Review: The Preacher's Lady by:Lori Copeland
About the Book:
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 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 rededicated his life to God.
Can Bo convince Elly they were meant to be together despite all the bumps in their path?
When Elly Sullivan and Bo Garrett were teenager's they pledge their love for one another by screaming it out in the wind and carving their initials in a tree. Now seven years after Bo left for an adventure. Elly hopes with her very being that she wont have to lay eyes on Bo again. But talking to her best friend, his sister in the mercantile and there he is again in her life. This time knowing how she feels about him.
Bo knows he did wrong never contacting Elly, but he never wished for him to know how sinful of a person he had become. No after being struck by lightening he knows God had something bigger planned for him. Coming home to help his parents, the whole town welcomes him with open arms. Elly on the other hand just gives him the cold shoulder.
Bo tries his best to show Elly, he is sorry for all those years that have passed. But can she ever find it in her heart to forgive him?
The Preacher's Lady is an amazing read. Having read many books from this author, I was very excited when I got the chance to read this one as well. I loved ever aspect of this book and I hope to read many more from this author as well.
