Meet me on the porch by Erin Stevenson

  Brynne Lockwood has come home to Brattleboro, Vermont after a humiliating job loss. She’s weary and broken, and still hasn’t truly forgiven herself for a former unhealthy relationship with long-lasting consequences. She doesn’t believe that she deserves anything good and can’t imagine that God could ever use her.  After recovering from a shattering loss, Pastor Adam Johnston is on his way to a new assignment. A mix-up takes him and his baby daughter to beautiful southern Vermont. If he stays, he’ll face opposition, but God has prepared his heart for ministry, and he’s committed to serving there.  Adam and Brynne connect quickly and unexpectedly, but circumstances demand that they be cautious.  Now, you are invited to join Adam and Brynne on the porch at her grandparents’ home—a special place where you'll experience their joy as Adam and Brynne build a friendship rooted in Biblical principles, find healing for their wounds, and discover God’s plan for their lives.    Pelican    Am

Though the mountains be shaken by Kathleen Neely

  Though the Mountains be Shaken: Amid a troubled marriage, Kate Dunbar begins to have symptoms of a neurological disorder. She and her husband are separated when she receives a diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease. I’ve wanted to write this story for some time since I also live with Parkinson’s. Her symptoms start similar to my own and progress quickly.
