Carrie Ann Collier has been a newlywed for nineteen blissful days–as blissful as life can be in the midst of war, that is. Soon that war will take a toll she never expected. When her new husband, Peyton, goes missing during battle, she refuses to believe he is dead and must find a way to move forward with everyday life in the face of fear.
As Carrie struggles with how to welcome her estranged sister, Margaret, back into her life, another new arrival appears on her doorstep–her husband’s best friend, and rebel officer, Eli. Wounded and bitter, Eli is nonetheless committed to keeping his promise to Peyton: take care of the Collier women, no matter what. But to Carrie, he’s a painful reminder of her lost love.
Then unexpected news makes Carrie wonder if miracles do happen. If Carrie infiltrates the enemy once again, she might find out what really happened to the love of her life. Will Eli be able to keep his promise to keep her safe? Can they forgive each other if promises are broken?

The classic guide to biblical women who shaped Israel and the Church . . . and their messages and lessons for women today.
More than just a faddish look at a few bad girls from the Bible, this is the most widely used and best-selling study of Bible women-good and bad.
Drawing on the life, character, and experiences of more than thirty women of the Bible, the author combines solid biblical knowledge, interesting historical background, and human warmth to make these women live and speak to women today.
While the world has changed dramatically since these women lived, human nature and the pressures of female life have not. Imagination and insight add perception to these factual accounts taken directly from Scripture. Thoughtful and sympathetic questions for discussion at the end of each chapter allow today’s women to personally apply the lessons of the women God has chosen to preserve in Scripture.Captivating reading for personal insight. Readily adaptable to any class or study group setting. A superlative book for every woman who longs to achieve all that God has planned for her.

Keller looks at the prayer life of Jesus in this brief devotional designed to encourage the individual believer to draw near to God for guidance and strength.
Prayers come in “all shapes and sizes.” It may be a simple expression of thankfulness for an unexpected blessing. It may be a few moments of silence in awe of God’s majesty. Or it may be long hours of prolonged intercession for the needs of others. Whatever its form, real prayer is a living encounter with a living God. Best-selling devotional author W. Phillip Keller describes His Way to Pray as “an honest endeavor to lead the reader into close communion with our Father. It is intended to help people come to the living Lord Jesus Christ with confidence as their faithful Friend.” Keller looks at the prayer life of Jesus and discusses seven basic forms of prayer exemplified in the life and teachings of the Lord, including prayers of patience, confession, relinquishment, intercession, and stillness before God. Keller encourages us to take an honest look at our motivation and methods of prayer. Before the throne of grace, readers will realize anew the awesome power and peace of drawing near to God.
