Legacy and Love by Paula Mowery

Back Cover Blurb:
The Prayer Shawl
Sean Holland is a magazine reporter always looking for the next story. Hope Weaver is a pediatric nurse who shares Christ through making prayer shawls. The shawls are just the touchy-feely story Sean needs, even though he’ll have to endure Hope’s strong Christian beliefs to get it. An unexpected connection brings them together as a couple. But, can they find love if they don’t share their faith?

Alex Lyndon’s life has been a series of fits and starts with no finishes. She finds herself jobless and divorced. Now her only family, Granny Olivia, is critically ill.

Chase Carson had to step into running the family business when his father died. The time is past due to visit Miss Olivia.

Alex and Chase must go on a treasure hunt. Will each find purpose and love for their lives in the process?

Read an Excerpt:

Music chimed from the organ.

I opened my bulletin to get the page number for the final hymn.

My gaze once again rested upon the sermon title for today, “Trusting God in Everything.” Trust God? I didn’t have anything left to entrust to Him. Mom was gone. My husband had divorced me for another woman, and yesterday, I’d lost my job. I wasn’t sure I could trust God.

At the mention of her name, the man’s head jerked around, and he stared at her. Heat rose from her neck to her cheeks under his scrutiny.

Richard stood. “This is my brother, Sean. Sean, this is Hope.”
Hope recognized the resemblance.
Both brothers had baby blue eyes and broad shoulders.
Sean stepped closer and studied Hope’s face.
It unnerved her.
“The same Hope who makes the magic shawls?”
“Excuse me?"

Author Bio:  
Paula Mowery is a published author, acquisitions editor, and speaker. Her first two published works were The Blessing Seer and Be The Blessing from Pelican Book Group. Both are women’s fiction, and their themes have been the topics of speaking engagements. In November of 2013, her first romance released in the anthology, Brave New Century, from Prism Book Group. Legacy and Love is her first solo romance. Reviewers of her writing characterize it as “thundering with emotion.” Her articles have appeared in Woman’s World, The Christian Online Magazine, and the multi-author devotional blog, Full Flavored Living.

As an acquisitions editor for Prism Book Group, Paula particularly looks for romance stories with Christian values at its core. She’s especially attracted to those manuscripts that leave the reader mulling over the story long after turning the last page.

Having been an avid reader of Christian fiction, she now puts that love to use by writing book reviews. She is a member of ACFW and is on the author interview team.

Paula is a pastor’s wife and mom to a first year college student. She homeschooled her daughter through all twelve years, and they both lived to tell about it. Before educating her daughter at home, she was an English teacher in public school.

I have a prayer shawl given to me when my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's.
Each "knit one, purl two" was stitched with love and lots of prayer.

We don't have a prayer shawl, but we do have a prayer afghan that was given to us by hospice after my mil, who spent her final days in our home, died. Years ago I used to make challah ever week and I would pray over the loaves as I kneaded them, and then give them away to people. I called them my prayer loaves. I'm hoping to win a copy of your book. cjajsmommy (at) gmail (dot) com . Deb R.

I recently heard a sermon on prayer shawls and like how you use this in your story line. I would like to see how this story unfolds.
Thank you

Thanks everyone for stopping by. I have crocheted a few prayer shawls for people in our church who were going through illness. They can be a very encouraging gesture.
