Pine Island, MN (PressExposure) July 30, 2009 -- /1888PressRelease/ Sheaf House Publishers announces the August, 2009 release of Rain Dance by author Joy DeKok.
Controversial novel brilliantly examines the volatile issues of abortion and infertility.
Rain Dance delves into the often silent battles and surprising hypocrisies found in the lives of women facing these two personal crisis.
Publisher and editorial director Joan Shoup contracted Rain Dance because it fits the editorial guidelines and the commitment of Sheaf House to publish novels written with excellence, that are unafraid to dive deep into the heart of sometimes âuntouchableâ topics, and offer a powerful redemptive message for readers.
âRain Dance is the perfect fit for Sheaf House,â Shoup says. âThe author has written a beautiful story her test readers and reviewers love. She didnât shy away from the difficult and refused to end the novel with âhappily ever after.ââ
Author Joy DeKok comments, âIâm dedicated to writing with integrity â my faith demands it and the story, which is both plot and character driven, required it. I didnât choose this topic. It chose me one day while I was cleaning the house. I told God I thought it was a great idea and I hoped Heâd find an author for it. Although I argued with Him for almost a year, I realized, He already had His author. Me.â
Rain Dance joins the impressive Sheaf House line up August of 2009.
Endorser Sue Liljenberg, International Director, of Healing Hearts Ministries says, âThis book is a must read for all women. Although it is a fictional story the author has brilliantly captured the many issues that women struggle with and offers hope that can only be found in Jesus. She also shows how looking beyond our own circumstances can bring blessings into our lives and the lives of others. Iâve ministered to broken women for over twenty years and Iâm thankful for resources like Rain Dance that will reach women who are hurting and give them hope.â
Rain Dance is distributed by Ingram and APG Sales and Distribution.
