The Preacher's Bride by Jody Hedlund

I'm so excited to share this new find with you! The Preacher's Bride by Jody Hedlund is a gem that you're going to have to put on your wish list this season. It will be released by Bethany House Publishers in Oct 2010. I enjoyed everything about this book from the art on the cover to the surprise in the Author's Note at the end of the story. And again, a wonderful FIRST NOVEL from a new author to watch for.

Thank you, Jody, for this CLEAN READ.

About the book:

She was determined to serve a wounded family.
He was determined to preach the truth.
Neither expected to fall in love.
In 1650s England, a young Puritan maiden is on a mission to save the baby of her newly widowed preacher—whether her assistance is wanted or not.
Always ready to help those in need, Elizabeth ignores John’s protests of her aid. She’s even willing to risk her lone marriage prospect to help the little family.
Yet Elizabeth’s new role as housekeeper takes a dangerous turn when John’s boldness from the pulpit makes him a target of political and religious leaders. As the preacher’s enemies become desperate to silence him, they draw Elizabeth into a deadly web of deception. Finding herself in more danger than she ever bargained for, she’s more determined than ever to save the child—and man—she’s come to love.

Jody is giving away a copy of her book on her blog this week (enter by Sept 30th) HERE.
