Michelle Griep's been writing since she first discovered blank wall space and Crayolas. She seeks to glorify God in all that she writes--except for that graffiti phase she went through as a teenager. She resides in the frozen tundra of Minnesota, where she teaches history and writing classes for a local high school co-op. An Anglophile at heart, she runs away to England every chance she gets, under the guise of research. Really, though, she's eating excessive amounts of scones while rambling around a castle. Michelle is a member of ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) and MCWG (Minnesota Christian Writers Guild).

"The Captive Heart is filled with heart-tripping action and
romantic tension between a half-Cherokee frontiersman and a proper
English governess. Quickly engaging, fast-paced, and set on the
American frontier, the novel reminded me of The Last of the
Mohicans in all the right ways. Well done, Michelle Griep!"
-Julie Klassen, bestselling author
"Bold and captivatingly beautiful, Captive Heart is a book destined for accolades. Fans of the movies The Patriot and Last of the Mohicans have found new characters to love in Samuel and Eleanor. A masterpiece, from first page to last."
-Elizabeth Ludwig, author of Tide and Tempest

"Reminiscent of the wildness, adventure, and romance of The Last of the Mohicans, Captive Heart sizzles on every page. This is Michelle Griep's best book yet and one that played out before my eyes like an epic movie I kept wanting to watch over and over."
-MaryLu Tyndall, author of the award-winning Legacy of the King's Pirates
Oh, wow! Not enough praise can be given to Michelle Griep's The Captive Heart. This riveting, action-packed adventure set on the American frontier will leave you breathless with its beauty and power. By far, my favorite book of the year.
