A Widow’s Hope

Amish fiction, Love Inspired Books Comments: 25

I9781335509642‘m so happy to share with you the cover of my first Harlequin/Love Inspired book. Isn’t it beautiful?

And here’s the back cover blurb:

His scars are visible.
Hers are hidden…
Indiana Amish Brides match

After tragedy claimed her husband’s life and her son’s ability to walk, Hannah King doesn’t want a new man. She has her family, a home and mounting debts. Scarred Amish bachelor Jacob Schrock offers Hannah the job she desperately needs. But while Hannah helps Jacob resolve his accounting issues, can she and her little boy also heal his wounded heart?

A Widow’s Hope will release in paperback on July 17th and in ebook on August 1st. Love Inspired books are usually available at your local Walmart or Target, as well as Christian bookstores. If you’re familiar with LI books, you know that they are faith driven fiction with a happily ever after ending. Oh, and did I mention they’re fun to write? My Indiana Bride series will be set in Goshen, Indiana. I can even tell you the title for book 2–Amish Christmas Memories. Comment below with whether you’ve tried any Love Inspired books, and I’ll draw one winner to receive my latest release. Our winner from the last post was Birdie C.

    LI, ie “Love Inspired” books are great! Not filled with smutty language, or suggestive imagery, a great read. I especially like the SUSPENSE INTRIGUE LI books.

    Once I am finished reading them, I drop them off at the local swim pool book exchange. They do not stay on the counter very long-grab and go!

    Recently, one of the local church libraries in my county in OREGON, closed its doors. I was able to pack up two whole shelves of LI books from which I “stock” the book exchange with 5-10 titles each week.

    I have not tried any of the LI titles. I will have to look for them. Yes, I am a widow, but my hope is in Jesus.

    Almost every book I have read for the past few years has been published by LI! I know I can be assured the story will be inspiring, clean and a good love story.

    A Widow’s Hope sounds wonderful, can’t wait to read it. I have been reading Love Inspired books since 2007. Of course, the Amish ones are my favorites. I am so glad you will be adding to their books! The book cover is very nice. And, I am from central Indiana.
