About the book:
An Unlikely Blessing is a heartfelt story about a new pastor and life-long city dweller Alex Armstrong, who reluctantly accepts his first assignment, a two-point parish in the wilds of North Dakota . Hilltop Township , a farming community, blooms from the prairie like a wild pink rose—lovely and prickly all at once, much like the people who live there.
Reading "An Unlikely Blessing" was an unexpected warm and joyful experience. From the first page the reader will feel like an unseen guest who had been invited to pull up a chair at Reverend Alex's homey and welcoming kitchen table for a cup of coffee and a heaping helping of news about the close-knit, familial community of Hilltop township.
As the daughter-in-law of a country preacher, I was amazed and delighted at the charming description of the pastoral assignment Alex Armstrong had undertaken, and I found myself wishing that my husband's parents had been able to experience the outpouring of love and warmth that Reverend Alex was given by his congregation at Hilltop Community Church. Their life as "trouble-shooting" pastor brought in to sooth troubled congregations was often hard (much like what Alex experienced with the All Saints congregation, his "other" church), and I know they would have adored the jewel-box of a church and the adorable parsonage Alex was so fortunate to have been given charge of.
