Mars...with Venus Rising

By Hope Toler Dougherty


A meddling horse, paper bag floors and a flying saucer on the town square. The little town of Mars has it all--including a brand new resident who might spell heartache for one of its own. Twenty-something Penn Davenport yearns for an exciting life in the big city and wants to shed the label of orphan that she's worn for years. To achieve that dream, she must pass the CPA exam then move away from the two aunts who reared her after her parents died in a plane crash. When John Townsend'full of life and the joy of living'moves to town, he rattles Penn's view of herself, her life, and her dreams...which isn't such a bad thing until she falls for him and discovers he's a pilot.

Book Takeaway:

Reared by her great aunts after her parents are killed in an ultra light plane crash when she was six years old, Penn Davenport has always struggled with belonging. She loves God and participates in her local church, but she never saw God as a helper or refuge in times of tragedy. After meeting John Townsend, a newcomer to her sleepy little hometown, he helps her see that she is stronger than she thinks and can trust a faithful God to step out of her comfort zone and live the life He gave her. With God, she can overcome the demons from her tragic past and look forward to a full future

Why the author wrote this book:

I love exploring the idea that God gives believers a spirit of power and love, not a spirit of timidity, and He wants us to live life to the full.
