The line between good and evil is as thin as one choice.

Before he was a villain, he was a boy … Young Cyril dreams of the things he might one day achieve, of the powerful magic he might wield. But when betrayal rips his dreams to shreds, thrusting him into the hands of a mysterious and frightening tyrant, he finds himself poised on a fulcrum between redemption and revenge. In the heat and smoke of dragon fire, one young man must decide what will be. Will he seek peace, or reach for power? Will he follow the light, or let dark desires rule? Will he follow the Dragon Between Worlds?

Spiritual Renewal Comes to America!

In 1739 America is in a state of spiritual despair, although signs of life have appeared to some. Catherine Harrison and her father are believers, but he’s desperately ill, and her mother’s choice is for Catherine to marry the wealthy magistrate’s son. Pastor Harrison sends his daughter to William Tennent’s “Log College” with an urgent summons—“Get the German.”

Henry Sharp, the German, is looking for a position when Catherine shows up bearing her father’s mysterious directive. At last, Henry hears, “This is the way, go in it.” But the path is neither easy nor simple. He faces immediate opposition from the church, and he isn’t free to pursue his affections for Catherine.

When the elders force Henry to leave, George Whitefield, evangelist extraordinaire, invites him on a tour, and Catherine sees a potential relationship with Henry slip away. Just before Henry and Whitefield return to Philadelphia months later, Catherine faces a new crisis. Might she have a second chance?

Morning Glory captures the spirit of the thirteen colonies during the First Great Awakening, which forever changed America and its people. Readers will recognize Whitefield, Benjamin Franklin, and Jonathan Edwards, as well as their own spiritual struggles. This is the first book in a series about revivals which shaped American history.
