It’s an age-old story. Boy meets girl, and it’s either love or war. In the case of Pepper Basham’s new book, A Twist of Faith, it’s man meets woman and although there is a mutual attraction, so many other things keep getting in the way.
Adelina Roseland, Ph.D. (aka Dee) is new to Ransom, Virginia, tucked away in the Appalachian Mountains. As an accent reduction specialist, Dee is new to the faculty in the speech department at a nearby university. Her goal in life is to land her dream job.
Dee’s emotions from childhood forward are locked tight within her, so tight she’s unable to understand them herself. But one thing is for sure–no one is every going to hurt again.
Along comes Reese Mitchell. Rugged and good-looking, tall and lean, tanned, helpful by nature, and speaking with the worst accent Dee can remember hearing. Dee’s supervisor only makes the attraction between the two worse by waging a bet with Dee. If she can take Reese and turn him into a professional speaking fellow, her supervisor will allow her to present her research at a conference. All Dee can think of is the possibility of this landing her that dream job!
What Dee didn’t count on was Reese’s loving and gracious family members, his two adorable motherless children, the reconnection she makes with the church and God, the sense of home she feels, and more importantly, the sensation that her heart is opening to many things.
AND Reese didn’t count on being the object of a lucrative wager between Dee and her supervisor. Here is where the war begins…but I can’t share anymore. I’ve laid out the background for you.
