FrontGate Media Blog Tour: The Wounded Tiger by T. Martin Bennett

"Wounded Tiger" by T. Martin Bennett is a riveting narrative that weaves together the lives of three individuals against the backdrop of World War II.

The first is Mitsuo Fuchida, a Japanese pilot who led the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor. Fuchida, filled with a deep-seated hatred for America and a strong sense of national and racial pride, rises through the ranks of the Japanese Navy. His life is driven by revenge, but he ultimately finds peace with himself and his enemies.

The second is Jake DeShazer, an American bombardier burning with a vengeance after the attack on Pearl Harbor. He joins the U.S. Army and spends years as a prisoner of war, battling insanity in solitary confinement. His life takes a turn when he discovers the secret to change.

The third narrative involves the Covells, an American family of missionaries in Japan. They flee the country to the Philippines, and their eldest daughter, Peggy, unknowingly impacts the course of Fuchida's life forever.

This book is a testament to the power of transformation and redemption. It's a journey through hatred and revenge, surrender and transformation, and it reveals how ordinary lives lived out faithfully to their calling can impact the destiny of a people and a nation.

"Wounded Tiger" is more than just a historical account; it's a vivid tale that lets you watch the story unfold before, during, and after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. It's a story that shows the true impact of this infamous event in world history.

I really enjoy Historical Books, especially when they are Non-Fiction books. Wounded Tiger by T. Martin Bennett is the latest in this genre that I have read. 

I was intrigued by this book from the VERY first Chapter. I feel I learned so much about Pearl Harbor that I didn't know before. The author really did his research for this book and the writing is very easy to understand. World War II is one of the most significant parts of History and the author truly makes everything come to light through the storytelling in this book. The stories of the 3 families featured in this book are heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. I also saw God's hand throughout the Families Stories. I HIGHLY recommend this book to those who are LOVE History Novels and learning about important parts of our History! GREAT BOOK!

  • Wounded Tiger reads like a novel because it is a novel with authentic details found in nonfiction while maintaining the dynamic “now” feel of a dramatic character-driven story.
  • Over 300 photos, maps, letters, and images
  • Three main plotlines and stories begin separately, but slowly come together in an unpredictable and captivating way.
  • Includes historically accurate perspectives of the Pacific War from both the Japanese and American sides.
  • And Wounded Tiger takes the reader through a host of social issues and ideological conflicts through the characters' viewpoints.

After attending Westmont College in Santa Barbara, T. Martin Bennett served as vice president of a nonprofit company with Keith Green, a leading recording artist, public speaker, and writer. He later co-founded a manufacturing company that grew to over 100 employees, 20 million dollars a year in sales, and won the national Small Business Administration Entrepreneur of the Year award.

In 2005, Bennett stumbled across rare information about Mitsuo Fuchida, the Japanese pilot who led the attack on Pearl Harbor. The Tennessee-based author, screenwriter, and entrepreneur says, “I’d never heard a single word about Fuchida, other than that he was a villain.” But as he started researching Fuchida’s life, Bennett wondered how the world hadn’t heard about this incredible story and felt he had to tell the world. After three years of research, Bennett first penned this as a feature-length, epic screenplay—later novelized into book form.

He is currently working on securing funding to send “Wounded Tiger” into production as a feature film. Bennett is also working on 20+ other feature films and film series projects.

JustRead Tours Blog Tour: And Their Numbers Grew by Naomi Craig and Donna E. Lane

And Their Numbers Grew JustRead Blog Tour

Welcome to the Blog Tour for And Their Numbers Grew by Naomi Craig & Donna E. Lane, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

And Their Numbers Grew

Title: And Their Numbers Grew
Naomi Craig and Donna E. Lane
Bear's Place Publishing
Release Date: November 7, 2023
Biblical Historical Fiction

Four lives. Four destinies. One gospel.  

Fans of Mesu Andrews and Connilyn Cossette will love And Their Numbers Grew.  

If you love The Chosen, the story continues in And Their Numbers Grew.
Rumors of the risen Christ spread through Jerusalem like a wildfire—and the Sanhedrin is paying attention. 

Their efforts to stifle the name of Jesus only fuel the cause until a young Pharisee gets involved, breathing threats of imprisonment—or worse. Stephen’s brutal stoning accelerates the persecution and sends the faithful fleeing the city for their lives. 

They are afflicted in every way, but not crushed. As the fledgling church disperses, their numbers continue to grow. Now, the apostles must train the new believers in the ways and words of Jesus—and what it means to live in God's Kingdom here on earth. 

