Book Feature & Excerpt: Hope For Tomorrow by Michelle De Bruin

hope for tomorrow Michelle De Bruin excerpt



 When Logan De Witt learns of his father’s sudden death, he returns home to the family’s dairy farm. During his stay, he discovers his mother’s struggle with finances and his younger sister’s struggle with grief. Concern for his family presses Logan to make the difficult decision to leave his career as a pastor and stay on the farm. As a way to make some extra money, he agrees to board the teacher for their local school.

Karen Millerson arrives from Chicago ready to teach high school but her position is eliminated so she accepts the role of country school teacher. Eager to put her family’s ugly past behind her, Karen begins a new career to replace the trust she lost in her own father who had been in ministry when she was a child.

Logan and Karen both sense a call from the Lord to serve him, but neither of them expected that one day they would do it together.

Can Karen learn to trust again? Will Logan lay aside his grief in exchange for God’s purpose for his life?

She shouldn’t give her heart to him. Allowing that to happen would strap her to a life of suffering if he died and scandal if he didn’t. If only she could somehow return the kiss back to him. Then she’d be free. Oblivious to the knowledge of how well Logan satisfied her hopes. Things such as his call, like hers, to shape and influence lives. And his interests in lofty topics like history and religion. But so much more defined Logan as a man. Like the kindness that marked his every conversation along with the compassion for God’s people and the love for God’s word that kept him in the pulpit for the Meadow Creek congregation week after week. Karen studied his profile as they crossed the porch. Could such a gentle man really be as dangerous as she first believed?
