Jill Stengl's New Release "Until That Distant Day"



Paris, 1792
Colette and her brother Pascoe are two sides of the same coin, dependent upon one another in the tumultuous world of the new Republic. Together they labor with other leaders of the sans-culottes to ensure freedom for all the downtrodden men and women of France.

But then the popular uprisings turn bloody and the rhetoric proves false. Suddenly, Colette finds herself at odds with Pascoe and struggling to unite her fractured family against the lure of violence. Charged with protecting an innocent young woman and desperately afraid of losing one of her beloved brothers, Colette doesn’t know where to turn or whom to trust as the bloodshed creeps ever closer to home.
Until that distant day when peace returns to France, can she find the strength to defend her loved ones . . . even from one another?

  7. Jill, I tried to respond to this the other day from my phone - not sure what I do wrong, maybe it has to do with big fingertips overwhelming the 'Publish' button :) BUT, now I can say congratulations for your daughter winning the Christy Award! The story line of UNTIL THAT DISTANT DAY sounds so good, and this is the way I love to learn about history, through historical novels from terrific writers who've done great research! I'll have to get this book. Don't you love your heroine's photo on the cover? Beautiful! And thanks to you Carrie for bringing this to our attention! Hugs and blessings from Texas!

    1. Well that's strange--I just wrote a reply to you and hit "Publish" and it vanished!
      Well, I will write it again and hope it survives this time.
      Thank you so much, Caryl, for the congrats on Anne Elisabeth's Christy win! I am so very proud of my girl--she writes beautiful fantasy that packs a powerful message of God's grace.
      And I'm like you--I learn history best through story, either reading it or writing it. I really enjoy the research, to be honest. And I do love my cover! Best one I've ever had, far and away.
      Hugs and blessings right back to you! :-)

    1. Thank you, Noela. It is quite different from anything I have written before--far more character-focused. I learned so much history while researching for this! Really want to go back to Paris now. :-D

    1. Hi Caryl!
      A good story has drama, and what could be more drama than a revolution? :-) Actually, I can't remember what first attracted me to this era. I wrote a novella set during the Revolution (published in a Barbour collection) many years ago, but that short form did not allow for the story I had wished to tell. So when the rights reverted to me, I tried to grow it into a bigger book--but ended up writing a different story altogether!

    1. Thanks so much, Bonnie. :-) I find that historical novels pique my interest and make me study into what really happened--and sometimes it is more fascinating than fiction! I love bringing the past to life through story.
