ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
My career began at Kensington Publishing, then Wild Rose Press released what will likely be my last secular novel, With This Kiss. This book is very dear to my heart, because, in a way, it memorializes the life of my grandmother, Rachel Alfano. She was a feisty, loving Italian. Back in the day, folks came to her deli in East Rutherford "from the City" (New York, of course!) to get her pepperoni, or purchase her hand-made sausage and pastas. Life and times at 82 Mozart Street are engraved upon my heart, and precious to me. What better place to set a romance?
Now, I'm called to write 'Faith-affirming fiction' (TM). Christian inspirational romance, and Christian themed fiction, is something that both as a reader, and writer, I feel called upon by God to enjoy and create.
This segment of my journey began when I was lucky enough to win a writing contest sponsored by White Rose Publishing that led to the publication of my Christian inspy debut, Hearts Crossing. This humble, heart-felt novella went on to become a series...and an Amazon best seller! A Face in the Clouds, a short story spin-off of Woodland, is also part of my 'best seller' portfolio. What a blessing!
ABOUT THE BOOK
For Better or Worse
But what happens when their rock-solid marriage begins to crumble under the weight of an unexpected and powerful temptation? How does love survive when its foundation is shaken?
'Til Death Do Us Part
When human frailty and the allure of sin deal a harsh blow to their relationship, it will take more than love to mend the shattered trust and heartbreak. It will take a lifetime of devotion.
If you would like to read the first chapter of Devotion, go HERE.
It seems so appropriate to review this week during Valentine's week. A time when love is in the air and people are thinking of romance. Of course, marriage is about more than love and romance isn't it. It is about devotion. The commitment it takes for a marriage to survive.
Kellen and Juliet, the couple in this book, face what every marriage eventually faces. Temptation and crisis. Maybe not every marriage faces it to the extent that this couple does, but every marriage faces these types of moments. These are the times that decide whether you really believe those vows you made on your wedding day. For better for worse... Do you have the devotion it takes?
Thanks to CFBA for providing this complimentary copy for the purpose of my review.
