Historical Christian Fiction Book List

Pin It Now!

  Historical Christian Fiction Book List 

 Books are my tv.

To take a break during the day or to unwind at night, I love traveling back in time by book to when women wore dresses instead of tank tops and characters rode in carriages instead of cars. Curling up with a lighthearted story is the perfect way to end the day and help my busy mind release the cares of the world. It's a nightly routine, actually, and I truly don't know what to do with myself when I run out of books!

 I hate to admit it, but in my highschool days, I started reading historical romance novels. Secular ones. :( Thankfully, I was still a teenager when I was introduced to my first Christian historical fiction romance novel. I don't even remember how I came across it, but I've never looked back.

The Book That Started It All

Frontier Lady (Lone Star Legacy Book 1) by Judith Pella is the book that forever changed the course of my pleasure reading. Even though I've read it more than once, I haven't read it recently enough to give a personal review. So, here's the excerpt from Amazon:
 She Learned Too Late On Her Wedding Night That She Had Escaped Nothing- Deborah Graham's escape from the ravages of the Civil War to the plains of Texas holds more than the promise of a new beginning. She is marrying a handsome young man who will inherit wealth and influence from his cattle-baron father. But the reverberations of a murderer's bullet echo far down the corridors of her life and change everything for Deborah. From the plains of Texas to the Indian Territories of Kansas, Deborah finds herself faced with all the beauty, savagery, and challenges of the Old West. And along the way a tiny seed of faith is planted and the characteristics that will become her distinctive mark strength, independence, honor and faith in a God who is bigger than the land ever noted for its awesome size will begin to develop.
I own the book above and its sequel, Stoner's Crossing (Lone Star Legacy, No. 2). Even though, I don't have a copy of the third book in the series, Warrior's Song (Lone Star Legacy, Book 3), I'm pretty sure I read it a long time ago. The 3-book set is available on Amazon:

My Personal Favorite

I've liked a lot of the Christian romance books I've read, but this series by L. A. Kelly stands out as one of my favorites:

  Tahn ( Book 1): A Novel The Scarlet Trefoil ( Book 2): A Novel Return to Alastair ( Book 3): A Novel


 Though I've read the series twice, it's been a while, so I will turn to Amazon once again for a description of the first book, Tahn.
In a dark, medieval land, good and evil battle it out. Trapped between his master's evil commands and his persistent conscience that tells him to do otherwise, Tahn Dorn finds himself in a twisting plot that threatens not only his life but also that of the lovely Netta. After kidnapping Netta from the comfort of her home and burning her castle to the ground, Tahn realizes he can't turn her over to Samis, his evil master, as was originally intended. But as Tahn launches a plan to outwit Samis, he realizes he must also face the evils within himself. Here, compelling characters deal with the real-life struggles of redemption and forgiveness. It's good versus evil in a way you've never experienced before.
I remember feeling a little sad when I wanted to learn more about the author and found out that she and her son had died in a car accident. :(
