Amish and Historicals from Thomas Nelson 2009/2010


A Lady Like Sarah by Margaret Brownley

She's an outlaw; he's a preacher. Both are in need of a miracle.

Sarah Prescott has never known a respectable life. Just a hardscrabble childhood and brothers who taught her to shoot straight.

Justin Wells left Boston in disgrace, heading out alone on the dusty trail to Texas. But when the once-respected clergyman encounters a fiesty redhead in handcuffs with a dying US Marshal at her side, their journey takes a dramatic turn.

His high society expectations and Sarah's outlaw habits clash from the start. With a price on her head, and a sweet orphan in tow, Justin and Sarah make the difficult journey toward Rocky Creek. There justice will be meted out. Perhaps - they hope - with a healthy portion of grace.

Filled with mishaps, laughs, and adventure, Margaret Brownley's inspiring romance will keep readers cheering for Sarah as she struggles to become a true lady.

The Lightkeeper's Daughter by Colleen Coble

In her quest to discover the truth about her family, Addie finds danger-and quite possibly the love of her life.

It's 1907 and Addie Sullivan has found work at a lavish estate in Mercy Falls, California. She hopes to discover the truth of her heritage. But when she arrives at Eaton Hall, nothing is as it seems. Not the idyllic family she dreamt of, not the child she was hired to help, not even the aloof man she's immediately attracted to. The danger she'd hoped to escape follows her, however, and she soon finds she must turn for help to Daniel North, a man who views her with suspicion.

If Addie realizes her dream, she'll deprive the man she loves of HIS dream--his right to the wealth and power of the Eaton name. She must come to realize that God is sufficient even in the hard times, and no familial approval is worth her integrity.
