Press Release:

Author Rachel Norby announces the release of her new Christian romance novel, “The Good One.”

“So there are a few good ones left in this world.” At least that’s what Mitch thinks when he meets Natalie, a girl much different than the ones he has dated in the past. This one seems to be the complete package—someone even his mother, who died from cancer three years before, would have approved. Starting with their first date, Mitch begins to fall for Natalie but can’t quite shake the feeling that she is hiding something from him. With her evasive answers and her ability to deflect any personal questions, Mitch begins to sense that Natalie’s past is keeping her from fully living in the present. Though he tries to give her the time and space to tell him on her own accord, he becomes increasingly frustrated by her inability to share the deepest parts of herself with him. If love requires trust, then why doesn’t Natalie seem to trust him?

Through a series of flashbacks, readers of “The Good One” begin to piece together the mystery of Natalie’s past that has imprisoned her for over three years. The final question of whether or not Natalie is brave enough to face her past rests not solely on her but the faith and courage of all those around her who dare to fight for the truth.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at, or by visiting or
