Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: Facing the Dawn by Cynthia Ruchti

Book:  Facing the Dawn

Author: Cynthia Ruchti

Genre: Contemporary Women’s Fiction

Release date: March 2, 2021

Mara Jacobs has been struggling. While her humanitarian husband is digging wells in Africa and caring for widows and orphans, Mara has been battling the home front—working a demanding yet unrewarding job, trying to manage three detention-prone kids, and suffering from exhaustion and depression. Even her own marriage is deteriorating after a three-year separation.

Then Liam’s absence turns into something more, changing everything and plunging her into a sunless grief. As Mara leans on those around her to find her way to healing and renewed faith, she discovers that even when hope is tenuous and the future is unknown, we can be sure we are not forgotten . . . or unloved.

Facing the Dawn is an emotionally evocative novel that will resonate with readers’ lives and their life challenges. Hemmed in hope, this tender story will be one readers will not soon forget.

Cynthia Ruchti is a "new to me author" and I truly was intrigued to read
this book, "Facing the Dawn" because of the Cover. The cover of this 
book is absolutely beautiful. I certainly was not ready for the emotional
read that this book brings. 

Mara Jacobs has been raising her 3 teenage children by herself for 
the past 3yrs. Her husband, Liam, has taken a job in Uganda, and has
about another year before he is home. Mara also works and has a lot
going on. She is very independent and does not like to ask for help, so
she is also exhausted. Mara has really back slid from God and her faith. 
She is mostly looking forward to her husband coming home. Tragedy 
strikes and Mara's husband is killed in an accident in Uganda. She is 
really struggling and then another family tragedy happens and it really
sends Mara into a period of ultimate grief and dispear. A friend of hers, 
Ashley, moves to town and sees how Mara is going through so much. 
Ashley is strong in her faith and is determined to help Mara through 
the unthinkable grief and tragedies that Mara has gone through. Will 
Ashley prove to that true Best Friend Forever and help Mara through 
her grief and tragedy? Will Mara, like her daughter has, be able to 
trust in God and know that God is in control? 

I don't think I have ever read such an emotional and heart wrenching
book. I really did enjoy the book and would read it again. The author 
really writes with a unique style and tells a difficult story but with  
sensitivity and emotion. Mara is a character who goes through a couple
of tragedies in a short amount of time and reacts as most anyone would. 
Ashley brings the hope and encouragement that the book so needed. 
Have a Box of Facial Tissue near you when reading, but I HIGHLY 
recommend this book.

More from Cynthia

When I sit down to write a novel, I sometimes have little more than a title or a single scene in my head. For Facing the Dawn, I had a mental picture of a woman who felt like circumstances had drained all the “color” out of her life, as if she were a piece of fabric that had been left out in the sun too long. Faded. Threadbare. Bleached out.

Where was I supposed to go from there? What would have made her feel like that? (Oh, I could imagine, but I needed to know THIS character’s story.) I visualized her called in the principal’s office at her kids’ school, not knowing which of the three was in trouble this time. But it was her. The ridiculousness of it all was almost enough to push her over the edge. Ever been there?

For Mara in the story, a long string of disappointments clogged her life like a backed-up sink (which she also had). Then true tragedy struck. And again. But I couldn’t leave her in that place.

When I wrote the last few words of the story, my heart was full. Tears fell on the pages—or the keyboard. And I reflected back on all the symbolism in the story that actually revealed bits of hope embedded in its fabric.

I’m excited to see how readers respond when they discover those little bits—a cardinal in a stand of birch trees, an oil painting with unusual brushstrokes, a papered wall, a cup of soup, a long-forgotten song, an envelope of ashes…

A story comes to life when readers dive in. I’m looking forward to hearing what they find when they do.

JustRead Tours Blog Tour: A Brother's Promise by Mindy Obenhaus

A Brother's Promise JustRead Blog Tour 

Welcome to the Blog Tour for the A Brother's Promise by Mindy Obenhaus, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

A Brother's Promise

Title: A Brother's Promise
Author: Mindy Obenhaus
Publisher: Harlequin Love Inspired
Release Date: February 23, 2021
Genre: Inspirational Contemporary Romance

A little girl will change his world… 

 He didn’t realize he wanted a family… 

 until he suddenly became a single dad. 

