Sandy Snyder5 Stars Out Of 5January 13, 2009Sandy SnyderI think this book holds your interest from the beginning to the end. This is the first that I have read any of Susan Warner's books I am trying to increase my reading. I read Happily Ever After. I liked it so well that I ordered Tying the Knot & The perfect Match. (This was the rest of the series) ENJOY I did.

Tell us a little about yourself. Susan May Warren is the best-selling author of more than 20 novels and novellas with Tyndale, Barbour and Steeple Hill. A three time Christy award finalist, and three time winner of the Inspirational Readers Choice contest, Susan currently has over 500,000 books in print. A seasoned womens events speaker and writing teacher, shes taught at the American Christian Fiction Writers conference for the past three years, and she runs a fiction editing service mybooktherapy training writers how to tell a great story. After serving for eight years with her husband and four children as missionaries in Khabarovsk, Far East Russia she now writes full-time while her husband runs a hotel on Lake Superior in northern Minnesota.
What was your motivation behind this project? On March 1, 2002, at 1:00pm, three men broke into our high-rise apartment in Russia and brutally attacked me and my children. By the grace of God, our lives were spared and we were not terribly injured physically. But the masked attackers had left a deep spiritual and emotional wounds. We were sent to a trauma center for counseling for a month, then returned to Russia, our field of service, to compete our missionary term. Four months later, burned-out and spiritually empty, we packed our bags and returned to America for our scheduled one-year home service. I had no plans to return. Secretly, I harbored deep in my heart a resolve to never again set foot in Russia, with its many dangers. I had done eight hard years of service there and felt that I had given the best part of myself to a country that didnt care. And no one not even God was going to change my mind. Yes, Hed spared my life, but I had serious doubts I could ever trust Him again. But God knew better. Not only is He gentle, but He understands and can understand my pain and my questions. I dove into the Psalms, finding hope in Davids cries to the Lord and healing in his praise to the Almighty in the darkest hours. I observed Gods goodness to me, providing for my family needs in the past and present and I allowed myself to be embraced by the body of Christ, who loved us well. Finally, as time and distance began to heal me, I was able to look behind and see Gods grace embracing me every moment of the difficult journey. He reminded me that He would meet me in my future with the same abundance of grace. I wrote Anne and Noahs story while struggling through the dark night of the soul. Amazingly, many times I felt as though the words that appeared on the page were more for me than for Anne. I journeyed with Anne until I, too, could see God embracing me in the darkest hour. Her victory is mine.
