Five Favorite Fiction Books for Mom

Over the last several months, as I have had time, I have been reading a series of books by author Lynn Austin. I began in the fall, during the same time that my husband and I were taking a bible study at our church that took us all the way through the old testament. I was blown away by God’s timing when I realized how closely this book series followed what we were learning in our study! Each week it seemed as if I would attend the study and the very next time I read the book at home, even if it had been a couple of weeks since picking it up, I would be covering the exact subject matter in the novel. I was constantly saying to my husband “Listen to this!” and “We just read about this at church tonight!”

There are 5 books in the series and they begin at the end of the reign of King Ahaz, going on to cover King Hezekiah’s reign and King Manasseh’s. I have only just begun book 5, but so far it is just as good as the others. I am listing the books below for easy access. I have really enjoyed reading them and for me, they helped me to remember what I was learning in our study even better since I was also reading an account at home. They are based on the bible stories, but are still fiction, so keep that in mind.

  1. Aren’t they great?! I loved them!

  2. Yes! I’m excited and sad all at the same time to be reading the last one. However, I saw that she has some other series (I have always especially loved series!), and think I’ll check some of those out soon, too.

  3. I love these books, and everything by Lynn Austin! Just finished Wings of Refuge and learned so much from that one as well. Couldn’t even begin to choose my favorite of her books though. Every one is great!

  4. I’m looking forward to reading some of her other books. These were the first I’ve read of hers and I think she’s great!
