Like many aspiring writers, Amy Gallagher is losing her confidence after countless rejections in Amy Inspired (Bethany House), written by Bethany Pierce. After wondering how in the world she’ll pay the bills, Amy accepts a job as an English professor in a small Ohio town. Adding additional fuel to her angst is a diminished relationship with her current boyfriend. Just when hope is feeling especially grim, she meets an attractive, charming, unavailable man who really shakes things up in her life—for good and for bad, something she’s forced to reconcile as she investigates the state of her faith and dreams. “Ultimately, Amy Inspired is about overcoming the fear of rejection and about redefining the nature of success from a biblical standpoint,” says Pierce. “As Amy nears 30, realizing she may never be the best-selling novelist she’d hoped to become—or the wife, or the mother, or the brilliant academic—she finally begins to look for counter-cultural ways to evaluate and define success.”
