I am starting a new blog post, Lynn's Books and Blogs. It will chronicle my writing journey. my new book, ENCOUNTERING THE GOD OF WHOLENESS, tells of my healing journey. In it I share the importance of wholeness of body, soul and spirit.

This isn't a human story; it is a God story. It never leaves any doubt that God has our wholeness in mind. The book has an emphasis on progress even after the day of healing. It takes Gods out of the past and makes it a moment-by-moment reality.

Today's miracle stories often promote a person or a powerful event. What sets this miracle story apart? It promotes the God of scripture from first to last. Excerpted from endorsement by Rev. Ian Havercroft.

The Courier of Caswell Hall by Melanie Dobson - Book Review

About the book: An unlikely spy discovers freedom and love in the midst of the American Revolution.

As the British and Continental armies wage war in 1781, the daughter of a wealthy Virginia plantation owner feels conflict raging in her own heart. Lydia Caswell comes from a family of staunch Loyalists, but she cares only about peace. Her friend Sarah Hammond, however, longs to join the fight. Both women's families have already been divided by a costly war that sets father against son and neighbor against neighbor; a war that makes it impossible to guess who can be trusted.

One snowy night Lydia discovers a wounded man on the riverbank near Caswell Hall, and her decision to save him will change her life. Nathan introduces her to a secret network of spies, couriers, disguises, and coded messages---a network that may be the Patriots' only hope for winning the war. When British officers take over Caswell Hall and wreak havoc on neighboring plantations, Lydia will have to choose between loyalty and freedom; between her family's protection and her own heart's desires.

As both armies gather near Williamsburg for a pivotal battle, both Lydia and Sarah must decide how high a price they are willing to pay to help the men they love.

Part of the American Tapestries™ series: Each standalone novel in this line sets a heart-stirring love story against the backdrop of an epic moment in American history. This is the fifth book in the series.

My review: I loved this book. The story grabbed me and held me to the end. Melanie makes the Revolutionary War come through her vivid characterization. Although a work of fiction, events could had happened just as described. The book is full of romance, intrigue, suspense and more. There is tension which divided families. They were  divided in support of the Crown or their own country. Two friends have to decide and love.

I highly recommend this book. Well done, Melanie.
