For those of you who started at the beginning of the hunt, congratulations! You’ve reached the final stop! If you’re just joining in now, that’s perfectly fine—start here, and work your way around the circle.

Welcome, Lisa Tawn Bergren!


I’m so excited to introduce multi-published author (and I do mean multi) Lisa Tawn Bergren. Not only is she the mastermind of the Christian Fiction Scavenger Hunt, but she shares my love for travel and history.

Lisa T. Bergren is an award-winning, best-selling writer of over forty books in many genres, from children’s picture books to adult nonfiction. But her happy place is writing novels. You can find her on the web at LisaBergren.com, Facebook.com/LisaTawnBergren, and Twitter.

 

Lisa’s newest novel, Glittering Promises, released October 1. Her popular Grand Tour series concludes as Cora Kensington journeys farther into Italy, wrestles with a terrible ultimatum from her father, and comes to terms with the Father who will never fail her.

America’s newest heiress must decide if her potential fortune is rationale enough to give up her freedom and all that God is leading her toward. And when her newly-discovered siblings are threatened with ruin, her quandary deepens. Then as Cora nears Rome, more journalists are track the news story of the decade—“Copper Cora,” the rags-to-riches girl—and want to know more about her family and the men vying for her attention. Meanwhile, a charming Italian countess decides that if Cora isn’t going to claim Will’s heart, she might just try…

Exclusive from Lisa Tawn Bergren!

Since my current Wings of the Nightingale series is set in Italy, I was thrilled to see the Italian connection with Lisa’s book and article. Make sure to read all the way to the end to see how you can win a “Taste of Italy” CD, with authentic Italian music and Italian recipes from Gourmet magazine!

Top 10 Places to See in Rome…with Some Advice on Particulars

At the Borghese Gardens

I’ve been blessed enough to go to Rome three times, and the last time, I spent ten days there with my daughter, Emma—a special treat. You could spend WEEKS in this city, but if you’re like most people and only have a few days, go armed with this knowledge, as you tour:

1) The Forum/Palatine Hill: Go with a good guide and a picture book showing how it once was, or it will make no sense.

Piazza Navona


2) The Pantheon: Especially eerie-cool at night, when you can spot the moon through the giant oculus in the ceiling.

3) The Colosseum: Book a tour (we went with Dark Tours) that includes the hypogeum (the “basement,” not open to the general public). Gives you extra perspective to the grand, old structure to walk where the gladiators walked.

4) Galleria Borghese & the Borghese Gardens: Rent a cute little cart to ride around the vast gardens—romantic for couples or a fun respite for kids!

5) The Sistine Chapel: Gaze upon it with the perspective that it was painted by many (not just Michelangelo) and was there to undergird papal authority.

6) Piazza Navona: Grab a gelato after dinner and stroll along the best public square in Rome. Lined with palaces and studded with some of the loveliest fountains in the city, you can watch street performers and artists at their work.

At the top of the Vittorio Emanuel Monument

7) The Catacombs of San Callisto: It’s a bus ride out of town, but it’s very cool to see Rome’s first Christian cemetery; it has four levels and features crypts for popes and saints.

8) The Appian Way on a Sunday (Via Appia Antica): It’s closed to all traffic besides tour buses, and you can rent bikes and take a leisurely ride.

9) Trevi Fountain: Go very early in the morning or very late at night to avoid the obnoxious masses of people, and a higher population of pickpockets. With your back to the fountain, toss a coin with your right hand, over your left shoulder, if you want to return to the Eternal City (Or keep your money for more gelato. You’ll need it.

10) Vittorio Emmanuel Monument: Ignore what’s down below; pay the 7 Euros to ride to the top and take in one of the best views of the city; it lends great perspective on how vast the city is, where the walls are, etc.

You can purchase Lisa Tawn Bergren’s novel, Glittering Promises, at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, ChristianBook.com, or at your local bookstore.

    Is the Trevi Fountain the one featured in the cute movie with Josh Duhamel? I can’t even decide which one of these sites I’d like to see most. I just want to get to Europe some day!

    Niki – I’m afraid I don’t know the movie – anyone able to help me out? It’s a gorgeous fountain – but Lisa’s right about the crowds – it’s hard to get close, and all the pictures I took are full of tourists 🙂 And thanks for subscribing to my newsletter!

    The Movie is When In Rome. I love that movie, so romantic. I would love to visit the fountain and the river walk. I’m participating in the Scavenger Hunt and am a subscriber.

    The Appian Way on Sunday. It sounds so relaxing. I love to take walks. I bet the landscape is beautiful. Thank you for taking a part in the scavenger hunt. I have really enjoyed it and have met a lot of new authors.

  5. Tina Turpin

    I was blessed to be able to visit Italy with my daughter several years ago. My favorite place was Assisi, but that’s not on your list. 🙂 I would like to revisit the Sistine Chapel and really take my time there. Looking forward to reading your stories, since I love all things Italy and would love to go back again, even if only in a story! tinaturpin@hotmail.com

    • Sarah Sundin

      I didn’t see Assisi either (joining Lisa in wistful stare) – and I agree about wanting more time in the Sistine Chapel – SO much to see. And then your neck hurts.

    The Sistine Chapel. When I was there, it was going under restoration. Most of the paintings were being restore to its original form and I had to buy the book of what was, is, and will be. This is history.

