"Forever Hilltop" by Judy Baer
"An Unlikely Blessing" is the story of Alex Armstrong. He is a pastor and has taken on the challenge of pastoring two churches. While he thinks pastoring in the country should be relatively quiet compared to the city, he quickly finds that country life is busy, complicated, and funny. Being a bachelor also creates its own set of challenges, and Alex is not bored.
"Surprising Grace" also deals with the life of a pastor, one who has had his heart broken. Funny though, Natalie re-enters his life and wants him back. Will Alex give up his home and church for her? Which of the other delightful characters thinks he will make a great husband for them?
I love Judy Baer's books! The characters and stories come to life as soon as I start reading. I recommend this volume to all readers, along with her other books. Reading groups will have fun with the story lines. I received my free review copy from Litfuse Publicity for participation in the blog tour.
About the book:
The charming and often hilarious Forever Hilltop series follows the experiences of former city dweller Alex Armstrong as he settles into his new role as pastor of a Scandinavian community in rural North Dakota. Alex is sometimes baffled by his parishioners and their colorful ways, but he comes to appreciate their simple wisdom. One thing's for sure -- life in Hilltop Township is never dull! This new two-in-one format features An Unlikely Blessing along with its sequel, Surprising Grace.
Judy Baer was born and grew up on a farm on the prairies of North Dakota, experiencing many of the same things as her Hilltop characters. An only child, she spent most of her days with imaginary people-either those she read about or those she made up in her head.
Baer graduated from Concordia College with majors in English and education and a minor in religion. While at the time, she was simply studying what interested her, Baer later realized that she was educating herself for her future career as a Christian writer. She certainly put her education to use as she is the author of more than 75 books.
A certified professional life coach now certified in three coaching disciplines, Baer coaches primarily professional and aspiring writers. She is also a faculty advisor in the Department of Human Development at St. Mary's University in Minneapolis, MN. Baer has two daughters and three step children. She and her husband live in Minnesota.
