CFBA: Jennifer: An O'Malley Love Story by Dee Henderson

This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is introducing:
Jennifer: An O’Malley Love Story
Bethany House Publishers (May 1, 2013)
Dee Henderson


It's finally happened! Jennifer O'Malley's story is being told and I actually squealed when I saw this book come up. I'm a big Dee Henderson fan and her O'Malley series is closest to my heart. Throughout each of the 6 siblings stories, Jennifer is mentioned and her story is told in part. Enough to know that in many ways she is the glue for the family and also the initial spark or introduction to faith in their lives as well. You knew Jennifer's story, but not enough to satisfy the need to know her story like the rest of the O'Malleys'. I'm glad I wasn't the only one that thought that. Thank you, Dee for bringing us the rest of the story! :)

I suppose some might thing it strange that it's possible to get so drawn into a story when you already know the basic plot and you know how it's going to end. But in this case it's not about knowing the story or how it's ending. It's the journey. The love and relationship that grows between Jennifer and Tom and Jennifer and Jesus. It's because Jennifer and Tom are such amazing people, that you just want to be in their lives and feel what they feel. No matter what.

That is the sign of a true artist, and I'll say it again, Dee Henderson is an amazingly talented artist. Jennifer: An O'Malley Love Story is worth every page read and every year waited to finally get the rest of the story.


It's a summer of change for Jennifer O'Malley. The busy physician has a pediatrics practice in Dallas, and meeting Tom Peterson, and falling in love, is adding a rich layer to her life. She's sorting out how to introduce him to her family--she's the youngest of seven--and thinking about marriage.

She's falling in love with Jesus too, and knows God is good. But that faith is about to be tested in a way she didn't expect, and the results will soon transform her entire family.
