Waiting on Wednesday: September 1


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


These three are from authors that are new to me, but they sound really good:


Pearl in the Sand by Tessa Afshar, September 15
Rahab is an unlikely biblical heroine. Forced into prostitution, she builds up an elite clientele. Then she meets Salmone, a respected leader in Israel. Can a man of faith ever love her---a Canaanite harlot? Will their stormy relationship survive and bring healing to her scarred and shattered heart? A love story only God could conceive! 336 pages, softcover from Moody.


Angry by Laura L. Smith, September 30
Emma is angry. She’s angry at her siblings, who she always has to baby sit; her parents, who are divorcing and ruining her life in the process; and herself for not measuring up to anyone’s standards.

With her simmering feelings ready to spill over at any time, Emma's self-worth plummets and her faith in God in the face of overwhelming hurt threatens to send her over the edge. Can she turn back in time?

The Miracle of Mercy Land by River Jordan, September 30
In 1938, nothing exciting is happening in sleepy Bay City---until newspaper editor Doc Philips and his go-to girl Mercy Land stumble across a book that reveals a person's past and how his choices affect his future. But can they overcome the evil that threatens to steal the mysterious volume---erasing Bay City in the process? 352 pages, softcover from Waterbrook.
