I’m so excited to bring you the cover reveal for Meant for Her by Joy Avery Melville!

Had it all truly been ~ MEANT FOR HER?

Kidnapped, raped, brutally beaten, and left for dead, Candi Reynolds becomes a prisoner of fear. Faced also with the impact of the unexpected break-up with her fiancé, and an unwanted pregnancy resulting from the attacks, she believes God has forsaken her. Choosing to move back to the Michigan horse farm, owned by her older brother, Dr. Cam Reynolds, Candi essentially goes into seclusion.

Dr. Patrick (Mack) MacKevon, long-time friend of Cam’s, watches from the sidelines at the farm, w here his horses are stabled, while Candi struggles to regain a sense of normalcy. His own big-brother tendencies develop into a much deeper emotion over the months he prays for her.

Is it possible for Candi to put all of the pain and trauma behind her and renew her former relationship with the Lord? Will she allow her heart to open enough to discover authentic love, while making decisions of victory on her personal journey to joy?

Joy Avery Melville’s heart’s desire is to be the author God has called her to be by sharing Him with readers in such a way they long to have a deeply committed personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord.

Fully intending to write Historical Romance—had in fact— she didn’t want to deviate from that. God had different plans for that ‘call’ He’d made on her life back in 1967. A mere eighth grader at the time, she had no clue about the topics she’d be drawn to write about.

Surrendering to the genre God placed on her heart has given Joy new insight into the hearts and lives of those who too often hurt in silence.

The settings of Joy’s books are near where she lives in Schoolcraft, Michigan with her husband of nearly 46 years and their eleven-month-old Yorkie pup, Is-A-Bella Bindi, (Is-a-beautiful little girl) who thinks she’s a much larger breed with tomboy tendencies.

Joy loves to hear from readers. She can be contacted through her website, Facebook, or by email, and she also has a presence on Twitter and Pinterest.

    This book sounds excellent! I’ve not heard of Joy before so I’m looking forward to reading a new-to-me author. The cover is beautiful…the scenery and the fonts are all exceptional.

  2. Many of you have commented on the cover – Fall, and the potential of walking into it – MEANT FOR HER actually begins the first day of MI Deer Hunting Season (November 15, 2013) – and – that woods you see on the cover has a place in the story – the lane is called Maple Lane by the characters..

    Do you have any questions about the story?

    I’ve appreciated your comments very much.

    I love the path that leads you forward among the beautiful fall trees. I am assuming this symbolizes the path the character takes to a new beginning. The story sounds very emotional. Best wishes on the new release.

    • That is the symbolic part of the Maple Lane, Debra Branigan. I’m glad you picked up on that. Candi’s journey to joy! That lane is in the story more than once, so it worked well to use it in both ways on the cover.
      Thank you for the comment and than you for those best wishes!

    I can smell fall in the air just by looking at that cover–now I have to read the book! Thank you for the giveaway!

    • Donna – we’re are about to experience that look and feel beginning tonight – 37 degrees and the promise of highs at 50 over the next week.
      Colors are SLOW this year – we won’t be peaking at the usual mid-October, I’m guessing.
