Publisher's Description

ABOUT THE BOOK: June 1693. It has been nearly a year since Susanna Jameson's beloved grandmother, Susanna North Martin, though innocent, was hung as a witch. Mrs. Martin's namesake, despairing over the loss, is having a crisis of faith. Hoping to lift her daughter's spirits, Susanna's mother convinces her to visit their friend, Madeline Osgood. Upon Susanna's arrival, she makes the acquaintance of her elderly friend's handsome neighbor and business partner, William Gage. While surveying the beautiful, young woman, he is immediately captivated. Soon the pair's interest in each other grows. However, through no fault of his own, Mr. Gage finds himself concealing a terrible secret. An acquaintance, who is also attracted to Susanna, if given an opportunity, would eagerly reveal that secret. What will happen? Will the rival disclose William's secret in order to win Susanna for himself? What is more, will she be inspired by Madeline's unshakable faith to rekindle her own? ABOUT THE AUTHORS: Inspired by interesting characters and events uncovered while doing genealogical research, mother and daughter writing team, Cathy Lynn Bryant and Jessica Marie Dorman, who live in beautiful New England, have masterfully woven the stories of real people and fictional characters from the 17th century to develop this inspirational, romantic work of historical fiction. Grandmother's Namesake is the second book in the Unshakable Faith series, with the third book to be completed in 2013.

    This is a historical Christian novel that picks up in 1693 after the witch trials of Salem. This novel is based on actual people with a fictional story along with fictional characters. Susanna North Martin was a real person who in 1692 was hung for being a witch. Of course, she wasn't a witch. She was a God-fearing Christian who just spoke her mind, but because of the events surrounding the fear of superstition, she was a brave victim. Her granddaughter, Susanna Jameson is a real person, and this novel is about her and her life in a fictionalization.

    Susanna's faith was shaken when her beloved grandmother was hung on that fateful day. She was a teenager and was forbidden to go, but she went anyway and hid in the background and saw the unthinkable. She was beyond heartbroken and even though she tried, she could not seem to forgive God for letting this happen.

    She is grown now and her parents are still concerned about her despondency and sends her to visit her grandmother's dear friend (and her dear friend) for a few weeks to see if that will help. She loved being with Maddie and begins to open her heart up but she still held such pain inside. She meets William Gage, who owns the farm next to Maddie and he help run Maddie's farm along with his. Susanna and William have an instant attraction to each other, but there are so many things that they will have to over come throughout this novel. It seems like on each page a prayer is shared by someone, Maddie, Susanna, William, Susanna's family and friends concerning their growing concern over the situation. Will she be able to finally forgive God, and forgive the people who killed her grandmother? Will she be able to finally rest in the love of God and of William?

    I did not read Book 1 in this series, because the author said it was not necessary. After reading this book, I searched for the first book thinking it would be about Susanna North Martin and the witch trials. But Book 1, Lost Love and Shipwrecked: Madeline Pike Finds Hope in the New Land, is another novelization about a real ship, Angel Gabriel, which was caught in a hurricane 1635 off the coast of New England. It sounds equally interesting.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author for my honest opinion and did not receive any compensation for a favorable review. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
