Ashley Dougall has a terminal disease and forgiveness is the only cure.
Ashley Dougall’s father stole her innocence, her selfish fiancé stole her heart, and unforgiveness is slowly stealing her life. Drawn by the desire to help others, she tries to escape haunting memories and enlists her services as a nurse in war-torn Europe. Along with her childhood friend and fiance’s brother, Samuel Miller, the fragile threads holding Ashley’s life in place one-by-one begin to snap. From the deck of the ill-fated Lusitania to the smoke-filled trenches of WWI, Ashley must choose between forgiveness of the past, life in the present, and a Savior who is willing to help her face them both.

Ashleigh must choose between the forgiveness of her past, life in the present, and a Savior who can rescue her from them all.

Last fall you may have seen other bloggers on the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance participate in a blog tour for the first in a long-awaited novel from author Pepper D. Basham. I signed up for the tour, but through a glitch it was an extended period of time before I got my hands on a copy of the book, but at long last it arrived. (You can also get it on Kindle for less than $4 last I checked!)

If you would like to read the first chapter of Thornbearer, go HERE.

and Coming Soon!
