Lilacs for Juliana, by Carrie Fancett Pagels, Releases Today!

Lilacs for Juliana (Hearts Overcoming Press, August 15, 2015) by Carrie Fancett Pagels
Lilacs for Juliana is now available on Amazon in Kindle format! Releases in paperback within a month! This is a short novel-length Christian Historical Romance, the third book in The Christy Lumber Camp Series!

Thank you to my critique partner, Debbie Lynne Costello, for her hard work and for the following endorsement:

Charming, romantic, and vivid details. This author packs a whole lot into her novella and leaves you with a sigh.

Lilacs for Juliana takes you to the Lumbercamps of Michigan. Carrie Fancett Pagels did a beautiful job taking you back in time when lumbering in Michigan was a way of life for many. You feel you’re right there with her characters as she has flushed each one out and leaves you with a three dimensional person that you can easily fall in love with. Ms. Pagels puts so much into her novella that you walk away with the satisfaction of reading a full length book.


Follow the story of the librarian, Juliana Beauchamps who sets her sights on Richard Christy a local lumberjack and root for her as she battles to keep her job when a library board member resents having a female librarian and seeks to get her fired.


GIVEAWAY: We're giving away several copies of Carrie's new release, Book 3 in The Christy Lumber Camp Series, Lilacs for Juliana, this week on the Overcoming with God blog. To enter for this post's giveaway, please leave a comment or prayer for Carrie. Blessings to you!

    1. Angel Bonnie, TY! I started writing this right after you left VA and I was just recovering from surgery but God gave me strength to see you and then to start writing! Supernatural ability beyond my own that was for sure. I did like 15,000 words or more in 5 days!

    1. Thanks so much, Lientjie! It is so neat to realize I have another reader across the water! I love libraries, too, but with my feet being so messed up the past five years I've only recently been able to walk all right again. So most of my reading material has had to be purchased. Blessings!
