New Mercies

This story has been touted by readers as “a sweet and gentle romance” that “catches your heart”. An inspirational tale about the stigma Christians face following a divorce, particularly should they consider remarriage. In New Mercies, Dolores Hansen discovers the mercy and forgiveness of God in the face of her own guilt over her divorce and the gossip her friendship with new pastor Christopher Tanner stirs among her church’s parishioners.

Description

The church they both love drew them together…
Will it also tear them apart?

Dolores Hansen’s life is crumbling around her. Her little son has been diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, and her marriage has fallen apart as a result. Forced to return to the small town of Meadowbrook to live with her parents, Dolores feels like a failure and a burden on everyone, and must find a way to stand on her own feet.

New minister Chris Tanner is dynamic from the pulpit but painfully shy one-on-one. He is touched by the plight of this young woman and her sick child and vows to do anything he can to help her. As he gets to know her he finds his own courage growing from her strength.

The two soon become close friends, perhaps more than friends. But no good could ever come from a relationship between a divorced woman and a minister; especially in a town as gossip-ridden as Meadowbrook. Could it?

Writing has long been a passion of mine. I began writing poems and short stories at the age of 7. I live in picturesque East Texas with my husband of 27 years and four of my children. My grown son and his wife live nearby and visit often with my two grandbabies, whom I adore. If the kids and grandkids didn’t make my home wild enough, we have a household full of cats (7 at last count). My blog Julia’s Ramblings talks about my writing career as well as my crazy home life.

I work at a nearby university as a learning technologist, where I provide assistance and professional development to faculty on online course development and instructional technology. I am pursuing a Ph.D. in learning technologies. In my other blogs, IDT Talk and Tech Learning Bridge, I discuss topics of interest to instructional designers and educators who work with technology.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading inspirational romance and mystery stories, sewing, and cooking.
