Lori Copeland in her new book, “The Preacher’s 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. It’s 1884, 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 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 doesn’t 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.

The Preacher’s 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.

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.

A sweet, inspirational historical romance! What do you do when life doesn't turn out the way you've planned and people betray your trust? Elly Sullivan finds herself trying to figure that out seven long years after she and the boy-next-door-first-love Bo Garrett come face to face again. Loved the setting of rural Wisconsin, with the cranberry farms and cattle ranches in the 1880's. They worked hard and faced a lot of difficulties with such positive attitudes and fortitude. The theme of forgiveness, for others and ourselves, was illustrated so well in Bo's life, as well as Elly's response to his return. I felt for her and shared the gamut of her emotions as she struggled with what was the best plan to take. Wish we all had such a faithful truth-telling friend like Adele to come alongside us, to listen and counsel. Recommend for fans of Christian historical romance fiction!

The Preacher's Lady is a story of young love, redemption, and forgiveness. Elly waits years for Bo's return but he is delayed by the pull of life's temptations. Elly has tried to soothe her heartache by accepting the love of another but she still struggles with the hurt and anger of being left behind. After seven years, Bo finally returns home to help his family and seek the forgiveness of his loved ones. The small town is filled with kids running free, busy bodies, quilting circles, and hard working people. Elly's story resonated with me because it can be hard to truly forgive as God requires. Lori Copeland highlights themes of God's grace and forgiveness as well as love and relationships. I requested this book through NetGalley in order to read and offer an honest review. The opinions expressed are my own.
