Award Winning Author ~ Jody Hedlund ~

Jody Hedlund's debut novel "The Preacher's Bride" caught my attention last year when I was looking for a sample of Historical Fiction to learn of the genre. I was unsure whether my own novel in progress would fall into that category. I began reading and soon forgot that I was doing research for my own work and totally fell into the era and the land that Jody wrote about. Her story completely wrapped me up in this depiction of life in the 1600's in Bedford, England. If you love Historical Romance, you will be blown away by "The Preacher's Bride". This book has won the following awards:

1st place in the Award of Excellence
1st place in Inspirational Reader's Choice Award
Finalist in the Carol Awards

Jody has been busy with another novel of the same genre. "The Doctor's Lady" will be released in September 1, 2011. And I can't wait to snuggle up with another of her books. This story takes place in New York in the 1800's.

"They vowed to keep their marriage in name only.
But when the unexpected happens on the grueling journey west . . .
Their carefully constructed partnership will be put to the ultimate test."