The Kingdom of God spreads to Damascus, Joppa, Caesarea, Antioch, and Tarsus through the testimonies of Ananias, Tabitha, and Barnabas. While an outraged Saul sets out for Damascus to arrest them all, the followers press on fervently, with the help of the Holy Spirit—though it may cost them their lives.  

Four disciples whose lives are intertwined, told in four novellas, chronicling the birth pains of the early church.

 Biblical Historical Fiction is not usually a genre that I read. I felt compelled to read this book, And Their Numbers Grew by  Naomi Craig and Donna E. Lane. I have read a few books by Naomi Craig and have always enjoyed her books. 

I will be truthful, I wasn't sure how much I would enjoy this book. Well, I was captivated from the very first novella. The book is Four Novellas in one book. I really LOVE how the Authors have taken the Biblical Hisotry of the Beginning of the Church and turned it into a Fiction Novella. The four main characters 
are  Stephen, Ananias, Barnabas, and Tabitha. Each has their own story and the stories are based on the Book of Acts. The book is intriguing as it has different storylines that also contain Romance and Spiritual aspects.  The flow from one novella to the next is smooth. I truly enjoyed this Fiction Book of the Early Christians. I HIGHLY recommend this book to those who want to learn more about the Early Church and enjoy Fiction books. GREAT BOOK!

JustRead Tours Blog Tour: Her Christmas Healing by Mindy Obenhaus

Her Christmas Healing JustRead Takeover + Review Blitz

Welcome to the Takeover + Review Blitz for Her Christmas Healing by Mindy Obenhaus hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

Her Christmas Healing Title: Her Christmas Healing 
Series: K-9 Companions #17; Hope Crossing #4 
Author: Love Inspired 
Publisher: Bethany House Publishers 
Release Date: November 28, 2023 
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

Christmas is around the corner…

And love might be right next door. 

Hope Crossing, Texas, is just what Jillian McKenna needs. Here, she can recover after a terrible attack…and create a home for her baby-to-be. But she also has a complication next door. She once saw a future with veterinarian Gabriel Vaughn—a future that feels impossible now. But with love, faith, a support dog and some Christmas spirit, maybe it’s not too late after all… 

From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope. 

I truly love Christmas themed books and I also enjoy the Love Inspired Books. Author Mindy Obenhaus is a favorite of mine. Her Christmas Healing by Mindy Obenhaus is Book 4 in the Hope Crossing Series. I have read all the books in this series and have anxiously awaited the release of Book 4.

Jillian McKenna was living in Dallas, TX but has moved back home to Hope Crossing, TX. She loved living in Dallas, but she was attacked while out jogging and doesn't feel safe anymore in Dallas. She is arriving home to live with her Grandma for a time and she is also pregnant due to the attack. She is excited to try to get settled in before the baby comes and start the process of healing, physically and emotionally from the attack. Gabriel Vaughn is a local veternarian and also the next door neighbor. Jillian and Gabriel started a frienship when she was visiting her Grandma. They have been texting and calling one another for some time. He is quite surprised to see her back in Hope Crossing and even more surprised that she is pregnant. Gabriel has been going through a lot of situations himself and has a lot on his mind! Jillian would love to have a relationship with Gabriel, but she is unsure that he would want one with her. They begin helping the local Youth Group with a Fundraiser and spending time together. They both feel they are growing closer again. Will Jillian and Gabriel be able to help each other heal? Will they have a future together? 

WHOA, another great book by Mindy Obenhaus! I really like how she was sensitive to the Attack topic and how it was written into the book. Jillian is a woman of strength and courage who knows that she must take time to heal emotionally before the baby arrives and moves to Hope Crossing. Gabriel is an AMAZING character for the book. I truly appreciate how he is willing to give Jillian a chance, even after she ghosted him in communication efforts while in Dallas. They both decide to give back by helping the Youth Group and they realized that God can make the impossible possible by trusting in God! The book is one of Faith, LOVE, and Second Chances! I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Romance. GREAT BOOK!

Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: Rocky Mountain Promise by Misty M. Beller

Book: Rocky Mountain Promise

Author: Misty M. Beller

Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Release Date: November 21, 2023

Lorelei Collins possesses a soft heart for any animal in need, so when she finds a buffalo calf bawling beside its mother’s lifeless body, she can’t help but bring it home to raise on the ranch she and her sisters are building in the Rocky Mountain wilderness. Little does she realize that its white coloring is rare and considered sacred by Native Americans, which makes it highly valuable to them and the European trappers alike.

