Of all of my novels, perhaps the most personal to me is Beyond the Shadows: A Love Story . It’s the story of Deborah, a young widow, who unknowingly marries an alcoholic. RT Book Reviews gave it a Top Pick rating, and Francine Rivers called it: “Brave. Redemptive. A beautifully written story that will bring hope and healing to many.”
While the topic of alcoholism could sound a bit grim to you, what I wrote was a novel about love and hope. Because I’ve learned from my own experiences that no matter what is happening, Jesus is my hope and He loves me. I’ve learned that God is sovereign and I can trust Him with everything, including my heartaches and the most dire situations of life.
Beyond the Shadows was first published seven years ago. Eventually it went out of print. So you can imagine my delight to announce that it is now available for only $2.99 for both the Kindle and the Nook.
Not only that, but the unabridged audio version of the book, once only available through a rather expensive and obscure source, is now available via Amazon/Audible for a little over $18 as a digital download. (It’s also available on iTunes for just under $18, but I can’t link you to that.) Of all of my books that have been released in audio, this one is my favorite. The readers/actors are absolutely fabulous!!!
If you haven’t read Beyond the Shadows, I hope you’ll find an opportunity to do so. I think you’ll see why I feel so strongly about this story. If you have read it, you might want to pick up the digital copy just to have on hand. With the Kindle app, you can read it on your smartphone or iPad or computer as well as on your Kindle. I’m not as familiar with the Nook, but I think that’s a possibility for that version as well. And, of course, if you are as fond of listening to audio books as I am, you may want to go that route.
