Publisher's Description

Acclaimed author Lori Copeland spins a tale of hope, understanding, and faith when God seems silent.

It's 1855, 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 having rededicated his life to God.

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

    Lori Copeland in her new book, The Preachers 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.

    Its 1884, and Elly Sullivan works on her family cranberry farm in Wisconsin. Shes pledged her unending love to Bo Garrett.

    At seventeen, Bo rides off for a monthjust a monthto 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 doesnt 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.

    Bo Garrett and Elly Sullivan are in love and dont care who knows it. They are young teenagers and cant wait to start their married lives together when Bo turns seventeen. When Bo turns seventeen, however, he tells Elly he feels restless and wants to see a little of the country before settling down and farming cranberries. Elly understands and lets Bo go after he assures her that he will be back in about a month. Seven years later Bo arrives home, but only because his fathers health is failing and he needs Bos help harvesting the cranberry crop.

    Elly tells herself she has moved on and accepts a proposal from another, but cant make herself set a wedding date. She is angry and hurt with how Bo has treated her and wants nothing to do with him. Bo has returned a changed man, dedicating his life to serving God. What has happened over the last seven years? Elly has railed against God in her hurt while Bo embraced Him at his lowest point. As the story progresses, Elly and Bo cant help but spend some time together as they are next door neighbors and their families have been close for over twenty years. Elly sees that Bo truly is changed, but can she truly forgive him in her heart instead of just saying the words after all Bo has put her through?

    This is a sweet love story that showcases the very real human reactions to fear, loneliness, love, death, grace, compassion and more. I always know Lori will produce a book worth reading and this is no exception. There isnt much action or suspense, but there are examples of how to not become bitter by holding on to the past, helping others and showing mercy. The book is short, easy to read and uplifting.

    The Preachers Lady

    Lori Copeland

    Book Summary: It's 1855, 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 having rededicated his life to God. Can Bo convince Elly they were meant to be together despite all the bumps in their path?

    Review: I just love the flow that Lori Copeland writes with. She is so gifted, that is why I continue to read her books. They are so real and also they speak to something that is decreasing in Christian Books - Jesus. She is believable with her story telling and even when the topic is hard to deal with she manages to make it empathetic and interesting. I really enjoyed these characters. I did not like Gideon very much and that was OK. I was with Elly about the geese and I have a problem with things like that too. Bo was almost too good true. Although, I did not like him at the very beginning and I really liked the changed Bo. Elly was great, although the work that girl did was overload. I kept thinking that I needed a rest after she rested. While there was great sadness, the overall tone was realistic. The book flowed so smoothly that it was a quick and enjoyable read!

    I would like to thank Net Galley and Harvest House Publishers for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

    The Preachers Lady was sort of a hit and miss for me. The story started off with a bit of quirky humor, and for the most part I enjoyed it. I loved the idea of the book, but it was hard to fully connect with everything. As hard as I wanted to, I couldnt get into the feel of it. I was a little aggravated with the characters at certain points in the story, which made it hard for me to really connect with them. But if you're looking for something light and quick to read, than I recommend this book.

    Elly has had her heart broken possibly beyond repair. She is determined to put her past behind her and look to her future. Elly has a hard time forgiving and understanding a God who can be so unloving. When Elly is faced with her most painful heartache will she be able to make the best decisions?

    Bo has lived with his share of regrets, has he hurt the love of his life beyond healing? Now that he has turned his life back over to God will his past continue to be a weight or will true forgiveness come?

    This book is about love, family, forgiveness, wrong choices and God's timing. It has a great story line, even if you want to shake some of the characters once in a while.

    I was given a copy of this novel from net galley for my honest opinion.
