In Kathryn Cushman’s Another Dawn, single
mother Grace Graham finds herself coming full circle after choosing to run from
life’s difficulties since her mother’s passing more than four years ago.
At the request of her
sister and in hopes of reconciling with her father—whom Grace blames for her
mother’s death—Grace heads for her hometown of Shoal Creek, Tenn., to help her
father recover from surgery. While there, Grace’s 4-year-old son, Dylan, comes
down with the measles. Knowing that her California employer’s son became
autistic after being vaccinated worries Grace, so she decides against having
Dylan vaccinated. But when the disease spreads and the town is quarantined,
Grace is hit with a backlash of hate and blame, including from her sister whose
baby daughter is fighting for her life.
In spite of the
turmoil, Grace chooses to stay, and with the help of an old friend who comes to
her aid, she finds herself praying for her niece to be healed and that God will
help her reconcile her relationships.
Through her characters,
Cushman—a former pharmacist—demonstrates both sides of the immunization
argument. The well-written Another Dawn shows that choices have
consequences, good or bad, that affect others.

Anna Smith--wife of Martin Smith, lead
singer for the now-defunct U.K. Christian band Delirious--offers Meet Mrs.
Smith, an account of her life with Smith and the band.

days of her marriage. She also writes about her daily life and the ups and
downs of her numerous pregnancies.

impoverished communities around the world. While at times Smith struggled with
feeling alone during her husband’s international travels or in
understandstanding the things that burdened his heart, she stayed strong,
trusting the Lord to open her eyes to the same things—and God was faithful.
Mothers will relate to the

Ruby Case, a disabled mother of two boys—and a prayer warrior for
her community—just wanted to stay out of the limelight, and she is successful

His heart hardened by tragedy,
the Rev. Ian Clark isn’t sure he believes in miracles anymore, but he is
determined to find out. With the help of a few friends, Case and Clark uncover
more secrets than they bargained for. Case’s town is ruled by demonic powers,
and it’s up to a faithful few to stand together to expose and defeat the forces
that have held their town captive for years.
Duran’s debut novel is full of
characters having premonitions, seeing apparitions and engaging in occult
practices. It is terrifying,
but it’s also engaging and an eye-opener for the church, aiming to demonstrate
that spiritual warfare is still a reality today. The Resurrection will
appeal to readers of supernatural suspense and fans of authors such as Ted
Dekker and Eric Wilson.
