Novelist Arlene Ussery explores the power and the mystery of a true relationship with God in a detail-filled thoughtful presentation of Biblical characters...It is very good reading and I highly recommend it.
-Jack Conner, Superintendent, Evangelical Methodist Church, USA
A gripping book that reveals how God relates to individuals through the passages of their lives. A wonderful combination of fiction with the careful study and insightful understanding of social and religious customs makes a profoundly rick reading experience.

Hannah’s Promise is very moving book. I enjoyed it very much--both times I read it.

Praises for Transformed in Bethany
(soon to be reprinted)
Delightful, skillfully crafted characters quickly become friends. Witnessing their transformation as their friendship with Jesus grows, makes one long for the same daily familiarity: Jesus just dropping by for a meal, to help paint a room, or prune the roses. Great character and context development! Great storytelling!
-Donna Guerrero, Salvation Army
Definitely an excellent read! Well worth the time and price. It shows Jesus as a real person--fully God and fully man--all the time.
-Norman Hookway, Florida
Ussery has a gift for revealing the inner workings of a soul being transformed by the process of salvation.
-Victoria Richards, California
Remarkable book! Very readable, good Christian literature. Excellent story line, research on the times and customs, and humanizing of these Bible characters. I found nothing that in anyway conflicted with the Biblical account. I found it easy to identify with the stress expressed by the characters. Excellent use of words to show emotions. I was deeply moved.
-Forest Yoder, Colorado
I recommend it to anyone, young or old, ones who know the Bible very well and those who have never read it, believer or non-believer.
-Berly Watson, England, UK
The book,Transformed in Bethany, touched my life. I can truly say that I have come to better understand Jesus’ love and how I can trust him completely no matter what my need is. My desire is for Jesus to transform my own life, as he individually did the lives of Mary, Martha and Lazarus. I want Him to show me any destructive lies and replace them with His truth, so that I can also be all that God wants me to be.
