An Awakened Heart: An Orhan Train Novella
Jody Hedlund's latest novella entitled An Awakened Heart: An Orphan Train Novella, will introduce you to her latest series, An Orphan Train. You will meet Christine Pendleton, a wealthy young woman living in New York City, during the 1850's. Looking for a place to serve those less fortunate than herself, Christine has begun volunteering at the Centre Street Chapel. She soon meets Guy Bedell, the on site pastor, who is looking for ways to serve as well. Unfortunately, their approaches seem to be polar opposites. Guy's approach is to focus on the sins these people have committed, while Christine's approach is to cover these people with the love and acceptance of God, as Jesus Christ himself would offer!
As you see Guy and Christine begin to develop a plan to offer the poor women of the city a way to earn money for themselves, you will also see that feelings are developing between them! When the benefactors of the Centre Street Chapel will not accept their plan, Christine knows that God will lead them to another way!
You wonder if Guy and Christine will find a new way to minister to the poor on the streets of New York City. Do not be surprised when God leads them to a new plan, as well as a young family of three sisters with nowhere to go and no hope for the future!
