Cover Reveal: Alicia A. Willis's GRACE TRIUMPHANT

Yes, I know! Some of you thought that I was revealing the cover of the sequel to The Fragrance of Geraniums!  Soon, friends, soon! :-)

For today, however, I'm participating in the cover reveal for fellow Christian historical fiction author Alicia A. Willis's Grace Triumphant, a novel about the British slave trade. Grace Triumphant has a planned release of November 2015, but for now, we can enjoy the gorgeous cover... and happily add it to our to-be-read piles. :-) 

So without further ado...

The Description:

Profligate London, 1788. Slave ships haunt the seas, bearing human cargos to further the wealth of the rich and destroy the souls of the slave traffickers. 

Russell Lawrence is an avid skeptic. Captain of the slave ship Barbados, wealthy, and a respected leader, he views religion as a crutch for the weak. But when the debauchery of the slave trade begins to destroy his good morals, his battle becomes more than fighting pirates and mutineers. What if there really is a God?

Impressed as a cabin boy, Jack Dunbar sees his forced service on the Barbados as a God-given opportunity to witness Christ to the crew. When his efforts to influence the hardened slavers seems to be doing little, running away seems his best option. But the punishment for desertion is harsh. And is returning to the life he once knew worth ruining the work he’s tried to do for the Lord?

Back in Grosvenor Square, Elizabeth Grey battles opposition from society and her self-seeking fiancée. Her work with John Newton to end the slave trade is being harshly attacked. She faces life branded as a jilter and radical if she stands up for what she believes in. Will she ever glean the strength to call sin by its rightful name?

A tale of adventure on the high seas, redemption, and faith. Sin abounds. Is grace enough to conquer doubt and triumph over evil?

Hoping that you are having a week in which you are continually reminded of God's grace to us in Jesus Christ, friends! :-) I'll see on Friday, Lord willin' and the crick don't rise.

Grace and peace,
