Now Available - The Word Fulfilled


Yup, it's finally here! The second and final part to A Prophet's Tale was released on May 26th. The two best ways to get your copy are:

  1. You can order a copy from Amazon for the full cover price of $21.95, plus shipping. This is the fastest way to receive the book, but most expensive.

  2. You can order a copy from Christian Book Distributors for $15.99, but there are shipping fees and there's sometimes a delay in receiving books from CBD until they get fully stocked.

Thanks again to everyone for your encouragement during this project. A Prophet's Tale took nearly eight years from the time I typed the first line of Ben Amittai: First Call until this release of The Word Fulfilled. Jonah was very patient with me and so were you all.

God bless and I hope you enjoy the story!

The Long Road Home, by Judi Ann Ehresman (OakTara)


(Click cover for more information)

The Long Road Home is a gentle, heartwarming novella about the bond between Christian brothers and sisters that transcends social order, skin color and self-limitation. Set in the 19th-century Indiana wilderness, the story is of a young woman, Mandy Evanston, eking out a living alone while her husband works on the westward-expanding railroad. Mandy receives word that her husband has been killed in a construction accident, and now faces an uncertain future with her child who is yet to be born.

Enter Deidre, a runaway slave, who, with her young son, Jedediah, goes into hiding in Mandy's barn. Mandy discovers the pair and a mutually beneficial friendship begins. The two women work the farm and draw close, as they both mourn the loss of their husbands.

Meanwhile, Mandy's husband, Ethan, for his own reasons, has allowed Mandy to think him dead. He slips away morally, pushed by his own selfish struggle with restlessness, yet guilt-ridden at his deceit. At the depths of Ethan's depression, God draws him and turns the struggle to one of returning to his wife and confessing his sin.

Ms. Ehresman paints a lovely picture of the forested Indiana countryside, but also relates a convincing story of what it took to survive in the midst of such stark, unforgiving beauty. The Long Road Home is a comfortable read, one you can curl up and smile with at the end of the day. Enjoy!.

Progress Report

I know I've been kinda quiet on the blog lately, but there's a really good reason . . . :-)

The Word Fulfilled is finishing its final edit and will be heading to the printer very soon. I'm apologizing in advance for the spam mail I'm going to send out when I have a release date.
I thought it might be fun to have another Amazon Surge Day, like we did with The Journey Begun. We'll have to see if we can beat the lowest ranking (low is good!) that we got last August with The Journey Begun.

Will keep you posted and thanks to everyone who's been asking about when The Word Fulfilled will be out. Should be within the next month.
