Molly Noble Bull!! Her book Sanctuary was voted as tops in this category by librarians, booksellers and avid readers of romance. It is exciting to see one of the books I reviewed receiving recognition for a novel that clearly presents a Christian worldview and seeks to glorify our Lord. Congratulations, Molly!
