Here are what some folks are saying about In Name Only:
“If you love romance but hate smut, pick up this beautiful story and let it carry you away. The characters are believable, layered, human and humorous even in the midst of tragedy. The reader never loses hope and is rewarded on every page with little gems of character behavior, dialogue, plot twists and romantic intrigue. I was so very sorry when it ended!”
Lisa Mladinich, writer, novelist, founder, AmazingCatechists.com
“...this is the the best book I’ve read in a long time. It has all the qualities that make for an outstanding, memorable novel–and it’s Catholic as well! I highly recommend it!”
Therese Heckenkamp, Traditional Catholic Novels.com, and author, Past Suspicion
“…conveys the beautiful Catholic teachings on conjugal love, and shares both a pro-life story and a conversion story.”
Jean Heimann, Catholic Fire
“There aren’t too many historical romance novels that appeal equally to men and women, but Ellen Gable pulls it off admirably with IN NAME ONLY. My wife read the novel first–and kept telling me “You HAVE TO read this book!”–while at the same time not allowing me to pry it from her fingers until after she finished it. Ms. Gable’s writing gave birth to very real, three-dimensional characters. I especially liked how she could portray a man given over to every imaginable vice without ever lapsing into too lurid detail. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!” Gerard Webster, award-winning author, “In Sight,” and “The Soul Reader”
“…Ellen Gable has crafted another beautiful historical romance which examines difficult issues faced by people in every age. While her exceptional attention to historical detail allows the reader to feel immersed in the story’s post-Civil War era, the challenges the characters must deal with – lust, adultery, abortion, class and gender prejudice – all are still very real and relevant to a modern audience. Handled with amazing sensitivity, In Name Only is not simply a novel about one man’s redemption from the addictions that plague him, but a story about how love can change us all if we let it…” Krisi Keley, author, “Pro Luce Habere”