 After his sister’s death, rancher Mick Ashford’s determined to ensure his orphaned niece, Sadie, feels at home. And accepting guidance from Christa Slocum is his first step. But just as Christa and Sadie start to settle into Mick’s heart, Sadie’s paternal grandparents sue for custody. Now Mick must fight to keep them together…or risk losing the makeshift family he’s come to love.

Love Inspired books are always a GREAT read. A Brother's Promise is the second book in the Bliss, Texas series by Mindy Obenhaus. I had the pleasure of reading book one in this series, although this book reads great as a Stand Alone book. 

Mick Ashford, a local rancher in Bliss, TX, becomes a Single Dad overnight. He takes custody of his 5yr old niece after the tragic death of both of her parents. Sadie's mom, Mick's Sister, and her dad died in a Plane Crash. Mick knew he had to step up and take care of his niece. He wants to make her feel comfortable so one of the first things is he wants to paint and decorate a bedroom for her. He heads to the local Hardware Store, which is run by Christa Slocum, where he selects a paint color for the bedroom. Christa knows by the color he chooses, he is going to need some help and advice. Christa is also Mick's Neighbor and although they have been neighbors for sometime, they really haven't gotten to know each other. Christa steps in and helps Mick get Sadie settled into her new 
home. Christa is also that "motherly" figure that Sadie is missing right now. Mickfeels his heart expanding with LOVE for Sadie and actually for Christa also. He neverimagined he could be the "Daddy" type, also being a loner, he never imagined he could fall in love with someone. Mick is suddenly sued by Sadie's Paternal Grandparents for Full Custody. Mick knows he has to fight for Custody of Sadie and for the "family" he has created with Sadie and Christa. Will he gain Full Custody of Sadie and honor his sister
by raising her? Will Mick give up his "loner" lifestyle to have a family with Christa and Sadie? 

WOW, I absolutely LOVED this book! I read it from front to back within 2hrs. The storyline, although tragic, has many heartwarming moments. I especially was warmed by Christa stepping in and helping Sadie be comfortable and help her grieve through the loss of both parents.  Mick is a loving Uncle and I love how Sadie really enjoys spending time on the Ranch with Uncle Mick. Grab a copy of this book, you definitely won't be disappointed.

JustRead Tours Blog Tour: The Earl's Lady Geologist by Alissa Baxter

The Earl's Lady Geologist JustRead Blog & Review Tour 

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for The Earl's Lady Geologist by Alissa Baxter, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

The Earl's Lady Geologist

Title: The Earl's Lady Geologist
Series: The Linfield Ladies Series
Author: Alissa Baxter
Publisher: Vinspire Publishing
Release Date: February 28, 2021
Genre: Clean Regency Romance

Cassandra Linfield is a lady fossil collector who declares she will never marry as no man will ever take her studies seriously. When circumstances force her to travel to Town for the Season, Cassy infiltrates the hallowed portals of the Geological Society from which she has been banned. She is horrified when she comes face to face with her nemesis, the infuriating Earl of Rothbury. 

Lord Rothbury is a gentleman-geologist with a turbulent romantic past. After a youthful disappointment, he vows never to fall in love again and makes the decision, instead, to seek out a convenient wife when he returns to England from his geological travels abroad. 

Brought together by their close family ties, Cassy and Rothbury collaborate on a geological paper and discover a powerful attraction. Marriage, however, is the one subject they cannot agree upon. But when Cassy’s life is threatened, the two realize that love matters more than their objections.

The Regency Era is a favorite time period of mine and I enjoy books based 
during that time. Alissa Baxter is a new to me author and I was intrigued by 
the book cover and synopsis. The Earl's Lady Geologist is Book #1 in the 
Linfield Ladies Series. 

Cassandra Linfield is a lady fossil collector and is very much into her career and passion. She has NO interest in marrying ever. Cassy is very much into her work, but her Aunt convinces her to travel to Town for the Season and Cassy agrees. She gets involved in the Geological Society while there, even though she was banned. She is trying to avoid Earl of Rothbury, who is a fellowGeologist, but someone she detests. Earl of Rothbury is unavoidable and the 2 run into each other. Cassy and Rothbury begin working on a Geological project together and the feelings seem to begin coming out toward one another. They realize they are beginning to like each other, but neither are wanting a relationship and they definitely don't want to marry anyone. Cassy's life is threatened and they both realize that Earl of Rothbury is a protector and that maybe a marriage isn't too far in the future. Will Cassy and Earl of Rothburycomplete their project? Will they realize that LOVE is grand and give LOVE and maybe marriage a chance? 

