Annabelle’s Joy ~ Betty Thomason Owens

Yes, I know it’s Thursday. But there’s something happening that I just had to share with you. My friend and crit partner, Betty Thomason Owens has released the sequel to Annabelle’s Ruth.

I’ve followed Annabelle’s and Tom’s story through the first two books in the Kinsman Redeemer Series, and I’m excited to finally read how it all works out. Psst! You won’t be disappointed. I love these two characters!

In my Sutter’s Landing book review, I mentioned how one character’s prayer made such an impact on me that I’ll never forget that scene. That character was Tom!

Ready to learn more? Keep reading!

Annabelle’s Joy

Annabelle’s Joy – Kinsman Redeemer, Book 3

Genre: historical romance

Author: Betty Thomason Owens

Book Blurb:

She’s waited too long. When Tom proposed last year, Annabelle wasn’t ready to open her heart to another man. Pain still held a thin crust around it. Time has healed her heart, but with a new woman in town, one who clearly has her sights set on Tom, does it matter if Annabelle’s heart is ready to love again?

Folks in town are keeping a close eye on their pharmacist, hoping to be the first to hear the good news. He’s been courting the widow Cross for nigh on two years now. Annabelle Cross better wake up and put her dancing shoes on. Mr. Tom is prime real estate.

Drift back into the simple, country life of Tennessee in 1957 with this sequel to award-winning ANNABELLE’S RUTH.

“A 1950s Clean & Wholesome Romance”
