by Molly Noble Bull
Gatehaven by Molly Noble Bull is a Christian Gothic historical novel set in a haunting mansion in the north of England where Ian Colquhoun and Shannon Aimee battle a Frenchman with dark secrets--spiritual warfare vs. the occult. Will they learn enough about God’s words to defend themselves and others or will evil overcome them?
Gatehaven is the 2013 Creation House Fiction Writing Contest Winner.
I really had no idea what kind of story this would be when I started. I've read a few books with a strong spiritual warfare aspect and I wondered if Gatehaven would follow the same ideas, but instead Gatehaven was its own unique story.
Sometimes Shannon made me so mad with her stubborn naiveté, but as she started seeing the truth and began to mature she kinda grew on me.
I liked Ian from the start. He was a pretty amazing young man to put up with some of Shannon's antics yet still loving her and staying to protect her.
A favorite part is how close-knit Ian and Shannon's families were. They were really what loving families should be. Shannon's parents and brother will go to great lengths to protect her and the others.
I think I really liked how this is a story of three young people learning that there is an enemy actively working against Christians, how to fight against the attacks, and that ultimately God has won the battle.
Even the few times I didn't quite agree with her, I seriously applaud Molly Noble Bull's bravery in writing this story. Fiction is the perfect medium to teach these important truths without seeming to.
