Chasing Francis: A Pilgrim's Tale

Chasing Francis is the peripatetic story of Chase Falson, a minister whose strong faith in a comprehensible God is shredded by a tragedy within the mega-church his sweat, words and tears built.

Salt: A Story of Friendship in a Time of War

It’s a warm summer in 1812 as our story opens in the wooded environs of Fort Wayne, Territorial Indiana.  Our story alternates between James, the American and Anikwa, the Miami Indian, their friendship founded on the like interests of two young men living on the edge of the new American civilization, more familiar with the woods that surround them than with the brewing war between the new American nation and the British Empire and their Native American allies that inevitably reaches their wooded outpost.  Helen Frost presents a riveting story where tensions slowly build between these soon-t
