No, it's not a mystery, but The Covered Deep does bring a group of strangers together on an adventure where each character's background deepens the mystery of their interactions.
It's not a tragedy in the true sense of the word, but it does paint a picture of hope for redemption for those in tragic situations. This story takes the reader on a voyage that is neither traditional nor formulaic.
Bianca Marshal has turned down every possible suitor in her small Appalachian town, waiting on her prince charming--a man she hopes can quote Jesus and Shakespeare. Reaching twenty-five, she's refused to lower her standard despite her mother's pleas to settle for less. At her father's urging, she enters a contest and wins a place on a voyage to the Holy Land, secretly hoping to meet her future husband.
With eyes blinded by sentimental hopes and dreams, she throws her affections to the feet of a handsome historian. Paul Emerson lives a changed life. But the faithless orchestrator of the whole adventure knows the pasts of all his pawns and sets the plot in motion while waiting to see if any of them can prove the transforming power of faith.
Will the price for truth be too high to pay? For who?
Can Bianca dig beneath the surface to the deeper places where love requires forgiveness?

Brandy Vallance fell in love with the Victorian time period at a young age, loving the customs, manners, and especially the intricate rules of love. Since time travel is theoretically impossible, she lives in the nineteenth century vicariously through her novels. Unaccountable amounts of black tea have fueled this ambition. Brandy's love of tea can only be paralleled by her love of Masterpiece Theater Classics, deep conversations, and a good book. Brandy is the 2013 Operation First Novel winner and the 2012 winner of the ACFW Genesis Contest for historical romance.
