5 Gold Stars from RT Reviews

“The romantic tension sizzles nearly from the beginning, and readers will often find themselves breathless from the sheer delight of it. The message of redemption is conveyed with such poignant elegance that it will linger long after turning the last page.”

-Carrie Townsend, RT Book Reviewer

 

This Christian historical romance is so well imagined, you’ll have a hard time believing it’s fiction and not fact!

Love can’t rewrite the pages of one’s past, but it can cover a multitude of sins a page at a time.

In 1953, desperation forces young war widow Eliza Saunderson to take a job writing the memoir of ex-Hollywood heartthrob Johnny Devine. Rumor has it Johnny can seduce anything in a skirt quicker than he can hail a cab. But now the notorious womanizer claims he’s been born again. Eliza soon finds herself falling for the humble, grace-filled man John has become—a man who shows no sign of returning her feelings. No sign, that is, until she discovers something John never meant for her to see.

When Eliza’s articles on minority oppression land her on McCarthy’s Communist hit list, John and Eliza become entangled in an investigation that threatens both his book and her future. To clear her name, Eliza must solve a family mystery. Plus, she needs to convince John that real love—not the Hollywood illusion—can forgive a sordid past. Just when the hope of love becomes reality, a troubling discovery confirms Eliza’s worst fears. Like the happy façade many Americans cling to, had it all been empty lies? Is there a love she can truly believe in?

The Memoir of Johnny Devine is a dramatic story within a story of a bad boy and a good girl, both in need of reform. It’s a powerful tale of love, redemption, intrigue, and the miracle of God’s deliberate grace.

 When she finally surrenders her heart, will it be too late?

But now, she faces a dwindling staff, foreclosure, and old heartaches that won’t stay buried. Her only hope lies with the last person she’d ever turn to—a brawny handyman with a guitar, a questionable past, and a God he keeps calling Father.

Like a Love Song is a romantic drama about a fiercely loyal woman and some castaway kids who need the courage to believe in a love that never fails.

 

Like a Love Song received a glowing “Top Pick”  4 1/2 star review from Romantic Times!

“Eide writes a touching story about two unlikely heroes who sacrifice themselves to love those who are not loved by others. Sue is a haunted character whose past has an unforgiving grip on her. Joe finds himself once again facing the lies of his past that left him desperate and alone. Readers will genuinely love both of these characters and be heartbroken at what they go through. This emotional book touches on very tender subjects in a tactful, graceful way that allows readers to understand what is happening without being overwhelmed by it. Eide is a phenomenal writer who once again displays her wisdom in the way she tells the story.”

~Sarah Frobisher, Romantic Time

“Eide writes great dialogue that nicely paces the narrative … bears watching as a storyteller.”
