    Set in Victorian England, this gothic-influenced novel follows Shannon Aimee, a young peasant woman from Huguenot-influenced Scotland. She is entirely content with her rather simple life, but exciting news arrivesthe Earl of Northon, an English nobleman, seeks her hand in marriage. But the Earl appears to be anything but noble. His manor in Northern England, Gatehaven, has long been plagued by stories of the occult, mystical practices, and tales of intrigue. Fearing for her safety, Shannon's childhood sweetheart Ian Colquhoun, a young man with dreams of becoming a pastor, covertly escorts her to England. All appears well, and the innocent Shannon has few doubts that the Earl truly loves her. However, the Earl, and a mysterious Frenchman with unexpected ties to Shannon, have their own motives for seeking her out.
    Written in the same dark style as classic gothic novels like Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre, Gatehaven is a satisfying Christian book which fits perfectly into its Victorian background, bringing along a more readable 21st-century style of English. It preserves many of the themes, mysteries, and vile villains of traditional gothic literature while introducing strong Christian values and characters. While it does not replace the essence of classics like Wuthering Heights completely, this is both a viable contemporary Christian replacement for teaching gothic literature and a good gothic novel in its own right. ~ Stephen

    Do you have a writer in your home? Someone who always has a good story floating around in his head and is eager to "get it out?" Lee Roddy, author of more than 50 novels, has a passion for helping young writers move from that "wannabe" stage. Published by IEW, this does not follow the IEW pattern. It's more like participating in a one-on-one training session with the author. Writing directly and conversationally to the student, in each chapter Mr. Roddy first shares his insight and wisdom on the topic, then provides a checklist so the student can be sure of his understanding of the discussion. Then the student is invited to pick up her pen and do a bit of writing, applying the instruction. Chapters include characters, specific novel genres (i.e. suspense, romance, mystery, etc.), plot development, scenes, researching/interviewing, and marketing. Thorough to the end, Mr. Roddy even includes a section on recent changes in the book industry. Highschoolers will be able to work through this course on their own but will, undoubtedly, appreciate encouragement from the parent's corner. It could be used either as the composition portion of any year's English credit or as a special (i.e. senior?) project. 139 pgs, spiral-bound ~ Janice

      Is it possible to weave together 1940s England, King Arthur, mystery, adventure—and C.S. Lewis and Tolkien in an action-packed story? Indeed! David C. Downing, author of four award-winning books on C.S. Lewis, crafts this adventure. Tom and Laura aspire to solve a mystery and find treasure. Together they address issues of eternal consequences, involving Lewis and Tolkien in the process (Downing uses actual quotations and information from the authors’ writing). Notes in the back document primary sources used. 5 1/4x8”, 285 pp, sc. ~ Ruth
