CFBA Presents "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


Dee Henderson is the bestselling, award-winning author of 15 previous novels, including the acclaimed O'MALLEY series and UNCOMMON HEROES series. These days, most authors are out there energetically promoting their books in print and broadcast and via social media—wherever they can get attention. But Dee Henderson keeps a low profile. She avoids telephone interviews because of hearing problems, declined to provide a current photo, and will say only that she lives in Illinois.


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.

If you would like to read the first chapter of Jennifer: An O’Malley Love Story, go to HERE.

My Thoughts:

This is the book O'Malley fans have been waiting for.  Unfortunately, it's a novella instead of a full novel.  Considering Jennifer's story was told throughout the series, the length of the book was understandable.  Just can't get enough of the O'Malley family!

We get to meet Jennifer when she's just beginning her life as a pediatrician and meeting Tom.  It's before she comes to faith in Christ as well, so we get to see her faith journey.

If you've read the O'Malley series, you already know the ending.  For new fans, oh, are you in for a treat!  Welcome to one of the greatest fictional families in Christian fiction...EVER.

I had to wrestle with my daughter for rights to read the book first: I'm surprised you didn't hear her scream with excitement wherever you live in the world.  She came to love the O'Malley family as much as I have, and it's been fun watching her read her way through the series.

This makes the seventh book, not including the prequel.  Each book is quality, and is an extension of the other books.  I received a copy of "Jennifer: An O'Malley Love Story" in exchange for an honest review.

Add this to your collection, or begin your journey with this family here, with Jennifer.  But make sure to read all of the books.  You'll be glad you did, and "Jennifer: An O'Malley Love Story" is highly recommended.
