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

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?
