Light at the Edge of Darkness - a review
Immerse yourself in a collection of Christian Speculative Fiction that you will never forget. LIGHT AT THE EDGE OF DARKNESS, edited and compiled by Cynthia MacKinnon is nothing short of a gathering of the masters. In some tales the events are so graphic you may want to keep this away from young children. In others the events may seem silly or filled with so much love it can hardly be contained. If you've never read speculative fiction before you need to treat yourself to this collection of wonders. In fact, even if you have read speculative fiction this book belongs on your shelf as well. I make the following challenge. I dare you to read this book and come away feeling that Christians are somehow weaker, less intelligent, more timid or unimaginative. Go ahead. Read this book. I dare you. I dare you to find Christianity so marvelously described as here, other than the Bible. I dare you to read LIGHT AT THE EDGE OF DARKNESS and not come away with a special appreciation for the writers, their stories, Christianity and what it means to be a true follower of Christ. - David Brollier; author of THE 3RD COVENANT

Tangerine is the third book in the Shades of Style Novels.
Fans of Pink and Jade will eat up Tangerine, the third book in the cutting-edge Shades of Style series. Jean Guerra, a designer at Garments of Praise design firm, doesn't like surprises. These days though, the unexpected meets her everywhere. Since Jean's return to the church a year ago, her God-encounters occur with increasing frequency, along with thoughts of her husband-the one she vowed to divorce and gave up on long ago. The one nobody at work knows about, not even her best friend, Lily, or her boss, Chenille. But when the designer assigned to work with Jean on a line of men's suits shows up, her heart flips. It's her husband, Nigel Salvador. Jean is finally rendered speechless. Can her bruised heart become whole enough to love again? Or will she remain in the trenches of loneliness forever?
