Swept into Destiny
A more appropriate day couldn’t be found to reveal the cover of CrossRiver’s newest book, Swept into Destiny, by Catherine Ulrich Brakefield. Her dedication to historical accuracy and faith in Christ are hallmarks of all her historical fiction, and this first book in Catherine’s Destiny series doesn’t disappoint.

Swept into Destiny relates the story of Irish immigrant Ben McConnell and his encounter with the spunky Maggie Gatlan. The story opens in 1857 in Tennessee and carries us through the tumultuous years leading up to and through the Civil War.

Catherine keeps us on the edge of our seat as she weaves the history of Irish immigrants, the Civil War, and the Gospel of Christ into an inspirational story of action, suspense, and romance. As you turn the pages, you’ll experience renewed faith and encouragement in your own walk with Christ.
