To Be a Mother Anthology In Stores Now

cheryl_stjohn_logo.jpgMother’s Day is quickly approaching. It’s a day set aside to honor the women who either brought us into the world or cared for us once we were here. And sometimes we celebrate the love of women who have been like mothers to us. My novella Montana Rose in the To Be a Mother Love Inspired Historical anthology is the story of two young women who never knew their mothers, but who found each other.

Olivia Rose is a teacher at a girl’s academy, and Emily is her young student. When the school is forced to close, they leave behind everything familiar and travel west so Emily can meet the uncle she never knew existed. Both of them desire a family and a place to belong, and Emily finds both sooner than Olivia. Olivia’s feelings are torn, because she’s happy for the child, but she yearns for the same acceptance and fears she’s missed out.

To Be a Mother is in stores now! Think about picking up a copy for a special woman in your life—as well as one for yourself!

Today I’m giving away autographed copies to two readers who leave comments. Thanks for stopping by!

Teacher Olivia Rose knows what it’s like to grow up alone and unwanted. But convincing reserved rancher Jules Parrish he can give his orphaned niece a real home won’t be easy—unless Olivia seizes the chance of love and motherhood she never expected….

A Family of Her Own by Ruth Axtell Morren
War and tragedy destroyed Rianna Bruce’s chance at happily ever after…or did it? Reuniting with her first love, Noah Samuels, proves that her feelings haven’t gone away. In helping his young daughter, can Rianna show the disillusioned Noah the blessing of a second chance?

  3. I can’t imagine how difficult it must be to be alone in the world.

    These two stories centering on a teacher, Olivia finding love with a loner rancher, and a widow, Rhianna finding love with a first love while also providing stable,loving homes for the niece and daughter… both sound very touching!

  8. Cheryl,

    I love being a mother. I put everything I can to try and teach my children right from wrong.

    I feel that this book will open eyes to what life is really like to some point.

    To be alone is very sad for I was that way until I met my wonderful husband. It is very sad and you feel an empty void and as time goes by you think you will never have anybody to love you but that is not true. Keep going and then happiness will find you

    Cheryl you are a dear friend

    Congrats on your book

    Walk in harmony

  9. Hi Cheryl, I love the title of this book and it sounds like a wonderful read! I can’t wait to get my hand on a copy!

  10. Hi Cheryl from another Cheryl!
    Your book sounds awesome. I always try to include kids in my novels and short stories, and most times I just “do it” without realizing that’s how the plot is going to play out (in the beginning when I’m flying by the seat of my pants!)Please enter me in the drawing–I would love to win this book. It looks wonderful!

  11. Both stories in this book sound delightful. Stories about motherhood always touch this mother’s heart. This book would make a great Mother’s Day gift.

  12. Hi, Cheryl. I think this book would make an excellent Mother’s Day gift. Congratulations on its release.

  13. Great video. And good story concept. (Don’t enter me in the drawing–I’m a writer-reader not just a reader.)

    Hope you sell THOUSANDS and make many readers happy!

  14. Congrats on the release of To Be a Mother! Do not enter me in the drawing… I already have a copy in hand and can not wait to read it… have to wait until I get rid of this nasty cold I have had for 2 weeks… do not want to contaminate my books! 😀

  15. Cheryl I love this book! The story really touched my heart. I recommend it to everyone who’s looking for a story they can’t put down. You really outdid yourself with these characters and a plot that grips a reader.

    And the trailer is absolutely amazing. Good job! It’ll help sell bunches of copies.

  16. Went to Kmart (the one where I always have the BEST luck in my little town) specifically to buy this book and – horror of horrors~! They DIDN’T have it! Arrrr!

    Can’t wait to read it. Would love to win it, but if not I’ll have to track it down and buy it elsewhere! Sounds like an adoption story that will be close to my heart. 🙂

  17. Lovely book trailer.
    This sounds like a touching story.
    I have been lucky enough to have many “Mother ” figures in my life. Of course, my own mother first. She had six children in less than 10 years. We did OK, but had to be careful with finances. My paternal grandmother was another one. I spent a lot of time with her visiting and helping her out around the house and garden. My father’s sister was number 3. She and my uncle never were able to have children. I spent time with her just visiting or helping in the garden or with what other projects she was working on. My mother died when I was 24 and before I got married. My aunt became an active great-aunt and treated my children like her own grandchildren. My fourth “Mother” was my mother-in-law. You couldn’t hope to be blessed with a better one. We got along wonderfully. She didn’t have a daughter, so she got to do all the mother of the bride type things with me and it was wonderful. She truly was the Mother of both the bride and the groom at our wedding. They are all gone now, but still very deeply held in my heart.
    I look forward to reading both these stories.

  18. Cheryl, great excerpt. Oh, my, my TBR stack
    is reaching for the skies and it will soon
    reach them!
