Run, River Currents

Ginger Marcinkowski

Price: 99 cents

This is a really dark book, but the author does a great job of showing the unpolished truth of how a child who has grown up with sexual abuse really views life. Particularly helpful, I think, for spouses or close friends of abuse victims, in that it allows us to understand where the victims’ perspectives of people and life are coming from. People don’t easily “move on” from the darkness they live in, and this book shows that – while also ultimately showing that Another Way is possible. Not easy, but possible. Redemption is always possible and is something God always longs to do for each of us.

NY Reviewer

As the last of the mourners departed the ornate Catholic Church, Emily entered a side door unnoticed, walked to the coffin, and punched her dead father in the face. “You’ll never be dead enough,” she whispered. “Never.”

Determined to recover from the hands of a father who sexually abused her and an emotionally distant mother, twenty-seven-year-old Emily Evans seeks the peace she’d lost in her youth. Yet, shattered by the betrayal of those she was taught to respect and love, she fears that she may never overcome the devastating effects of generations of abuse. Will she ever let herself truly open up to the power of unconditional love?

Set in the rich backwoods of New Brunswick, Canada, Run, River Currents is inspired by a true story of abuse, pain, and the struggle to find healing and forgiveness.

The Button Legacy

Ginger Marcinkowski

Price: 99 cents

This novella was a perfect wrap-up to Run, River Currents. It left me with a better understanding of the positive effect John had on his granddaughter Emily, an influence I realized I can each have in someone else’s life, even if I never live to see it. This is a book you can share with your children! Each button story will make you think, laugh and cry. I’m hoping the author will share more of these positive stories soon!

Mike Martin

“My Dearest Emily…
When you were a little girl, a change occurred in you. You lost a piece of yourself somewhere….But when you were here in Plaster Rock, you bloomed. The stories we told with these buttons made you smile. With your smile came hope.
Repeat the stories you’ve been told to your own children, never forgetting that God was there in every situation, in every story held inside this box…”

Growing up, Emily Evans of Run, River Currents had always shared a special understanding with her grandfather, John Polk, even when she couldn’t fully see beyond the darkness of her father’s abuse. Yet John looked to the future in faith to what his God could do.

Years after her grandfather’s death, the unexpected delivery of the decorated tin, still brimming with odd-colored buttons, unlocks the joyous memories and lets Emily realize she has finally discovered the secret her grandfather promised lay within the stories of the worn button box.

Told through the eyes of a godly grandfather, The Button Legacy laces together a godly heritage and the power of one man’s prayers, offering a lesson of how God’s grace can be seen even in the simplest thing–a button.

Cherry Cobbler – Book 2 of the Blackberry County Chronicles

JoHannah Reardon

Price: FREE

Cherry Cobbler was so much fun to read and a great lesson on patience. It was refreshing to read a book with Christian standards that parallel my own values. The characters came alive and I felt like I could relate to their real life issues. It was suspenseful and kept me up reading way too late at night. I was disappointed when the book ended – hoping there will be a sequel! I recommend the book for a great read on your kindle or e-reader!

Quirky, funny, lighthearted Cherry is starting to panic. She’s pushing 30 and has a bit of a weight problem. But most of all, she is looking for love in all the wrong places. For her, the wrong place is thinking she could handle missionary life with a young Indiana Jones look alike. Her complete failure to understand herself unfolds as she realizes the treasure she has been missing is right under her nose.

Such a wonderful writer! All three of the Cascade Bride books are excellent! Each stands alone, yet you’ll want to read all three of them. Faith, Hope and Charity have their own adventures, yet are connected, but estranged sisters. Thanks Bonnie, for another great book!

The Three Sisters Mountains are part of the Cascade Mountain Range near the town of Sisters, Oregon. The peaks were named Faith, Hope, and Charity by early settlers.

Christian romance.

So when coffee shop patron Daniel Tabor begins coming in to her shop, she makes it her personal goal to get the handsome but taciturn man to smile. But Daniel resists becoming just another ‘project’ and instead challenges Charity to take a risk not only with him–but with her sisters.

WITNESS (Seeds of Christianity)

E.G. Lewis

Price: FREE

Witness, book one of the Seeds of Christianity series, starts with a masterful scene. Delightful details set stage and character, time and temperament; young Rivkah tends her flock and tries to obey the dictates of Yahweh and her Abba while village boys throw insults and lion roars.
There’s a beautiful innocence to Rivkah and her thoughts, and the author has a gentle way with words, explaining with just enough detail to intrigue, leading with just enough hints to entice. The story unfolds from wondrous choirs of angels to the storm-clouds of despair, and follows the fractured love between shepherd girl and talented young man, just as the soldiers of Rome are putting down yet another insurrection. Divided by fate, united by love, the two young people grow to separate adulthood, each with their dreams and desires unfulfilled, while the world of Rome and conquest moves inexorably on.
Favorite movies and novels of my youth include The Robe, Demetrius and the Gladiators, Ben Hur, The Great Fisherman, Dear and Glorious Physician… If only I had a paperback copy of Witness I’d add to my collection, but the version I read was on kindle. Author E.G. Lewis has paid the same careful attention to detail and research as these classic writers did, taking a carefully studied historical background and sketching a consistent view of the unknown with masterly pen. The worlds of shepherd and slave, Judea and Antioch, Roman and Jew all come to life. Their concerns become real, the longing palpable, the hope, the joy, the sorrow, and the seeds of faith referred to in the title.
I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it highly to anyone wondering how those early days might have felt when the Seeds of Christianity were first sown.

S. Deeth

Reviewers say: “This is a love story, and a good one”…“There’s a beautiful innocence to Rivkah and her thoughts, and the author has a gentle way with words”… “The writing is incredible”… “You will rejoice and cry at various times…this is a novel that transports you to a different time and place”… “E.G. Lewis did a marvelous job… worthy of so much more than a 5 star rating.”… “Fast paced and gripping…the author did a wonderful job on weaving history into fiction.”

WITNESS — An old tale told in a new way!
The events Rivkah witnessed changed history. As a young shepherd girl, she accompanied her father to a Bethlehem stable where she held the baby Jesus. She watched Mary and Joseph flee to Egypt, met the strange visitors from the East who’d followed a star to Bethlehem, and saw Herod’s soldiers kill the children of her village.
You can experience life in Roman Judea as the Jewish people struggle under the burden of Caesar’s armies and Herod’s cruelty. Watch false Messiahs rise and fall and see the fatal retribution that followed. Feel the pain of the innocent bystanders left to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives.
Meet Shemu’el, the young man Rivkah believed God destined for her. But Rome tore them apart. Divided by fate, united by love, these two young people grow to separate adulthood, each with their dreams and desires unfulfilled, while the world of Rome and conquest moves inexorably on.
Then, many years later, Rivkah finds herself in Jerusalem during the Passover. Trapped in a crowd, she is forced to watch three men being led to their execution. Her stomach drops when she realizes one of the men is Yeshua, the babe she held so many years before.
Witness it all through the eyes of one who lived it.
