Michael Dunnagan was never supposed to sail on the Titanic, nor would he have survived if not for the courage of Owen Allen. Determined to carry out his promise to care for Owen’s relatives in America and his younger sister, Annie, in England, Michael works hard to strengthen the family’s New Jersey garden and landscaping business.
Annie Allen doesn’t care what Michael promised Owen. She only knows that her brother is gone—like their mother and father—and the grief is enough to swallow her whole. As Annie struggles to navigate life without Owen, Michael reaches out to her through letters. In time, as Annie begins to lay aside her anger that Michael lived when Owen did not, a tentative friendship takes root and blossoms into something neither expected. Just as Michael saves enough money to bring Annie to America, WWI erupts in Europe. When Annie’s letters mysteriously stop, Michael risks everything to fulfill his promise—and find the woman he’s grown to love—before she’s lost forever.

This book is not about the holiday called Thanksgiving.It is not about how to celebrate Thanksgiving. This book is a challenge to you to cultivate a heart of thankfulness to God and to the people He has placed in your life 365 days of the year.Thankfulness is not about keeping tradition. It is a matter of the heart. It should be an everyday occurence. It should be a habit; it should be a way of life. It may seem as though it is small or insignificant to you, but it means a lot to God and to others. I pray that this book will encourage you and challenge you to be thankful for everything. –Daniella, from the Introduction

Ordained Irreverence is a very funny novel about a young church intern named Elmo Jenkins who’s learning the ropes in a big downtown church. It’s loaded with humorous, awkward, and even touching stories, many of which were inspired by the author’s own experiences. The cast of characters filling the pews at First Church keep Elmo on his toes and more than a little bewildered at times. Woven throughout Elmo’s adventures is a hundred-year-old mystery he’s determined to solve and even a chance at romance along the way. McMillian Moody’s fast-paced, laugh-out-loud novel will bring a smile to even the most backslidden amongst its readers. - OBT Bookz

It’s just hours away from the championship game of the season, and every eye in the high school is riveted on Bucky Stone. The Panthers’ star hitter has carried his team all season long. But before he takes the field, he’s got to make the toughest decision of his life.
He can compromise his new Christian beliefs – or turn teammate Dan Litton, Coach Brayshaw, and the entire student body against him. Maybe for good. And how will he win any of his secular friends to Jesus that way?
Book #2, Showdown at Home Plate, is brimming with a sparkling romance tale, suspenseful baseball action, a kidnapping subplot, and young Mr. Stone’s stubborn insistence on following God’s directions for his life . . . no matter what.

Do you struggle with hating yourself? Have you ever thought your relationships, job, accomplishments, and religion should make you feel more satisfied than they do? Have you ever wondered why it’s still so easy for you to be judgmental or why people don’t respond to you the way you’d like them to? Perhaps most importantly, do you want to see a real, lasting change in your life?
This book will tell you why having confidence really matters (it’s not for the reasons you think), contrast the world’s definition of confidence with true confidence, and give you the 5 core truths about confidence. You’ll also learn where our lack of confidence comes from, the 11 steps to become confident, and several pitfalls to avoid. Finally, there is a short section for those of you who are not just unconfident, but earnestly hate yourselves. It’s called Slaying the Dragon, and if you are one of these people, you probably know what I’m talking about.
I started this book as a Christian with almost no self-confidence. I made a promise to myself that I would not publish it unless the principles in it worked wonders for me. My story is in it, along with a number of analogies, Bible verses and examples, and some hard-hitting questions and statements. It’s changed my life completely. I hope it does the same for you.
I have not read any of these books, so they may not be any good. Some of the books from previous Free Book posts are still available for free. If you want to see all free books as they come out you should follow Books on the Knob on their RSS or Twitter Feed. Or Ireaderreview or the many free book threads on Amazon’s Message Boards.
As always please check to make sure the books are still free before you “buy” them, especially from Amazon. Prices can change quickly. This may be a one day offer. Pick it up quick. If you do buy a book and realize later you have been charged for it, here is a guide on how to return a kindle book.
