Historical Fiction

Date Published: 1/18/2024

Narrator: Deborah Balm

Run Time: 15h 30 min



It is 741. Only one thing stands between Charles the Hammer and the throne—he's dying. Despite his best efforts, the only thing to reign after Charles's death is chaos. Son battles son, Christianity battles paganism, and Charles's daughter flees his court for an enemy's love.

Based on a true story, Anvil of God is a whirlwind of love, honor, sacrifice, and betrayal that follows a bereaved family's relentless quest for power and destiny.



A thoughtful historical read with a wonderful setting that the author stays true to.

The characters make this novel and reinforce the pragmatic view that while we can control little that happens in life, we always determine what our response will be.

This is one of those stories that reaches you as you're listening and the production only heightens the experience.
