If you loved Dee Henderson’s O’Malley series then this is definitely a book you must get! Finally Jennifer’s story gets to be told. This is a novella that is about 160 pages long. Jennifer: An O’Malley Love Story begins by showing us what a dedicated doctor Jennifer is. The novella also shows us her love for the young cancer victims that she treats and her tireless fight to keep them alive. We get to see how she meets her future husband Tom and how their attraction grows for each other through working together and how he introduces her to the Savior. Not only do we see her love and care for her patients but also once she knows the Lord there is an instant desire to tell her family about Him because of her love for the O’Malley’s. If you have read the O’Malley series then you know the rest of Jennifer’s story. Jennifer: An O’Malley Love Story tells the beginning of Jennifer’s battle with cancer, the heartbreak and betrayal that she felt when she heard the news and how Tom was with her from the very beginning.
I really liked Jennifer: An O’Malley Love Story but am disappointed that it was only a novella. I realize that the majority of Jennifer’s story is told throughout the rest of the O’Malley series, but I definitely would have liked to see more of Jennifer’s work with children and more of her relationship unfolding with Tom. That being said, I wouldn’t have missed this no matter what the length!
I received my copy for review from the publisher Bethany House through NetGalley.
