Here they are:
By T. L. Higley
Petra
Cassia, a destitute young woman in need of hope, seeks refuge for her little boy in Petra, home of his dead father’s estranged family and capital of the flourishing Arabian empire. Surely this rock-carved city, hidden away between towering sandstone cliffs, can protect them from their past and provide for their future.

But the boy’s father was not the man she believed, and when a murderous queen plots to take Cassia’s son, her hopes of security are ripped away.
As the plot against the young Alexander unfolds, Cassia finds unexpected allies in the mysterious followers of The Way, who sacrifice everything to help Cassia rescue her son from the queen and her pagan gods. But it will take more than these new friends to save her son. It will take a power beyond any Cassia has known—and a faith that can save a city.

City of the Dead
In the blistering desert sands, tens of thousands toil to raise the Great Pyramid of Giza. Hemiunu, the pyramid’s meticulous architect, is consumed by the massive project and his allegiance to his cousin Khufu, Pharaoh of Egypt.

But when a sadistic killer known as Anubis begins preying upon Hemi’s closest friends, a dark secret tangled in love and mystery threatens to stir up a past Hemi cannot forget and uncover a secret he can no longer deny – a secret that may well destroy an entire kingdom


Guardian of the Flame
Alexandria, 48 BC. Sophia has spent nearly twenty years as the keeper of the Lighthouse of Alexandria, alone in her task and in her heart. But when the wealthy capital of Egypt is invaded by Julius Caesar and his Roman legion, Sophia’s peace is shattered and her lighthouse invaded.

The Roman general would steal both her country and its queen, the Greek Cleopatra, and when his military strategy endangers the city’s best scholars and their secret invention, Sophia must discover a way to protect the men.
But as the city prepares for inevitable war, Sophia finds that the Roman centurion tasked with invading her lighthouse is also invading her heart.


From Cladach Publishing:
Journeys to Mother Love
Women readers are sure to find themselves in one or more of these true stories filled with grit and grace. The courageous authors of JOURNEYS TO MOTHER LOVE aren't merely venting about their mother wounds. Neither are they giving pat answers. The hurts were real and the healing was real.

From manipulation to abandonment, from neglect to favoritism, from mental illness to emotional distance, from abortion to Alzheimer's, these nine women from several generations, tell their personal stories with heart-wrenching honesty. Each had hurts and conflicts in their mother/daughter relationship that left them wounded and affected their relationships with others. Each tells how, with God's help, they experienced healing and new freedom to give and receive.

 
Walking in Trust
 Gayle shares stories of her life with Sage, then draws out principles from the stories and from scriptures that apply to our daily lives. Chapter titles include: Patience, Wisdom, Obedience, Forgiveness, Friendship, Courage, Loyalty, Faithfulness, Respect, Self-Control, Contentment, Gratitude, Perseverance

  1. Would you believe I have not read any of these? I'm not sure if I'd rather read the inspirational book from different generations of motherhood or the fiction books at the top. Isn't it fun reading and then being able to share your favorite books! Great fun!
