Change is coming to Rose Hill plantation in Texas in this historical romance from the Civil War era. With Mama gone and Papa determined to find a husband for Adella Rose Ellis, the future looks uncertain. When Papa returns from Galveston, where he’d gone to purchase new slaves, Adella is shocked to discover the handsome stranger with a distinct limp arriving with Papa is not only the son of her father’s longtime friend, but also the new overseer of Rose Hill plantation. Though Seth seems a gentleman, past experience reminds Adella that all overseers are cut from the same, unsavory cloth. That sets the stage for a romance that ends in an elopement.

Non-believers scoff when Christians trade their sacred cows (everything they value) for a life with Jesus. All they see is a handful of useless biblical “beans.” Peter says there’s life in those beans. Jesus and the Beanstalk unpacks 2 Peter 1:1-10 using fairy tale, humor, and modern culture to show today’s believers how to unleash that promise and discover how to topple the giants in their lives.
