This is Susan and I read a bunch of Christian fiction in 2011. Here are four of my favorites from the past year, which I downloaded when offered free or received from publishers.
Sixteen Brides, as you can imagine, has quite a cast of characters but they each had such distinct traits, it was easy to keep them straight. This is a humorous story with a bit of romance and a strong sense of sisterhood and surviving on the Nebraska prairie. It was delightful to read and is priced at $8.99. Book Description: Sixteen Civil War widows living in St. Louis respond to a series of meetings conducted by a land speculator who lures them west by promising “prime homesteads” in a “booming community.” Unbeknownst to them, the speculator’s true motive is to find an excuse to bring women to the fledging community of Plum Grove, Nebraska, in hopes they will accept marriage proposals shortly after their arrival!

O Little Town was written by Don Reid, lead singer of the Statler Brothers and is loosely based on their hometown in Virginia. The small-town atmosphere where everyone knows everyone’s business and Christmas is in the air made it feel like visiting home. The book is available for $9.99.
A new teacher arrives at the one-room schoolhouse in Nebraska and you know romance is about to break out. Courting Miss Amsel is just what you’d expect, with a few twists of the unexpected. This book is selling today for $8.99.
Imaginary Jesus is bit of a different story. The author is hanging out at the coffee shop with Jesus, when the Apostle Peter walks in and tells him that’s not the real Jesus. They go on a journey together, confronting counterfeits – like Magic 8 Ball Jesus. It’s an entertaining look at some deep theology. The book is available for $9.39.
