about the collection
For His glory…
The Mosaic Collection is an international community of women authors who use faith-based fiction to touch hearts with the good news that Christ’s finished work on the cross has made us one family, and to nurture affection for the people God has placed within our circles of influence, so that the grace and glory of God may become visible and personal to everyone we meet.
…and our good
We are sisters, a beautiful mosaic united by the love of God through the blood of Christ. We have experienced the redemptive, restorative power of God’s grace in our marriages and families, and we believe our God is able to heal, restore and redeem our brokenness. His love fills us with the courage to persevere, and to offer others a Christ-like compassion that is full of His wisdom and grace.

Title: When Mountains Sing
Author: Stacy Monson
Release Date: August 7, 2019
When the truth cost her everything, she thought there was nothing left to lose.
Mikayla Gordon loves nothing more than sleeping under the stars, reeling in the “big one,” and long hikes in the wilderness. A medical crisis reveals a 30-year-old secret that turns everything she’s known and believed upside down, unraveling her dreams and her identity.
In search of answers, she follows a trail from Minnesota to Colorado and discovers more unwelcome secrets even as she falls in love with the majestic beauty of the Rocky Mountains, and a wilderness camp leader who shares the greatest secret of all.
Knowing her life can never go back to what it was, she must make decisions that will impact far more than just her future.
Author: Eleanor Bertin
Release Date: September 4, 2019
Three deaths, three widows, and the ties that bind.
Ruthie Adrian loves ranch live with her handsome husband, Mac, and his family. But her hopes for a child dissolve when Mac, his brother and his father are killed in a crash. Added to their heartbreak, Ruthie and her mother-in-law, Naomi, now face rejection by her sister-in-law O’Dell, and impossible barriers as they try to protect their land.
Jake, a self-styled prophet, steps up with a bizarre offer. A God-send or a trap? With raw grief, unexpected humor, and life-giving grace, Unbound is a modern twist on a timeless tale of the unique bond between two widows, who harbour a few secrets of their own.
Title: The Red Journal
Author: Deb Elkink
Release Date: October 2, 2019
A child’s antique ring and a message from beyond the grave point to the treasure of a legacy lost.
Flirty globetrotter Sybil badgers her friend Libby to travel along in seeking out the world’s “sacred places”—a monastery in Japan, a mountaintop in Africa, a mosque in Istanbul. Her footloose wandering far from family values costs her more than money.
But Libby can’t afford to travel, and she’s plagued by a different kind of restlessness. Grieving the recent death of the grandmother who raised her in their inner-city Minneapolis tenement now slated for demolition, Libby faces homelessness in both heart and habitation.
When Libby discovers a cryptic message from beyond the grave and an antique ring pointing to a mystery in an inner room of a mansion museum in North Dakota, she sets out on a quest of her own for the meaning of heritage and home.
