Summary

A journalist’s investigation leads her into danger and murder: “This contemporary thriller, set in India and London, is intriguing and thought provoking.” —NB Magazine 
 
Samantha is a journalist in search of a big break that could make a career. When she comes across a little-reported story in India about a hotelier named Amit Joshi—who was accused of rape but exonerated when it was revealed he is actually female—Samantha believes there’s more to uncover. She begins to investigate, helped by a colleague, Gregory, whose brother Simon works for the British High Commission in Delhi. 
 
But as more comes to light, Simon is found brutally murdered. And when Gregory travels to India to discover what happened to his brother, he goes missing. With the authorities seemingly unable to help, Samantha heads to India to search for Gregory and discover the truth behind Amit’s story and Simon’s murder. But thrown into a dark underworld with danger at every turn, she fears that the truth could prove to be the death of not just the story but Samantha herself . . .

    If any place on God's earth was designed to help one heal, it is Meadowland. Surely here, at her brother-in-law's Kentucky farm, Rose and her daughters can recover from the events of the recent past--the loss of her husband during the 1918 influenza epidemic, her struggle with tuberculosis that required a stay at a sanatorium, and her girls' experience in an orphanage during her illness. At Meadowland, hope blooms as their past troubles become rich soil in which their faith can grow. 
     
    Dirk Meadows may have opened his home to his late brother's widow and her girls, but he keeps his heart tightly closed. The roots of his pain run deep, and the evidence of it is written across his face. Badly scarred by a fire and abandoned by the woman he loved, Dirk fiercely guards his heart from being hurt again. But it may be that his visitors will bring light back into his world and unlock the secret to true healing. 
     
    Bestselling author Ann H. Gabhart explores the tender places within the human heart in this character-driven story of trusting God to turn our burdens into something beautiful.

    Recently her ailing mother too has passed away, which means that her stepfather, Sir Hector Preston, is now her Guardian. To make matters worse he promises her hand in marriage to a cruel and uncouth man called Bernard Howell, a Fate that she considers worse than dying. 
    As her mother suggested soon before her death, Helga goes for help to her estranged Aunt Millicent, a glamorous actress from the notorious Gaiety Theatre – and her life changes forever.

    And, despite Aunt Millicent's firm instructions not to fall in love with the Duke, Helga is smitten and finds that playing the part of the lovestruck fiancée requires no acting at all. 
    But all that changes when by chance Helga again meets the dreaded Bernard Howell, who pursues her brandishing his horse whip and she races back to Rock Castle to the Duke to save her –
