GIVEAWAY and Book Review:Journey to Love by Amanda Tero

24Now orphaned, Marie is swept miles away from the only life she knew to be sheltered by unknown guardians. Caught in the challenges of a new life, she cannot prevent changes from happening, but she can keep the Bowles and their friends at arm’s length. Or can she?
While things appear to transition smoothly on the outside, Marie struggles against the turmoil she faces on the inside. She sees something in the Bowles and her new friends that she had never experienced before…but should she trust what the preacher is teaching when it goes against everything she had accepted as truth? Is God really a God of love? If He is, then is Marie willing to accept it?
Follow Marie as she begins the journey to love.

Easter is just around the corner and as we reflect on God’s amazing and undeserving love for us, I want to share with you a book that captures that thought so beautifully. I’ll be giving away a copy of the book so be sure to catch the details at the bottom.  

What I Loved: Amanda has a way of sharing the love of Christ in all of her writings. The message is very clear and yet the stories are very real. And this was certainly true of Journey to Love. This sweet novella packed a powerful gospel punch as Marie overcomes the obstacles of a hard past and a cold religion.
Journey to Love is the first story in the Orphan Train series and I’m looking forward to future stories from this author.

Rating and Recommendation: I’m giving Journey to Love 5 stars and recommending it to both the young and old who enjoy warm-hearted Christian fiction.

  1. Romans 8:39 – neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    This is one of my favorites!

    No need to enter me in the giveaway. I own a Kindle copy of Amanda’s book. Just wanted to share a favorite Bible verse

  2. Romans 5:8 (KJV)
    But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

  5. My favorite verse is Romans 8:28: “And we know that all things work together for good, for those who love God and are the called according to His purpose.” That is what I hold on to, especially when bad things happen.

  6. I, too will say Romans 8:28: “And we know that all things work together for good, for those who love God and are the called according to His purpose.” Even when we don’t understand the situation, just trust, that if we love God, He will see us through.
