Free Christian Books – Mystery, Suspense, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Women’s Fiction and more

Updated March 28, 2020 Wow! So many free books this week, to entertain us in this time of quarantine.  All of these Kindle books are absolutely free on Amazon right now – no strings attached – but it would be a great blessing to thank these generous authors by leaving a review when you finish a book.  In each of these lists, I’ve been committed to including only books with a clear Christian worldview – books that glorify God. This has been challenging, because sometimes the Amazon categories aren’t accurate. When I wasn’t sure a book was specifically Christian in content, I read the description page, the author bio, and the reviews. The hardest part of this process was with the Science Fiction and Fantasy books. I had no idea there were so many Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy books! Many young people like these genres, and I wanted to have a “trustworthy” list for you. I might have missed some good ones, and I might have included something that you won’t find “Christian enough,” but I did my best!

Is There a Quilter on Your Christmas List?

I’ve enjoyed writing the traditions of my own Swedish heritage into my Glory Quilts books. My fictional Anderson family are descendants of immigrant farmers in central Minnesota – just like my own family! Throughout the series, Great-aunt Violet – spinster, quilter, and genealogist – chronicles the family history in a series of quilts. There’s plenty of laughter and fun and romance in these books, along with a multi-generational mystery that dates back to before World War II. And romance, too, of course! To make it even better, there are QUILTS!  In each of the Glory Quilts books, the heroine and Aunt Violet make a quilt together. Those quilts are featured on the cover of the books, and you can get the patterns to make your own.  You can find those on Amazon, Etsy, and my website, in digital and paper formats. The Glory Quilts Christmas Gift Set So… just the other day, I had a brilliant idea: I put together a Glory Quilts gift set with The Christmas Glory Quilt and The Swedehearts Glory Quilt and their patterns. It’s the perfect Christmas present for the quilter or reader on your list! I’ll inscribe and sign the books if you like, Read More
