Amanda Tero grew up attending a one room school with her eleven siblings—and loved it! She also fell in love with reading to the point her mom withheld her books to get her to do her chores. That love of reading turned into a love of writing YA fiction.

Amanda is a music teacher by day and a literary guide by night, creating stories that whisk readers off to new eras and introduce them to heroic but flawed characters that live out their faith in astonishing ways.

I like using a few images and putting them together (the eraser tool is fantastic!) to create one-of-a-kind covers.

I keep trying to figure out if I’d read this before. So many aspects of the story are familiar, yet several parts aren’t (my mom may have read it aloud and I only caught some parts).

“Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? They are of one accord by being tuned, not to each other, but to another standard to which each one must individually bow. So one hundred worshipers met together, each one looking away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than they could possibly be, were they to become 'unity' conscious and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship.”
A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God: The Human Thirst for the Divine

“No.” Elizabeth shook her head. Resolution seeped through her, as powerful as adrenaline. “No one can command my convictions. They are mine, given to me by God and meant for my life’s journey. You can destroy my possessions, but you cannot take what is in my heart.”
Alicia A. Willis, Grace Triumphant: A Tale of the Slave Trade

“Our God isn’t stingy with His grace, like we are sometimes.”
Alicia G. Ruggieri, All Our Empty Places

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

“Although my memory's fading, I remember two things very clearly: I am a great sinner and Christ is a great Savior.”
