Spotlight Six. Today I am doing a spotlight on “Breath of Heaven” by Alana Terry which is on tour with Celebrate Lit from June 28-July 11. Alana also has a GIVEAWAY for you so don’t forget to enter for a chance to win.
To spotlight Breath of Heaven, I would like to talk about some of the reviews this book has received. I hope you find this helpful in deciding to read Alana’s book. Thanks for popping by 🙂
Breath of Heaven
Breath of Heaven is rating 4-5 stars on Amazon, and it appears to be regarded as a great read to understand the life of a pastor’s wife. There is a question about whether or not a church owns a pastor and his wife like it does the house they live in. An interesting thought!
Then there are the expectations of a pastor’s wife. These expectations are commented on by several reviewers along with the victim role and gradual growth from bondage to freedom.
Some reviewers talk about Breath of Heaven being a life-changing story. A story that opens a dark tale that needs to be aired and spoken of, not hushed up behind closed doors. Alana Terry is praised for her candid portrayal of the main character, Katrina.
And finally wisdom
Can Katrina’s life as a pastor’s wife succeed as she feels out of her depth? I’ll let Grandma Lucy comment on this: “Now tell me, if the Lord is the source of your hope and joy, why does your music sound so wounded?”
Here are a few comments to wet your appetite.
“Relevant, compelling, engrossing, and real.”
“Breath of Heaven gets 5 stars and goes on my favourites list.”
“This isn’t an easy book to read, and frankly, I suspect it was even harder to write. All the emotions. Every one of the temptations.”
“I think this is the best book of Alana’s I have ever read. I don’t have more words than that.”

About the Book
Title: Breath of Heaven
Author: Alana Terry
Genre: Contemporary Christian Fiction
Release Date: December 9, 2017
She hasn’t fallen out of love with her husband. She just can’t stand his church.
Nobody told Katrina being a pastor’s wife would be easy. But she never imagined that the stress she and her husband would face from his new job could so easily destroy their marriage.
In spite of her mother’s disapproval, Katrina marries a pastor whose job immediately plucks her away from her music, her symphony, and the city life she loves and plants her in the small town of Orchard Grove, Washington.
If she knew going into her new life that she’d be sacrificing her music career for a congregation full of gossips and backbiters and that the pressure of her husband’s new job would turn him into someone she hardly recognizes anymore, she might have reconsidered marrying him in the first place.
Unfortunately, it’s too late to do anything about that now.
Or is it?
