NOVIDADES/EUA/LIVROS: Lançamentos de ficções de março nos EUA [em inglês]

O site Christian Fiction Online Magazine mostrou mais lançamentos de ficções cristãs nos EUA. Como já comentei na postagem da edição de fevereiro, é uma capa mais linda do que a outra, não é?
Entre os autores desses livros, destaco as escritoras Judith Miller e Terry Blackstock, já conhecidíssimos pelos leitores estadunidentes. Gostaria muito que alguma editora publicasse os livros da Terry, pois são livros cristãos com muito mistério.
Abaixo trago as capas e as sinopses [em inglês] de cada livro.
