Read Lisa’s latest novels, parts 1 and 2 of The Gifted series:
the Medieval Church had the lost letters of Paul, holding them away from the populace because they expounded on spiritual gifts? What would happen if God brought together people with extraordinary spiritual gifts during the fourteenth century? How would they battle the twin dangers of evil and the Inquisition? How would their decisions, good and bad, help shape the future Body of Christ? And what if the people that did the greatest good in the battle had more subtle spiritual gifts than those they supported and followed?
The year is 1339 and God calls to his beloved until they rise from their slumber. Yet at the same time, Evil also walks the Earth, hunting God’s chosen ones. Can the Gifted rally together and avoid both the known dangers that hunt them as well as
those in the shadows? The future of the Christian Church, as well as humandkind, rests on their ability to rely on what God had laid in their hearts, minds and souls. Will they discover it in time?
Daria D’Angelo is an Italian aristocrat with a dangerous gift. She needs to help a secret group of people stay alive when the Church and the enemy all want them dead, serve her God with her gifts of healing, and although she longs for romantic love, keep her eyes on the Eternal. If she does not succeed, she, her friends, and their eternal purpose to radically transform the Christian Church—and the future of humanity—will all die.
And there’s more:
1) Both The Begotten and The Betrayed be featured in Target stores September 4th on the Breakout Books display.
2) A Reader’s Guide is included in the back of each book—making it a possible choice for a book group.
3) The Begotten was a finalist for this year’s Christy Award, one of three finalists for the Best Suspense of the Year award. It didn’t win (sniff, sniff), but it was an honor to rise to the top of 31 entries.
