From Amazon bestselling author Lauren Faulkenberry.
Thirty-one-year old Enza has finally found love with sexy firefighter Jack, and through him, she has gained a family, years after her mother abandoned her. With her friend Kate in town, Enza’s looking forward to her first Christmas in Bayou Sabine, surrounded by those she cares about most.
But instead, the holiday brings disaster. One guest puts someone Enza loves in danger, and threatens her bond with Jack. Another guest brings news that makes Enza question the circumstances surrounding her mother’s disappearance and doubt everything she believed to be truth about her parents. Enza, fleeing Jack and the turmoil in Bayou Sabine, sets off with Kate on a road trip that could bring her solace—or might destroy everything she’s built.
Will she put to rest the mystery of her mother’s disappearance and find the strength to accept the truth? Can she return home in time to save everything that’s important to her and salvage her relationship with Jack?
“Bayou Whispers is a rich and emotional story that will draw readers into the heat of the bayou and leave them wanting more.” –Tina Ann Forkner, award-winning author of Waking Up Joy
Honor and conviction clash with loyalty and love in this epic Civil War novel that pits brother against brother. Winner of the coveted John Esten Cooke Award for Southern Fiction, Noble Cause chronicles the clash of a Confederate cavalry officer with a Union spy as they defend their beliefs, their country, and their honor.
Called “a riveting piece of historical fiction” by the Midwest Book Review and often compared to Gone with the Wind, Noble Cause takes readers across the rolling hills of Virginia in a page-turning tale of courage and love.
Gallantry and chivalry are put to the test when Colonel Alexander Hunter discovers the woman he promised his dying brother he would protect is the Union spy he has vowed to his men he would destroy.
With its unique blend of romantic and historical fiction, Noble Cause tells a deeply personal and poignant tale that, according to one reviewer “transcends the pages to settle in the very marrow of the reader’s bones.”
Praised by both men and women, and suitable for teens, this novel captivates and enthralls by telling a classic tale of courage, sacrifice and enduring love.
Originally published as Shades of Gray, Noble Cause is the winner of multiple national literary awards.
