Interesting Find at the Library Sale Table

Today I stopped by the library and checked out the for sale table.
I was actually looking for some books for a friend of mine. but I happend to find two books that will fit nicely on my shelf.
First of all I found this interesting book on Mary Ingles I never heard of her before but her story sounds very interesting. looks like this one will be read after Pocahontas.
Then I came across a cozy mystery set in Buckingham Palace. So you know that book came home with me.
 It sounds like it will be more like the Royal Spyness series Which I  loved so I was glad to pick this one up.
                                     Now I should head off and get back to Pocahontas's story.
                                                                     Enjoy The Day !

This Week From the Library

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Marg that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library.Today I started volunteering at my local library  and while I was there I took a stroll through the shelves and picked these gems out to bring home to read.  Our small library has very few historical fiction to chose from so I was thrilled to find this one in the biography section.


Upcoming Release:Christian Historical Fiction

9/01/10



Can a Canaanite harlot who has made her livelihood by looking desirable to men make a fitting wife for one of the leaders of Israel? Shockingly, the Bible's answer is yes. At the age of fifteen Rahab is forced into prostitution by her beloved father. In her years as a courtesan, she learns to mistrust men and hate herself. Into the emotional turmoil of her world walks Salmone, a respected leader of Judah. Through the tribulations of a stormy relationship, Rahab and Salmone learn the true source of one another's worth in God and find healing from fear and rejection.

Julia has everything money can buy...except for acceptance by either the Gentiles or the Jews. Her Greek father already has a wife and family, leaving Julia and her Hebrew mother second-class citizens. But when they are introduced to followers of the Way, they become part of that community of believers. Abigail's brother, Jacob, now a young man, is attempting to discover his own place as a Christian. He is concerned that being more serious about his faith means trading away the exhilaration of his current profession as a caravan guard. Hired by Julia's father to protect the wealthy merchant's caravans on the secretive "Frankincense Trail"--undercover transport of this highly valuable commodity--Jacob also passes letters and messages between various communities of believers. He is alarmed to find out that Julia, hardly more than a girl, is also a messenger. Can their immediate mistrust be put aside to finally bring their hearts together?
