Alex Armstrong is a newcomer to Hilltop Township, and he just might be labeled that way for a few decades. Rural North Dakota doesn’t get many people moving in, so it has a culture all of its own – as does each of the two churches Alex will be leading. With disgruntled parishioners, warring congregations, and single women on the prowl, can Alex bring peace to Hilltop?
Baer’s characters are honest and real, people with real problems, but even the curmudgeons are presented as challenges, not impossibilities. If only all of us viewed those around us this way! This perspective on life and problems gives the series a sweetness that is rare.
I thoroughly enjoyed Baer’s writing style. Smooth, funny, dramatic in all the right places, she makes me long for my own piece of Hilltop.
Judy Baer was born and grew up on a farm on the prairies of North Dakota, experiencing many of the same things as her Hilltop characters. An only child, she spent most of her days with imaginary people-either those she read about or those she made up in her head.
Baer graduated from Concordia College with majors in English and education and a minor in religion. While at the time, she was simply studying what interested her, Baer later realized that she was educating herself for her future career as a Christian writer. She certainly put her education to use as she is the author of more than 75 books.
A certified professional life coach now certified in three coaching disciplines, Baer coaches primarily professional and aspiring writers. She is also a faculty advisor in the Department of Human Development at St. Mary’s University in Minneapolis, MN. Baer has two daughters and three step children. She and her husband live in Minnesota.
She invites you to visit her at her web site www.judykbaer.com for more information on her and her books.
