The word on the street about Captive Brides Collection with Christian Authors Network members Angela Breidenbach and Darlene Franklin is great reviews for this Barbour Publishing book with 9 historical romance stories releasing tomorrow, Oct. 1st!

Captive Brides Historical Romance Collection

Captive Brides Romance Collection featuring Angela Breidenbach and Darlene Franklin

Review: The Captive Brides Collection is a wonderful selection of nine tales dealing with captivity. Captivity may be physical, mental or spiritual. It is anything that binds us against our will. The reader travels from America to Australia, from 1655 to the late nineteenth century. The stories have similar themes of injustice, prejudice, trust, redemption, new beginnings and second chances, and fighting for freedom.

Down the ages women (and men and children) have been exploited by the greedy and the grasping. However there are good men who will fight this injustice. Good old fashioned knights in shining armour.

A perfectly delightful collection. I have my favourite. Pick up a copy today and see which one you like best. — UK reader, Julia Wilson (Read the Full review)

Marti Pieper_HeadshotGreetings from heading-toward-summer Mount Dora, Florida. My husband and I are enjoying this brief season when we can still leave our windows open at night for some cool air. I believe the subject of today’s interview, author/speaker/missionary Grace Fox, is experiencing slightly different temperatures in her home in British Columbia, Canada. But I’m sure the warmth of her personality more than makes up for any chill in the temperature. Grace and I have enjoyed our connection as Christian authors and speakers, and we have grown to appreciate and pray for each other although we have yet to meet in person. I know you’ll enjoy hearing her thoughts and wise advice in this CAN encore interview.teal 2

Grace Fox Tuck-Me-In Talks with Your Little Ones

Tuck-Me-In Talks with Your Little
Ones: Creating Happy Bedtime Memories
– February 1, 2014 (Harvest House
Publishers)

 

Description:

Trade in a few of your bedtime stories for memory-making moments
with this collection of fun conversation starters for kids ages three to eight.
It's filled with open-ended questions that will stimulate your children's
imagination and help them express their thoughts.

These conversation starters for kids cover a wide range of
topics and avoid one-word answers and right-or-wrong responses. The goal is
simply to share some happy times together as you consider some questions for
kids, such as…

  • If you could write a book, what would it be about? Tell me the
    story!
  • If you could be king of the world, what rules would you have
    everyone obey?
  • Pretend you're in the circus. What's your job?

Whether you're a parent, a grandparent, or a childcare provider,
you'll love this valuable tool for helping kids end their day on a happy,
loving note.
