I have always loved books, and as a Christian, I saw a gap in the market for excellent, relevant novels for children/teens that were written from a Christian perspective. So I set up Dernier Publishing! You can read more about me and Dernier on the ‘About Us’ page, but if you’re interested in Christian books for children aged from around eight to fourteen, please do take a look at what we have currently on the market.

You can find out more about our books on the Dernier Publishing website, or you can order them from any bookshop anywhere. 🙂

BBG4FCover06Beech Bank Girls, A Time Remembered
by Eleanor Watkins

This fabulous book for girls sees the Beech Bank Girls finding the old diary of a fourteen-year-old girl, and discovering that the Lord can help them whatever they are facing, just as He did for Grace one hundred years ago at the start of WW1.

I loved the bit about Grace’s journal, it was really sad when Will went to war. It is definitely a brilliant book, and I would recommend it to anyone.” – Naomi

A Pennyworth of PeppermintsA Pennyworth of Peppermints
by Mary Weeks Millard

An exciting spy story, set in the First World War. While collecting driftwood on their local beach
in Dorset, Ben and Sidney find a message in a bottle washed up on the shore. The message is written in rhyme – is it just a poem? Through a series of adventures, the boys, along with
Sidney’s sister, Vera, discover that there is much more to the message than meets the eye . . .
This delightful story captures a little of what life was like for families living through the Great War, and how faith in God can make a difference, whatever the circumstances.
I really enjoyed this story, especially the mystery of the poem. I also learn what life was like for people in World War 1.’ – Abi
