Publisher's Summary

A HISTORICAL NOVEL OF THE PERILS OF NEWLYWED LIFE AND ALL THAT COMES TO DIVIDE LOVERS

In 1897, newly married Beryl and Edward Massart travel more than 1,000 miles from Quebec to farm a plot of land in Wisconsin that they bought sight-unseen. An almost magical grove of maples on their property inspires them to dream of a real home built within the grove, not the tiny log cabin they’ve come to live in.

Misunderstandings and tempers get the better of them when difficulties and troubles arise. Just months after they wed, Edward leaves pregnant Beryl in the midst of the coming winter to tend the farm and animals while he goes to be a teamster at a northern Wisconsin logging camp.

Will Beryl and Edward walk into the future together to build their house of dreams in the grove of maples, or will their plans topple like a house of sticks when the winds of misunderstanding and disaster strike?

Listeners of Christian historical fiction, Historical fiction, Women’s fiction, and Christian historical romance will be endeared to this slice of late 19th century farm life.

What a lovely read!

I was waiting eagerly for the audio edition of this book. What can I say? I’m in awe.
“In a Grove of Maples” is a captivating novel: a whirlwind of emotions sucks you in for you to feel the breath of life. What a lovely read it is!
Beryl and Edward’s love story could be a survival guide for every young couple. If hardship hits, our level of trust, devotion, acceptance, honesty, faithfulness, stamina, patience, faith etc will be put to the test, and the sincere words “I love you” can save us from the unnecessary turmoil and temptation.
I read and loved all Jenny’s novels, and I’m already looking forward to the release of her next book.
