Overview

I have been a writer and publisher for many years, but writing a novel was completely a new adventure for me. It began as an idea I had while confined for 143 days in two St. Louis hospitals.

Upon returning home, I found that my wife had prepared a rehabilitation room for me equipped with a new computer and DSL connection next to my hospital bed for my entertainment. To keep from feeling sorry for myself and to help ease the discomfort I had, I began to write what I had envisioned months before.

For 40 years I had been involved in roles that brought me into contact with so many ministers and church leaders. Often many godly people had betrayed these ministers and caused detours in their ministries, missions, and even marriages. There was unhappiness and confusion and a desire by wives to leave the fishbowl life. Some ministers left while others feared to even enter.

I have known the heartbreak of missionaries hurt as their children were submitted to other cultures and who had difficulty because of their restrictions or inability to rejoin our American way.

I am assured that God has never made a mistake in His call. The proof comes from the hundreds of clergy, missionaries and their families that I have seen fulfilled to great satisfaction as they remained faithful and completed the decision of His will for their lives.

While the characters in this book are fictional, their struggles and successes are represented of real lives that I have been privileged to be a part of for so many years.

It reaches into so many genres: Romance, war, ministry, missions, relationship, history, and reward. It will touch your heart.

Just as I enjoyed writing this novel for my therapy, it is my hope that you will feel my love and empathy for others whose joy needs lifting.

Editorial Reviews

Elizabeth Hodges
Being an avid reader, I was thrilled when Dr. Loveless shared his book with me. Amidst the hindrances to the call of God on one's life, Angelika remains firm in her commitment to follow the Lord. God rewards her efforts and gives her the desires of her heart. It is not an easy road He asks her to walk. Cultural issues, military espionage and suspense line the road. Yet it is obvious that the "sacrifice" of serving the Lord is a privilege. This is a must read....and I anxiously await the sequel.&
