I Love These Stories!

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ March 31, 2016

 

I love these stories!

At long last the series I began as the Cambridge Collection for Regal Books, then completed as The Cambridge Chronicles for Crossway, is coming back with a whole new look as the Where There is Love Series from Verity Press.

After almost a quarter of a century working with these books I can still say, “These are wonderful stories!” Don’t get me wrong— this isn’t any kind of authorial pride. These are wonderful stories because of what these people of outstanding faith did in real life.

I vividly recall being inspired in my own faith when I read of their struggles and triumphs and I prayed to be able to tell their stories in a way that would bring them alive for modern readers. That is still my prayer.

these stories recount the work of the 18th and 19th century Evangelical Anglicans— stories of God’s power working through people of faith to bring new vitality to his church and new life to his kingdom. Keeping strictly to the historical facts—often using the characters’ own words—the books chronicle the work of John and Charles Wesley, the Countess of Huntingdon, Rowland Hill, Charles Simeon, William Wilberforce, Florence Nightengale, the Earl of Shaftesbury, D. L. Moody, The Cambridge Seven, Hudson Taylor, and several other religious leaders of their day. In addition to the historical detail, each story features a romance and thoroughly researched backgrounds.

 

Where Love Begins, book 1 in the series, is now available:

Catherine Perronet’s world is shaken when she learns Charles Wesley is engaged to marry another. After all, Catherine’s initials were on the list John Wesley gave to his brother listing acceptable matrimonial candidates.

And that’s not all that’s wrong in Catherine’s world. As teacher at a Methodist Society school in London, she sees her brother beaten while preaching in the open air, her favorite pupil forced to leave school because of his family’s poverty, and a prisoner receive his death sentence in Newgate Prison. Catherine undertakes the joys and hardships of a circuit-ride preaching tour to Canterbury where a French invasion threatens then must face the terrors of the Great London Earthquake before coming to an understanding of the gentle calling God has for her. 

 

 Where Love Begins is now available free on Smashwords and for .99 on Kindle.                                                                                                                                             

The six books will come out—at this time in ebook only— throughout 2016. Watch for Where Love Illumines, coming soon.

I wish they were in print! I can't read ebooks, any plans to release these in print for those of us who can't read electronic?
