Abiding Flame by Pauline Creeden

(Please check price before ordering)

 My Review: 

            In a world centuries into the future where the Bible is unknown and God has been forgotten, Lynette Lamb must make the difficult decision to send her beloved grandson to live with his father.

            Lieutenant Lamb has no use for his son or the God to whom he prays. If not for Tanya and Sam Austin, the boy would have no one to love and care for him on a mission to a new space colony.

            Needing to fill an extra seat on the ship, the lieutenant picks Bill, a poor choice who has an ever present demon. Bill has his eye on the captain’s daughter, but the demon wants Bill to sabotage the ship.

            Murder, intrigue, and suspense fill the pages of this novel and the hope of a handful of believers delivers God’s rescue.

            Science fiction and space travel are not usually my first choice in a read, but I couldn't put this one down for long. It is well written and Ms Creeden’s imagination and attention to detail makes for a very good story. 

About Pauline:  In simple language, Pauline Creeden creates worlds that are both familiar and strange, often pulling the veil between dimensions. She becomes the main character in each of her stories, and because she has ADD, she will get bored if she pretends to be one person for too long. Pauline is a horse trainer from Virginia, but writing is her therapy.

Haven't seen any Christian sci-fi before, what a cool idea!

Thanks for stopping by, Lynn. I hadn't read a Christian sci-fi, either but enjoyed this one.
