Update: Lo, How a Rose

I know I don’t keep you updated on all of my writing escapades and I apologize. But today, I have a few updates on my next publication.

Do you like the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale? You may know that I have started a series reimagining fairy tales set during the time of Kings Saul, David, and Solomon. Lo, How a Rose is book two in that series. Each book is slightly connected, but each can be read without the other.

I am excited to announce two things regarding my book, Lo, How a Rose.

1. Blog Tour

Lo, How a Rose_Ebook_Final.jpgEverything is against them
Born into slavery, Rapha is a Philistine who is almost twice as big as his Israelite masters. They find any excuse they can to beat him. When he is accused of murder, he runs off into the desert, planning to never return and hate all Israelites forever.

Nava’s mother died when she was born. Since then she has been raised mostly by her father, but her grandmother and grandfather have also helped. Her passion is to help those who need it most, whether it is watching the healer’s young daughter, Rina, or bringing fresh tunics for the Philistine slave who receives far too many whippings. When Rapha runs off into the desert with no water, Nava begs her father to go after him and bring him back safely.

Will Nava’s father find Rapha? Can Rapha learn that not all Israelites are untrustworthy? Will Nava trust her abba and Rapha to Yahweh’s care or take matters into her own hands?

  1. This is a unique take on the beauty and the beast story and see a connection to Faith Blum’s “Lo,A Rose”. Your books are so inspiring and so appreciate the Bible quotations, that are woven in the story.
