Jennifer by Dee Henderson

Read the first chapter excerpt here
It's a summer of change for Jennifer O'Malley.

The busy physician has a pediatrics practice in Dallas, Texas, and meeting and falling in love with surgeon Tom Peterson is adding a rich layer to her life. She's sorting out how to introduce Tom 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, and in a way she didn't expect. The results will soon transform her entire family.

Jennifer by Dee Henderson is a sweet little novella that tells the story of Jennifer O'Malley, the one O'Malley whose actions change the lives of her entire family. This novella is set before the O'Malley series that Dee Henderson wrote several years ago, and it sets the stage beautifully for the rest of the series. It tells the story of Jennifer, her blooming relationship with Tom, and her growth as a person and in faith as she learns more about God and His love for her. I enjoyed Jennifer's personality, and I admired her dedicated spirit as she helps and cares for her terminally ill patients with all of her love. She pours all of her life into making those children happy, and it really made me realize how a great doctor interacts with her patients. I also enjoyed Tom and Jennifer's interactions as they learned more about one another and were patient with each other's weaknesses. Overall, I found Jennifer by Dee Henderson to be a wonderful read that is both a great introduction to the O'Malley series for new readers and an awesome concluding novella for those who have fallen in love with Jennifer and the rest of the O'Malleys.

I received this novel for free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
