Joanna Trapp found adventure serving in France as a "Hello Girl," one of over 200 telephone operators called upon by General Pershing to serve in the Army Signal Corps, but she still mourns her doughboy sweetheart killed in battle. Returning to Hot Springs, Arkansas, she takes a job as a switchboard operator at the Arlington Hotel and quickly discovers that after her experiences overseas, civilian life proves almost too tame.

Thomas Ballard still regrets he was medically ineligible to serve in the war and feels somehow inferior to those who did, especially his war-hero brother, Gilbert. When Thomas finds himself attracted to Joanna, he strives to match her adventurous spirit, when all he really wants is to settle down, raise a family, and earn respect as a successful businessman.

As romance blossoms, can two such different people learn to accept not only their own but each other's God-created individuality . . . or will love change them both?

EVERY TEAR A MEMORY earns 4 1/2 stars from RT Book Reviews!

I learned this week that RT Book Reviews has awarded Every Tear a Memory (Till We Meet Again, book 3) a whopping 4 1/2 stars!!! The book releases sometime in October and is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.com.

The review:
Johnson crafts a beautiful love story about opening oneself up to love again and stepping out in faith in the face of an uncertain future. The title itself is so meaningful and encapsulates the essence of the story so well. With an adventurous and plucky heroine and a hero who’s about to have his quiet world turned upside down, the romance is endearing and truly heart-tugging. Johnson does her historical background homework and it shows. This emotionally driven story will keep readers entertained until the final pages.

Wise words



How often have I caught myself trying to take control of a situation because I want it to turn out a certain way? More specifically, my way. 

That's a problem Julie Pearl Stiles faces in my novel Pearl of Great Price. Two people she cares about are hurting, and she wants to "fix" them. Then a wise woman speaks these words to her, and she realizes God may have a better plan.

When have you found yourself in a similar situation? What did you learn from it?

Welcome!

Just getting started at my new blog location. Thought it was time for a change. I'm about as random as a blogger can get, but you may find something new here from time to time.

In the meantime, you can usually find me in Seekerville, where I hang out with 12 other Christian authors and our chatty community of writers and readers. Come say hi and stay awhile!
