I'm thrilled to share a hot-off-the-press copy of Deb Raney's newest novel with you!
As some of you might know, Deb and I have been writing critique partners for 10+ years now. We read each other's novels before we send them into our editors, offering suggestions and comments, and I'd hate to think of writing a novel without Deb's insightful perspective and suggestions on that first draft.
As fabulous an editor as Deb is, she's an equally talented writer. What a gift!
Here's a glimpse at Deb's newest novel, AFTER ALL, the third book in her Hanover Falls series:
Eighteen months after the tragic Grove Street Fire took the life of her husband and four other heroic firefighters, Susan Marlowe thinks she's finally beginning to heal. But then she discovers that David carried a secret to his grave--a secret that changes everything she thought about their marriage. For the sake of their sons, can Susan forgive the unforgivable?
Andrea Morley lost her closest friend in the fire. But she has no right to mourn him. Instead, she must forever grieve in silence--for someone else's husband.
Peter Brennan carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. As Hanover Falls fire chief, he was responsible for the brave firefighters who lost their lives that awful November night. Can he ever shake the feeling that he could have somehow prevented the tragedy? And now it seems he might find comfort in the arms of the woman he least expected.

Have you ever been involved in a fire? Either a house fire or when a business has suffered fire damage? Deb does a masterful job of taking readers to the heart of the story's struggle, while also lifting our eyes to the One who holds all the answers.
