New Novel, Family Secrets – Divine Destinies by Nancy Petrey
In these pages, characters live a genuine faith, a life of prayer, and a commitment to their moral values. God is an actor in the story as the simple and direct faith of the characters is put into action.
The word "God-incidence"
Some may imagine that a book of this nature will be preachy and boring. But here the action, the romance, and the developing relationships of the characters do any preaching needed, and the reader simply enjoys the story.

And what a novel it is, telling the story of two Jewish people coming to know Jesus-Yeshua as their Messiah, one of the most wonderful things that can happen in this world. So, enjoy the story ... and watch for my guest appearance along the way!"

Nancy Petrey is first a beloved child of God, a widow of an anointed preacher and pastor, mother of four children and grandmother of 17. She has authored seven books, including this, her first work of fiction. She has a degree in piano and voice, served in the churches alongside her husband Curtis in music ministry, and now is pianist of her local church. God called her to be a Mizpah for Israel in 1995.
