Happy Thursday, Reader Friends!
I’m so excited for this TBT book spotlight! The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck is one of my favorite books of all time. Written by Bethany Turner and published in 2017 it deserves to be on your TBR pile!
About the Book
Becoming a Christian is the best and worst thing that has ever happened to Sarah Hollenbeck. Best because, well, that’s obvious. Worst because, up to this point, she’s made her very comfortable living as a well-known, bestselling author of steamy romance novels that would leave the members of her new church blushing. Now Sarah is trying to reconcile her past with the future she’s chosen. She’s still under contract with her publisher and on the hook with her enormous fan base for the kind of book she’s not sure she can write anymore. She’s beginning to think that the church might frown on her tithing on royalties from a “scandalous” book. And the fact that she’s falling in love with her pastor doesn’t make things any easier.
With a powerful voice, penetrating insight, and plenty of wit, Bethany Turner explodes onto the scene with a debut that isn’t afraid to deal with the thorny realities of living the Christian life.

This sounds like real life! I love that this book takes a look at what it might be for anyone who, find Jesus after living in the world and what iut looks like to make that transition. I really relate because I was in my 40’s when I was saved and reconciling my old and new lives was, to say the least, one interesting journey. I will be adding bg this to my TBR pile!
