The Turning by Davis Bunn

Author Davis Bunn The Turning
The Turning by Davis Bunn

The Turning by Bestselling and Christy Award winning author Davis Bunn

A voice. A message. Five dissimilar people. Thirteen days of high-stakes spiritual warfare. A businessman with a speech impediment and a crucial report to give. 

A heavy black gal choir director summoned to apologize to her prodigal sister. A Sunday School teacher with a wasted nephew. A wayward Chinese American woman with a proud heritage who humbly makes peace with her father. 

A patchwork of characters with different backgrounds and motivations offer and accept apologies to make peace with the greatest source of conflicts in their lives. They bond to obey God’s call to restrain a rampantly exploding, diabolical lie. Against all earthly logic, a divine command, and an unforeseen meeting results in a challenge to the cultural direction of the nation and wages war against the most powerful and influential industry in North America.

A Husband For Christmas by Gail Gaymer Martin

A Husband for Christmas
When I considered starting a new series, I weighed ideas that caught my interest. Though I often write about small towns, I wanted to try something even more intimate and the idea of residence on the same street in a small town. 

I prefer using places I know, and though I had never been to Owosso, Michigan, which is a small town, I made arrangements to visit there and had the help of a wonderful woman who is responsible for the Chamber of Commerce and all of the events found in this amazing small town.

The two day visit I made in Owosso sealed my excitement about writing this story. I not only learned about the many interesting community events in town but also in the adjacent two of Corunna. The cities share many events and every season of the year brings back favorite activities for the community.
