The Lady’s Mine

With nods to The Taming of the Shrew and the musical Oklahoma, this novel is more lighthearted than Rivers’s (The Masterpiece) typical epic sagas but still retains hallmarks such as compassion for the downtrodden and redemption for the sinner. Read-alikes include Joanne Bischof’s The Gold in These Hills and Tamera Alexander’s “Fountain Creek Chronicles.”

The Masterpiece

Rivers (Earth Psalms) is known for creating memorable characters whose brokenness serves as a pathway to redemption and finding faith in Jesus. This character-driven romance will enthrall her many fans.

Bridge to Haven

This is another compelling and moving story by one of the genre's most honored and talented writers. Abra is realistically crafted, and her story—based on Ezekiel 16—is poignant and bittersweet. Essential for Rivers's many fans. [See author Q&A above.

Leota's Garden

For inspirational fiction collections.

Her Daughter's Dream
