Breath of Heaven Blog Tour & Giveaway by Alana Terry

About the Book


Title: Breath of Heaven


Author: Alana Terry


Genre: Contemporary Christian Fiction


Release Date: December 9, 2017



She hasn’t fallen out of love with her husband. She just can’t stand his church.


Nobody told Katrina being a pastor’s wife would be easy. But she never imagined that the stress she and her husband would face from his new job could so easily destroy their marriage.


In spite of her mother’s disapproval, Katrina marries a pastor whose job immediately plucks her away from her music, her symphony, and the city life she loves and plants her in the small town of Orchard Grove, Washington.


If she knew going into her new life that she’d be sacrificing her music career for a congregation full of gossips and backbiters and that the pressure of her husband’s new job would turn him into someone she hardly recognizes anymore, she might have reconsidered marrying him in the first place.


Unfortunately, it’s too late to do anything about that now. Or is it?

Guest Post from Alana Terry


I used to think being a pastor’s wife would be glamorous. Now I know better!

Although I’ve loved the different churches where my husband has been called to serve, being a couple in full-time ministry can definitely take its toll on a marriage.

Breath of Heaven is a novel in my Orchard Grove Christian women’s fiction series, which deals with real-life couples facing real-life issues. In Breath of Heaven, two newlyweds are thrown into the world of church politics, and the honeymoon period is quickly over.

I wrote this novel to give an inside peek at what it’s like if you’ve never been a pastor’s wife as well as to offer some hope and encouragement to women who know the stress of being married to someone in full-time ministry.

My Review

 

The main characters in Breath of Heaven, a young pastor, Greg and his wife, Katrina move from California to the small town of Orchard Grove, Washington to take over the church. Katrina struggles with the boredom of small-town life and her love for music,

 

I like how the author used everyday issues that we all face to show that a pastor and his wife endure a lot of those same issues. The characters were very well-developed and even though I had some issues with Katrina, I found myself having compassion for her in the end. I was engrossed in the story from the beginning and couldn't wait to see what developed next. There was a lot of constant tension.

 

This is a story of the relationship between a husband and wife, honesty, and forgiveness. It was down-to-earth and a very well-written story with real-life situations that were believable.

 

I received a copy of the book from Celebrate Lit and voluntarily choose to review it.
