Want to Read the Next Peretti or Dekker - Check Out Gatehaven by Molly Noble Bull

Book Review by Kathleen L. Maher

Evil has its hour, but the end of the Story reveals a Victor whose atoning sacrifice makes redemption possible. This is the central theme of the Bible, and also of this gothic tale of intrigue and wickedness in high places, and of rescue and restoration.

Rachel Shannon Aimee is the beautiful and spirited daughter of French Huguenots settled in Scotland. She has an honorable admirer in Ian Colquhoun, a minister in training. Shannon becomes the unwitting target of two conspiring men bent on evil: the young, charming Earl of Northon, and Etienne Gabeau, aka Leon Picard, a wealthy old man looking to satiate his lust for revenge against Shannon's mother for scorning Leon's advances many years ago. Ian and Shannon's brother Peter would save Shannon from a big mistake--trusting the handsome earl's sudden proposal of marriage. Their journey takes Shannon, Ian and Peter Aimee to England where the young lass is set to become the earl's bride, or perhaps meet a nefarious fate.

What transpires will send chills racing down the reader's spine, and keep them riveted on the edge of their seat, as mysteries are uncovered and evil is exposed by the light of revelation. Enemies and allies are drawn up in an epic battle of good and evil, while the plot twists and turns through narrow escapes and brushes with cultish meetings and the supernatural. So much more than entertainment, this story brings truth and balance to a cultural fascination with spiritualism. Written with skill, keen insight and wisdom, this story will please readers of Frank Peretti, Tedd Dekker, and all fans of supernatural thrillers.

Gatehaven, Molly Noble Bull's Christian gothic set in Europe in 1784, won the 2013 Creation House Fiction Writing Contest while still a manuscript, and Gatehaven is the novel being featured today. However, Molly’ first two published novels were published by Zondervan. Her Zondervan novels were later reprinted and published as Promise Romances from Guideposts. Molly also sold novels to Love Inspired and Tsaba House. Westbow Press published The OvercomersChristian Authors Who Conquered Learning Disabilities, a non-fiction book she wrote with four other Christian authors. Molly owns the rights to her Zondervan romance novels now, and she will soon self- publish The Rogue’s Daughter as an e-book. Rogue is a western set on a South Texas cattle ranch in 1890.
