HOT COMES OFF THE PRESS

Recent offers from regional authors:

“Even though the storm rages” by Rebekah Hawker Lusk. Published by Trilogy Christian Publishing. PLOT: Ella Ashford has had more than her fair share of the storms of life in 1880s Colorado. Overshadowed by her past, she yearns for even a hint of a bright future. Her trust in God falters as her surprising and sometimes hilarious struggles genuinely test her faith.
