Favorite Books JANE EYRE, WUTHERING HEIGHTS, and PRIDE & PREJUDICE rank at the top. REDEEMING LOVE and anything else by Francine Rivers. Also B.J. Hoff, Jamie Langston Turner, Ann Tatlock, and Allison Pittman, especially FOR TIME AND ETERNITY. I find Steven James's depiction of evil to be spellbinding. It causes me to stand in awe of the amazing grace of God. DiAnn Mills writes suspense I like. THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS by M.L. Stedman captivated me. And I find Lynn Austin and Liz Curtis Higgs's works both beautiful and heart-rending, as well as packed with wisdom. And then there's Jerry B. Jenkins who's in a category of his own. My favorite Jenkins novel: RIVEN.
