The Preacher's Bride by Jody Hedlund

I picked up this story as a free Kindle read and as of Sunday evening, it was still free.

I absolutely loved this read.  It was a refreshingly good story after my last read (which you may recall that I had to finish because it was a review book).  Set in the 1600s among the Puritans of England, this was a historical fiction novel from a time period I really hadn't read much from.  The story about recently widowed Puritan preacher John Costin and his love for his new housekeeper ended up being a fictionalized version of the life of John Bunyan.

Even before I discovered the historical basis for the story, I thoroughly enjoyed the dynamic characters and rich story line.  The story was interesting enough to keep me up late last night reading and reading and moving enough to leave me sniffling back tears when I finished it tonight.  I'll definitely be on the lookout from anything else by this author!
