I’m sharing today about Rachelle Rea Cobb’s third installment in her Steadfast Love series. The Sound of Emeralds is an inspirational historical romance set during the 16th century!
Rachelle is also the author of the first two books in the series, The Sound of Diamonds and The Sound of Silver. She has also written Write Well, a guide for writers. Last summer, she married a man with the same first name as the hero of the Steadfast Love series!
ABOUT The Sound of Emeralds
What once was blazing hatred has turned to lasting love, but could the union of a wild heart with that of a lady ever result in more than heartache?
With the help of an old friend with uncertain loyalties, Dirk inches ever closer to clearing his name. Gwyneth throws her faith into good tidings and the promise of a future as a family. But an old evil comes to call, just as tragedy rips apart a fledgling truce. Enemies from the past and grief for the future threaten to tear asunder what God had brought together…
As the date of Dirk’s trial approaches, his fate and his family hang in the balance. Will he be proven innocent of Gwyneth’s parents’ murders—or separated from her forever? How much pain does it take to erode a love steadfast?

Although I’m not usually drawn to stories specific to this time period, I was immediately pulled into and hooked by this particular book. WOW! I now realize I need to stretch my genre reach and enjoy the whole Steadfast Love series!
The Sound of Emeralds is genuinely well-written and historically significant with a carefully crafted faith message. An absorbing albeit emotionally-rough read. I found the emotional struggles and the push-pull of the love stories to be heartbreaking at times but it was worth the pain to reach the appropriate conclusion!
A five-star read wherein you’ll be glad you traversed the rough emotional terrain with Gwyneth and Dirk! ENJOY!
- When and where did you first get the idea for the Steadfast Love Series?
A song I was listening to on the radio inspired the title of the first book. So I wrote Diamonds, but when I finished it, I realized to my great frustration that the characters weren’t done with their story, even though I had been quite adamant that I would write a stand-alone novel. But the story wasn’t finished, so I kept writing.
- Readers often pick out favorite quotes from a novel. Do you have a favorite of your own from The Sound of Silver?
Yes! In fact, my friend Mindy, a calligrapher, even created a beautiful piece of art from one of my favorite quotes: “Within the pages of books one’s heart can be revealed.”
- Can you tell us what first drew you to writing Inspirational Historical Romance?
My first exposure to the genre came when I read Heartsong Presents novels when I was twelve. Those small books introduced me to how much I believe in the power of story, especially love stories set in times gone by.
- I saw on your website that you also write reviews, articles and offer editing services. What’s one of your favorite things beyond writing novels that you enjoy?
Editing is such fun! I daresay I enjoy editing a page full of my own (or others’!) words just as much as I enjoy splashing words onto a blank page. I recently released my first nonfiction book, Write Well, which is a short ebook designed as a guide writers!
