To Rise AboveCastle proudly presents a new fiction title – To Rise Above, by Julianne Jones. It’s a superbly written book – an exciting tale about the lives of a group of young people set in colonial New South Wales.

Julianne, who now lives in New Zealand, draws on the historical roots of her home country to create a vivid setting for a story about faith overcoming obstacles. To Rise Above focuses on the same characters as her first book – To a Distant Land (published by Arkhouse).

Here’s an excerpt from the back cover:

Katie, Samuel and Rhiannon have settled into a distant land but soon their faith will be tested beyond anything they had ever imagined…

After being wrongly accused and forced to give up everything, Katie Donovan has found new friends, new faith and a new family. But when it looks as if she’ll have to face even more heartache and loss will she have the strength to bear it?

Samuel McKinnon has accepted God’s plans for his life but he is about to come face-to-face with the harsh realities of colonial life. Will he give up or will he have the faith to persevere?

Rhiannon Sanford finally has the siblings she has longed for but then tragedy strikes and it looks as if she’ll lose everything she holds precious. Will she have the courage and faith to rise above?
