Terri Nighswonger releases new book, 'The Grace Assignment'
A news release was sent last week about Novelty resident Terri Nighswonger's new book:
NOVELTY, Ohio – This week marks the nationwide release of “The Grace Assignment,” the new novel releasing nationwide this week by Ohio author Terri Nighswonger.
The book introduces readers to CJ Dennis, who is an ineffective, mediocre Christian until God begins to work in ways he doesn't understand. As a journalist, he begins to write a story on homelessness in Cleveland, where he lives and works. While interviewing for the story, he meets Mary Ann and her three children and feels a strong pull to get them off the streets.
When his story runs, he unwittingly provides Mary Ann's ex-husband with just the clue he needs. Mary Ann is murdered and her children are left without a mother. Readers learn if, as CJ struggles to find peace and understand God's will, his budding faith will survive the test of learning to love three children and the threat of having them taken away from him.
“I have three children adopted out of the foster care system,” Nighswonger said. “We all think there is no one else who knows what they are going through, but I have found personally that there are more out there than I could imagine.”
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
Nighswonger is an awarding-winning journalist and the former editor of Family Magazines. She enjoys encouraging women, whether it's at the Geauga County jail or in her home church, Word of Grace Church in Chesterland, or mentoring budding writers. She and her family, including one biological and three adopted children, reside in Novelty, Ohio.
