Which author would you compare to Francine Rivers? Recently a friend asked me for authors who write like Francine Rivers and I have to say I'm stuck. Lynn Austin crosses my mind...any other ideas?

Francine Rivers is one of my favorite christian authors and i think she kind of stands alone, but here are some others that I would consider similar and are also high quality Christian writers:

Kristen Heitzmann

Liz Curtis Higgs (Historical novels especially)

Janette Oke and Davis Bunn (Acts of Faith series)

Lisa Samson

Angela Hunt

I hope this helps!

Christian Book.com has an author comparison chart. It's wonderful! Lynn Austin is the author listed for Francine Rivers, and I highly recommend her.

I agree with Vickie, I was going to say Angela Hunt.  I LOVE Shadow Women

Thanks ladies, I'm still stretching my head on this one...Francine Rivers does kinda stand alone...she's in a class by herself.
