Salem Ridge Press is a publisher that reprints historical fiction from the late 1800s and the early 1900s. We’ve recently finished reading Leofwine the Monk, a tale of a young man who desires the peace and reflection of a monastery so that he can grow closer to God. The disruptions in the church lead to emotional turmoil for Leofwine, eventually sending him on a quest as far as the Middle East before he can regain his inner peace and find the wholeness of his faith.

When teaching American history to students today, it’s easy for us to forget that so many of the stories, even legends, of days gone by were told with the specific intent of building character, encouraging hard work, and through these things, Inspiring the American Dream. Kathleen and Robert Basmadjian have claimed that goal for themselves; seeking to share a dedication to hard work, creative endeavor, and tenacity, they penned the book Abraham’s Journey, in an effort to revitalize the values at the center of the American mindset.

As a homeschool mom with three Boy Scouts, I’ve often looked at looked at the list of merit badges and thought, “Hmmm… that would make a dandy curriculum…” but never taken the time to actually USE it as such. The boys are generally so busy working on advancement, service projects, and so many camping activities that we have to work to find time for non-essential (not Eagle-required) badges, unless it’s something the troop as a whole is doing.

It’s pretty rare that all four of my kids demand the next installment in a book series. Until now, those few titles have been the sort that movies are being from, with wizards or wimps or such.
A brand-new author broke the mold. Her name is Hope Auer, and she’s achieved the seemingly impossible; in A Cry From Egypt, she’s written historically (and Biblically) accurate Christian fiction that leaps off the page and captivates the imagination as well as any secular tale.
