Welcome to our stop on THE PREACHER'S SON tour for B.D. Anderson. This tour is hosted by Book Nerd Tours. Today we share our 4 star review plus much more.



 
The Preacher's Son
Author: B.D. Anderson
Reading Level: Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Released: December 2, 2013
Review Source: Blog Tour


Jeremy Ferguson is caught between two worlds—the conservative, faith-based expectations of his Southern preacher father and his own ambitions to live the life of a model in New York City.

Aura Vanderleigh is similarly trapped by her own battle for self-respect, her own family’s expectations, and her dreams of a better life. As a plus-size woman, she’s been indoctrinated with the belief that she doesn’t deserve love, let alone the love of a beautiful white man. She is surprised—and intrigued—when Jeremy shows up at her church one day. And fate has something wonderful in store: true love.

When Jeremy returns home with Aura, neither is prepared for the backlash. Will Jeremy’s family be able to set aside their prejudices and accept their son’s choice for a mate? Can Aura’s family and friends learn to embrace her choice and believe that she deserves the love of such an extremely handsome and sexy man like Jeremy? Can they inspire compassion and tolerance in those who would tear them apart?


Jeremy is the son of a preacher, and his career choice is questionable. He is a working model living in New York. Not the ideal son of a preacher. Although his faith is strong, is it strong enough to withstand strong prejudices set against his fiance? Aura is an African-american, plus sized christian. Almost everyone can't believe, better yet imagine, that she is able to deserve male-model Jeremy's love and adoration. But, that is exactly the case. They are in love despite what the world wants.

The Preacher's Son is an inspiring read. True loves knows no race, size or shape. Who is to judge who can love who? Why can't Jeremy love Aura? B.D. Anderson has taken a very sensitive subject, and brought it to light with beautiful writing. It was disheartening to read what some characters thought about Aura and Jeremy's relationship, but only because I could imagine people would actually think this way. But, I found myself rooting for them! Their love is strong and I appreciated how well the book portrayed that exactly.

I also love how Anderson wrote the book in multiple points of views. Although, I do wish to know more about certain characters that left me curious as to what happens to them next! Pick up your copy of The Preacher's Son and cheer on a love that is worth fighting for!



B.D. Anderson, (Brenda Diane) has loved to read and write romance stories all of her adult life. The Preacher’s Sonis her very first published novel, but will certainly not be her last! Outside of being an author, she is also an Associate Minister at her church. Brenda is married and the mother of two adult sons.

It was quite a struggle for Brenda to write what many church people would consider ‘worldly’ romance with an underlying Christian theme, but her desire was to reach people where they are at and not to necessarily ‘preach’ at them. Her book is aimed at an audience that does not necessarily know about God, and she hopes that her book will open the door for honest discussion. Her story has been warmly embraced by her church members and they have turned out to be some of her biggest fans. Her book will be used as a tool to open the door of communication in several Women’s Groups as they seek to minister to young adult ladies.

Brenda has received a wonderful review from Penn Book Reviews and has been featured on Alliance for Independent Authors website for her desire to help other new authors to have their works published.

She had dedicated a portion of the proceeds from her book to help new authors, as well giving a portion to her own church’s ministry. Brenda hopes to have the sequel to her book finished by the end of this year.
