In 1779, George Key commits a crime and is given a choice – be hanged or fight in the King’s army against England’s rebellious colonists. He chooses war.

George’s mother gives him a Bible with the Key name imprinted on the cover. She reminds her son that God’s word is a firm foundation in a turbulent world and admonishes him to pass this precious gift of faith to future generations.

The Key Bible’s journey from Revolutionary War days to the present is chronicled in the unfolding lives of the owners of this precious inheritance, their personal Heirloom of Faith.

Join authors Sydney Winthrop, Christopher T. Lovett and Linda Baten Johnson as they research, write, edit, and publish this fictional family saga.

About The Authors


Sydney grew up reading any mystery she could get her hands on. From the dark world of Edgar Allan Poe to the lighthearted antics of Nancy Drew. Agatha Christie, Ellery Queen, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ngaio Marsh, Dorothy Sayers and Rex Stout quickly made their way into her home library. She currently lives in Lake Jackson, Texas with her husband and cat – a fussy guy named Poirot. (The cat, not the husband!)



Christopher’s business newsletter reignited his writing passion. He’s published monologues and lessons for Homeschool and Children’s Church markets, and dabbled in fiction. Chris served as his church’s interim drama director where he created short skits and videos. Chris writes screenplays in the faith and family genres. Two have won awards, and four shorts and one pilot have been produced. Chris moonlights as an actor.



Linda grew up in White Deer, Texas, where she won blue ribbons for storytelling. She still loves telling tales. A tornado destroyed the town when Linda lived there, and watching faith-based actions in rebuilding lives and homes after the tragedy influences her writing. Her historical fiction books for young readers and her squeaky-clean romances are available in print, e-book, and on audio.
