Evergreen by Susan May Warren. An empty nest has Ingrid Christiansen dreading the upcoming holidays, but her husband, John, is excited about this new season of life. He even has a surprise trip abroad planned but a major church project, an emergency surgery, and an unexpected guest show up, causing the trip to be cancelled. A deep chill settles over John and Ingrid’s marriage. Can they find a way to put the past behind and find their love for each other again?

Gods and Kings by Lynn Austin. Follow King Hezekiah, heir to the throne of King David. When his father plots to sacrifice him, Hezekiah’s mother searches for a way to save him. But only two men can help her, neither of them trustworthy. In a time and place engulfed by violence, treachery, and infidelity to God, Abijah and her son must discover the one true Source of strength if they are to save themselves and their country. A must-read…it will give you a completely different image of the Bible story.
