Welcome to Friday!  Do you have a book ready to read this weekend? I have the perfect suggestion for you today.  If you you enjoy reading stories with castles, knights and ladies then you won’t want to miss today’s feature!

Today I’m pleased to be featuring Sword of Forgiveness by: Debbie Lynne Costello



Cumberland, England, 1398

Brithwin gazed at her father’s grey, lifeless face as she crossed the room. Other than a pinprick to her conscience, there was no sorrow. She faltered. Was his chest rising and falling? A dull roar filled her ears, drowning out her pounding heart.


Okay, you caught me. I gave you a bonus sentence (or two)!

Now it’s your turn!

  1. And the audio for Sword of Forgiveness is WONDERFUL!!!! It is sooo worth getting!
    Happy Friday! My first line is from Karen Kirst’s new LIH book The Engagement Charade, coming out July 1st (and it’s REALLY good!): “Alexander Copeland’s one goal in life was to be left alone.”

    Unless you get one of those miracles they’re always talking about in church, I don’t see how you’ll be able to keep the business open into spring.
