At last! THEN CAME LOVE is available in PRINT or E-BOOK!

More good news about Then Came Love !! This book of my heart just won second place in the prestigious Inspirational Readers' Choice Awards' long historical category for 2015. Then Came Love came in second after MaryLu Tyndall's exciting pirate novel, first place winner The Ransom . My novel shares second place with Karen Witemeyer's Full Steam Ahead. Jody Hedlund's Love Unexpected took third place. I know you'll want to check out all of these great novels.

I'm pleased and thrilled to announce the release of my brand new book, Then Came Love, a book of my heart that I've worked to get published for six years.

Brand new January 28, 2015:
Then Came Love is now available in print at https://www.createspace.com/5268698. Please take a look!

Love does not seek what it can get but what it can give, which is everything.

“And now abideth faith, hope, and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” I Corinthians 13:13 (KJV)

Louisa Maria Downs has waited three long years for her soldier-sweetheart’s homecoming. But when he returns, John Jacobs stands aloof, his deep blue eyes revealing his longing for her, but his lips strangely silent. Convinced it is God’s will for them to marry, Louisa defies decorum and pursues the man who has owned her heart since she was twelve years old.

John Jacobs has spent three years fighting to keep the Union intact. Now back home, he longs to marry the young woman he has admired since boyhood. But shattering memories of what he did during the war magnify the bloodstains on his hands. He awakens each day more certain than ever that he is not worthy of the love of a decent woman, much less the love of God.
Torn apart by the Civil War, two young couples find restoration through love, grace, and forgiveness.

Here are some endorsements:

In Then Came Love, Louise M. Gouge has masterfully woven unforgettable characters into a tale of forgiveness and grace that will touch your heart and keep you thinking long after you have turned the final page. Set during the Reconstruction Era following the Civil War, the message of this story remains significant today. Judith Miller, best-selling author of the Home to Amana series and The Brickmaker’s Bride.

Louise M. Gouge made me care deeply about all her characters from the first page. I began reading Then Came Love and was pulled in and couldn’t look away as the story unfolded with Gouge’s trademark captivating, heart-wrenching human drama. So wonderful, gripping, and engrossing! Mary Connealy, author of Tried and True.

I've been trying to get this book in print for six years. Finally, I've put it on e-book. Please check it out at Then Came Love!

Ok, when will this be in regular book form? I've been waiting for it quite awhile. Don't have a Kindle and don't have any intentions of getting one.
