What surprises I would find there! But even with my shelves I’m surrounded by special, sweet, surprises every day… (read more by following the links)

September Historical Fiction Edition
Welcome to September’s Historical Edition! We hope you enjoy!Visit the #BecauseFiction Website

From Marguerite Martin Gray –Last month, I shared about the birth of my first novel, Hold Me Close. It will always hold a special place in my heart, returning me to a whirlwind of newness. But the process must continue. I have more to explore with an unfinished journey. Enters Book Two,  Surround Me. The original title hovered as Let Your Love Surround Me. A bit wordy for this series so I shortened it. As I mapped out the series, I latched on to the thread of God as the center of each life, wrapping Himself in the struggles, joys, cares of His people. The titles have dual meanings. With Hold Me Close, the title depicts a desire for God to hold the characters in His arms of love and protection and a desire for the characters to live with human love and relationships. In Surround Me through the struggles and decisions of the pending battles, the protagonists need to let God’s purpose and love surround and penetrate their lives as well as allowing physical and emotional love of family sustain them. The back-cover text of Surround Me gives input to the continuing saga of a family and friends thriving in tumultuous circumstances: Read More and Enter Giveaway