      The Forum is fascinating, but I agree with Lisa about needing a good guidebook – nothing is labeled, and you can easily get confused. Especially when it’s hot and your teenage children want to eat 🙂 Not that I have experience with that or anything….

    I would go to both the Catacomb’s and along the Apian Way. Gosh, I’d have to go to all but I have studied Christian History with my kids and so want to go and see!

    Vittorio Emmanuel Monument, absolutely. I wonder if one could ride to the top at night. What a view it must be! I would ride in the day too, I could see much more during the day, I think it must be wonderful to see it at night. Am I wrong? Thank you so much for being a part of this Scavenger Hunt!

    I would love to go back to Italy. Having read Tracy Higley’s book about Pompeii recently, I’d like to spend more time there. Anywhere in Rome, the sunflower fields in Tuscany, anywhere there’s good pasta, pizza, and of course gelato.

      We loved Pompeii! My husband especially – he must have taken 200 photos there! And I’m with you on the subject of pasta, pizza, and gelato 🙂

  41. LeAnne Bristow

    I got to go to Rome once, but I was only there 2 days :(. I loved the Colosseum! Unfortunately I went to the Trevi Fountain at the most crowded part of the day and were swamped by people wanted us to pay them to take a picture for us (with our own camera). It totally ruined the experience!

  42. LadySaotome

    Sorry if this is a duplicate – I’m not sure if my comment went through? My family lived in Italy for several years when I was a child but the closest we ever got to Rome was changing planes. I would enjoy visiting the Piazza Navona. kawaii[dot]katers[at]gmail[dot]com

    I have been to the Trevi Fountain, walked around the outside of the Colosseum because it was closed when we got there ( I was disappointed about that), Sistine Chapel and around the Vatican. I didn’t have enough money to eat all the gelato I wanted but my favorite of the ones I tried was pistachio! After eating gelato American ice cream lost it’s taste to me and it was a LOOOONG time before I started eating it again. Gelato just doesn’t compare and I would rather have that than American ice cream!!! If I go back to Italy, I want to see the inside of the Colosseum and the basement.

    • Sarah Sundin

      Mmmm…gelato….

      We had problems seeing some sites in Rome too – the Colosseum/Forum/Palatine Hill sites were closed for a strike (!) – so we did the Vatican that day instead – and did the other sites the next day. You definitely have to be flexible when sight-seeing in Italy 🙂

  48. Claudia Davis

    I would love to see any part of Italy, but probably the Piazza Navona would be the place I’d go first! I am a new subscriber, but not new to your books. I enjoy them immensely and have introduced my oldest daughter to them. Your writing is superb! So good, in fact, that I find myself getting frustrated with some of the characters because they don’t do what I think they ought (Melly from With Every Letter, in particular she was so insecure!) and realize that the reason I am so concerned with them is that you have made them so real that I cannot help but care! I do love them! Thank you for writing such great stories!

    There are two sites I would most like to see, the first being the Sistine Chapel for it’s total beauty and the second being the Colosseum. I have seen a special on the hypogeum and the building itself is a marvel. There is another building I would like to visit that you do not mention and that is the Baths of Diocletian. Any kind of history interests me, and when I can find a book to read that includes factual history and fiction, I am a happy reader.

    I haven’t even left the U.S. so it would all be new to me. Since I love history so much I can’t imagine picking just ONE site out of all those, and many more, mentioned. I would want to see as much of everything as I could!

    Thank you ladies for taking part in the Scavenger Hunt and thank you Sarah for hosting a giveaway.

    Blessings to you both!

      Thanks, “old” subscriber 🙂 The nice thing is that if you go…you don’t have to pick just one 🙂

    I’m sure each of those places would be wonderful, but if I had the opportunity to choose, I would probably pick either the Sistine Chapel or the Catacombs. Those would both be absolutely incredible experiences!

    The Sistine Chapel is probably a given, but the catacombs and colosseum would be must see’s for us, too. I am a new subscriber. So glad you’re part of this scavenger hunt.

    After reading Lisa’s The Gifted series and The River of Time series I would love to see Italy…any part of Italy! I’ve also always wanted to see the Parthenon in Greece–I used to live in Nashville and went to Parthenon out there, but I’d still like to see the original, ruins or not!
    I’ve just signed up for your newsletter and look forward to reading your books as well!

    My name is Nicki and the Sistine Chapel was my favorite but I enjoyed all of Rome. My son did also when he went 20+ years later. My email is nickiwalker@windstream.net and I’m new to you. I’ve enjoyed the scavenger hunt. Please do it again.

    They all sound amazing, but I think I would like to see The Catacombs of San Calisto the most. 🙂

  83. Reuben & Amanda Rog

    I would love to see Galleria Borghese & the Borghese Gardens. I love gardens and it just sounds wonderful!

    All the places sound neat, but the Catacombs of San Callisto sound especially intriguing. My email is jmsfarmgirl[at]hotmail[dot]com. I am a new newsletter subscriber. Thanks!

    I’ve never thought of going to Rome and all the places sound intriguing. Guess I would start at The Appian Way on a bicycle! My email is delores7faith(at)yahoo (dot) com

    Enjoyed your post and will check out your books!
