveness and her love.

After such a rough start to their acquaintance, would God really bring these two independent people together in love? Will they follow His leading, or each follow their own wisdom?

Question of the Day
What are your plans for this weekend?

Day Two with Terry Fowler

Almost nine years ago, my family visited Murphy, NC. We rented a house that slept a number of people and went as a memory trip for my oldest brother's 15th birthday. We spent five days roaming the mountains.

The house was beautiful and when I thought of a locale it struck me that the privacy of the area would indeed make the perfect hiding place. Lake Hiwassee surrounds the area as far as the eye can see.

Last year my sister and I journeyed back to the mountains. We visited Murphy again, Biltmore House, Chimney Rock and Lake Lure (that's where they filmed Dirty Dancing).

North Carolina has so much variety from the beaches to the mountains. God blessed us richly with our Carolina blue skies and so many other beautiful sights and I thank Him for allowing me to call North Carolina home.

This year's birthday is not too far away and I don't know whether I'll plan a staycation and do some of the things that never get done at home or maybe I'll do another wonderful research trip instead.

Question of the Day
What's your favorite vacation spot? Do you see God's hand at work when you visit?

Day One with Terry Fowler

Have you ever considered what it would be like to not be able to speak? Ever gone an hour or a day without a word? Noticed the hoarseness of an elderly person who lives alone and rarely talks to others?

I found myself considering these things as I played with With Not a Spoken Word, my newest Heartsong Presents release.

Strangely enough the idea for the heroine's losing her voice dates back to my childhood.

I remember watching a Bonanza where the person couldn't speak and knew someone wanted to kill them and couldn't tell anyone. The person may have been paralyzed too. I can't recall, but I remember the fear I felt and the ultimate relief when the person regained their ability to speak and was rescued.

We've come a long way from those mildly frightening episodes of our childhood to the horror movies of today, but some of those things that frightened us are just as real to kids today as they were to us then.

One thing I do know is that God doesn't require spoken words to hear what we have to say. A silent prayer is okay with God. He answers those as well.

Question of the Day
Do you remember something that frightened you as a child? Do you feel comforted by prayers when you are afraid?

With Not a Spoken Word by Terry Fowler

With Not a Spoken Word by Terry Fowler
HP 962

"My parents are dead."

Arianna Kent's last spoken words were heard by a 911 operator. Now in hiding, Ari and her brother Simon must process their grief and the fear of the killer on the loose. But since her traumatic discovery of the murder, Ari has not been able to speak.

As a psychiatrist, Mitch Ellis is intrigued with Ari's condition. When the opportunity arises for him to help on her security detail, he takes it; though not to analyze her, but because he personally understands her loss.

Details begin to emerge, but they only cause more confusion. When Ari learns the board of the family business plans to place someone other than her as CEO, she must return to the scene of the crime.

Can Mitch protect Ari when his own secrets are revealed? Can Ari forgive yet another betrayal from a person she loves? Only God can untangle the mess they're in, but will they let Him?

Book Excerpt
Stranger alert.

Arianna fumbled around on the table until she located one of the many whistles they owned underneath her napkin. They had rehearsed his plan numerous times, never expecting to carry it out. She sucked in a deep breath and issued the shrill warning that quickly brought Simon to his feet.

The seven-year-old stood there looking like David coming up against Goliath. Ari considered his options, wondering if he could make it to the stairs before the intruder came too close.

Where was Tom? Had this man overpowered him elsewhere on the property? Ari ran to the door and banged on the glass. Nana hurried over. She pointed, and the woman picked up the phone. Ari started down the stairs, praying God would deliver them safely from this man.

Noting the commotion, the stranger drew a halt. He lifted his hands and yelled, "I'm with Bishop Security!"

Key Verse
Fear of man will prove to be snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe. Proverbs 29:25 NIV

Facing Tessa's Past by Mildred Colvin

Tessa wants to forget the past.

Tessa Stevens has a past she would rather forget. But when she comes face-to-face with a part of her past while on vacation, she is forced to reevaluate her future. Then she falls in love with the man of her dreams once again, knowing that he is as unattainable as before, and knowing she must reveal a secret she has kept for years. Will she learn to trust God or will she remain in bondage to her memories?

