Most Anticipated Novels of 2014

For Such a Time
A Place in His HeartMore correctly, of the authors/publishing companies who have put out the titles and dates of their new historical releases for this year (which really only extends through August, so there are still some authors who I hope will be putting out new releases this fall), but of those that are revealed, these are the ones that have me most excited (in order as to publishing date).

By three new authors I am excited to try:

The Pelican Bride
For Such a Time by Kate Breslin (Bethany House, April); a WWII novel about a young Jewish woman disguised as a German and working at a transit camp in Czechoslovakia

The Pelican Bride by Beth White (Revell, April); a colonial Louisiana mail-order bride story

A Place in His Heart by Rebecca DeMarino (Revell, June); a colonial romance about an Anglican and a Puritan

By authors I know and love:

Circle of SpiesThe Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn by Lori BentonCaught in the Middle

Circle of Spies by Roseanna M. White (Harvest House, April); third book of the Culper Ring trilogy (after Ring of Secrets and Whispers from the Shadows).  Thanks to NetGalley, I have already read this one, but I cannot own it until it is officially published.  It was excellent!
