2021 Morning Veil Cover 1.jpg

Kyle Bolton is one of St. Ninian's Sanctuary pilots, bringing guests to and from the southern island Christian retreat center, and until a few weeks ago, he loved his job. But lately, nothing in his life feels right. The charming pilot has no enthusiasm for anything and fears he will have to leave the island, even though he has no place to go.

Megan Gallagher is a US student studying abroad and working as a barista, and Kyle's stories of his island haunt her. When he offers to sneak her onto the island, thinking he's rescuing her from a bad relationship, she leaves everything she's known to see this place that haunts her with its beauty.

Neither of them knows God has set them on a path of adventure, discovery, and new beginnings, that He wants them to know Him and get to know one another as the next leg of their life journey begins.

Morning Veil is a stand-alone novel from the St. Ninian's Sanctuary series, Christian romance on a mysterious island retreat center.

Reeling from the death of his best friend—and struggling with the dark secret his dying friend made him promise to hide—True Fischer plans to spend the summer before senior year helping his dad run his apartment complex and hiding in his uncle’s woodworking shop. He isn’t sure he wants to deal with people and friendships ever again.

 

Then Jemma Kenton appears on the scene. Smart and yet clueless, Jemma graduated a year early and is staying at the apartment complex while tackling a freshman project at the local college. In her normally tactless way, she finds herself stomping around in True’s issues and soon uncovers the secrets he hides.

 

Introducing these two doesn’t seem like one of God’s better plans, but if Jemma can dig deep to find her well of compassion, and True will accept the hand reaching down to pull him from the darkness, the pair might find this summer to be the most healing, satisfying event of their lives.

 

 In this Christian new adult romance with a little coming of age thrown in, fall in love with True, Jemma, and their friends for a summer of rescues, adventures, and healing.

 

Holding True is a mashup of characters from Jill’s two main series about growing up and stepping into the world, Terry’s Garden and the Boys of Summer/Girls Aglow/Casa Flanigan series (three series in the same universe). It’s a great introduction to all four series as well as a peek into the future of some of the most beloved characters from other series, as True and Jemma are children of characters in series past. Teen fiction/new adult fiction for Christian teens and the young at heart.

Walk the most dangerous path in Balia…

 

Meandering around a volcanic ridge, through jungle lowlands, and over salt flats, Dusk Lane is a route only the most desperate travelers find, and without strong guides nobody can survive the path through the beautiful and dangerous interior of Chimelu. Rika is one such guide, but this group of travelers might prove to be more than he can handle, for each has suffered great loss.

 

Young Aaden has lost his music; beautiful Suri has lost her voice; bold Annora has lost her future, and all three hope something on the path can restore them.  Rika finds he has lost his detachment, and as he sinks more deeply into the lives of his travelers, he realizes this trek down the Lane may change his entire life.  Of course, they’re traveling in the rainy season when the path is most dangerous, so there’s a good chance they won’t survive to change at all.

 

Take another trek into the world of Balia in this installment of the Tales of Balia, the fantasy series about a rich land not so different from our own and the god who wanders it looking to save lost people and bring them home.

Dusk Lane

I should have known, when I was eight and had triplet sisters, a crazy old neighbor in a big, spooky house, and a wild red-haired girl as a best friend, that my childhood might be less than normal.

 

It started with Bud, the old man next door. He introduced me to gardening, showed me how to be a gentleman, and talked about God. Then came Molly, the girl. Yes, say it with emphasis: The Girl. She brought me to life, called forth my inner hero, and occasionally crushed my soul. Nobody in the world could mess with my heart like Molly.

 

And family, the final prong of my adolescence. Sisters and more sisters. A birth injury that made my mother—and everyone else—keep a distance, and a whole lot of angst. They drove me to garden during most daylight hours, because dirt and plants were quiet and calm, and nothing else around me was either.

 

Time passed. I didn’t realize I’d become the glue in my relationships, the knight to slay everyone’s dragons, and the sounding board for their problems. I only knew I was the one person they forgot to see when they went through hardships. When they went down, I dragged them back to the surface. If I went down, I figured nobody would notice.

 

I sure never suspected that, if I went down, I could take the whole lot of them with me.

 

Terry’s Garden, stories about a huge family, an enchanting garden, and a love story that touches generations. Christian coming-of-age/romance novels for teens and anyone who remembers what it’s like to take those first wobbling steps into adulthood.