Blake Donovan can hardly believe his eyes when Tessa shows up in his restaurant with her three boys. He's never succeeded in erasing Tessa's memory from his mind after he ran from her eleven years ago. And now that he sees the God-changed Tessa, he can't stay away from her. But in order to win her love he knows he has to change too. Will he yield to God's work in his life and regain the love of his life, or will he reject God an run again?

Question of the Day
When was your last reunion with family and friends?

Another Day with Mildred Colvin!

'Route 66' photo (c) 2008, Chuck Coker - license:

In Building Amanda's Future, Amanda is the third friend to tell her story. Tessa came first as she faced her past head-on when her youngest son's father showed up unexpectedly in her life. Then Sarah's present takes a totally new direction when she kept an appointment to meet the baby she gave up for adoption and ran into the boyfriend she'd never forgotten.

Amanda's situation is a bit different from her friends', however. Unlike Tessa and Sarah, Amanda was married before and lost both her husband and her baby daughter in a car accident. As a result, Amanda has no interest in remarrying. She only wants to teach school and live an independent life. Then a tornado brings destruction, and Amanda's compassion brings her to help with clean up afterward. That's when she is reintroduced to Chad, the man she ran from fourteen years earlier when she believed he'd betrayed her love with another woman.

I love stories of reunion where the hero and heroine has a past problem so huge it seems insurmountable. Each book in this series is that way. Of course, their past isn't the only problem the hero and heroine must face. As they become reacquainted, the past and present merge to reveal even more emotional obstacles that must be overcome.

Route 66 plays an important part in Building Amanda's Future, just as it did in Facing Tessa's Past and Redeeming Sarah's Present. The Mother Road extends across the western half of our country from Chicago to Los Angeles. Like many Americans I've always romanticized the idea of Route 66 and feel privileged to have grown up close to a part of it. Although I understand the importance of the major highways and freeways that have replaced so much of the old road, I still long for the simplicity of the two-lane road that wound its way through every small town as it opened up new experiences for travelers.

In some way, Route 66 brought the three couples of this series back together and helped them find the answer to their greatest need - that of making things right with their Savior.

Question of the Day
Have you ever traveled on Route 66?

Welcome Mildred Colvin!

Tornado Weatherphoto © 2010 Mike McCune | more info (via: Wylio)

A lady commented to me the other day that she was amazed with the number of story ideas God gave me. I appreciate her comment, and it is true ideas often come as inspiration, giving me no place to point and say that's where this book began. Other ideas, however, come from something that is very easily recognized. Building Amanda's Future began several years ago when a tornado swept through a small town only 25 miles from where I live.

As I described in Building Amanda's Future, the sky over our home was nearly cloudless while first one tornado and then another swept through this town, leveling homes and businesses, lifting, breaking, and dropping debris in a wide path from the west edge of town to the east edge. We marveled that such a thing could happen.

This spring, just a couple of months ago, another tornado touched down and traveled in a wide path through Joplin, Missouri, a small city located on Route 66. A large hospital in the southwest part of town was severely damage, many home and businesses were destroyed while the funnel traveled at only ten miles an hour through this populated area.

The amazing thing when something like this happens is the reaction of the people. So many people are homeless in Joplin now, but others have opened their doors to provide a place for those without. Groups all over the area as far as two hundred miles away quickly organized collection places to help provide water, blankets, clothing, diapers, and so many things to be taken to Joplin within those first few days as thunderstorms and rain continue to pound the crippled town. Clean-up crews still work, giving without taking. And groups are still sending needed supplies.

One minister, whose church was damaged, told of many kindnesses offered by the local people even before the shock of the storm had passed. many more acts of benevolence continue as the need is still there.

When I wrote Building Amanda's Future, my only experience with a town suffering so much damage was the first one I mentioned. I hope to never again see the results of another tornado. However, in both instances, the loving concern of those who have great empathy for their fellowman is an example to us all. How wonderful to know that those in a community and even in surrounding communities will reach out in love and sympathy to "Bear ye another's burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ." Galatians 6:2

Question of the Day
Has your community ever experienced a natural disaster?

