Our new releases this month will take you on a variety of adventures, whether that’s navigating romance and class differences in Victorian England, protecting the manuscripts of the Bible in the first century, or finding love in the American West. If any of these “sneak peek” descriptions seem intriguing to you, try out the first few chapters by clicking on the cover to read an excerpt. I hope your March is full of good books (and enough time to read them).
