Plus, I have munchies and drinks and, of course, a Giveaway! (See below)

In PIECES OF GRANITE, my heroine, Debbie, is let down by many of those closest to her. She even has a Precious Moments figurine, “I’ll Never Let You Down”–a gift and a promise from her older brother. Despite being let down by so many, Debbie constantly tries to be strong and not let them down in return. Problem is, she can’t do it. None of us can.

Preciouis Moments - I'll Never Let You Down

But there is Someone who will never let us down, Someone who promised to be our strength, our foundation.

The Precious Moments figurine is a reminder of God’s promise to us, so I’m including that along with a paperback copy of Pieces of Granite!

“Brenda Anderson’s realistic, flawed characters and messy life situations drag the reader on a rollercoaster ride of emotions in this story of what happens when the strong one everyone leans on begins to spiral. A page turning tale of one woman’s journey of relinquishing control and finding her true self.” Award-winning author Shannon Taylor Vannatter

A distressing diagnosis
A retreating husband
A prodigal brother

Debbie Verhoeven is not your typical woman.

  • She sacrificed a counseling career to be a full-time mother
  • She’d rather pound a nail than round steak
  • Oprah? No way! Give her ESPN any day
  • Nothing could be more stressful than scrapbooking

Nothing, except …

A distressing diagnosis,
A husband who is pulling away,
And two older brothers who refuse to get along

When the counselor is caught in the middle,
when she needs to be strong for those around her,
who is left to be strong for her?

  1. I don’t think my husband would ever let me down. In your book I know she felt let down by her husband and I loved how she stayed strong in her faith in ALL things. Wishing you much success in your book launch 🙂

  2. Good luck with your book launch. I know I have already let you know, but I’ll say it again – I’ll really enjoyed it.

  3. My friends at therapy pool are always there for me. While we let the warm water release pain from our bodies, we talk and laugh. A laugh does so much healing.
    I just bought the e-book. Would enjoy having an actual copy of the book to pass along.

  4. Congratulations, Brenda! I’m not sure there is anyone who hasn’t “let me down” at some point, but most of the time is wasn’t deliberate. We are all human. We let people down without meaning to. We expect things of others that only God can give. My father (a near perfect man!) feels let down because I don’t share his political views. And I guess I feel let down because he doesn’t understand me as I used to think he did. The love is still there despite the feelings of being let down.

  5. Congratulations!! I’m so excited this book is available now. It truly is a must read – and good reading too. I’ve been busy almost every day with extra activities, but I’d reserve an hour in the evening, sometime late evening, to read this book. The 3rd day, I just read til I was done as I had to finish. Your character are realistic with real life issues. So glad that you have this talent to share with everyone!

  6. Brenda, what an accomplishment!
    I love…your cover.
    A close friend of mine used to say “celebrate the moments of our lives, not looking back or ahead” . I hope you are doing just that!

    1. Thank you, Patty!

      I agree about most parents–they never *deliberately* let us down, just as I never *deliberately* let my kids down, but it happens. Thankfully, we have a heavenly Father who will never let us down!
