Blogoversary Giveaway #35



Thanks to the fabulous team at Waterbrook Multnomah, I have bunches of good books to offer you. US only from my mailbox to yours. One of which is... is a Christian Historical Fiction that I am really looking forward to reading. Stealing Home by Allison Pittman.

Stealing Home: A Novel

It’s 1905 and the Chicago Cubs are banking on superstar Donald “Duke” Dennison’s golden arm to help them win the pennant. Only one thing stands between Duke and an unprecedented ten thousand dollar contract: alcohol.

That’s when sportswriter David Voyant whisks Duke to the one-horse town of Picksville, Missouri, so he can sober up in anonymity. He bides his time flirting with Ellie Jane Voyant, his unofficial chaperone, who would rather hide herself in the railway station ticket booth than face the echoes of childhood taunts.

Ned Clovis, the feed store clerk, has secretly loved Ellie Jane since childhood, but he loves baseball and the Duke almost as much–until he notices Ellie Jane may be succumbing to the star’s charm.

Then there’s Morris, a twelve-year-old Negro boy, whose only dream is to break away from Picksville. When Duke discovers his innate talent for throwing a baseball, Morris might just have found his way out.

Four individuals, each living in haunted isolation, each harboring a secret passion. Providence brings them together. Tragedy threatens to tear them apart. Will love be enough to bring them home?

I love reading historical christian fiction because I love history and love hearing about how people live in different time periods and adding a Christian spin to it just makes it better!

At first I didn't read historical for a long time because I didn't think I would like it, but once I tried it, I found out I love it. I love to "go back" to different times and places and see what it was like to live in a different era. I really enjoy it!

Blessings

I read historicals because I used to hate history books (kinda still do) and learning history through a novel is my 'cup of tea.'

I read historical Christian fiction because I like the adventure of life in a different time, and I prefer to read things that bring me closer to the Lord, instead of away from Him, as cliched as that sounds. :)

I feel Christian literature brings me closer to God. I can relate to the characters. I can learn holiness from the books.
You might say there is a moral to them. They have a plot.

I read Christian Historical Fiction mainly because I like history told in an interesting way. General fiction is fun, but you don't always learn as much as in historical fiction.

I read Christian Historical fiction because I like history in general...I have found that in most cases even though it is fiction it is truer to what really happened when a Christian novelist writes as opposed to non-christian novelists. Thanks for the chance! bekki1820cb@gmail.com

Christian Historical fiction lures me in that I can read and learn from what I'm reading with pretty much clean vocabulary.
