Hi Everyone!  I have been reading Christian non-fiction for quite some time but I would consider myself still new to Christian fiction.  I know about some of the most famous authors like Francine Rivers, Angela Hunt, Lynn Austin, & a few others, but a friend gave me a book today by Linda Nichols called In Search of Eden & it looks great, I am hoping to have found a new author I will enjoy.  I had not heard of her so my question to you is...

Have you read anything by her & if so which titles did you like? 

(forgive me if she is super famous & I just don't know)  :)

I've read In Search of Eden...mainly because the story takes place where my husband is from, Abingdon VA.  her writing is well done, although since i've been in the town several times since we started dating, there were many things she changed about the town for the city (ie it's not THAT small at all)

but i really liked her writing and I have a couple more of her books in my TBR pile

She is one of my favorites and I am crushed that she hasn't written anything lately. I also love Kristen Heitzmann (though not so much her last book, Indivisible).

I keep waiting for her to publish something else but it's been a couple of years now.

She is one of the authors I read but it's been a long time since she has put out a new book.  I hope she has something in the works.

I also thoroughly enjoyed If I Gained The World and The Scent of Water...I read In Search of Eden 1st a couple of years ago and I am almost certain that is the very 1st book I posted and swapped on this site!!  I have liked all I have read; hopefully something new will come out soon.

I've read "Not A Sparrow Falls" by Linda Nichols and it was really good! It was the only one of her's that I have read but it did make me want to read more.


It's on my bookshelf if you're are interested in checking it out.wink
