Emily’s Debut Novel For Sale!

I am very pleased to announce that my debut novel, Save My Children, is now available for purchase at the publisher’s website: www.castlequaybooks.com.

Soon it will also be distributed to Christian bookstores nationwide; please feel free to approach the Christian bookstore nearest you and ask for your own copy. As of November, it will also be available on Amazon.

Save My Children
is the compelling story of a young couple who became mother and father to over 800 abused and neglected children.

Harvey and Elsie Jespersen had one desire: to provide a safe place for any child needing a family.

This is a fictional retelling of the true story of the founders of Bethany Homes for Children. From 1948-1991 the Jespersens fostered up to fifty-five kids at any given time. Their home consisted of a set of old army barracks based on 42 acres of Albertan farmland. Through hard work, determination and patience, the barracks were transformed into a place of refuge for generations of children. Refusing to take any payment except what parents could afford, Harvey and Elsie depended solely on the power of prayer. Written in honour of Bethany Homes’ 60th Anniversary, Save My Children tells of love’s ability to mend hundreds of broken children through two open hearts.

Emily Wierenga is a freelance writer and artist who has served on Bethany Home ’s Board of Directors. She lives with her husband, Trent, in Blyth , Ont., and writes regularly for Christian Week, Faith Today and Adbusters. Her book Canvas Child was a finalist in the 2006 Castle Quay Books Best New Canadian Author contest.
In her spare time she enjoys travelling and watching her garden grow. For more information, visit http://www.emilywierenga.com.

All proceeds from the sale of Save My Children support Bethany Homes for Children.
