His Love Endures Forever has a long and interesting history. It was originally titled Ancient Words until the Lord made a series out of the idea. It’s been exciting to venture out with the Lord and write the series. The changes to the series lineup have been amazing to watch as they unfolded. The Lord has changed me quite a bit too. You can read more about the novel’s history and my own struggles as I chose to follow God’s plans in previous posts.
I’m so proud to present this lovely cover. The pictures were taken at the Valley Home Farm in Wartrace, Tennessee. Tiffany Hutchings graces the cover as my lovable, but shy, Allie Redman.
Now that the gang’s all here, let’s take a look at them side by side and then we’ll look at some details and projected release dates separately.
Here’s a quick look at the individual novels:

Novel’s theme: Salvation
Blurb: War is on the horizon during the spring of 1861. It will be an event that will change the lives of everyone in its path. The Harper family included. Frank Harper is a young man full of dreams and ambitions. Even when the country is split and war breaks out, Frank will do whatever is necessary to see his dreams come true, even when that means putting on a uniform and leaving home. For the first time, Claire Harper is forced to consider the reasons behind such a conflict. Should slavery be abolished? Which side should she be on, and what does God have to say about this? Claire is torn between her own opinions and those of her family. The struggle within her only increases when she repeatedly runs into a kind and handsome Union soldier. She longs to see her brother turn to Christ before it is too late. Desperate to reach her brother with the gospel, Claire pens a series of inspiring letters. Will she be able to handle all the obstacles of war and continue to be a witness to those around her? How long can Claire last when her heart is torn in half and she is burdened for her brother’s soul? How long can Frank resist his sister’s urgent pleas or the gentle tugging from within? Can a man really outrun a holy God?

Novel’s theme: Fear
Blurb: Devastation sweeps across the land, and the families of Maple Grove cannot escape when war arrives at their front doors. After her father entrusts her with a new and dangerous task, Sally Chandler must find the courage to obey despite her fear. Meanwhile, her best friend, Claire Harper, is determined to serve others, even if it means putting herself in danger. But with a certain handsome Union soldier stationed nearby, Claire finds her heart in danger of falling for the enemy. Their differing loyalties create complications that neither could expect; her twin brother fighting for the Confederacy is only one of them. Frank Harper left home with one goal in mind – to become a prosperous plantation owner. Two years later, not only is he further from his goal, but he’s beginning to question his own desires–something that becomes more complicated when his heart becomes involved. The families of Maple Grove must learn how to survive the uncertainty of war and a country split in two. While the war in the nation rages on, the battle within grows stronger. Will they learn that the only safe place to hide is in the shadow of Thy Wings?
