Faith and Fiction Saturday: Ten Christian Fiction Books I'm Anticipating

Happy New Year, Everyone! Welcome to another year of Faith and Fiction Saturday, a weekly discussion of the intersection between faith and fiction. I hope to start posting the month's worth of topics in advance, but this week is an exception, I'll be on the ball by next week. Not every week will have an interactive component, but some will so I hope you will participate!

To kick the new year off, I thought we'd head back to our roots and chat up the books coming out specifically in the Christian fiction marketplace that we're looking forward to. I'd love it if you decide to share a list on your blog, or you can share in comments. It's up to you!

Paradise Valley
Paradise Valley by Dale Cramer (Bethany House, January)
Levi's Will was in no way, shape, or form you typical Amish novel so I have high hopes for this latest book set in Amish Country by Dale Cramer. Fingers crossed it's in the mail that was held for me over Christmas that I finally get to see next week!

A Heart Most Worthy
A Heart Most Worthy by Siri Mitchell (Bethany House, March)
This needs no explanation, it's Siri Mitchell! I love everything she writes!

The Air We Breathe
The Air We Breathe by Christa Parrish (Bethany House, ?)
Christa Parrish may well be one of the most beautiful writers in Christian fiction, and she's definitely earned the, "read her books as soon as I can" spot in my life. Due to some stuff going on in her personal life, this book has been delayed a few times making the anticipation all the sweeter. I don't know if it's been delayed again, but hopefully not!

Bolton Hill
The Lady of Bolton Hill by Elizabeth Camden (Bethany House, June)
I've already expressed my interest in this book, and then having a chance to interview Elizabeth Camden made me even more excited for it. I can't remember the last time I was so excited for a Christian fiction debut!

Dancing on Glass
Dancing on Glass by Pamela Binnings Ewen (B&H, August)
I loved The Moon in the Mango Tree so much. I've been eagerly awaiting this book and recently Pamela told me it's the first in a trilogy! I'm so excited to read it and I'm not above begging for an ARC. Ahem.

The Daughter's Walk
The Daughter's Walk by Jane Kirkpatrick (WaterBrook Press, April)
Jane Kirkpatrick is an excellent writer of historical fiction and this book is based on true events which is very appealing to me. I suspect this will be an excellent read.

When Sparrows Fall by Meg Moseley (Multnomah, May 2011)
I think this might be another debut but check the title...very similar to one of my favorite books from 2010, so I think that the themes will be as well. It looks pretty good anyway!

And without covers...I'm also looking forward to:
A Lasting Impression by Tamera Alexander (Bethany House)
Forbidden by Ted Dekker and Tosca Lee (Center Street, September?)
A Heart Revealed by Julie Lessman (Revell, ?)

What Christian fiction books are you looking forward to?

(tomorrow I'll share the general market books I'm looking forward to!)
