    Becoming a Christian is the best and worst thing that has ever happened to Sarah Hollenbeck. Best because, well, that's obvious. Worst because, up to this point, she's made her very comfortable living as a well-known, bestselling author of steamy romance novels that would leave the members of her new church blushing. Now Sarah is trying to reconcile her past with the future she's chosen. She's still under contract with her publisher and on the hook with her enormous fan base for the kind of book she's not sure she can write anymore. She's beginning to think that the church might frown on her tithing on royalties from a "scandalous" book. And the fact that she's falling in love with her pastor doesn't make things any easier.With a powerful voice, penetrating insight, and plenty of wit, Bethany Turner explodes onto the scene with a debut that isn't afraid to deal with the thorny realities of living the Christian life.

    Being Versus Becoming presents the timeless wisdom of the Vedanta philosophy, which has its roots in the ancient teachings of Sanatan Dharma. It therefore weaves and blends meticulously while explaining to the reader the importance of living in the Present, in the Now. Being Versus Becoming offers you the opportunity to peel through the layers taking you to the core of the Truth of who you are and your purpose in life; wisdom attained through the rigorous penance and personal experience of the ancient seers. They saw how human nature attempts to achieve happiness by Doing and Becoming which is propelled by greed and desire. The secret to happiness as revealed by these ancient seers is that it is only when the mind loses the fascination for the worldly joys and turns inward to contemplate upon the Higher Self that one can rejoice in the source of the infinite joy within. It is then that he ceases to Become and is immersed in the Light of his Being, his true nature thus ending the search for happiness.

    For a disadvantaged young woman and a displaced young man, a lasting love is going to take more than chance—it’s going to take a miracle. 
    Muscle weakness has left Grace Wagler with a broken body—and her childhood best friend has left her with a broken heart. She can hold her own in the timber camp (and do everything else the other women in Badger Creek can do), but in an Amish district where women outnumber men three to one, marriage is an unlikely prospect for a girl with bad legs. 
    Ben Eicher just arrived in Michigan from Pinecraft, Florida. When his most recent shenanigans proved too much for his daed’s patience, Ben was sent to the Upper Peninsula to work in the lumber camp—and he’s neither proud of his behavior nor thrilled about his new home. 
    But when Ben meets Grace, the struggling young woman quickly piques his curiosity. Of course, the last thing Grace wants is another friendship with a man who pities her. Tired of physical pain and romantic dead ends, Grace is ready to leave Badger Creek for the muscle specialist in Ohio, even if it contradicts her father’s wishes . . . and Ben’s. 
    Meanwhile, two dangerous men have found their way into the district. It isn’t long before their unsavory plans ensnare Grace and Ben in a chase that will not only endanger their lives . . . but test their love.
