Christian Fiction Favorites of 2015!

The historical novels were overwhelmingly my favorites this year (no surprise, as it is my preferred genre. But I mean they were exceptionally good this time.) September won for the most favorites in a single month: 4  of my top 10 historicals were published that month. For reasons why they were chosen, feel free to follow the links to my reviews of the books.

The Mistress of Tall Acre by Laura Frantz (Revell, September) - Colonial

And my favorite new-to-me reads that were not published this year included the charming novel by Lynn Austin A Proper Pursuit (2007), the moving Wings of a Dream (2012) by Anne Mateer, which spoke to my situation at the time, and an old classic The Blue Castle (1926) by Lucy Maude Montgomery (of Anne of Green Gables fame). How could I not have read these before?
