It was announced yesterday that The Silver Suitcase by Canadian author Terrie Todd has won the 2017 Word Award for Best Historical Novel.

The Word Awards are awards by The Word Guild, and were established to encourage the pursuit of excellence in the art, craft, practice, and ministry of writing and help to raise the profile of Canadian writers who are Christian. The Word Guild is an association of Canadian writers, editors, speakers, publishers, booksellers, librarians, and other Christian individuals who are invested in or employed in media.
