Top Ten Tuesday: Restoration Fiction I Love

Posted August 6, 2019 by meezcarrie in Christian, contemporary, historical, romance, Top Ten Tuesday / 13 Comments

Happy Tuesday! Today, I wasn’t feeling the Top Ten Tuesday topic of cover redesigns we loved or hated so I’m going off-topic while still keeping to the heart of the topic. After all, cover redesigns are a form of renovation, much like the wildly-popular home renovation & restoration shows like Fixer Upper and Property Brothers. So I decided that a look at some restoration themed fiction that I love would be fun to do!

Some of these books involve home restorations, some involve art restoration or another building of some sort (church, shop, etc.), but all revolve the theme of restoring something that has fallen into disrepair. And usually that includes a heart or a soul or a relationship, too 😉 They cover a range of genres, including contemporary and historical, dual timeline, romance, women’s fiction, etc.

P.S. – there’s way more than 10. I’m sure no one is surprised LOL.

P.S. again – one of my very fave Terri Blackstock novels is in this list. Have you read Emerald Windows yet? Don’t miss it!

clicking on the cover will take you to Amazon or my review











What about you? Which of these books catch your eye? Do you have any fave ‘restoration fiction’ that you’d recommend?

    Thank you so much for including HER HOPE DISCOVERED! I’m thrilled you consider it “restoration fiction”! What a fabulous selection of titles! xo

  2. First of all, I LOVE your blog! Your header is so so cute ?I like your twist on today’s topic. I don’t think I’ve read any renovation/restoration themed novels (at least none that come to mind) but a few of these have caught my eye and I’m going to check them out on GR! Really liking the look of Hometown Girl and A Heart Restored!

  3. I really like the cover for The Carpenter’s Daughter. I can’t think of many books featuring women who are carpenters (which I’m assuming she is based on the tools she’s carrying?!)

    My TTT.

    Love Pepper’s The Thorn Healer! Such a terrific story! Really liked a Cautious Maiden as well! Returning Home was such a great novel,too. Many great reads here…I haven’t read Emerald Windows…missed that one.

  5. Nice topic choice! I don’t read a lot of this variety but I’m definitely trying to expand my horizons a bit so I may lift some of these for my TBR. For some reason, I am really intensely drawn to the colours used in the cover design for Hometown Girl? It’s so eye-catching.

  6. Thank you so much for listing Returning Home. You have a lot of my favorites up here. And I need to check out Terri Blackstock’s. I haven’t read that one.
