PAST BOOK TRAILER:
April's Storm (2nd Chance Series Book 2)
April Gray is fed up
with lectures on how to become the perfect pastor's wife, and her
husband's around-the-clock vigilance to the church is driving her
crazy. Has he fallen out of love with her? Is he having an affair?
After months of parsonage warfare, April is sure there's only one thing
left to do—leave!
Being a pastor means
everything to Chad; he thought April knew that when he married her. Why
can't she see he's doing the work of ten men? He doesn't have time for
romance when he barely has time to eat.
As a last ditch attempt
to rescue their marriage, April and Chad attend a seminar where Ty and
Winter Williams, second-time-around newly-weds, are sharing their
journey of forgiveness and second chances. Reconciliation sounds fine
to Chad, but what price will he have to pay?
“Mary Hanks' April's Storm
punched me in the stomach, made me cheer, and resonated deeply with the
decisions, growth and challenges people in ministry face each day. Good
fiction distilled from real life – a book well worth reading!” Kathy Vancil, missionary pastor's wife Priest Lake Community Church, Priest Lake, Idaho

camp ready—and plans for divorce.

amends for the past? Or is it too late?

Or can He change their hearts and help them find their way back to love?

necessarily in the way Autumn imagined.
