About the Change and Cherish Series:

A Clearing in the Wild
Spirited young Emma Wagner chafes at the constraints of her 1850s religious community, which values conformity over independent thought, especially in women. Skeptical of the colony’s growing emphasis on preparing for “the last days,” Emma clashes with their increasingly autocratic leader—and faces the unexpected consequences of pursuing independence.

A Tendering in the Storm
This lyrical novel, based on an historical figure of the 1800s, follows the spirited and intelligent Emma Giesy, who achieves her goal of separating her family from the repressive religious community in which she grew up. But unexpected and dire consequences leave her family—and her faith—struggling to survive.

A Mending at the Edge
This richly textured novel, the third in the acclaimed Change and Cherish series, follows the historical figure of Emma Wagner Giesy, who chafes under the restrictions of her 1860s religious colony. When her bid to belong in her unique way unravels her most precious relationships, she seeks new ways to stitch meaning into her life.

Oh I'd love to win this. New books are always great especially when you haven't heard of them. My favorite fiction is a toss up really. I love a good mystery/thriller but at the same time I LOVE romance and chicklit books. :) Hope you are loving the bloggy giveaways.

What a great giveaway, Janis! I love a well-written book in any genre, with the possible exception of sci-fi and supernatural. Contemporary and historical dramas are my favorite.

I don't know that I really have a favorite type of fiction. I've always read a lot of mysteries, police procedurals, court dramas, psychological thrillers. Recently been reading more Christian fiction and enjoying it.

Thanks so much for your great review of my Change and Cherish series. Great question for your readers, too, which genre they like to read best. I'm always pleased when a lover of chick lit makes his or her way over to historicals because I think they have much in common with characters who struggle with the same sorts of issues regardless of the time period. Thanks for the give away....we all love a free book! Jane
