Monday, September 06, 2010 (03:46:19)
This year has been very active for our Seal of Approval. The following books have been given this award so far this year. Congratulations to our SOA recipients!|
Through the Open Window
SOA Awarded 1/30/10
Author: Anne Faye
Release date: October 21, 2009
Synopsis: Lucy Lyons is a woman trying to escape her past. Content to work as a librarian and live alone with her dog, all she wants is a simple life with no complications. When she decides to take the plunge and begins to write a novel during National Novel Writing Month, she gets much more than she bargained for. Her writing will not only force her to face her own secrets, but will also put her in the path of a handsome artist who shares her love of the written word. "Through the Open Window" is an engaging novel about the secrets we keep and the hope for second chances.
SOA Awarded 2/19/10
Author: Gerard D. Webster
Publisher: Outskirts Press, Inc.
Original release date: 30 November 2008 - re-released early January 2009 after some additional revisions.
Synopsis: In-Sight is a modern prodigal son story set in Jacksonville, FL about a young man, Ward McNulty, who has abandoned his Catholic family values to pursue success as a political columnist. To all appearances, he's gained it--along with the affections of a TV anchorwoman and connections with rich and powerful friends. But when a group of investors convince him to back the conversion of a sleepy island town into a resort, it pits Ward against his father--a resident of the island--in a bitter eminent domain battle. Ward balks when he learns that the financial backers are not all they seem. And they'll stop at nothing--including ruining his career and murder--to get what they want. When all his former "friends" abandon him, he turns to the only man who'll stand by his side--his father. In the ensuing conflict, Ward learns the secret of his father's uncanny insight and the true meaning of sacrificial love.
Murder in the Vatican: The Church Mysteries of Sherlock Holmes
SOA Awarded 6/26/10
Author: Ann Lewis
Publisher: Wessex Press
Release date: August 2010
Synopsis: A sudden death in the Vatican. An international incident over stolen artifacts. A priest’s wrongful imprisonment for murder. In this collection of three as yet untold tales, hinted at in the original Holmes stories, the voices of Dr. John H. Watson and the legendary Pope Leo XIII reveal how the great Sherlock Holmes brought these grim ecclesial cases to startling and poignant conclusions.

Guide our minds, our hearts, our hands,
as we write, speak, illustrate –
help our words to live in union with the Word.
Teach us discipline and skill
to use the talents God gives us.
Give us also insight and courage
to convey God's love through our craft,
and humility to be open
to His divine will, shaping our lives,
in loving loyalty to His Church.
In Christ's name,