Building Amanda's Future by Mildred Colvin

This week's featured title is...
Building Amanda's Future by Mildred Colvin
HP 961

Amanda's past and future are colliding.

When Amanda Wilson returned to her hometown, she never dreamed her past and future would collide in the aftermath of a devastating tornado. She volunteers to help with cleanup and is assigned to the farm now owned by the man who broke her heart years ago. She's forgiven Chad, but as she learns more about the night she caught him with her college roommate, the hurt feels fresh.

Chad Randall returns to his hometown after his sister and her husband's tragic deaths. With Amanda's help, he spends the summer rebuilding and getting acquainted with his orphaned baby niece. He wants to explain to Amanda about the lies and deception that tore them apart. He wants Amanda's forgiveness, but mostly he wants her love.

Even if Amanda forgives Chad, will he ever understand he needs to ask God's forgiveness too?

Book Excerpt
"Sorry." He jumped back, his hands out. "I didn't mean to startle you."

His grin said otherwise. He reached past her, opened a drawer, and pulled out a hammer.

"You have tools in the kitchen?" Amanda couldn't resist asking.

"Sure it's called a tool drawer." His quick wink sent her heart pounding.

He turned and walked though the dining room to the deck. She held her hand over her heart to slow its beating, glad Linda stood behind her at the sink and couldn't see. No sense in letting everyone witness her in infuriating responses to Chad.

"Amanda." Linda's voice was soft, but firm. "Maybe this isn't a good idea."

"What?" She turned and looked at Linda with wide, innocent eyes. At least she hoped she looked Innocent. "Do you want me to work on the counters first?"

"That isn't what I mean, and you know it. Go ahead and sweep, but tell me something. Do you have feelings for Chad?"

Key Verse
Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13 - 14

Ohio and the Civil War

No, I didn't go back in time to take this picture! It is a reenactments of President Lincoln lying in state in the rotunda of the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus, Ohio. There is a scene in Yankee Heart where Daniel and Katherine go to the statehouse to pay their respects to our country's fallen leader and this is very nearly what they would have seen as they walked past. The statehouse hosts this event every year on or around April 29th, the anniversary of the funeral processions stop in Columbus. During my visit, a separate event was being held at the statehouse and I also got a picture of one of Ohio's favorite sons, former Senator John Glenn!

Learning about the history of my home state was very rewarding and I particularly enjoyed learning about our role in the Civil War. Did you know the federal government called for a certain amount of men from each Northern state based on its population and Ohio exceeded that number by over 15,000 men? Ohio was also home to many of the conflict's prominent generals: Ulysses S. Grant, William "Tecumseh" Sherman, James A. Garfield, Rutherford B. Hayes, and William McKinley. Four of those men became U.S. presidents with two of them also serving as an Ohio governor. Which ones? Rutherford B. Hayes and William McKinley were Ohio governors and presidents while Ulysses S. Grant and James A. Garfield were U.S. presidents.

For more information about Ohio and the Civil War visit and don't forget to check out if you ever want to come for a visit. We have lots to see and do!

Trusting in the Lord

Hello all! My name is Jennifer A. Davids and I'm very excited to be writing for Heartsong Presents. I hope you enjoy reading the stories I help the Father weave. Allow me to tell you a little about myself. I live in Central Ohio with my husband of 18 years and our two children. I am a proud graduate of The Ohio State University and a member of ACFW. Feel free to visit my online at to find out more about me and my writing journey.

The book Ruth is a favorite of mine. During my younger days when youth services were yet to be invented, I would read her story over and over again during church. So it's hardly coincidental that Yankee Heart is based on Ruth's story. I've always admired her loyalty to Naomi and how God rewarded that loyalty. But until then she had to have had doubts. Did I do the right thin in coming here? How are we going to live? What will happen to us? We've all had times like that in our lives. Maybe you're dealing with a similar challenge right now. There are many good verses to turn to, but take a look at Proverbs 3:5-6, the them verse for Yankee Heart. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean no on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight."

