An ancient relic, a puzzling prophesy, a young woman . . . tied together through the ages . . .
Throughout history, blood moons have always been surrounded by persecution and provision, great trials and triumphs. The first blood moons in 1493-1494 provided a new world for the Jewish people. The second in 1949-1950 gave them Israel, and the third in 1967-1969 presented the Jewish people with Jerusalem. Now, a fourth set of blood moons is on the horizon, and Tassie’s mother is certain they will bring about great change.
Tassie, a young Jewish lawyer named for a lost religious relic, has her sights set on her career and love, and she doesn’t have time for silly children’s stories. Dismissing the blood moons as circumstance, her unbelief threatens to keep her from her destiny. When Tassie finds herself in the center of worldwide turmoil and a terrorist plot, can she accept her family history and fulfill her place in the future of Israel? Or will the country of her heritage finally fall to its many enemies?
Blood Moon Redemption is an end-times thriller that will keep you riveted until the very last moonrise.
A review by Karen Muhling Curzon:
I had the privilege to read an advance copy of Judy DuCharme’s newest book, to be released in a few weeks, “Blood Moon Redemption” and – oh, goodness. It’s fiction and uses history, science, politics and intrigue with a healthy fill of faith and heritage to spin a fascinating story. I didn’t want to stop reading, and I wasn’t ready for it to be over when it was.
The storyline itself is fascinating, and the characters are easy to keep up with but well-written and believable, not flat or one-dimensional. The main character’s life is dramatically changed thanks to a prophecy – about her – from over 500 years earlier. The story moves back and forth among different eras and generations as it lays out the chain of events. It was great fun, from the science to the history to the reminders of God’s dazzling, infinite and unfailing love. All of it. I recognized some people and thought I recognized others or at least their personalities or histories, that was fun.
I felt refreshed in my faith, and am more eager to share it than ever. There were a few things that this book made me examine a little deeper than I have before, and it shed light on some things that I’d not thought about at all, just never on my radar… Have I used the words “fascinating” and “interesting” too many times?
I realized again, for the millionth time, that though I’ve been in the church my whole life, others can always offer perspectives that I simply never thought about before and Blood Moon Redemption (need to remind you of the title, you’ll want to read it) was terrific.

While the Bible makes it clear that no one knows the hour of Jesus’ return, it also gives us signs of His coming and tells us to be prepared. In “Blood Moon Redemption,” Judy DuCharme weaves together the biblical signs of the coming of Jesus with today’s news headlines to craft a page-turning tale of mystery and suspense. At the same time she delicately tells the story of a modern-day Jewish family grappling with the question of the Messiah, while interacting with Christians, Muslims, and Jews along the journey. With unexpected turns along the way, this story will surprise and delight, while inviting you to view today’s news headlines in a whole new light.
Woo hoo! The Cheesehead Devotional, Hall of Fame Edition, has just released through SonRise Devotionals, a division of Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas. It’s been a very busy year-plus in the making. This is the second in the series. The Kickoff Edition came out in 2012 . . . yes, 5 years ago. It’s still a strong seller. This one focuses on the Packer Hall of Famers. I was totally delighted to have Bonita Favre, Brett’s mom, write my foreword. She endorsed the first one and graciously agreed to write the foreword for this book.
Reggie White’s wife, Sara, wrote the foreword for the Kickoff Edition and endorsed the Hall of Fame Edition. I was so pleased that Kevin Harlan gladly endorsed as well. Kevin is the son of Bob Harlan, former Packers President. He also announces football and basketball for CBS, TNT, and Westwood One. Kevin wrote: ‘As a man of faith and with a profound interest in the Green Bay Packers, I can tell you that the two are joined seamlessly in Judy DuCharme’s The Cheesehead Devotional, Hall of Fame Edition.’
Wayne Larrivee, game-day voice of Packer radio endorsed both books, saying about the newest: ‘Judy DuCharme has taken the quotes of Lombardi and the spirit of some of the greatest Packer players of all time and skillfully woven them into a series of inspirational messages for us all.’
Well known fans, Steve “The Owner” Tate, and Wayne Sargent, the ‘Ultimate Packer Fan’ joined the endorsers. This book is written for the fans so I was delighted to have these two endorse the book.
So if you’re ready for the adventure of the game, the challenge to live strong with excellence, a time to honor the history of the Packers, and a view of many Lombardi quotes, this is your book. It’s available for on Amazon and soon to be in local stores. Let me know what you think on facebook (Judy DuCharme), @PackerJudy, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you get the book on Amazon, would you be so kind to write a review. One or two sentences are all that’s needed. Thank you so much.
Christmas Ivy a heartwarming Christmas story with a twist of how God provides published by Prism Book Group in November 2016. It is available as an ebook at Amazon.
How can one visit alleviate the trials of the past few years? How can one quilt reveal truths never before realized?
It had to be a dream…
Her grandparents passed away a few years earlier, but here in the family kitchen on the dawn of Christmas morning, they greet her with the same love and sage advice she grew up with. Their presence captivates reality and brings Ivy to complete confusion.
Could this strange visit truly be the provision for which Ivy longed?
Excerpt: The sizzle of bacon cooking brought Ivy to an upright position out of sound sleep. The smoky flavor tantalized her nostrils as the fog in her mind slowly lifted. Her hands flew to her face. It’s Christmas! The words rose within her, not with joy, but with panic. How could she have slept so late!? Mama will have my head. I should be making breakfast. But wait. It’s Christmas! Mama must have let me sleep. A wonderful gift, to sleep past dawn. Ivy heard a gentle snoring and looked to see the cat curled next to her legs.
Run With the Wind is part of a Christmas Cowboy novella series, published by Prism Book Group in November 2016. It is an ebook available at Amazon.
Linney Merritt loves her life in the Florida scrub where she assists her Pa in raising and taking cattle to market. The new cowman, Cyrus John, appreciates the chance to start over. Marrying holds no interest for either, but they can’t help but be drawn to each other. And then, just before Christmas, they find themselves fighting together to save the life of a calf, all while discovering the One who can remove fears and provide forgiveness.
Life changed for the world in a stable one Christmas. Could it also begin for Linney and Cy in this stable?
Excerpt: Nellie moaned, and Linney pulled. The emerging calf licked her face. “We better hurry, Pa. He just done licked me. Don’t want him thinkin’ I’m his mama.”
“You’ll make a good one someday.”
“That ain’t happenin’. Why would anyone want to go through this?”
Pa looked around Nellie’s bulk. His eyes found Linney’s. “For the likes of you, girl. It’s worth it.”
