INTRODUCING: Lillian Walsh, who has stepped out courageously beyond what she’d ever dreamed of being able to achieve and has started a children’s home for orphans.
WHAT HAPPENS: A white lie used to protect some orphans has resulted in an official complaint and a letter revoking permission to manage the little children’s home, and more children are on their way and are in need of caring homes. And unexpectedly, Walter, the young man who has won Lillian’s heart, departs for a job in the oil industry without leaving any hope for their future, making her confused and lonely. And when startling information about the past surfaces and a new arrival comes via suspicious circumstances, she’ll have to decide what is worth fighting for and what is better left in God’s hands.

The Canadian author, Janette Oke has sold more than 30 million books, and is the recipient of the ECPA President’s Award, the CBA Life Impact Award, the Gold Medallion, and the Christy Award.

Four of our favorite authors — Bill Myers, Frank Peretti, Angela Hunt and Alton Gansky — have teamed up and written a new supernatural thriller full of suspense, and the beginning of a new series! Invitation is cycle one of the Harbringers series and can be found on our shelves at F Mye.
When author Bill Myers was asked if he could explain the concept for this new [Harbringers] series, he answered:
“I (Bill Myers) originally came up with the idea: What if several authors wrote a series of linked novellas that would read like episodes of a TV series? From there, we decided to give each author a unique character. Each novella is from the first-person POV of one of the Harbinger team members as they stumble into supernatural adventures and investigations.”
–go HERE for more Q&A with Bill Myers
- In The Call by Bill Myers, four strangers are drawn together to help a student at the mysterious Institute for Advanced Psychic Studies. His gifts are supposedly being honed to assist world leaders … but there are some very disturbing strings attached.
- Frank Peretti’s The Haunted confronts a supernatural mystery, a case of murder, and an exploration into the darkness of the human heart, all centering around a mysterious house.
- In Angela Hunt’s The Sentinels, animals around the world are mysteriously dying. What could it mean? When the tragedy begins to touch Andi’s dreams, she discovers a terrifying theory.
- The Girl by Alton Gansky is a gripping tale of a young barefoot girl found holding a scroll in the snowy Oregon mountains. She is sweet, innocent — apparently not of this world — and something wants to kill her.
