It's not often you find historical Christian fiction set in Germany, so when I found out that's what Lynn U. Watson has planned for us, I was eager to learn more. Listen in and see why!

This book (and series, actually) has all the elements you'd find in a Grimm story--except this isn't a fairy tale, folks. This is life as it was for some people. I think I'm glad my family would've been peasants. Sure, I might have worked myself into an early grave (and starved!), but I wouldn't have been property to buy and sell!  So... there's that.

Tangled Promises by Lynn U Watson

 Thunderous applause extinguishes her dream and ignites her worst nightmare.

Clara Reinhold’s father publicly pledges her hand to Georg Wolff. His character and arrogance match the stench of his odious cigars, but his lineage offers a suitable alliance for the station of a baron’s daughter.

A charades clue years earlier turned friendship into a promise of forbidden marriage between Clara and family carriage driver, Daniel Becker.

If she refuses Georg and follows her heart, her father disowns her and she loses everything—her loving family, dear friends, and the only home she’s known.

As a tangled web of scandal and deceit unwinds, hidden motives and illicit activities emerge among an unsuspecting ring of players changing everything but nobility’s rules.

How will justice be served?

How will Clara and Daniel overcome obstacles to claim a future beyond that of a charade?
