Linda Thompson stepped back from a corporate career that spanned continents to write what she loves–stories of unstoppable faith. Her debut novel, The Plum Blooms in Winter, is an A.C.F.W. Genesis award winner. Linda writes from the sun-drenched Arizona desert, where she lives with her husband, a third-generation airline pilot who doubles as her Chief Military Research Officer, two mostly-grown-up kids, and a small platoon of housecats. When Linda isn't writing, you'll find her rollerblading–yes, that makes her a throwback–taking in a majestic desert moonrise, or dreaming of an upcoming trip. Next up: Israel, then Wales.

"This is not a book I typically read-- WWII fiction.

I would like to say thank you to the publisher of this book. From what I can tell, this was published by a smaller press and it has me wondering if larger CF publishers took a pass on it-- if they..." Read more of this review »

""Beauty that thrives in adversity is of inestimable value."

What a heart-rending story, from beginning to end. It's a historical novel based on "Doolittle's lost crews" after the 1942 raid on Japan. Chapters shift back and fourth, between what happ..." Read more of this review »

“But I will not tell you how long or short the way will be; only that it lies across a river. But do not fear that, for I am the great Bridge Builder.”

Jon Acuff
“God found Gideon in a hole.

He found Joseph in a prison.

He found Daniel in a lion’s den.

He has a curious habit of showing up in the midst of trouble, not the absence. Where the world sees failure, God sees future.

Next time you feel unqualified to be used by God remember this, he tends to recruit from the pit, not the pedestal.”
