Although the biblical narrative of Moses is widely known, the story of a pivotal woman in Moses’ life remains a mystery that has both confounded and intrigued for thousands of years. Burning questions abound:
Who was Pharaoh Hatshepsut and how did she rise to such prominence, so much so that a magnificent funeral monument was erected in her honor? Why was it that such a concerted attempt was made to erase all memory of Hatshepsut from the annals of ancient history? How did it come to be that so many inscriptions, depictions, and statues of this captivating figure were so deliberately defaced? Is it possible that she could have been the teenaged daughter of Pharaoh who plucked Moses from the Nile, then raised him as her own? What impact did Hatshepsut have as Moses grew to manhood, married a beautiful black woman, then was forced to flee into exile after learning of his Hebrew roots?
Faithfully weaving the biblical account with little known historical and archaeological details, the author of Abraham and Sarah explores the enduring enigma of Moses and Hatshepsut, rescuing this fascinating woman from the bulrushes of anonymity.

In 1623 feisty and beautiful Hester Cooke arrives in New Plymouth with her two young daughters and little son to be reunited with the love of her life, husband Francis Cooke, and their elder son John, whom she has not seen since both sailed on the Mayflower nearly three years earlier. The previous year’s harvest has been catastrophic, far too meager to celebrate with feasting similar to the First Thanksgiving of 1621. The people of Plymouth barely survived last winter, thanks only to what men like Francis and boys like John have learned about hunting, gathering and fishing from their friends in the local Wampanoag “Indian” Tribe. Even now the settlers are living on the verge of starvation.
Reunited with son John, Hester discovers that her husband Francis is out on a dangerous mission with Captain Miles Standish and other militiamen to prevent a conflict between a group of dishonest English traders and the distant Massachusett Tribe from exploding into open warfare that could destroy Plymouth. After the peril is defused for the present, Hester and Francis are reunited at last, settling into their new lives. As the spring planting begins, Governor William Bradford and the Plymouth town council reach a momentous decision. Defying the rules set down by their London financial backers, they abandon communal farming (a form of what would now be called socialism) in favor of private property and free enterprise.
The opportunity to profit from one’s own hard work on one’s own land soon has every man, woman and child out working in the fields. Lack of motivation is a thing of the past, but Hester and Francis soon discover that Christians who take their faith seriously can still fall prey to overwork, insensitivity, envy, selfishness and strife.
These conflicts play out over one of the most dramatic years in American colonial history. The great Wampanoag chieftain Massasoit Ousamequin, who has kept the peace, falls ill to the point of death. The Pilgrims learn that two Massachusett braves are attempting to start a war to destroy all the white newcomers. Should these troublemakers be stopped, even if by a murderous preemptive strike?
What happens when nature itself seems to turn against all the inhabitants of the land, with the fingers of blame pointed squarely at the people of Plymouth by enraged Native Americans? What happens when the situation becomes so ominous, so deadly, so far beyond human solution, that the Pilgrims have nowhere to turn except to God and the power of prayer?
A novel from screenwriter Douglas Lloyd McIntosh, who adapted LOVE’S LONG JOURNEY and LOVE’S ABIDING JOY for the Hallmark Channel, films in the LOVE COMES SOFTLY series by the beloved Christian novelist Janette Oke.

Beyond the Closet Door celebrates the demonstrated power of Christ to heal adult child abuse victims. All victims of abuse deal with emotional issues in the aftermath of their oppression, whether it is physical, sexual, verbally or mental. This work of nonfiction furnishes the breath of life for the hope found within the resurrected soul touched by Calvary’s cost and empowers them to find God’s divine purpose for their lives.
Many broken Christians are looking for their salvation experience to fix them. When the honeymoon period in Christ is over, they have to face a new level of demonic oppression because of their position in Christ. They then retreat to the closet. Few people have the privilege of knowing that even though our salvation experience is a done deal in God’s eyes, it’s a continuous process here on earth. Phillipians 2:12 states that we must “work out our own salvation with fear and trembling.” The implication is that our confession of faith in Jesus Christ is the beginning of our commitment to this process that requires a corresponding action on our part. Beyond the Closet Door, assists the emotionally abused individual in finding their way to do the “work” necessary to embrace all that they’ve inherited through Christ and the cross. For the emotionally abused child this work is wrapped in developing the courage to seek God for His promised healing.
This book helps to expose the healing light of God’s love. It encompasses like experiences of many biblical characters and popular present day healed travelers on a similar journey. It also addresses the need for the body of Christ to step up to the plate in the power invested in them from the cross to embrace the seemingly unlovable victim of abuse. It is long overdue.
