The Moses Conspiracy & Blogoversary Giveaway

Congratulations to Susan J. Reinhardt! Her novel, The Moses Conspiracy has made its debut! Susan will join us in the coming weeks for an interview, but I couldn't resist sharing the good news. :)



Here's the summary of this long awaited book: 

A trip to post-terrorized Washington, D.C. in 2025 and a buggy accident in Bird-in-Hand, PA set in motion events that expose a diabolical plan to destroy the Christian community. Ellie and John Zimmerman find themselves embroiled in a life-threatening investigation, fighting a shadowy enemy.

Convinced it's now safe to visit D.C., Ellie and her firstborn, 8-year-old Peter, travel to the nation's capital. Both mother and child make an effort to enjoy the sights, but they're unprepared for the challenges they face. Her nightmares come true when she and Peter are separated.

Back home, John witnesses a neighbor's buggy accident. The suspicious circumstances and law enforcement's refusal to take them seriously prompt him to take on the role of detective. He and a tenacious reporter band together and vow to find out what's happening in Bird-in-Hand.

Extended family squabbles erupt when John's sister, Annaliese, faces off with Ellie for blowing her D.C. experiences out of proportion. She'd rather ignore the warnings than deal with the growing danger.

John and Ellie can't decide whether her trip and his involvement with the accident were such a good idea. People are getting hurt, and their own family receives ominous warnings. Turning back the clock is not an option, but going forward could initiate more violence.

The small community is shattered when the unthinkable occurs. Will family, friends, and neighbors band together or allow fear to prevent them from taking action? Caught between strained family relationships and a faceless enemy, the couple rely on God for wisdom and protection. Little do they know that He's working on their behalf each step of the way. The scabs of a past tragedy get ripped open, and the truth of their second child's death is revealed. While they may expose the culprits, will they survive the heartache it brings?


  
Sounds like a winner, doesn't it? I've read a bit, but am looking forward to reading the entire book. I am SO excited for Susan. It's been a long and interesting adventure, and her persistence paid off.

  17. Hi Karen - One of the folks on my Facebook page wanted to know what a "GFC Follower" is. LOL! I've been trying to figure that out myself.

    Happy Blogoversary! You sure know how to throw a party, my friend.

    Hi Everyone - Thanks for your congrats! I'm enjoying my visit here and the kindness everyone has shown.

  18. Hi Susan,
    GFC stands for Google Friend Connect follower - in other words, a regular follower under followers at the upper right column under my profile. My apologies - I've seen that term tossed around and assumed everyone knew. But I was wrong, so sorry! :-)
    Blessings,
    Karen

  41. I wanted to get by here the other day. One of our horses went down with the colic. He has had a rough time all week. He's been off food except a little grass. I hope he's getting better. I do love him so much and he's 23. So I worry about him.

    WOWOW! Susan, this book looks wonderful! The kind of story all authors wish they'd written. I know I didn't make it in time for the drawing, but rest assured, I'll buy it next month. I LOVE books like this.

    Amigo, thanks for featuring Susan's book. I cannot wait to read it. xoxoxoxoxo

  42. I'm writing to congratulate Susan on her new book! I have already purchased it, so please do not enter my name in the drawing. I am just so excited to see this work of Susan's heart finally published and rejoice with her at God's faithfulness. Glory to His Holy Name!

    Blessings on you, Susan, and on your book!
