“Spiritwind” from Christian Faith Publishing author Joyce Rone is an inspiring novel about Abby, the sixteen-year-old daughter of a St. Louis church pastor, who harbors dreams of material wealth and social status even while her parents live a godly life wholly committed to Christ—only to find that her papa has given up the church to begin home mission work in Kansas, bringing the family with him and thus destroying Abby’s dreams, not realizing that God has another plan for her life.

“Spiritwind”: a stirring novel about a young girl’s wayward heart learning to honor God above all else. “Spiritwind” is the creation of published author Joyce Rone, a veteran in higher education and children’s church ministry who enjoys the outdoors and lives in the Ozark Mountains of North Central Arkansas.

Rone writes of her protagonist’s materialistic dreams: “But what I noticed even more were the men and women driving around in fancy carriages. The ladies were dressed in elegant attire with matching hats, gloves, and bags. I was green with envy from the first time I set eyes on these couples. As I began to observe how other people lived, my future goals began to grow even more. I was determined that one day I would live this lifestyle and obtain this stature in life. I could only imagine the beautiful homes they lived in, and their social life was more than I could comprehend, but this is what I wanted in life more than anything else. I wanted to have wealth and a place in society, and someday that would be mine. In spite of my meager background, I was confident I could use my femininity and intelligence to get what I wanted.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Joyce Rone’s new book is a timeless one that speaks to the worldly desires and ambitions of a generation that frequently finds themselves looking for more.

Rone’s novel reflects not only the relatable shortcomings of a young, rebellious heart but also how the unwavering faith of others can be a blessing to those around them. Ultimately, Rone’s moving book makes clear that God does not easily give up on those who give up on him.
