"Breath of Heaven" by Alana Terry Book Tour And GiveAway

About the Book

Title: Breath of Heaven  
Author: Alana Terry  
Genre: Contemporary Christian Fiction  
Release Date: December 9, 2017

She hasn’t fallen out of love with her husband. She just can’t stand his church. Nobody told Katrina being a pastor’s wife would be easy. But she never imagined that the stress she and her husband would face from his new job could so easily destroy their marriage. In spite of her mother’s disapproval, Katrina marries a pastor whose job immediately plucks her away from her music, her symphony, and the city life she loves and plants her in the small town of Orchard Grove, Washington. If she knew going into her new life that she’d be sacrificing her music career for a congregation full of gossips and backbiters and that the pressure of her husband’s new job would turn him into someone she hardly recognizes anymore, she might have reconsidered marrying him in the first place. Unfortunately, it’s too late to do anything about that now. Or is it?

My Review:
"Breath of Heaven" by Alana Terry is the third book in the" Orchard Grove Christian women’s " series and I think it is the best of the three.

This is a story about a young preacher and his wife and a church that is demanding of them both.  

This book plainly shows that pastor and their families have the same issues as other families with the added stress of having to be available for others all the time.

Each of the three books are a standalone but they all have one character in common, Grandma Lucy. Grandma Lucy  gives prophecies.

Each book has a different theme, a really sick infant, depression and mental illness, miscarriage and demands on a family in full time ministry. 

In "Breath of Heaven" by Alana Terry  the main female character gives up her music career for love. 

This book clearly tells what happens when husbands and wives don't make each other a priority.

This book even has a laugh out loud scene occurring when the pastor doesn't realize they have company, a little adult humor but clean.

Alana Terry has written three stories that are "true to life" fiction. These stories propably have taken place somewhere in the world with different names. 

"Breath of Heaven" by Alana Terry is definitely a five star novel. 

I was given a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own.

Guest Post from Alana Terry

I used to think being a pastor’s wife would be glamorous. Now I know better!
Although I’ve loved the different churches where my husband has been called to serve, being a couple in full-time ministry can definitely take its toll on a marriage.
Breath of Heaven is a novel in my Orchard Grove Christian women’s fiction series, which deals with real-life couples facing real-life issues. In Breath of Heaven, two newlyweds are thrown into the world of church politics, and the honeymoon period is quickly over.
I wrote this novel to give an inside peek at what it’s like if you’ve never been a pastor’s wife as well as to offer some hope and encouragement to women who know the stress of being married to someone in full-time ministry.
