Book Review- Jennifer: An O'Malley Love Story

This week, the
is introducing
Bethany House Publishers (May 1, 2013)


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.


Jennifer: An O'Malley Love Story is the prequel to the O'Malley series. In this story we are taken back to the time before Jennifer was married and a Christian. Throughout out this short story we see how God puts people around us to comfort and bring us closer to Him.

The simple writing style and not overbearing amount of detail made for a simple and relaxed read. Some parts of the story felt too rushed, but understandably so, since there was limited writing space. I enjoyed reading this short story and would definetly love to read the rest of the series and get know more about Jennifer and Tom.
