It is the end of the week and time for a break from the every-day work routine and a chance to invest a little more time in other pursuits.  Don’t forget to enter the giveaway running this week.

If you enjoy reading Biblical based fiction and are looking for a story rich with historical and archaeological research, then I have the perfect book for you!

LSBakerL.S Baker Jr. is a real-life, Indiana-Jones-hat-wearing, Archaeologists. He desires to make the (sometimes dry) realities of Archaeological research, come to life for those who haven’t studied the field. Despite the hat, real-life archaeology isn’t like what you see in Indiana Jones movies.



“Land of Rameses” an epic historical-biblical mystery novel.

It is the Exodus story you know and love, told as you’ve never read and faithful to the Bible and Egyptian Archaeology in a way you’ll never forget. Land of Rameses reveals the secret to ultimate triumph following abject failure. It is the story of the struggle we all have to endure in order to either suppress or succumb to the pressure of outside forces on our lives.


June, 1447 B.C.
Mount Horeb, Sinai

Two men walked left, through the gap in the mountains, up a gentle slope before tackling a much steeper climb among giant boulders and over large cobbles. Together they had waited six days on a small flat ledge nestled at the base of the mountains for this moment, for this day, this Sabbath.

  1. Sounds interesting! I’ll have to check it out.

    I have the first line from Kara Isaac’s AMAZING new release “Then There Was You” on my blog, but the first line I’m sharing here is from Kara Swanson’s recent release, “The Girl Who Could See”. (It must be a Kara kind of day!)

  2. I haven’t heard of this author or this book. Here’s mine: Mistakenly Married by Victorine Lieske: “Penny wrung her hands and walked to the back of the room.”

  5. Such an interesting premise! And great first line.

    On my blog is the first line from “Promise Me This” by Cathy Gohlke, but here I’ll share the first line of the book I got in the mail yesterday: “Heart on the Line” by Karen Witemeyer! This will be my first to read of hers…
