Beetiful designed the book cover for Christmas at Whispering Pines, a holiday fiction book by Bethany Riehl.
An unspeakable tragedy has outlawed Christmas around the globe…
It’s been ten years since that awful day and Hannah is still trying to keep her daughter from remembering. Which is why when she’s unexpectedly reunited with her college friend, Joel, in the secluded town of Whispering Pines—where they openly celebrate Christmas despite the mandates—she resists all he has planned for her.
For Joel, his feelings for Hannah are as strong as ever, no matter how much she tries to convince him that she’s not the woman she once was.
As he works to restore her to her former faith in Christ and teach her and her daughter the true meaning of Christmas, she begins to believe again.
But as much as she wants to press into the love that he offers, she can’t let herself.
There’s too much about her past that he doesn’t know…
Bethany (B.D.) Riehl has been writing stories since third grade when she penned her first short story, Bug Teeth. Since then her writing has expanded to essays in college that were used by her professor to teach his English students proper “reflection” techniques. She has written articles for a local magazine and her small town newspaper. For years she has written short stories and scattered chapters and kept them between herself and the Lord.
In November of 2012, B.D. Riehl felt called to write a book to raise awareness for Destiny Rescue, an organization that rescues children from sex trafficking. The Earth is Full was released in September 2013. It's sequel, The Heavens are Telling, was released in September of 2014.
In May she released her first Christian Romance, Trending, under Bethany Riehl.
When not writing, Bethany enjoys spending time with her husband and three daughters listening to music and reading books together in their tree fort.
Riehl is committed to writing fiction that glorifies the Lord and points others to Christ. She shares family updates, embarrassing stories, and theological speculations on her blog, www.bdriehl.wordpress.com and updates her Facebook page often with the challenges and joys of writing while doing her best to raise her children and care for her husband.