WOW, why haven't I read any other books by Alissa Baxter before now! She has an amazing writing style and keeps the reader intrigued with a great storyline. The Historical time of the book was well done. The Charactersof the book are interesting and each has their own personality that reallycomes out. I LOVED Book 1 in the Linfield  Ladies series and look forward to reading the series as the books are released! FANTASTIC BOOK!

Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: Soon the Dawn by Linda Brooks Davis

Book:  Soon the Dawn

Author: Linda Brooks Davis

Genre: Historical  fiction

Release Date: February 9, 2020

Ella thought becoming a mother to five daughters a month after marriage would be difficult.  Sixteen years later, letting go is even harder.  What should be a joyous time of Amaryllis spreading her wings as she graduates from the College of Industrial Arts… isn’t.

Ella fears that Amaryllis will lose a grip on her faith, her upbringing, and the goals Ella believes she should have.  Will Ella’s mother-in-law’s high society friends puff up the girl until Amaryllis loses sight of what’s important?  If Amaryllis stays away, can Ella trust that the Lord will keep the girl safe? Can she trust Him with her daughter’s well-being period?

Of course, she can!  But will she?

When everything begins to crumble around her, Ella must decide where she will place her trust—in her own capable hands or in the Lord’s sovereign ones.


Click here to get your copy!

I have enjoyed many of Linda Brooks Davis books. I was excited to 
be able to read her latest, a Novella, Soon the Dawn. Soon the Dawn
is Book 1 in the Valley of Promise series. 

Ella never thought she would become a mom so quickly after being 
married. Ella and Andrew were enjoying the newlywed life when they 
were asked to adopt 5 sisters, just one month after their wedding. 
16 years later and the oldest is ready to graduate from College and 
embark into life on her own. Ella isn't sure if Amaryllis is steady in her 
faith and will Amaryllis heed her mother's advice for goals that Ella 
would like her to achieve. Ella seems to have trust issues about letting
her daughter "fly the coop". Will Amaryllis follow her dreams and follow 
her faith? Will Ella trust God to care for her daughter? Will the mom 
and daughter's relationship be strong throughout the "moving forward" 
in life transition? 

The Novella, Soon the Dawn, is a short book and was an easy read. I 
was engrossed in the storyline very quickly upon opening the book. I really 
enjoyed the book immmensely. Ella has so many heartbreaking things happen while raising the family, but she persevered. Linda Davis Brooks does a great job of telling the story and keeping with the Historical times of the 1920's. The book about a family joys and heartbreaks of growing up and all that family life entails. It is one about Trusting God and not trying to handle lifes challenges on our own. I HIGHLY recommend the book!

Linda’s debut novel, Amazon best-selling The Calling of Ella McFarland, Book One in the Women of Rock Creek series, is set in 1905 Indian Territory prior to Oklahoma statehood. It won Jerry Jenkins Operation First Novel in 2014 and subsequently, ACFW’s Carol award for debut novel 2016. The sequel novella, A Christmas to Remember, is set in 1908 Oklahoma. A second novella, A Christmas Measure of Love, is set in 1910 and is the prequel to Linda’s second full-length novel, which is set in 1914, Amazon best-selling The Mending of Lillian CathleenBook Two. The third novella, A Christmas Tale for Little Women, releases in 2020 and is set in 1912. It is a prequel to Book 3 in The Women of Rock Creek series, The Awakening of Miss Adelaide, which is set in 1918.

Linda and her beloved husband Al worship and minister at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio and dote on six grandchildren. Readers may contact Linda through her website,

When the Backstory Is Tragic


Family lore abounds in my family tree, much of it tragic. There’s the Boyd Irish crystal heiress who forsook her heritage for love in 1747 colonial America. The Billingsley American patriot hanged in his front yard by Tories in 1776. The Brooks great-grandfather who lost his three brothers in the Civil War and its aftermath. And the De Graffenried Swiss baron who brought a group from Switzerland to establish New Bern, North Carolina in 1711 and was captured by Indians.


