gableThis month, in conjunction with our Catholic Moments Podcast interview with talented Catholic fiction author Ellen Gable, we are offering you an opportunity to win a great Catholic novel.  Five winners will receive an e-book version of Ellen's latest book In Name Only. Two additional winners will each receive one of Ellen's novels, In Name Only and Emily's Hope.

Here are brief descriptions of these two Catholic novels:

In Name Only - 1876, Philadelphia. Caroline Martin's life has finally taken a turn for the better. After years of hard work, she has met a virtuous and wealthy man whose love seems to promise the kind of life realized only within the comforting novels she keeps on her night table. Tragedy, however, will teach Caroline of the complexity with which God Himself authors the lives of those who turn toward Him.

Emily's Hope - Emily's Hope is the gripping story of one young woman's physical, emotional, spiritual journey from high school to adulthood. Interspersed throughout the story are flashbacks to Emily's great-grandmother's troubled life, with a climax culminating in the surprising revelation that Emily and her great-grandmother are connected more deeply than by ancestral ties alone. Emily's Hope won an Honorable Mention Award for Religious Fiction in the 2006 Independent Publisher Book Awards and in 2009, received the Catholic Writers' Guild Seal of Approval.
