Jennifer: An O'Malley Love Story by Dee Henderson - REVIEWED!

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Jennifer: An O’Malley Love Story
Bethany House Publishers (May 1, 2013)
Dee Henderson


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.

My Thoughts:

I have been a fan of the O’Malley series for YEARS!! Now, I get to know the members of the family in an entirely new way and I am lovin’ it!!  Jennifer is the youngest and I love the way she has to balance her life with the ever present knowledge of the love that surrounds her life.  Yet she still doesn’t have someone special in her life and she hasn’t accepted the love of her Savior either.  This took my mind and heart in an entirely new direction!  Loved her journey! Loved the relationships in her life – the way she loves others, especially her patients!! 

This book will make you run to the nearest bookstore and search out Dee Henderson’s O’Malley series! It’s been a while since I’ve read them, and I totally think that I will have to put them back into my reading lineup SOON!! This may be a small book, but it is PACKED with story!! Don’t miss this!! Seriously!! It is so wonderful to get to know Jennifer.  Dee Henderson can create truly unforgettable characters!!
