Sarah Sundin

Sarah Sundin Oh, how I love Sarah Sundin! And if you want to get some passion from me, all you have to do is talk books, especially by this author. Sarah Sundin ties with Karen Witemeyer for my favorite author. Her books are set in the World War II time period, which is my absolute favorite time period in history to read about. I love the patriotism, the fashions and just everything about this time period. Another thing I love about Sarah’s books is that they always contain a spiritual lesson that helps me grow as a Christian.


Sarah Sundin is an American author of Christian fiction, best known for her World War II-era historical romance series. She has written more than twenty novels, including the popular Wings of the Nightingale trilogy, the Wings of Glory series, and the Waves of Freedom series.

Sarah grew up in California and has a degree in pharmacy from the University of California, San Francisco. She began writing fiction in 2004, and her first book, A Distant Melody, was published in 2008. Since then she has become a popular author in the Christian fiction genre, with her books appearing on the CBA and ECPA bestseller lists.

Sarah’s books are set in the 1940s and feature strong female characters who face the challenges of war with courage and faith. Her stories often include romance, as well as themes of patriotism, loyalty, and friendship.

Sarah is passionate about history and research, and her books are noted for their accurate historical detail. She is also committed to creating stories that will inspire and encourage her readers.


Mary Connealy

Mary Connealy Mary Connealy writes love stories that also have an element of comedy and western flair. They are set in the late 1800s and usually involve ranching or some other western setting. Her books have brought me to both laughter and tears, which means she is a very talented author. Usually the hero in the book has a goal of gaining the heroine’s cooperation, which never goes his way. My favorite series by Mary Connealy is the “Sophie’s Daughters Trilogy.”


Tamera Alexander

Tamera Alexander Oh, Tamera Alexander is such a treasured author of mine. Her stories are so touching and so well thought out. Her plot lines have amazing twists and turns that have kept me trying to figure out what was really going on up until the last page. I don’t love her most current works as much as I do her first few books. My favorite series by her is “The Fountain Creek Chronicles.” You must read these!


Tamera Alexander's novels are truly a balm for the soul, with characters that resonate deeply and linger in your thoughts long after the last page is turned. The way she weaves faith into her storytelling is both natural and stirring, organically integrating it without ever feeling preachy. Her historical romance novels, in particular, bring the past to life with a vividness that is both educational and utterly captivating. For fans of historical accuracy blended with heartfelt romance, Alexander's works are a must-read! While her later novels are still enjoyable, they don't quite capture the magic of her earlier series.


Marta Perry

Marta Perry Marta Perry is a relatively new favorite of mine. She has written many, many books and actually wrote for the Love Inspired line for a long time. She writes a lot of Amish fiction, which I do not usually enjoy, but I did find that I enjoyed her Amish series, “Pleasant Valley.” These books have such a tender story line and also pack a good spiritual lesson for any Christian.

Famous Quotes

One who gains strength by overcoming obstacles possesses the only strength which can overcome adversity.

Albert Schweitzer

Vickie McDonough

Vickie McDonough This is another author that I only discovered recently. Her stories are very good and keep you curious as to what is going to happen next. Like Mary Connealy, her books are usually set in a western setting in the late 1800s. There is also a little comedy but enough touching moments to satisfy romantic hearts. I love her series, “Texas Boardinghouse Brides.”


Janette Oke

Janette Oke Lastly, but certainly not least, we come to Janette Oke. Janette Oke was the first Christian fiction author I ever experienced. When I received her series “Love Comes Softly” at the tender age of 15, I fell in love with her work. I still feel this series is one of her best works to date and plan on buying it for my daughter when she becomes a young teenager.

Now it’s your turn. I am always on the lookout for a new favorite Christian fiction author. Who are your favorites?

My mom introduced me to the books of an OLD writer named Grace Livingston Hill. Some of her books are quite interesting as a window to early America. My favorite and most re-read is Cloudy Jewel.

C.S. Lewis! Duh, best Christian writer of all time. His popular fiction pieces were Chronicles of Narnia and The Screwtape Letters. Can't believe he wasn't mentioned that is sad..

We'll let me tell you my story I recently broke up with my boyfriend of 3 and a half years. We ivied together however we were 15 years apart in age it was crazy and I knew I was taking a risk. I was the older one. To make a long story short one day he says to me I'm afraid I'm going to cheat on you. Wow I said its time for me to move on. I moved out and he begged me to stay but I refused because he wasn't ready and I was older and felt like I can't waste my time on a person who didn't know what hw

I adore all of Karen Witemeyer's books! Thanks for the great list. I'm definitely going to check some of these authors out!

Francine Rivers!! "Redeeming Love" is AWESOME!!

Jenny B. Jones' books are amazing! Did I mention she was a librarian at my school last year?!
