But her love of music may cost her everything.

In 1880, seventeen-year-old Honora (Nora) Gallagher captivates Ireland’s attention when news of her father’s untimely and tragic death spreads across the countryside. According to her father’s will, Nora must now find and marry a suitor within a year if she is to inherit her family’s estate, Kings Castle, or be forced to hand it over to a distant and unfamiliar cousin. Distraught, Nora must now choose between following her dream of studying music in Dublin or saving her beloved home through a rushed marriage.

The combination of her father’s mysterious death, missing family money, and an abrupt end to the castle’s Fair Day program leads Nora to question the motives of people she once trusted. Nora quickly realizes there is only one solution to such a tangled mess: sacrifice.

Nora is forced to choose—will she remain loyal to her father and the servants who are counting on her or will she follow her heart and chase her dream? BUY NOW!

Powerful Novel Aims to Bring Attention to “Bullycide”

posted on

Author’s Real-Life Experience woven Through Caged Dove

For immediate release: Caged Dove was not written without tears, says author Andrea Rodgers. Although the idea for the story has been floating in her mind for two decades, Rodgers says it took time to gather the courage to revisit those painful memories from her past. “Bullying and suicidal thoughts were something I once dealt with and overcame,” she explains. “But I believe it’s also our duty to stand up for those who are currently going through similar situations.” Caged Dove (Ambassador International; October 2015; $13.99, paperback) follows the story of journalist Aniston Kline assigned to cover a tragic story that echoes her own past.

9781620205419While bullycide is a prominent theme in the novel, Rodgers continues her trademark style of writing about dark topics without being too dark, a skill seen with her first novel The 20th Christmas. Much of Caged Dove is a light-hearted love story. “If you ever had a high school crush than you can relate to the giddy and silly memories of the main characters,” says Rodgers. “School crushes were a bright light for me. I kept one high school journal so it was fun to read to get back into that mind-frame!”

Caged Dove begins with Psalm 55:6, “I said, ‘Oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.'” The verse fits the novel’s plot perfectly says Rodgers, whose faith was significantly strengthened during her own bullying experience. “It really helped to have the perspective that Jesus was bullied and therefore knew exactly what it was like and was on my side. Looking at what he’d endured, I had motivation to rise above my own situation,” says Andrea who spent a year as an atheist. “But once I realized he was with me every single minute at school—I wasn’t on my own, he was watching everything and would help me through it—life got amazingly better. I wore cross necklaces to school and, when the kids were mean, I’d hold on to the cross and feel Jesus standing beside me. He was not only my friend, but gave me the most strength I’d ever had.”

About the Author: Andrea Rodgers is a graduate of Iowa State University with a degree in journalism and mass communication. She worked in the television and radio industry prior to being a stay at home mom, but her life-long dream was to be an author. A few months after her oldest child started kindergarten, she wrote her first published novel, The 20th Christmas. Her second book, Caged Dove, follows one year later. Andrea lives near Des Moines with her husband, son, and daughter.

To receive a review copy of Caged Dove or to connect with the author please contact publicist Alison Storm by email at media@emeraldhouse.com.

Blog Tour: Grace in the Middle

posted on

Starting today and running through August 29, Ambassador International is hosting a blog tour of Wendy Duke’s new non-fiction book, Grace in the Middle: An Imperfect Journey to God’s Perfect Plan. Be sure to check back in throughout the week to see the reviews and inspiring thoughts some of our bloggers have written about this exciting new publication.

What is Grace in the Middle?

Grace in the MiddleSynopsis: “You are beautiful, little girl of mine,” Wendy Duke whispered over her newborn daughter. It was a still moment amidst the turmoil of birth defects and a life-threatening illness. Grace in the Middle is a memoir recounting one young couple’s struggle to hold on to an unraveling faith during the greatest crisis of their lives. Heartbreaking, triumphant, and funny in just the right places, this inspiring story is an authentic reflection on battling and overcoming physical illness and disability, resisting the dark doubts that plague us in the midst of tragedy, and trusting the faithfulness of God through the deep twists and turns of life.

We’ve asked some of our bloggers to read and review Duke’s story. Their posts will range from a basic review to a discussion about something about the Dukes’ imperfect journey that inspired them.

Perhaps you’ll recognize some of the names on our list!
