Who sent the progress reports? Who collected the money Cal sent for supplies? Why did the school disband with no word to Callimachus? Of the ten teachers, he found news of only four: a murder, a suicide, a priestess in the cult of Dionysus, and one madman. The hills of Kursi and the tombs found there are home to the madman and the town is becoming increasingly frightened of the whole area. As Tallis investigates the disappearance of the school and the background of the madman, other forces are just as purposefully determined that he will not find out the truth about either one.
I found this novel hard to put down from the very beginning.

The historical detail Groot includes about biblical Palestine truly evoked a real sense of time and place without seeming hokey. The people in the story know that something bad is going to happen and Groot made me just as nervous about it as they were. The Christianity in this book was subtle and powerful without being overwhelming. She has taken the biblical story of the Gerasene demoniac and rendered it into a story that makes you think instead of one that preaches at you.

The Mermaid in the Basement (Lady Trent Mystery Series)
Hamilton, Jane. The Guardian. Nelson Publishing, This is the story of a guardian angel who is on trial in Heaven for the murder of a young boy, his human charge. As the story unfolds, we are introduced to human characters and each of their guardian angels. The intricate relationships between the angels, the human beings they protect and guide, and the angels themselves makes for a fascinating read.
This book transcends its genre to touch something deeply human in all of us. It is an uplifting story of how God's love and mercy helps one angel to move through tragedy to life. I recommend it to readers of any faith.
Jane's angels are witty, fun, and wonderful and her characterization and dialog are lively and thoroughly believable. Hamilton is a master of creating believable, enjoyable characters and bringing them to life. Heitzmann, Kristen. Bethany House, Heitzmann does the Romantic suspense category justice here.

As the townsfolk talk of a mysterious "pact" they have made with one another, they muse cryptically, "Maybe they'd slain the devil, but his works were not forgotten. Heitzmann paces her story well, and there is an appealing tension as the plot unfolds. The joy of this novel is in Heitzmann's competent voice, engaging characters and many original touches. Karon, Jan. Viking, Karon's bestselling series of Mitford novels has concluded with 25 million copies sold to date, but to the relief of eager fans, she introduces a new series featuring Father Tim.
The beloved Episcopal priest returns to his childhood town of Holly Springs, Miss. The novel is thick with Father Tim's past, as Karon uses flashbacks to shed light on his early adulthood, especially his transition to seminary. In Holly Springs, his penchant for getting near strangers to open up to him—and his earnest, moving reflections on faith, prayer and the risks of love—are reassuringly present.
His wife, Cynthia, is on stage far less than he, but when she appears, she is charming and insightful, as usual. Yet the book is far from perfect. Development of the quirky locals in Holly Springs is thin, and the end is a tad abrupt. Most frustratingly, the central drama of the novel falls flat: Father Tim discovers a long-buried family secret, but he doesn't grapple deeply enough with the emotional consequences of his discovery, nor does Karon fully explore the ways in which the secret plunges us into the Southern quagmire of race. Still, Mitford fans will enjoy this newest visit with wise, winsome, lovable Father Tim.
Meyer, Joyce and Deborah Bedford. The Penny. Faith Words, I was not disappointed. This is a story of true friendship despite hardship maintaining it in a prejudiced United States. Inadvertently stopping a robbery when she makes a chance decision, fourteen-year-old Jenny Blake forges life-changing friendships which teaches her about meeting painful life challenges through faith.
I recommend it. Morris, Gilbert. Thomas Nelson, This novel of Victorian England is from one of our most prolific Christian fiction authors. This novel is book one of a new series.
