Jody Hedlund: THE PILGRIM’S WIFE

(September 1, 2010)
Rel Mollet
Arriving this October, Jody Hedlund’s debut The Preacher’s Bride (Bethany House)—inspired by the life of John Bunyan’s second wife—tells the tale of a young Puritan maiden determined to save a motherless baby and the grieving preacher who doesn’t want another woman in his life. Hedlund explains her fascination with Elizabeth Bunyan: “I ran across an excerpt about the brave way she defended John during one of his trials when he was arrested for ‘unlicensed’ preaching. Her strength to face a court of persecutors and her determination to faithfully support her husband touched me so deeply, I decided her little- known story needed to be told. The Preacher’s Bride is the fictionalized tale of her story.”
