Nashville, TN (April 20, 2021)
Publishers Weekly reports that the next novel from bestselling Christian fiction author Francine Rivers will be The Disinherited. Set in 1870s California, the historical romance follows a suffragette and newspaper publisher who forms a complicated relationship with a former Union soldier from a Southern family. Tyndale House has scheduled the book for publication in 2022.

Francine told FamilyFiction:

“I hope the stories I write will increase readers’ hunger and thirst for Jesus, and the characters will inspire them to be more like Him. It’s so easy to follow the ways of the world, to get sucked into following the herd rather than be among the flock. I want to encourage readers to trust in the Lord always and to remember only His Word is truth.”


Following the success of her watershed novel Redeeming Love, Francine Rivers has continued to win both industry acclaim and reader loyalty around the world. Her Christian novels have been awarded or nominated for many honors, and in 1997, after winning her third RITA Award for Inspirational Fiction, Francine was inducted into the Romance Writers of America’s Hall of Fame. In 2015, she received the Lifetime Achievement Award from American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW). Francine’s novels have been translated into over thirty different languages, and she enjoys bestseller status in many foreign countries. Her latest book is the contemporary romance The Masterpiece (Tyndale House).
