Lisa Wingate is a popular Christian fiction author with over 20 titles to her name. The library has many of her books in large print and regular print. This week's Port Pick is in large print. Lisa Wingate's latest series is Moses Lake and focuses around the fictional spot in Texas. She has three books in the series so far.
The latest offering from this author, titled Wildwood Creek, is set at Moses Lake although not officially part of that series. Allie Kirkland longs to follow in her father's line of work in the movie industry and jumps at the chance to be a costuming assistant on a movie docudrama set in Wildwood, Texas in 1861, now a ghost town. Back over a century and a half ago the town was a bustling place with a note of danger. The town's founder, Harland Delevan, held everyone in town in his grasp through a mix of debt, fear, and slavery. When young school teacher Bonnie Rose comes to town she is caught in his grasp as well. But when strange connections between Allie and long ago Bonnie surface, Allie knows she has to find the connection between the two of them. Allie doesn't know who she can trust - certainly not the handsome neighbor, Mr. Fulton.
Although author Lisa Wingate writes Christian fiction, this addition to our collection isn't overly preachy or filled with Bible verses. Don't let the page count of a large print book fool you; Wildwood Creek is a quick, light read for a weekend with just enough action to keep you hooked to the last page.
You can get the book reviewed here and more great titles to watch, read, listen to, or play with at the Port Library at 1718 N. Hersey in Beloit, on the North Campus. This is director Rachel Malay saying, "Thanks for checking us out!"
