Newton & Polly
On the opening pages of Newton & Polly, the latest novel from Jody Hedlund, you will meet the main characters: John Newton and Polly Catlett. On the evening that Newton first hears Polly singing, he is mesmerized by the beauty and purity of her voice!
Newton seems to have fallen hard and fast for this young woman. You wonder what will happen after he must head out to sea. As Newton seems to get into scrap after scrap, you hope he will make it out alive!
Wait and see how God finally gets ahold of this young man's heart. After all that Newton will endure, he pens the much loved words to Amazing Grace. A beautiful example of a life redeemed!
I received this book from Waterbrook Press in exchange for my unbiased review.
