Andrea Boeshaar's "Undaunted Faith"

We're happy to have Andrea Boeshaar with us today talking about her book Undaunted Faith. To learn more about Andrea and her book, read on!

Title: UNDAUNTED FAITH
Publisher: REALMS / CHARISMA MEDIA

Cover blurb: The McCabe brothers have their hands full. Trouble on the range and trouble in town. But they never expected their sweet schoolteacher, Bethany Stafford, to join in the mix of woe. When her reputation is unfairly tarnished, Pastor Luke McCabe is quick to propose marriage. But Bethany wants better than just a marriage of necessity to save her good name. Could Luke ever come to love a plain “little field mouse” like her?
Dr. Annetta Cavanaugh has her own questions about men and their intentions. While Pastor Jake McCabe seems sincere, she still has her doubts about him. But after he accompanies her on a medical call, she sees a whole new side of him and can't help but admit her attraction to the handsome pastor.
However, there’s evil brewing in town—a lawlessness that even the sheriff cannot tamp down. Finally, it comes face-to-face with both Luke and Jake and it threatens the lives of the women they love. Are the McCabe brothers ready for the fight of their lives?

1) How did this story come to you?
I have always loved a good western. Growing up, my favorite movie was Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid. My mother encouraged westerns, as she had read all of Zane Gray’s novels.
After I became a Christian, I felt prompted to write a western with a spiritual element. I had already been writing about the McCabes, and I liked my characters Jake, Luke – and, of course Miss Bethany Stafford. Readers meet these characters in Book 2: Uncertain Heart.
So the idea for Undaunted Faith had been in my mind for some time. I knew I just had to right the story. It’s Book 4 in my Seasons of Redemption Series.

2) Tell me three things about yourself that would surprise your readers.
a) I have 4 grandchildren
b) My husband and I are empty nesters, so we love taking road trips together.
c) One of our favorite movies is RV, starring Robin Williams.

3) What are you working on now and what's next for you?
I just turned in the manuscript to my editors for Threads of Hope. It’s Book 1 of a brand new series called Fabric of Time. Here’s a description of the story.
Kristin Eikaas traveled all the way from Norway to Brown County, Wisconsin with hopes and dreams of making a new life for herself. But she only finds one disappointment after another. Worse, her contemptible and superstitious uncle comes to believe Kristin is cursed by his rival-neighbor’s Oneida Indian wife. Everyone knows the Sundbergs put spells on people –
Everyone except Kristin. Her accidental run-ins with Sam Sundberg only prove that he is a good man from a Christian family. But when her uncle discovers she’s been associating with a Sundberg, his temper flares. To spare her from the man’s ongoing wrath and poor judgment, Kristin is offered a job as the Sundbergs’ house girl. She gratefully accepts the position and finds solace at the family’s spinning wheel.
In the time Sam Sundberg spends with Kristin he sees both her hard working nature and her heart for the Lord. Their friendship develops into much more and Sam prays about a match between them. However, his father has bigger, bolder plans for Sam’s future – plans that include running for political office and garnering a position in the government’s Bureau of Indian Affairs. Citing those reasons, he forbids Sam to court Kristin. But Sam senses his father’s opposition is bound by chords of past infractions.
Can Sam and Kristin’s newfound love withstand the hate and prejudice surrounding them?