Among the most tragic stories is how my grandmother, Ella Pyle Banks, buried 5 daughters and 2 husbands. Mama Ella and Papa Tribble’s story has waited years to be told. Part of it is the inspiration for my latest novella release, Soon the Dawn.


Ella Jane Pyle met William Tribble Banks in Indian Territory prior to Oklahoma statehood. They married in Elmore City in 1904 and welcomed seven girls over the next 18 years. Papa Tribble, a kind and sensitive one-armed man, farmed. And Mama Ella, known for her salt-of-the-earth character and neighborliness, was the one folks called on to tend their sick and prepare their loved ones’ bodies for burial. She possessed a will of iron, but her voice was whisper soft. I love the story about how Papa tried to kiss her while they were courting, and she responded with a slap. “No kiss from me until you’ve proposed.”


When I decided to write for publication, I knew I would create stories based on my family’s experiences. There are transatlantic stowaways, rejection by Quaker brethren, murder of a groom at his wedding reception, prisoners of war, deaths by lightning, fortunes won and lost, and more disease and death than I can imagine. With such drama hanging on the various branches, how could I not include these stories?


What’s an author to do with such tragedy?


Tragedy and loss are integral parts of life on fallen Earth, but triumph invariably attends each loss. Wellness follows disease. Light peeks through the darkness. Blessings attend tragedies. And life follows death. It’s the space between the two that intrigues me as a storyteller.


My task, then, in creating a story inspired by Papa Tribble and Mama Ella’s experiences was to find the colorful strands among the black, the shining light amid the darkness, and the blessings tucked into the folds of the woe.

Soon the Dawn contains dark and light strands and many colors between. But it’s the stitching—Jesus—who binds the strands together. He turns an ordinary morning into a hint of the “Sweet By & By.” As the delicate aroma of the Rose of Sharon, He scents the sultry stillness before a summer storm. And He wraps the bitterness of grief and failure in the richness of His incomparable grace.

I offer Soon the Dawn to Jesus as a tale that reaches beyond the ordinary to the extraordinary because of His grace.

Book:  Dream Again

Author: Anne Marie Bryan

Genre: Christian Fiction

Release date: August 20, 2020

One random day. One burst of laughter. One perfect moment. That’s all it takes for Gianna Barrett to capture Carter McIntosh’s attention—and his heart. His whole life has been a series of miracles, so this falls right in line. If only it were that simple. The object of his desire refuses to give him the time of day. Not deterred, Carter is sure he’s ready to put his heart on the line for love. Big mistake. He isn’t quite prepared and finds himself wrestling a soul-deep hurt into submission.

“There has been an accident….”

That devastating revelation shattered Gianna’s life, and in that one chaotic moment, everything she had was taken away. She has spent years carefully crafting her new normal, so there is no way Carter can just insert himself into her life. The fight is on but not for long. Their attraction is instant, and before she knows it, all her cynicism goes out the door.

When Gianna learns more about Carter’s life, she gets a better understanding of her beginning. As she starts her journey to healing, she uncovers Carter’s startling secret. In the days that follow, she struggles with feelings of regret, fueling her natural tendency to retreat. But the flames of desire burn hot and it’s not easy to break their unexpected connection. As the past reaches for them, they soon realize that to move forward, they must look back. Will they allow God to be the anchor they so desperately need—before it’s too late? For all they ever wanted was to be loved.

More from Ann Marie

I am super excited that you are a part of this amazing Dream Again tour. I use the words—emotional, inspirational, compelling, and romantic—to describe my writing style. I love to put readers in the heart of the story to give them a chance to think how they would react in similar situations.


It was therapeutic for me to write Dream Again. Last year, my mom passed, so it was a year of grieving and adjusting for me. While I was going through, I decided to write a story about someone who suffered the loss of a parent. I wrapped that experience into a beautiful love story, Dream Again, which gives hope while showing the awesome power of God in the lives of two hurting people.


I hope you will enjoy reading Dream Again as much as I have enjoyed writing it. In this novel, you will witness the incredible transformative power of love in the lives of Carter McIntosh and Gianna Barrett as they lift their faith and develop the courage and tenacity to leave the past behind. Dream Again is laced with love, faith, friendship, and a sense of community, while demonstrating God’s desire to free people from life-altering events. I pray that you will catch a glimpse of God moving through time to secure the future of those He loves.


Thank you for touring with me and for taking the time to read Dream Again. Stay victorious!
