Book Bite 8 — Calling For Help

Another book bite from the novel I’m revising about lies and deception in a small town church. Book Bites 8 — Calling For Help.

“Give it all to Me” was the quiet voice she heard in her heart. She looked up the verse that had seen her through that terrible time before. “I am a child of God,” she whispered to herself and smiled. She could do this with His help. She’d been trying to do it alone this far. It was time to call in His army!

The Brooch

Here’s another Book Bite from the novel I’m writing. The working title is ‘Lies and Deception’ about a small town church in rural Canada. In this scene, the protagonist, Maddie, has just been introduced to a new character and is sitting in their living room, admiring her grandmother’s antique brooch. She begins to feel a little uncomfortable.

“I feel a draft.” Maddie frowned slightly and looked around the room to see if a window was possibly open. She drew her shawl around her shoulders and admired her grandmother’s brooch adorning the cashmere shawl. It was a family heirloom and she seldom wore it but today she felt she should try to make conversation with the young mother and the brooch always brought a compliment and a smile from admirers.”

I hope you’ll stay tuned as I continue my revisions.

If you missed the first Book Bite you can catch up here.

Til next time, know you are loved by the One who created you in His image.
