Falling Free

Shannan Martin. Nelson, $16.99 trade paper (240p) ISBN 978-0-7180-7746-4
In this moving book, speaker and writer Martin explains how her dream of living her faith quietly and to herself was shaken to the core by unexpected challenges. Given Martin's popular blog, Flower Patch Farmgirl, readers might think she lives in a quaint farmhouse out in the country. And indeed she did until she and her jail-chaplain husband lost their jobs and had to move their four children to the middle of Goshen, Ind., where they bring encouragement and the benefits of a strong faith to a community challenged by drug abuse, crime, and poverty. Soon Martin discovers that she is exactly where she should be: a place where her presence can make a huge difference in people's lives, and where by sharing her faith, she can help instill hope in a community that had little of it. Written in a blog-like style, the book will help inspire those who find their lives turned upside down to pay closer attention to their current circumstances and open their hearts to change. In doing so, Martin writes, they may find a more meaningful purpose in life. (Sept.)
