About the Author
Ever since I walked into my first-grade classroom as a little awe-struck girl, I dreamed of being a school teacher. Dreams do come true. I earned a Bachelor of Education from the University of Alberta and a Masters of Religious Education from the Southern Baptist Seminary in Cochrane, Alberta. I have had the privilege of being a teacher in Canada and China. I wrote A Life Set Free under a mosquito net in China. That's when my addiction to writing was born.
God has given me the honor of being an ambassador with “The Department of Eternal Affairs” to so many cool places--Haiti, a jungle village in Belize, the Ghetto in NYC, behind the Iron Curtain in Poland and Romania, in Israel, China, Thailand, Mexico, Canada, Africa, Greece, and I am currently leading Bible studies in Pakistan by Whats App. I started a blog to bless, encourage, and sometimes challenge people. Here’s the link. renagroot.com.
I give all glory to God for the many things He has done in my life. He gave me four precious children. He has held me in my darkest, loneliest moments. He promises to hold you too. You can trust Him. He is all you need for time and eternity. Blessings. Rena Groot
Anne by Rena Groot is a novel filled with hope but also much sadness. It is a mail order bride story. I recommend this book but have to say I read it with tears falling down my checks. But. It was real life and the ending truly turned the tears into smiles. I really enjoyed the Biblical Scriptures that were part of the plot.
I received a complimentary copy from the author and these opinions are my own.
