Dear Reader Friends:

Fall. A season showcasing God’s glory in nature and His eternal power. For some all they see is the dying—beautiful flowers , productive vegetable gardens, green leaves falling from trees like a generation of friends and family passing away.

But wait! The naked tree arms stretch heavenward. They are not dead. Come spring, life bursts through every bony branch. Buds, flowers, seeds and leaves erupt. Just like the dead in Christ will awake, a new eternal body will come forth, and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
What glory! What wonder!

The hope we have in Christ is the reason I write, and I pray each of my books will be stick-to-your-soul encouragement.

To celebrate the release of my historical novel, The Lady Fugitive, all four of my other books are FREE Sept. 25-28.
Imagine the future You, The Castle and the Catapult, Swallowed by Life, Confessions of a Pentecostal. See all on my Amazon author page

The paperback edition of The Lady Fugitive should be available soon. The Kindle version has already received 20 reviews.

The Lady Fugitive
By Ada Brownell
How does a respected elocutionist become a face on a wanted poster?
Jenny Louise Parks escapes from the coal bin, and her abusive uncle offers a handsome reward for her return. Because he is a judge, he will find her or he won’t inherit her parents’ ranch.
Determination to remain free grips Jenny, especially after she meets William and there’s a hint of romance. But while peddling household goods and showing a Passion of the Christ moving picture, he discovers his father’s brutal murder.

            Will Jenny avoid the bounty hunters? Can she forgive the person who turns her in? Will she find peace, joy and love?
            One reviewer: Jenny will you laughing, biting your nails, wishing you had a gun to help.

By Ada Brownell
Ada Brownell Author Page
Do you believe you could live with someone else’s heart or kidneys, but not without your body? Evidence shows we’re more than flesh. The author, a prolific religion writer and retired medical journalist, talks about the evidence; the wonder of life with all its electrical systems; the awesome truth about cell death and regeneration; mysteries surrounding the change from mortal to immortal; where we go when our body dies; resurrection; and a glimpse at what we will do in heaven. Questions and answers make this non-fiction inspirational book a great text for group study. It’s written for support groups, religion classes, people with chronic or terminal illness, individuals who fear death or are curious about it, the grieving, and those who give them counsel.
Review: “It was wonderful how the author merged the medical with the spiritual.”

Reviewer: “A.B. Brownell weaves a tale of intrigue and faith which captures the reader from the opening page.”

By Ada Brownell
Ada tells what it was like to grow up in a Pentecostal home, miracles she witnessed, and then of her own journey following the Lord. Her inspiring confessions of faith will encourage and bless believers everywhere.
Originally published by the Assemblies of God in 1978, the book was listed in 2011 and many other years among 10 recommendations on Pentecostalism by The Library Thing. It was converted to an e-book in 2011.
Review: Confessions Of a Pentecostal is more than just a book or a story; it is an ultimate look inside another person's faith. Truly remarkable, a book that I will reread time and time again, I recommend this to anyone who ever wonders about who we are: who are the Pentecostals. or
