Okay, so “retro romance” isn’t an official category, but when an author’s books barely squeak into historical, what’s she to do? Especially since some of her target readers lived those years! Jennifer Lynn Cary writes split-time and retro romance novels that sound so delightful and encouraging that I’ve added them all to my “want to read” list on GoodReads.
How One Woman’s Ministry Turned into an Inspired by Life Story
When I saw the title of this book, I was excited. My own experience with prayer shawl ministries intrigued me. How would a prayer shawl be the impetus for a story? What kind of story?
Well, if you read the reviews, you’ll see that readers are LOVING this book.
The pull between life dreams and responsibilities and love of family and their expectations is such a familiar and understandable one. I am eager to read this book and enjoy its inspirational themes for myself.
But Jennifer Lynn Cary hasn’t just written a book about prayer shawls and climbing corporate ladders.
In addition to that book, she’s also written The Weather Girls Series–a fun romp through the seventies. Ever wondered what life was like back in the seventies for parents? Grandparents? Older siblings? Younger siblings? Well, Jennifer has absolutely provided that. With fun pop culture (unless you’re an ignoramus like me!) references and all, you’ll be transported back in time to see what Indiana life was like.
So much of the author’s personal experience has influenced these stories in one way or another, but that’s not all.
Jennifer Lynn Cary offers a free novella for folks who sign up for her newsletter (or you can buy it if you want to). In that, you’ll get an even closer, personal look at her family’s life including Colonel Sanders, her first pen pal, and more!
Speaking of The Weather Girls, don’t forget to read the box set so you can get that recipe for French Silk Pie. You never know when someone you know might need a husband-getting dish… or is that just “need to get a dishy guy”? (Also available on Kindle Unlimited. Just sayin’.
