(April 29, 2014)On Monday, April 28, the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) announced the winners of the 2014 Christian Book Awards at an ECPA Awards & Anniversary banquet, which took place at Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Falling into Place (Baker Books; ISBN 9780801015380, hardcover; ISBN 9780801017056, paperback; ebook ISBN 9781441242730; $17.99) by Hattie Kauffman was selected as the winner in the New Author category.

Hattie Kauffman made history as the first Native American journalist to ever file a report on a national network evening news broadcast and has over two decades of experience as an on-camera correspondent and news anchor. A speaker and writer, Hattie is a member of the Nez Perce Tribe of Idaho and lives in Seattle, Washington. In Falling into Place, Kauffman weaves a story both heartbreaking and redemptive as she candidly shares the experiences that made her into a perceptive and award-winning newswoman. Kauffman’s life is an inspiring account of the Holy Spirit’s transforming power and a true testament to God’s goodness.
