Pepper D. Basham

Author Pepper D. Bashamabout this book: The world is at war and Ashleigh Dougall is trying to survive the battle within herself. As the travels aboard the ill-fated Lusitania to escape her past and embrace a new future, she cannot run from haunting memories or the compassion of her best friend, Sam. As the two navigate the destruction of war and the blooming romance between them, they must learn to forgive, have faith, and grasp the faintest glimmer of hope to survive.

This novel brings to life a time period less depicted in fiction - World War 1 era. It also looks at the deep wounds brought upon the innocent and how forgiveness provides the ultimate healing. Ashleigh Dougall is The Thorn Bearer- carrying an unhealed wound all the way from her childhood.

For those interested in adventure, faith, romance, and hope, this book will provide them all.

The cover sets the mood of the story. A woman looking behind her and shrouded by the smoke, fog, and foreboding darkness of war.

Here are what a few reviewers have to say about The Thorn Bearer:

• "The historical details are wonderfully woven throughout the story and the setting so real I felt I was actually there. And the characters … even the one I didn't like had grabbed my heart by the end of the story. Wonderfully story-telling, a realistic faith journey, memorable prose and a dry wit that I appreciate very much all make this book one I won't soon forget."
— Cathy West, author of Yesterday's Tomorrow.

• "Author Pepper Basham knows how to pen a story that mesmerizes and transports her readers to another time. The depth of her characters and the redemption woven through a difficult topic puts her at the top of her craft. I can hardly wait to read more from this talented author!"
— Edie Melson, author of Fighting Fear, Winning the War at Home When your Soldier Leave for Battle
