More About the Author
She was a born-again believer in Jesus Christ.
Since publishing two short-stories in a monthly singles magazine called "Being Single" in 1988, she had turned her attention and focus to full-length fiction prose with faith-based themes. As a result, Vera has penned two novels and finished a third; a historical romance during the Civil War Era named "Fight the Good Fight". Fitting, as that is what Vera did until cancer took her from us.
Her first book entitled "The Way of a Heart" was completed in 1994 and serves as the prequel and groundwork for "The Sister Gospels."
Vera started work on "The Sister Gospels" in 2001, completing the final draft in 2011. It has been self-published since January 2013. She hoped her ten-year labor of love proves to be as enjoyable for her reader as it was for her breathing life into this work.
As an aside, Vera was diagnosed and battled non-Hodgkins Lymphoma cancer since August 2012, which had required Chemo, Bone Marrow Transplant and Radiation Treatments. It is a direct correlation to the trials and tribulations the four women face in "The Sister Gospels." She and her husband's faith and reliance on God is their rock and refuge much like the sisters in the story.
On 11/11/13, Veteran's Day, Vera Jean Jennings succumbed to complications from the cancer she battled for 15 months at 6:30 AM Monday morning, nearly 7 years to the day Vera and Fred met.
Thank you for your interest in Vera and her work. She continues to inspire people to this day.

minor things that caused the book to be a slow read at times. Such as, overly explaining very simple things (I didn't need to know what Greta used to spoon the eggs on a platter) and reintroducing characters two or more times using the same details that were paragraphs long. Overall I enjoyed this book and look forward to hearing more from this author!!
