Here's another “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway from our 2018 project! In these features, you get to hear about a book and have a chance to win a prize! Each featured author helped with the 2018 Mother's Day thermal bags that were donated to three Washington state Fisher Houses—VA Puget Sound Healthcare System in Seattle, Madigan Army Medical Center at JBLM, and VA Portland Health Care System in Vancouver.

This week, Melissa Storm‘s new release LOVE'S TRIAL is in the spotlight. This is book #5 in her First Street Church Romance series. Here's what a reviewer had to say about Melissa's book:

“Melissa Storm continues to impress me with the depth of honesty in her stories and her consideration and courage in addressing serious topics. In Love’s Trial she tackles several perspectives of abandonment and a case of agoraphobia. The characters all seemed to be reflections of people I have met in my life and the situations described are at times so very familiar to me. Wonderfully written and a pleasure to read.—Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for LOVE'S TRIAL:

Sally Scott has a lot of wishes that life just isn’t willing to grant for her. She longs to write the next great American novel, but nobody is willing to read it. The love of her life just married somebody else, and she’s the outsider in the small, close-knit town of Sweet Grove. At this point, she’s all but given up trying to fit in.

Tobias Lloyd, on the other hand, isn’t even supposed to be alive. His grandparents intercepted his teenaged mother on the way to abort him and forced her to have the baby she didn’t want. Although he was raised in their loving care, he’s always felt like his very existence is a mistake. Now fresh out of law school, he returns to his hometown, hoping he can finally find a place to belong and to prove he has a purpose.

Could Sally and Tobias find strength in their differences? Will she learn to appreciate all she has instead of focusing on what’s missing? And will he be able to identify and glorify God’s plan for his life?

Each of the books in Melissa's series contains a standalone romance so don't be afraid to jump in if you haven't read the others. This one sounds like an emotional read given the heroine's and hero's backstories. What do you think?