A flood of men visit their ranch to regard the marvel, some trying to woo Lorelei into marriage so she’ll bring the buffalo calf along as dowry, and others trying to steal the calf outright. When the men’s advances become more sinister, she approaches Tanner Mason, the quiet and mysterious owner of the new trading post, with an idea: She and the calf will move to his post, along with her family’s trusted Blackfoot friend. This will solve both their problems, bringing customers to his trade room and protecting her family from the trouble brought on by so many strangers. Yet as the danger travels with her, Lorelei and Tanner are faced with a threat greater than anything they’re prepared for–one that will test the limits of both their abilities and the love growing between them.

USA Today bestselling author Misty M. Beller delivers an exhilarating addition to the Sisters of the Rockies series fraught with peril, adventure, and romance amid the majesty of the Rocky Mountains.

Misty M. Beller is one of my favorite authors and I am always anxious to read her new books. Rocky Mountain Promise is Book 2 in the series, Sisters of the Rockies. I recently had the opportunity to read this book! 

Lorelei Collins finds a Buffalo Calf and notices his mama is dead. She does what any animal lover would do and decides to take it back to the Ranch that her sisters and herself moved to recently. Lorelei soons learns that the calf's white coloring is scared amongst the Native Americans and the calf is valuable to Native Americans and Trappers. Lorelei and the calf are in danger as men approach her offering to marry her and some are trying to steal the calf. Tanner Mason is the new owner of the newest Trading post in town. He has become a friend of Lorelei and her sisters and she asks him to move herself and the calf to his Trading Post for safety. Tanner steps it up to protect the Calf and Lorelei, especially when the men seem to find her and follow her. Tanner and Lorelei find themselves attracted to one another as they spend time at the Trading Post. Will they escape danger and keep the calf and themselves safe? Will there be a relationship between Tanner and Lorelei? 

I was intrigued by the storyline and characters from the first chapter. I am also an Animal Lover so it warmed my heart when Lorelei rescued the calf. My favorite character in this book was Tanner as he really grew in his faith and wanted to help Lorelei. I really felt like I was back in time to the late 1830's as I was reading this book! The book has many twists and turns that I had to keep reading until I was done. The book is also Faith-based and I truly LOVED the Lorelei was able to help Tanner become strong in his Faith.  I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Historical Fiction! I will "patiently anxiously" await for Book 3 in this series! FANTASTIC BOOK!

Misty M. Beller is a USA Today bestselling author of romantic mountain stories, set on the 1800s frontier and woven with the truth of God’s love.

Raised on a farm and surrounded by family, Misty developed her love for horses, history, and adventure. These days, her husband and children provide fresh adventure every day, keeping her both grounded and crazy.

Misty’s passion is to create inspiring Christian fiction infused with the grandeur of the mountains, writing historical romance that displays God’s abundant love through the twists and turns in the lives of her characters.

Sharing her stories with readers is a dream come true for Misty. She writes from her country home in South Carolina and escapes to the mountains any chance she gets.


More from Misty

My latest release, Rocky Mountain Promise, follows the four Collins sisters who traveled west to accomplish their father’s deathbed request, and stayed on to run a ranch in the Wyoming Rockies. This particular book is Lorelei’s story, the third sister by age.

I loved writing Lorelei! She LOVES animals and has a heart to heal and nurture. Growing up on a ranch in the early 1800s, she understands that animals are important to survival, but she loves taking in any injured or orphaned creature she finds.

Like the orphaned buffalo calf with beautiful shades of white fur she discovered on the plains. The creature was only a couple weeks old, far too young to survive on its own in the wild, so she took it home to nurture until it could be released back into a herd.

Little did she know, white buffalos are extremely rare and considered sacred by the Indians, which puts them in high demand. I first learned about this belief when I was reading the non-fiction book My Life as an Indian, a memoir of James Willard Schultz, a white man who married into the Blackfoot tribe and lived among them for many years.

The respect for the white buffalo originally began with the Sioux, and they have a legend about the White Buffalo Woman that I won’t take time to share here (though you can read about it in Rocky Mountain Promise!). The deep respect for a white buffalo spread quickly among all the tribes and the trappers who lived in the Rockies and the surrounding plains, and such a creature (or even its hide) became one of the most sought after treasures in that day!

In Lorelei’s story, trapper and Indian alike show up in their cabin yard to see the remarkable white calf, some trying to woo her into marriage so she’ll bring the buffalo calf along as dowry. Others try to steal the calf outright. She ends up taking drastic measures to protect both the calf and her family. Any guess what she did?

I pray you love Rocky Mountain Promise as much as I do!
