Readers of Christian fiction will be delighted to hear that we now have two new books from popular authors Karen Kingsbury and Francine Rivers.
In This Moment, by Karen Kingsbury, is the story of lawyer Luke Baxter and his struggles to defend Wendell Quinn, a high school principal, when he is sued for starting an after-school Bible study. Thanks to the program, the school has experienced a dramatic decrease in drug abuse, violence, and teen pregnancies, but the lawsuit threatens to bring all of that to a grinding halt.
Both Luke and Wendell are committed to their faith and determined to defend the freedoms the Constitution affords them, but in their fight for liberty, Luke encounters the difficult of managing his career and family life.
In Francine River’s The Masterpiece, the wealthy and haunted artist Roman Velasco and his reluctant personal assistant Grace Moore find themselves caught up in an unexpected romance. Roman, despite having everything a person could wish for, finds his life maddeningly empty, and only Grace seems to see it. As he vents his frustrations through a notorious graffitiing alter ego that could destroy his career, Grace must deal ghosts and secrets of her own. When they are inexplicably drawn to one another, could their feelings be the path to redemption for both of them?
