We’re a week away from the launch for Hope Alone! Be sure to pre-order your Kindle version, or set a reminder to order the paperback next Monday. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at the first chapter. Happy reading!
Okay, Faith Alone fans! Now that the paperback is available both on Barnes and Noble and on Amazon (and ranked in the top 10 bestsellers for Christian Contemporary Fiction as of this morning) it’s time for a contest! Post a picture of your copy of the book (ebooks are fine, so long as the screen is visible enough to tell it’s Faith Alone) on Facebook and be sure to tag my personal or author account so I can enter you in the contest! You could win one of the two beautiful plaques pictured here, handmade by a talented local friend. One prize will be awarded for the most creative picture (as judged by my launch team members), and one will be a random drawing from all entries. The contest runs through Wednesday, May 15, and entrants may submit one picture a day through the submission period.
In the meantime, here’s what other readers are saying about Faith Alone:
This is a sweet Christian novel, full of realistic family drama. Faith Alone deals with controversial topics, but Meyer handles them well, and in a very faith-based manner. If you’re looking for a Christian book with good morals, this may be just what you need.
Ruth has done it again! Faith Alone is the compelling sequel to Grace Alone… It will draw you in from the first page, and yet, you won’t want to see it end. This is a thought-provoking, must-read book for Christians of all ages.
—Kristen Whirrett, Lutheran blogger at Joyfully Thriving
Faith Alone is one of the most heart-stopping, ground-breaking, truth-telling books I’ve read in a long time.
—Kellyn Roth, Reveries Co. founder and manager
This second book in the series is just as compelling as the first. Ruth writes about topics that face families in the church today. She addresses the issues realistically, but caring and compassionately. Her writing stirs emotions the entire time. It is a book you won’t want to put down.
—”Sandles,” Amazon customer
Get your copy of Faith Alone today, and be sure to enter the contest as well! Happy reading!
Here’s the latest on Faith Alone! The Kindle version is now available, and if you pre-ordered it, it should have been delivered by now. If you’re waiting on the paperback, hang tight just a bit longer. There are a few last-minute issues that popped up and I’m trying to get them ironed out as quickly as possible.

HAPPINESS JUST GOT COMPLICATED
Grace Neunaber has finally found happiness. After struggling for years as a single mother of four, she’s thrilled about her newfound faith and her marriage to a strong Christian man. But as David is added to their family of five, her enthusiasm is quickly dampened by her older children’s open hostility and resentment toward their new father.
For Grace’s daughter, Faith, having a principal for a step-dad is only one of the downsides. Her parents are nosy, restrictive, and most of all embarrassing. But Faith’s issues with her parents are quickly shoved aside when she’s faced with a decision that will change the course of her future.
Each member of the Neunaber family will have to rely on their faith in God if their strained relationships are going to knit them closer together instead of tear their family apart.
Faith Alone is now available for pre-order (Kindle version only)! Order today and your copy will be delivered to your device on Monday, April 22. Want a paperback copy instead? Mark your calendar and watch for future updates when it’s released on launch day. Three weeks and counting!
The start of summer is widely associated with Memorial Day, so by those standards, summer is here! And what better way to celebrate summer than by entering a summer reading program? Concordia Publishing House is sponsoring a reading program for the entire family–adults and kids alike. The title is “Read Like a Lutheran,” and they have lists of books for each age group, and your name will be entered for a prize when you reach a certain number of points! I’m already signed up, as are my kids. If you have any number of CPH books around your house, you may already have enough to attain your goal. Arch books for the kids, for example, or (ahem) Our Faith From A to Z all count. As for adults, Grace Alone is on the list! Check your church library or swap books with a friend if you’re looking to expand your repertoire. What a great opportunity to curl up with some books! Happy reading!
