WINTER’S PAST--A Story of 2nd Chances and Redemption

Mary E Hanks announces the release of her debut novel Winter’s Past.

Ty blew it ten years ago. He regrets it, but he thanks God every day for radically changing his life. Now, he has one goal in mind--to make things right with Winter, his ex-wife. When he sees a flier announcing a Passion's Prayer Conference with speaker Winter Cowan, his heart nearly thuds out of his chest. Is God giving him a second chance?

      From a reader: “What can I say except, WOW! It made for a very enjoyable weekend read.
It made me laugh & cry…inspiring.”

Winter didn't plan on seeing Ty Williams ever again. But when she speaks at a conference in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, a city she's avoided for the last ten years, and Ty shows up, she must face two things. Her past. And the fact she hasn't forgiven him. Only now, he's humble, broken, genuinely sorry, and, musch to her displeasure, still wildly handsome! Can she forgive him? Can she let God heal her heart and have His way in her life?

Mary E Hanks enjoys writing stories about the journey back to love. A romantic at heart, she believes we all need a second chance sometime. As a young adult, Mary experienced life as a pastor's wife, giving her a good background for ministry-themed stories. She and Jason have been married for 40 years, raised four children, and now live in the country near Blanchard, Idaho.
