Bonjour, Friends ~ Welcome back to the Video Café. This week, we share a coffee break with my dear friend (and amazing author) — Lynne Gentry! (Pssst! Be sure to hang around to the end of the coffee break for our usual #Giveaway…)
If you’re new to the Video Café, Click HERE to see what it’s all about. But if you’ve been here before, you know how it works. So let’s grab our cup of morning java and chat with Sarah…
BONJOUR — Welcome back to the Café, Lynne! We’re delighted to have you with us for another coffee break. So, now that it’s officially autumn (Yay!), where’s your cafe and just what are you drinking today? (Hot apple cider, maybe?)
Your new space is amazing — especially because of your sweet visitor who stays in your office with you! (P.S. We soooo want to sit down and have a chat with you and your gingerbread latte.) But as we’re just settling in on the couch with you, could you share what Scripture is ministering to you today?
You Scripture choice brings such a steadfast reminder of God’s faithfulness — especially as the season of change are upon us. And speaking of new things… We’re anxious to hear about your next book. Can you share more about Valley of Decision, and just why it feels a bit bittersweet this time around?
We are just loving the time we get to spend with you today. How fun to step into your world and see what life’s like for an author behind the scenes… And since you’re here and we can ask one of the biggest reader questions you receive:
Is time travel possible? (I actually have an opinion on this one!)
Here’s our final question… Another one that’s on my mind an as author:
How close did you stay to historical fact in this book?
Dearest Lynne – You are such a delight! I love any opportunity to spend time with you, sister. You’re encouraging, full of wisdom, and such a blessing to all of us. Please come visit again when you have another book to share. Or even if you just want to check in… we’re always up for a coffee break with you.
(P.S. I want to hug you for reals!! The last part of your clip made me cry!)
Lynne Gentry has written for numerous publications. Her new series, The Carthage Chronicles is a time travel, historical romance, adventure.

Lynne is pleased to offer a copy of Valley of Decision to one reader in our Café. This giveaway is for US residents only, and runs from 9/25 – 10/1/15. Enter by commenting on this post 9/25 – 10/1/15 with an answer to the following question:
- Lynne talked about one of the most frequent reader questions she receives: How close did you stay to historical fact in this book? As a reader — does this matter to you? Do you want a fiction author to stick straight to the facts, or, do you like storytelling magic to bend fact a little?
We’ll draw one lucky reader’s name to win the book and announce the winner on this post by 10/2/2015. And stick around, because we’ll have more authors visiting the Café through the end of the year. And in the meantime, stop by the Freebies & Fun page on my website — I’ll keep you up-to-date on the active #Giveaways we have running all the time!
With JOY & coffee talk,
