Jen Cudmore has just released a new novel,”The Whispers of Angels”.
It is part of best-selling author Murray Pura’s “Blue Heaven Romance Series”.
Here is the Amazon Kindle link, the story synopsis, and a little bit about the author. The novel will be released in paperback later this month.
After being shunned by society for most of his childhood, Raymond Foss has learned to let ridicule roll off his back. Abandoned by his father and despised by his step-father, he does his best to run the farm and ensure his family can survive on what little they have. All that matters to him is helping his mother raise his siblings to be responsible and considerate.
Eliza Potter's life has been entirely opposite of Raymond's. Both her parents doted on her and her sister, providing a loving home where they could flourish. Heartache and misfortune are troubles she knows very little about. Yet despite her good upbringing, she never became acquainted with her closest neighbors, the ill-fated Foss family.
When Raymond's mother dies and he's left to care for his four small siblings on his own, Eliza and her parents step in to help. Preferring to hide away on the family farm, Raymond struggles with reaching out to others. Eliza soon learns there's much more to the odd neighbor boy who has been avoiding her.
Just when the young couple comes to an understanding, Raymond's stepfather returns from his travels. As events unfold, Raymond and Eliza realize just how complicated life can be and how much a simple mistake can affect their future.
When life become increasingly difficult, what will they hold on to? And what will they let go?

Not once in the first twenty-five years of my life did I consider writing a novel. Now I can't keep the story ideas from compiling in my brain! I hope my stories encourage women to look for positive qualities in a life partner, and to foster an environment of real romance, rather than fantasy, as they grow old with that special someone.
I grew up on the Columbia River Gorge in a tiny cabin built by my father. After high school, I left the Gorge area to attend Northwest University, where I graduated with the first group of students to earn a bachelor's of psychology. My goal was to become a marriage and family therapist because I had seen too many families torn apart. I wanted to join the ranks of great counselors like Kevin Leman and Gary Smalley. Instead, I'm now, after years of hard work, a published author. I don't think I'll be going back to graduate school any time soon!
I'm a member of the Christian Writers Guild as well as the local Alaska Writers Guild, where I served for 4 years on the conference committee. I currently live in Alaska with my husband, 2 children, 2 boxers, and a cat.
