Amy Inspired

Amy Inspired by Bethany Pierce is a book written about me. Ok, well not really, but it easily could have been. I totally and completely identified with Amy Gallagher. I loved this book. I laughed and I recognized a lot of my life in this story. Pierce is a good writer, she paints the picture well of her story. I think the story is beautiful and real. Very nice story!

About The Book: Amy Gallagher is an aspiring writer who, after countless rejections, has settled for a career as an English professor in small-town Ohio just to pay the bills. All her dreams suddenly start to unravel as rejections pile up - both from publishers and her boyfriend. But just as Amy fears her life is stuck in a holding pattern, she meets the mysterious, attractive, and unavailable Eli. She struggles to walk the fine line between friendship and something more with Eli, even as staying true to her faith becomes unexpectedly complicated. When secrets, tragedy, and poor decisions cause rifts in Amy's relationships, she must come to terms with who she's become, her unrealized aspirations for her life, and the state of her faith. Can she dare to hope that she will find love and fulfillment despite it all?

About The Author: Bethany Pierce was born in Mount Vernon, Ohio to a Christian minister and an elementary school art teacher who encouraged the reading of books by storing the television on a microwave stand in the hall closet. In 2006, she graduated from Miami University of Oxford, Ohio with a B.F.A. in painting and an M.A. in creative writing. Her first novel, Feeling for Bones, was named one of the best books of 2007 by Publishers Weekly. Presently, she lives in Charlottesville, Virginia where she writes and paints as a member of the McGuffey Art Center.
