Are you ready? Are you excited?! I am!! One of the best ways to find a good suggestion for a read is to check the award winners. While in children’s books we go for Caldecott Honor, Caldecott Medal and Newberry Medal… in Christian Fiction, it’s all about the Christy Awards. The winners will be announced on July 16th, and in preparation I want to share with you some reviews of 2012 Christy Award Nominees that I enjoyed. Starting with… Mine is the Night by Liz Curtis Higgs. How appropriate, as Liz was my introduction to Christian Historical Fiction in 2000, when my passion for the genre began. (And to think, that led me now to www.ChristianHistoricalFiction.com!) *Originally posted June 2011* Mine is the Night by Liz Curtis Higgs Sequel to Here Burns My Candle Genre: Christian Historical Fiction Pages: 464 Trade Paperback Date Published: March 15, 2011 Publisher: WaterBrook Multnomah. . .
