AT HIS COMMAND by Brenda Coulter

Part of the Homecoming Heroes series from Steeple Hill, AT HIS COMMAND is a Christian novel featuring Madeline Bright and Jake Hopkins. Jake survived a military helicopter crash and lives with the guilt that his best friend died. Maddie is a constant reminder that although he lived, he will never lead a normal life.

The characters in this book are very real and and easy to relate to. Jake struggles with a future that he sees only as grim while Maddie tries to get him to see her as something more than his best friend's kid sister. Just when she is ready to give up on him, both of their mothers step in for a few coincidental meetings. God bless meddling moms.

This book is filled with faith-encouraging scenes that aren't at all preachy. The characters handle adversity with very human responses while relying on Godly wisdom and intervention. AT HIS COMMAND is a must read for anyone who has hungered for an opportunity to peek into other people's lives and see how it is possible to rally when your plans are shattered.

AT HIS COMMAND will be available in stores Aug. 26 but can be ordered now from Please visit Brenda's blog, No rules. Just write.
