ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Andrea Kuhn Boeshaar has been married for more than 30 years. She and her husband, Daniel, have three adult sons, daughters-in-law, and two precious grandchildren. Andrea’s educational background includes the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, where she studied in English, and Alverno College where she studied in Professional Communications and Business Management.
Andrea has been writing stories and poems since she was a little girl; however, it wasn’t until 1984 that she started submitting her work for publication. Eight years after that, she was convicted about writing for the Christian market. She read books in her genre (Inspirational Romance & Women’s Fiction), studied the market, and worked hard to hone her craft.
Finally her first novel was published in 1994. Since then she’s written numerous articles and devotionals. Andrea has also published inspiration romance novels, women’s fiction, and novellas.
In 2003, Andrea joined the Hartline Literary Agency and worked for Joyce Hart as a literary agent. She saw much success. But then in 2007, Andrea realized she was more of a teacher/encourager than a sales person. She left the agency and became a certified Christian life coach. Now, in addition to her writing, Andrea enjoys encouraging others to use their God-given talents and gifts to their fullest.
Andrea Kuhn Boeshaar is a certified Christian life coach and speaks at writers’ conferences and for women’s groups. She has taught workshops at such conferences as Write-To-Publish, American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW), Oregon Christian Writers Conference, Mount Hermon Writers Conference, and many local writers conferences. Another of Andrea’s accomplishments is cofounder of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) organization. For many years she served on both its Advisory Board and as its CEO.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
When Pastor Luke McCabe begins paying extra attention to her, Bethany takes his fine-sounding words with a grain of salt. She’s heard sweet talk before. This time she is going to keep her mind on the Lord and on her new teaching job in the Arizona Territory.
But when her reputation is accidentally soiled by the rakish town sheriff, Luke steps in with a marriage proposal to save Bethany’s good name. Luke is certain their marriage is God’s will…but Bethany is just as certain God must have someone else in mind to be Luke’s wife.
Someone sweet and spiritual, who knows the Scriptures better than Bethany does. Someone like Luke’s old friend from home.

Pastors Luke and Jake McCabe, who played secondary roles in the first books of Andrea Boeshaar’s Seasons of Redemption series, finally appear as primary characters in Undaunted Faith. Bethany Stafford, who also made an appearance in earlier installments, has agreed to travel with the McCabe brothers to the Arizona Territory to serve as the new schoolteacher for Jericho Junction. Unfortunately the location feels totally alien to Bethany and she can’t wait to move back east where the land is green. When Luke proposes marriage, Bethany is certain he is only trying to protect her reputation. She is determined to settle for nothing less than true love. Jake finds himself attracted to the new female doctor, Annetta Cavanaugh, whose standoffish personality covers up wounds from her past.
As tempers flare among the townspeople due to unsolved rustling and attacks that are blamed on Indians, the McCabe brothers attempt to help the sheriff keep the peace. Bethany’s compassion and impulsive nature leads her into some dangerous and life threatening situations. Plenty of suspense and action mix with romance and faith to make Undaunted Faith the perfect blend for a historical novel.
Having read and thoroughly enjoyed each of the previous books in this series, I still manage to find myself surprised at how good the newest installment is. I know that I certainly look forward to Andrea’s next series. It can’t come too soon for me.