There are things that happen in our lives we just can't understand. And I know it's hard. I know. There has been many times in my life when God whispered "trust me" in my ear and I've had to hold on Him. But I can honestly say He's never disappointed me, even when the outcome wasn't exactly what I had in mind. As Daniel and Katherine discover in Yankee Heart, He has good reasons for telling us to do things that don't make sense, at least to us. He sees the things us mere mortals can't possibly see or comprehend.

Question of the Day
So how about you? How is or how has God asked you to trust Him?

Monday, July 11, 2011

Yankee Heart by Jennifer A. Davids

This week's featured title is...
Yankee Heart by Jennifer A. Davids
HP 960

Katherine doesn't fit in the North or South.

Katherine Wallace has come north to escape her family's shunning due to her opposing slavery. But as a Southerner, she finds no welcome in Ohio except from a returning Yankee soldier.

Daniel Kirby arrives home after General Lee's surrender at Appomattox, weary from all the death and destruction of war. He longs to return to teaching at a university but feels a pull to remain with his family's farm and to be near the captivating Southern young lady staying with his aunt.

As Daniel and Katherine begin to fall in love, neighbors attempt to force Katherine to return South, while others plot to steal the Kirby farm. Midst the tumultuous aftermath of war, will Daniel and Katherine allow God to heal their hearts and bind them together as one?

Book Excerpt
"Are you Miss Katherine Wallace?"

Her eyes remained wide as she nodded. "How did you know...?"

He gave her an apologetic smile as he removed his hat. "My aunt mentioned you in her letter. I'm very sorry I frightened you."

"That's quite all right, Major Kirby. I'm...very glad you're home safe. Mary's...been so terribly worried."

He frowned and regretted he hadn't at least sent them a telegram before he left. "I'm afraid I received Aunt Mary's letter right as the siege at Petersburg ended. There was very little time to do anything. Then General Lee surrendered..."

"Of course! I...I understand perfectly, Major Kirby." Although her voice shook, it was gentle and reassuring. "And I'm sure Mary will as well."

Daniel looked at her curiously. She had to be one of the very few daughters of the Confederacy he had met who had not instantly hated him on sight. A Southern woman's zeal for the cause was almost legendary. He had been spit on, snubbed, and bad-mouthed a number of times. And unlike other young ladies he'd met, Northern or Southern, she made no attempt to flirt with him. In fact, judging by the way she stumbled over her words, she seemed painfully shy.

Key Verse
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding." Proverbs 3:5

About the Author
Jennifer A. Davids has lived in Ohio all her life and her family are long-term residents of the state. Her mother's side of the family is from Central and Southern Ohio and her father has traced his side of the family tree back to the early eighteen hundreds. She is a graduate of The Ohio State University and feels blessed to have been called to a life of writing for the Lord. She lives in Central Ohio with her husband and two children and sings on the praise team at church. If she's not writing, she's reading, crafting, or watching a favorite movie or TV show - usually in that order!

Question of the Day
How far back can you trace your family tree?

This week's title from the vault is...
The Columns of Cottonwood by Sandra Robbins

Cottonwood was supposed to be hers.

She grew up there; she lived through the war there; she lost her parents there. Even in its burned-out conditions, it's still home to Savannah Carmichael. But now it belongs to a stranger - a foreigner! - who paid the back taxes on it and bought it right out from under her.

Dante Rinaldi never expected that a culmination of his dream - to own some of Alabama's rich farmland - would mean the destruction of someone else's. He hasn't done anything illegal; in fact, he's worked hard for the privilege of land ownership. So why does Savannah Carmichael's plight affect him on such a deep level?

Both believe in the sovereignty of God, but how can this situation be orchestrated by Him? Can they find a solution...a compromise to benefit both?

Question of the Day
Do you have property or a heirloom that has been passed through your family?

Day Two with Sandra Robbins

Small cotton house surrounded by agricultural fieldsphoto © 2010 Kheel Center more info (via: Wylio)

I have always loved history and couldn't understand it when my friends in school would complain about having to study it. I enjoyed reading about people and events that had happened in the past and thinking about how their lives were similar to mine even though they lived years before I did.

I suppose that's why I wanted to write historical romance when I first began to write. I wanted to take readers into a different time and place from their lives and give them a glimpse of what it was like for our ancestors. To me, the South offers many choices for stories that readers will enjoy.

