Plague ravages the English capital, London.
Thousands are left dead.
In the Derbyshire village of Eyam, 160 miles north of the London tragedies, Kitty Allenby is settling into country life. Encouraged by her Aunt Anne and Uncle Robert, she is excited for the year ahead.
That is until a stranger arrives from London, bringing a parcel of cloth for the local tailor – cloth infested with plague-carrying fleas.
Within weeks, Eyam is under siege.
By spring 1666, drastic action is needed to contain the spread of disease. What can be done?
The Reverend William Mompesson thinks he knows. For his plan to succeed, Mompesson will need the co-operation of the whole community, including his predecessor and rival, Thomas Stanley.
Will the two men be able to put aside the deep mistrust of one another for the sake of the people they are called to serve? How will the doomed villagers respond?
And what of Kitty? Can she learn to love a community not her own, perhaps paying the ultimate price alongside strangers she barely knows?
Based on true events, Given Lives is a story of bravery and sacrifice, of love that laid itself down for the sake of others. It is a whisper through time to each of us confronted by a modern plague, the global Covid 19 pandemic. Will we attune our ears and listen?

Poetry & Prayer
when prayers of the heart become words on pages
'When I realised poetry was going to feature strongly in my writing, I felt the need to develop a discipline of practice. With this is mind, I joined an online '12 Poems in 12 Months' challenge, whereby a topic or style is given each month and feedback provided by other participants. This isn't a specifically Christian group of writers and so I enjoyed the additional challenge of finding ways to introduce my faith into several of my submissions. This short book of seven poems and the inspiration behind them stems from that challenge.'
Thirty Days of Honour
celebrating the women in my life - and the inspiration in theirs
In South Africa, August is officially designated Women's Month in commemoration of the 20,000 women of all races who marched to the centre of the then apartheid government in Pretoria in protest against an amendment to the 'pass laws' which sought to control the movement of women of colour across the country.
Just as life in South Africa is what it is today thanks to the bravery and camaraderie of those pioneers, writer Anna Jensen is herself a product of the combined inputs of some amazing women. In August 2020, she decided to celebrate and honour some of these women by introducing them to the world through a series of micro-blog posts, in which each woman was given the opportunity to share on a woman from the Bible who particularly inspired them.
'Thirty Days of Honour' is a 30-day book of Christian devotions collecting these posts together in one place. Each day's entry includes a prompt to 'make it personal', and closes with a prayer.
Twenty Years an Expat
tales of settling in
'Although 'The Outskirts of His Glory' was my first book published, my first foray into the world of writing was a blog entitled 'Twenty Years an Expat'. Started on the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of my arrival in South Africa from England, the blog was a collection of memories and anecdotes from those early days of settling in. I decided to compile the blog posts into book form to offer this collection to readers.'
Now with additional devotional content in the form of Bible verses and prayers.
