ABOUT Lynn Squire

Lynn Squire
I’m an author that loves history and the Lord Jesus Christ, my Saviour. Not too unusual for a Christian writer. However, what is unique is that I grew up on a farm near Arrowwood, Alberta, Canada and now live in California with my husband and three kids—not in New York, Los Angeles, Sa More...



Joab Black and his wife Sarah overcame the worst of pioneer hardships in order to establish a prosperous farm in Alberta, Canada. But those challenges never prepared them for the tragedy they now faceda staggering loss and intense pain causing them to doubt everything they had ever believed. In the midst of their sorrow, even their closest friends interpret their sufferings as a result of God’s judgment. Has God abandoned them?

Sergeant Dixon, the local North West Mounted Police officer, investigates the events leading to the Blacks’ plight. While his work gives them a ray of hope, his probing into the activities of a certain stranger possibly connected to the case may cost him his job and even his life.

Inspired by the Biblical book of Job, this novel includes a Bible study exploring the perfection of God’s plan and the bounty of His love even in the most inexplicable and intense sufferings.

In Joab’s Fire, Lynn Squire tells the story of Job in a new setting—one that allowed me to relate to the story’s timeless themes in new ways. The accompanying discussion questions place the story firmly in context with the whole counsel of Scripture. Joab’s Fire eloquently displays the eternal truth that God’s light shines most brightly in darkness.

 Joab’s Fire illustrates how God uses setbacks and tragedies to work in our lives. In the study, Lynn uses scripture to allow God’s healing truth to seep into the hearts and minds of her reader, drawing them closer to the One who leads us not only to the top of the mountain, but through the valleys as well.

Like Job in the Old Testament, we wonder how such a good man as Joab Black could suffer so much. Then, through the darkness, we see God’s abiding grace.

Lynn’s writing beautifully portrays how our Heavenly Father raises His children from the ashes.

A compelling saga of faith in the midst of tragedy that will capture your heart and stir up new compassion for those who are suffering around you. I highly recommend this book!

Lynn is a master storyteller who weaves her love of Jesus Christ and the truth of His scripture throughout all her writing. Joab’s Fire will ignite a flame of hope and faith within you as you journey with Joab, his wife, and friends through countless tragedies and unimaginable heartache. This book and accompanying Bible study will challenge and encourage you to seek God in the midst of every storm.

Joab's Fire will stir your heart and soul as the NWMP officer seeks to find God's will for his life without realizing that is what he is seeking. Lynn Squire is one of the finest writers I've ever come in contact with.  Her writing mirror's her life as she writes for the Christian readers, unafraid to show her love and trust in the God she serves.
