Heart of Petra — Book Giveaway

Have you ever felt like you’re the only dirty one inside your church?

I know I have.

You are not alone. And author Hilarey Johnson steps out to tackle this common feeling through her novel, Heart of Petra. She believes in the message behind this book so much she’s chosen to offer one up — a paperback or ebook (your choice!) — in a giveaway.

I had the honor of having Hilarey on my launch team for A Time to Die. Not only was she a pleasure to get to know, but it’s clear she has a strong heart and vision for the books she’s called to write. 

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000032_00038]She longed for adventure…the safe kind.

Twenty-year old Leah Petra Jones calls out to God for an adventure, something more than life as the dutiful daughter of a worship pastor.

Only, in a church filled with secrets, adventure already waits.

At first sign of risk she reneges — but it’s too late. A handsome intern pastor helps the church transition right into a scheme where she is both prize and pawn. Petra learns that the most dangerous adventure can happen right in your own church.

About Nadine Brandes

Nadine Brandes is an adventurer, fusing authentic faith with bold imagination. She never received her Hogwarts letter, but rest assured she’s no Muggle (and would have been in Ravenclaw House, thank you very much.) This Harry Potter super-nerd has been known to eat an entire package of Oreos (family size) by herself, and watches Fiddler on the Roof at least once a year. She writes about brave living, finding purpose, and other worlds soaked in imagination. Her dystopian trilogy (The Out of Time Series) challenged her to pursue shalom, which is now her favorite word (followed closely by bumbershoot.) When Nadine’s not taste-testing a new chai or editing fantasy novels, she and her knight-in-shining armor (nickname: “hubby”) are out pursuing adventures.
