Just As I Am ~ New Mail-order Bride Novella from Author Faith Blum



Faith Blum's latest novella is available! This one is double trouble! Not only is it about twins, but these twins have reckless and adventurous spirits. When they go against their family, they run into more trouble than they bargained for.


About the Novella

Just as I am, without one plea
But that Thy blood was shed f or me
And that Thou bidst me come to Thee
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.


Eve and Evangeline Collins are adventurous twins who decide to take a risk and head west as mail order brides. Their parents are less than pleased, but do nothing to stop them. Eve and Eva don’t realize their danger until they stop just outside Cheyenne. Will they ever see their family again? 


My review

 I was honored to be a beta-reader for Just As I Am! Keeping in spirit with Faith's style, Just As I Am had a fun, light-hearted feel, yet straight-forward message of seeking God's will when considering a future spouse. Having five sisters, I quickly identified with Eva and Eve's comradely and thought their sistership was very sweet. I also appreciated how Faith showed one of the sisters being willing to surrender the man she admired to the Lord (you'll have to read the rest of the story to find out if she ever got him back :)).

While I found Just As I Am a clean read overall, a few areas did concern me. The main one being Eve and Eva journeyed west against their parents wishes. In the sisters' case, relationships with their family was eventually restored, but it may possibly send a confusing signal to younger readers that wise counsel can be ignored and everything still works out well in the end.

 About the Author

Faith Blum started writing at an early age. She started even before she could read! She even thought she could write better than Dr. Seuss. Now that she has grown up a little more, she knows she will probably never reach the success of Dr. Seuss, but that doesn’t stop her from trying.
When she isn’t writing, Faith enjoys doing many right-brained activities such as reading, crafting, playing piano, and playing games with her family. One of her dreams is to visit Castle City, Montana, to see the ghost town she chose for her characters to live in. She currently lives on a hobby farm with her family in Wisconsin.
