Faith'in Fiction Saturday May 9, 2009

Amy at http://www.myfriendamysblog.com/ host Faith'n Fiction Saturdays. Visit her blog to particpate or read the other particpants recommendations.

Today's Topic

It doesn't take long hanging around people who read Christian fiction before the usual names come up. Janette Oke. Francine Rivers. Karen Kingsbury. Dee Henderson. Ted Dekker. Frank Peretti. These are the best-sellers...the authors everyone knows. But there are so many authors who get less coverage but have huge amounts of talent. Today, choose either an author you think deserves a wider readership or a book you wish more people had read and share about them on your blog! Because as you all know, we need to add to our TBR (to be read) lists!
My Answer:
I love Elizabeth White. She lives in Alabama and writes books set mainly in the South. She writes both contempary and historical Christian Fiction. My favorite book of hers is Off the Record. It is one of her contempary books. It is the first book in a loosely related series. The second is Controlling Interest which was good but the first was the best. I look forward to reading book three Tour de Force. Her website is http://elizabethwhite.net/ and it has a list of her books.
Here is the link to my review of Off the Record.

She's new to me. Though I think I have heard her name bantered about. I'll have to look her books up.
