Jody Hedlund’s book, The Preacher’s Bride, is based on the true story of John Bunyan, author of Pilgrim’s Progress. The story line follows the life of Elizabeth, John’s second wife. Elizabeth is a selfless young lady with a servants heart. She is willing to sacrifice her own happiness and dreams to protect and care for John’s four children from his first marriage. John is committed to preaching God’s Word, Elizabeth is committed to helping him by being caregiver to the kids and housekeeper for the entire family. Did the two ever expect to fall in love?
Jody Hedlund does a fabulous job weaving a, somewhat, fictional path through this classic story. Definitely a page turner, always wanting to read more to find out what kind of danger Elizabeth is in. What trouble John is in. Where the two will end up!!
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading historical Christian romance.
