The Moses Conspiracy & Giveaway

TheThe Moses Conspiracy by Susan Reinhardt

 Congratulations to Susan J. Reinhardt! Her novel, The Moses Conspiracy has made its debut!

Here's the summary of this long awaited book: 

A trip to post-terrorized Washington, D.C. in 2025 and a buggy accident in Bird-in-Hand, PA set in motion events that expose a diabolical plan to destroy the Christian community. Ellie and John Zimmerman find themselves embroiled in a life-threatening investigation, fighting a shadowy enemy.

Convinced it's now safe to visit D.C., Ellie and her firstborn, 8-year-old Peter, travel to the nation's capital. Both mother and child make an effort to enjoy the sights, but they're unprepared for the challenges they face. Her nightmares come true when she and Peter are separated.
Back home, John witnesses a neighbor's buggy accident. The suspicious circumstances and law enforcement's refusal to take them seriously prompt him to take on the role of detective. He and a tenacious reporter band together and vow to find out what's happening in Bird-in-Hand.
Extended family squabbles erupt when John's sister, Annaliese, faces off with Ellie for blowing her D.C. experiences out of proportion. She'd rather ignore the warnings than deal with the growing danger.

John and Ellie can't decide whether her trip and his involvement with the accident were such a good idea. People are getting hurt, and their own family receives ominous warnings. Turning back the clock is not an option, but going forward could initiate more violence.

The small community is shattered when the unthinkable occurs. Will family, friends, and neighbors band together or allow fear to prevent them from taking action? Caught between strained family relationships and a faceless enemy, the couple rely on God for wisdom and protection. Little do they know that He's working on their behalf each step of the way. The scabs of a past tragedy get ripped open, and the truth of their second child's death is revealed. While they may expose the culprits, will they survive the heartache it brings?
Sounds like a winner, doesn't it? I've read a bit, but am looking forward to reading the entire book. I am SO excited for Susan. It's been a long and interesting adventure, and her persistence paid off.

    Ms. A said...

    My doctor didn't tell me that, but it seriously might make me feel better... at the least, relieved. I already have one stress inducer in my sights. LOL!

    nancygrayce said...

    I am going to look that book up......I've just finished the series called the Gresham Chronicles and I am so sad there isn't another one. I get caught up in the lives of the characters in books and hate it when the series is ended. :(

    The doctor actually told me I HAD to reduce the stress in my life and I said "I'd have to kill some people" so I loved this! I'm copying it and hope you don't mind. I'll just put it on facebook. :)

    Thanks for that laugh!

    Beth said...

    Sounds like a very good read.

    Debbie said...

    Your summary drew me in. It sounds like a really good book. I had never heard of the author. I actually love books with an Amish theme. I used to read Beverly Lewis until I got annoyed that she wouldn't bring closure in her books.

    And I loved that list you posted at the end. LOVED IT.

    Theresa said...

    Sounds wonderful! Have a blessed day, HUGS!

    Dee said...

    Your lovely day saying describes you...not sure if you wear perfume :) The book sounds interesting...may be a good summer read for me. I will have to go and see if I can be the winner of the giveaway :)

    A "wowers" post!!!
    Happy Easter!

    Janette Dolores said...

    Hi, Sandie:

    Thanks for doing a spotlight on Susan's book. I enjoyed interviewing her as part of her blog tour in one of my last posts. She's a pleasure!

    I enjoyed your Lovely Day saying. Isn't it funny how wearing perfume can perk up our day? I think it's a nice touch that helps us feel better and, therefore, act more kindly.

    Be well. Happy Easter!
