ABOUT BOOK: It appears Jenna Bouvier is losing everything: beauty, family, and wealth. When her controlling and emotionally abusive mother-in-law accuses Jenna of an affair with her spiritual director and threatens to expose them, Jenna also risks losing her reputation as a woman of faith. Will she capitulate to her mother-in-law’s wishes again or fight for what she holds dear? As Jenna loses her life, will she find it?

Andee Bell has found exactly what she wanted: fame, fortune, and respect. There’s also a special man in her life—Jenna’s brother. Despite her success, a secret quells Andee’s contentment. As memories torment, will she find peace in a relationship with God, or will she sabotage herself while also taking down the only person she cares about? As Andee finds her life, will she lose it?

Moving between San Francisco and the Napa Valley, Jenna and Andee form an unlikely relationship that leads them to a crossroad. They can follow familiar inclinations, or risk it all and walk in faith.

I appreciate the effect on the cover where the Lost is faded out and Found is brightly seen. That makes for a very telling visual portrait of coming from spiritual death to life giving salvation in Christ.

This author is new to me. I am interested in getting to know her writing. I would feel blessed to win her book. The cover gives a clue that there are many layers to this story.

Blessings, Janice

Janice, you give a deeply insightful evaluation of the cover. My cover designer at B&H Publishing, Diana Lawrence, is fantastic and truly brings the heart of the story to the cover. Lost and Found is a multi-layered and deeply spiritual story. I hope you'll win a copy! If not, perhaps you'll find it in your local library.

I have not read any books by this author, but look forward to making a new discovery!

Hi Rebecca, I hope you'll win a copy of Lost and Found and discover a new author you like. :-)

I don't think I've read any of her books. However, this kind of plot sounds just my ticket! Even though I read lots of chick lit books and enjoy the romance, the books I re-read search my own heart for evidences of faith, hypocrisy, success, failure, secret sins, etc. This sound like it would definitely do that, wrapped in a wonderful story. 

Carol, you sound like eclectic reader. Perhaps Lost and Found is a book you'll read again and again as it does, I pray do just as you describe--helps the reader search their own heart and then offers the hope found in Jesus Christ.

2) I have not read your other book "Words".  I will have to look it up.

The cover of "Lost and Found" looks to me that it takes place in the season of fall, the leaves the colors on the cover.  Jenna seems to be contemplating life and all that goes with it.  All the confussing, problems and how to solve them.  A cry to God to help and show her the right way.

Brenda, yes, much of Lost and Found takes place in the fall. Jenna is searching for the life God intends for her to live-she does cry out for Him. I hope you'll read and enjoy Lost and Found and Words.

No, I have never read any of this author's books. She is a new author to me but I would love to have this book to add to my library and to be introduced to another great author because this book sounds like a great read.



Hi Patricia, I hope you'll win a copy of Lost and Found and add me to your list of authors you enjoy. :-)

i have read WORDS and that novel deeply affected me...i have not looked at life and those around me in the same way again. No, not even words are just words to me. It was an amazing novel. So i look forward to this one by Ginny to see what she has in store for me and all her readers this time! Thank you for the chance to win!

Hi Marianne, thank you for your encouraging words about Words. I'm always touched by the way God works when I hear that one of my books impacted a reader. I hope you'll enjoy Lost and Found as well.
