Cathy Gohlke is the three-time Christy Award–winning author of the critically acclaimed novels The Medallion, Until We Find Home, Secrets She Kept, (Christy, Carol and INSPY Awards), Saving Amelie (INSPY Award), Band of Sisters, Promise Me This (listed by Library Journal as one of the best books of 2012), William Henry Is a Fine Name (Christy Award), and I Have Seen Him in the Watchfires (Christy Award), which also won the American Christian Fiction Writers’ Book of the Year Award and was listed by Library Journal as one of the best books of 2008.
She writes novels steeped with inspirational lessons, speaking of world and life events through the lens of history and championing the battle against oppression. Inspiration for her stories, poetry, and drama have come from a love of history, as well as from her large and interesting family, the people she’s known, and the places she’s lived — North and South — on farms and in small towns.
Cathy’s writing has also appeared in Chicken Soup for the Single’s Soul, in My Turn to Care – Affirmations for Caregivers of Aging Parents, in newspapers, magazines, and in plays and monologues produced on local stages.
When not travelling to historic sites for research, she, her husband and their dog, Reilly, divide their time between northern Virginia and the Jersey Shore.
“Cathy Gohlke never fails to deliver wonderfully-woven novels of hope, resilience and tenderness. A master storyteller, her prose is evocative and beautiful from first page to last.”
Bestselling author; The Last Year of the War
