Lori Copeland in her new book, “The Preacher’s Lady book coverThe Preacher’s Lady” Book One in the Sugar Maple Hearts series published by Harvest House Publishers takes us into the life of Elly Sullivan.

From the Back Cover:   In the first book of the Sugar Maple Hearts series, acclaimed author Lori Copeland spins a tale of hope, understanding, and faith when God seems silent.

It’s 1884, and Elly Sullivan works on her family cranberry farm in Wisconsin. She’s pledged her unending love to Bo Garrett.

At seventeen, Bo rides off for a month–just a month–to see a little of the world before he settles down with Elly. He falls in with the wrong people and the wrong life. His promises to Elly and the Lord are forgotten in a misspent youth. Eight years too late, he returns, having come to the end of himself and rededicated his life to God.

Can Bo convince Elly they were meant to be together despite all the bumps in their path?

This is the first time that I have been treated to the setting of rural Wisconsin, with the cranberry farms and cattle ranches in 1884. Just for the setting alone this book is worth the read. Then there is the need for forgiveness. Bo, without question, hurt Elly and she doesn’t trust or believe him that he has changed. I think this is an incredible story with these really touching human themes. Elly, Bo and Adele are really marvelous characters that you just fall in love with and root for them all through the book. And did I mention that this is a romance? I enjoyed this book a lot and am looking forward to the next book in this series.
