I normally post on Monday, but since this Monday is April Fool’s Day, I thought I’d better post this one a little bit early. 😉

I got an email from the marketing department of Kensington Books, letting me know the THE BISHOP’S DAUGHTER received a starred review from Library Journal!

This is very exciting, and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

The Bishop's Daughter MM


Johns, Patricia. The Bishop’s Daughter. Zebra: Kensington. May 2019. 352p. ISBN 9781420149111. pap. $7.99; ebk. ISBN 9781420149142. INSPIRATIONAL ROMANCE

Nine years ago, rebellious Elijah Fisher abruptly moved from Morinville, IN, for the Englisher life, leaving behind a confused, brokenhearted Sadie Graber. Now he is back because his family needs help, but staying in the restrictive Amish community is not in his plans. With his independent views and questioning attitude, he no longer fits in, but he can’t deny his feelings for Sadie—now a young widow with a three-year-old son and a woman who may never forgive him.

Heartrending, poignant, and perceptive, this beautifully written story has a cultural rather than a solely religious focus and will appeal to fans of sweet romance across the board. A solid debut…
