Product Description

Ainsley Meadows, raised by a hedonist mother who cycles through jobs and relationships like wrapping paper on Christmas morning, falls into a predictable and safe relationship with Richard, a self-absorbed, socialite psychiatrist. But as Ainsley's wedding nears, a battered woman and her child spark a long-forgotten dream, a hidden passion, one that threatens to change everything, including her fiance'. If she wants to embrace God's best and find lasting love, this security-seeking bride must follow God with reckless abandon and realize that marriage is beyond "I do."

Author/Artist Review

Author: Jennifer Slattery
Submitted: August 12, 2014

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I love to read almost as much as I love to write and always have a book lying on my bedstand and another ten or so waiting on my Kindle. I write what I like to call "missional romance" because I'm passionate about outreach, living out my calling, and encouraging others to do the same. I also write for Crosswalk.com and write and edit for an international ministry called Christ to the World Ministries that shares the gospel, via radio waves, with 32 countries. When I'm not writing or reading, you'll probably find me hanging out my husband of 19 years or perusing the mall with our teenaged daughter

    What was your motivation behind this project?  The theme for the novel--serving the local homeless--arose from my time as a homeless teenager, and the romance angle came from over a decade of serving beside my hubby. I love serving with him and find we complement each other perfectly! His strengths make up for my weaknesses and vice versa, plus, sharing a mission at home, in our community, and in our church gives us a great deal to talk--and pray!--about.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope people will prayerfully seek after and embrace their eternal purpose, because it is immensely fulfilling to do that which God created you to do.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  A driving theme in the novel is surrender. To discover God's best, Ainsley will have to surrender completely to Him. Though she longs to do this, the thought terrifies her because surrender means relinquishing control. As I wrote, I realized my actions can often be motivated by this same fear, but I also saw, through Ainsley's experiences, how wonderful it can be to just let go.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Francine Rivers has always been one of my favorite authors. I especially loved her Mark of the Lion series. Janet Oke was also a favorite. Now I'm a big Mary Conneally and Jenny B. Jones fan. Those girls are funny! And yet, they also write about some tough subjects like orphans, foster kids, and domestic violence.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Sure! I have another novel following this one, released by the same publisher. It's called "When Dawn Breaks" and is about a menopausal realtor displaced by a hurricane who encounters three children abandoned by their mother.