In writing Blues Along the River, I did a lot of research about the changes that were taking place in the South in the years after the Civil War. With the end of slave labor, planters had to find another work force so the agriculture system could survive. This need brought about the advent of the tenant farm system which survived well into the twentieth century. In 1930, 1,831,470 tenant farmers lived in a sharecropping system across the South. The end of World War II saw a decline and finally an end to this way of farming.

This system, though it sounds good, often resulted in a different kind of servitude. Those who worked the farms were often entrapped and barely scraped by on what they earned at harvest time after repaying the landowner for the "share" they had been given during the year.

My grandfathers were both a part of this system, but they were fortunate. With a strong faith in God and a strong work ethic, they both emerged from a system that sucked the life out of others. One of my grandfathers was able to buy his own farm while the other attained elected office and served his country for years.

In Blues Along the River, the tenant farmer system is the backdrop of Marcus's and Victoria's story. I hope you enjoy reading about a time and place where a love of God, family, and land offered hope for a renewed future.

Question of the Day
Were any of your ancestors involved in a major historical event?

Day One with Sandra Robbins

Civil War Veteransphoto © 2008 Marion Doss more info (via: Wylio)

Happy day after the Fourth of July! I hope everyone had a happy and safe day. It's such a blessing to be able to celebrate the freedom that we as citizens have in this country, but we realize that freedom has come at a great price for many people.

Over the weekend I saw a documentary that told the story of the latest people who had become citizens of the United States. The reporter traveled from state to state as those who had come to our country for the freedom offered here received their certificate of citizenship. I was deeply touched by the stories these people had to tell of why they came to America and what they escaped in the countries they had left. It made me very thankful to have been born in this great country.

It also made me reflect on all this country has gone through since independence was first proclaimed. There have been wars fought here and in foreign lands that have formed us into the people we are today. As a life-long Southerner, I have grown up with the battlegrounds of the Civil War close to where I live. Visits to places like Shiloh continues to fascinate those of us who live in the 21st Century.

Perhaps this fascination with a war that divided a nation was the reason I selected the time period I did for my latest book in the Alabama Brides series. Blues Along the River is set in the Black Belt of Alabama sixteen years after the end of that war. Even though old attitudes and traditions are being replaced by new ones, there are those who find it difficult to give up an old way of life.

When a naive girl arrives in Wilow Bend, Alabama, and meets the handsome owner of Pembrook Plantation, all she sees is the chance to live a privileged life with a man who she thinks will fulfill all her dreams. Unfortunately, she doesn't look below the surface to see what hidden secrets may control her life in the plantation's big house.

Blues Along the River relates the story of a time and a people who struggle to rebuild their lives in the shattered society they had once known. I hope you will enjoy Marcus and Victoria's story.

Blues Along the River by Sandra Robbins

Blues Along the River by Sandra Robbins
HP 959

Their marriage is not what they dreamed.

When Victoria Turner and Marcus Raines marry, they're both surprised to quickly discover they're not living happily ever after. Marcus continues to remember his late father's warnings about women betraying men, and he wonders if that is exactly what Victoria is doing when she refuses to abide by his wishes. Victoria is appalled that Marcus doesn't recognize how the South is changing after the war and that he can no longer treat his tenant farmers the way his father treated their slaves. Instead of being full of joy, their lives in their beautiful plantation home along the Alabama River reflect the blues sung by the workers.

Will Victoria and Marcus find the answers they need by turning to the Author of their love? Or will the pain of their pasts and their unwillingness to forgive leave their hearts empty and their home filled with bitterness?

Book Excerpt

He regarded her for a moment. "Your mother said you've always been impulsive. For now, I see I can't change your mind. As you get used to life here and see how the tenants need guidance, you'll change your opinions."

She shook her head. "I wouldn't count on it." Her gaze softened , and she reached up and stroked his cheek. "I don't want to argue with you, Marcus. I love you with all my heart, and I want us to be happy. Please try to understand how I feel."

His heart pricked at the sadness he detected on her face. How could he deny her anything? "I want us to be happy, too. I love you so much, Victoria, but you have to understand you've entered a different world."

Key Bible Verse

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: For what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:14
