Book Excellence Awards chose Amora as a finalist for the best historical book of 2020, and New York City Book Awards selected Amora as the third best independent Historical Fiction published in 2020.

These awards demonstrate the universality of the book’s message and its cross genre appeal.“With all the anger in our world today, this book is a good read to inspire your soul.” –Kendra Campbell.“Amora is a superbly written and richly descriptive novel with brilliantly drawn characters and settings. The author weaves a well crafted historical fiction based on a true story that will captivate the reader’s attention from the start. Skillfully constructed, this well researched story will have you turning the pages from beginning to end. This for me was a phenomenal read…It has been a while since I enjoyed a book this much. It’s a first class historical fiction with perfect pacing. Highly recommended and a well deserved five stars from me.” –Piaras, an distinguished Vine Voice Reviewer.“Amora is without a doubt, the most emotional Historical Christian story I have ever read.” –Chick Lit Café“Amora is a very visual story rich in details that pulls you in and doesn’t let you go.” –Sandra GotlaufaThis multiple award winning historical novel “is based on the true story of the noblewoman who inspired Justin Martyr’s petition to the Roman Senate. The basic theme is forgiveness versus vengeance set in a sweeping action adventure tale of sacrifice that examines spirituality and faith and explores the path to healing as the characters struggle with their pains of loss, betrayal, and guilt.” –Wayne S. Walker“I was pleasantly surprised at not only how inspiring but also how captivating and exciting the storyline was; I could not put it down! It also gave me a better understanding of the Greco Roman world and a greater appreciation of what the early Christians had to endure and the sacrifices they made. The author did a beautiful job telling this story and incorporating so many different emotions: happiness, sadness, courage, fear, hate, and, most importantly, the power of love and forgiveness. I highly recommend this book; it will not disappoint!” –Toni PowellEXECUTIVE REVIEWS:“This is a powerful story that will, unquestionably, resonate with people of faith, but has enough universal appeal to find a home with crossover readers as well.”“The core concept of the novel feels like Christian forgiveness on a collision course with revenge.”“The ideas of vengeance and forgiveness as two sides of a coin is a really compelling underlying motif for this novel.”“I loved the inexorable pull of vengeance and betrayal pulling on all the characters. Knowing that the merciless hand of fate is moving towards Leo, creates the kind of delicious tension that drives stories in this genre.”“We watch these characters struggle in different ways but all of them find their way to the same place at the end. I liked seeing the tension throughout the book as these moments of fate and decision wound together.”“The novel does a great job zooming out for the big picture but also being able to really focus in on intimate human details and moments with these characters.”“The blending of several distinct and quite separate storylines come together very well and provide an emotionally satisfying end to the book.” #1 New Release for Ancient Historical Fiction September 10, 2020 #1 New Release for Christian Historical Fiction September 10, 2020

He has all but forgotten about the frozen embryos, but once Amelia reveals her discovery, he knows that if he ever wants to get a part of Greer back, he’ll need to accept his fate as a single father and find a surrogate. Each dealing with their own private griefs, Parker and Amelia slowly begin to find solace in one another as they navigate an uncertain future against the backdrop of the pristine waters of their childhood home, Cape Carolina.
