About the Author:

Christiane Banks lives in Ontario, Canada, with her husband. Amelia's Prayer, which took six years to write, is her debut novel.

Review:

This elegantly written historical romance details changing times with subtlety and care... . Elegantly written, Amelia's Prayer is a brave, engaging story of romance and disappointment. Christiane Banks's confident style and complex characters make this debut novel a must-read for fans of historical drama, realistic romance, and fiction, one that begs to be enjoyed again and again. --Clarian

A sweeping family saga, Christiane Banks' Amelia's Prayer is an engrossing and emotional story that spans decades and generations... . The author manages the tale's pacing perfectly; she covers several decades without the story ever feeling rushed or belabored. In addition, the settings are beautifully described and realized, never overshadowing the plot or characters. Overall, this is a well-written exploration of love, relationships, heartbreak, tragedy, happiness, death, and hope; an honest and thoughtful portrait of what it's like to be a family. --Blue INK

The book adroitly plots out a whole family history, carefully connecting the dots over successive generations. The prose is often elegant: \"she had never seen such a magnificent tree in her whole life. It looked like a weeping willow dressed for a ball.\"... the quality of the writing and the sweetness of the story will carry romantically inclined readers along to the poignant conclusion. --Kirkus Review
