Editorial Reviews

Idaho - -- Lynda M. Nelson
A Greater Love provides a powerful glimpse into a world rarely seen from the comforts of our plush existence. Rachel opens our eyes, hearts, and souls to a more Christlike view of the plight of homeless children. I really enjoyed the story.
-- Lynda M. Nelson, author of the best-selling book The Little Red Buckets
Utah - James Michael Pratt
A wonderful read. Rachel Ann Nunes is a truly gifted writer. If you care about love, enjoy being entertained, and want to be carried into a world of drama and inspiration you must read A Greater Love.
-- James Michael Pratt, New York Times best-selling author of The Last Valentine
Utah - Kenneth R. Tarr
In many ways A Greater Love reminds me of Oliver Twist and David Copperfield. It is one of the few novels which have brought tears to my eyes.
-- Kenneth R. Tarr, author of The Last Days Volume I: The Gathering Storm

Meet the Author

Rachel Ann Nunes learned to read when she was four, beginning a lifetime fascination with the written word. She avidly devoured books then and still reads everything she can lay hands on, from children's stories to science articles. She began writing in the seventh grade and is now the author of thirty-six published books, including the popular Ariana series and the picture book Daughter of a King. Her most recent novels are Final Call (An Autumn Rain Novel), Tell Me No Lies, and Before I say Goodbye.

Rachel and her husband, TJ, are the parents of three boys and four girls. Rachel loves camping with her family, traveling and meeting new people, and, of course, writing. As a stay-at-home mother of seven, it isn't easy to find time to write, but she will trade washing dishes or weeding the garden for an hour at the computer any day! Her only rule about writing is to never eat chocolate at the computer. "Since I love chocolate and writing," she jokes, "my family might never see me again." Rachel writes Monday through Friday in a home office, often with a child on her lap. She takes frequent breaks from writing to build Lego towers, practice reading, or go swimming with the kids.

    "A Greater Love' is a very touching story at the
    Holiday time of the year or at anytime.
    This is a touching, bittersweet tale of a couple,
    who after several years of marriage are childless
    - one by choice, the other because of the spouse's choice.
    It causes a major problem in their marriage.
    This is also a story about two young children, orphaned
    through the death of their parents and given to an alcoholic
    aunt to raise.
    So many different status's in life, with so much prejudice.
    The story portrays the emotional and physical difficulties
    different people experience in the separate "walks" of life.
    Each have their own challenges and sufferings.
    What an inspirational tale of survival, suffering, acceptance,
    and love. It also offers a message of forgiveness and humility.
    The story spans several months but it is at Christmastime and
    New Years it concludes.
    This would be a wonderful story to share with the whole family.
    It is predictable but wonderfully so.
