Happy Thursday, Friends!
I’m hading over Throwback Thursday to Barbara M. Britton as she talks about her debut novel, Providence: Hannah’s Journey. Grab a cup of tea and coffee and chat with her!
Thanks for having me on Throwback Thursday, Toni. I’m highlighting my debut novel that released in October of 2016. The theme for Providence: Hannah’s Journey is God is in control even in the chaos of life. It’s pertinent to today’s worries, but little did I know when I signed my publishing contract in 2015 that I would face a battle with breast cancer. God wouldn’t call me home before my book release, would He? After two surgeries and radiation, I am almost five years breast-cancer free. Praise God.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My publisher had no idea when they chose October as the month to release my book, I would be a survivor of one of the toughest battles I have ever fought.
My advice to all women is:
Have a yearly 3D mammogram
Don’t wait to biopsy if something shows up on the imaging—even if an ultrasound says you’re okay
Advocate for the best medical care for YOU
Don’t suffer in silence. Prayer support is priceless
Here’s a blurb for my first work of Biblical Fiction. A story similar to II Kings 5 focusing on a servant girl who had an unwavering faith in God. In this story, we see faith in God grow in the heart of a foreign-born commander.
About the Book
Determined to restore her family’s honor, Hannah escapes Jerusalem in hopes of finding the prophet and convincing him to restore her deformities. Gilead, a young Hebrew guard sympathetic to her plight, willingly accompanies her. On their way, they are captured by a band of raiders
Hannah is forced to serve in the household of the commander of the Aramean army, an officer who is in need of healing himself. Meanwhile Gilead is being used as sword practice for the Aramean army.
Hannah must act fast to save Gilead and herself. But survival means coaxing the prophet of Israel to heal an enemy commander.
