Author Biography

Ruth Meyer graduated from Concordia University in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with a degree in church music and no plans whatsoever to become an author. But a student of the week project for her son inspired "Our Faith From A to Z," a children's picture book. After that, it was only a matter of time before she tried her hand at fiction. As both the daughter of and the wife of a pastor, Ruth has moved around a lot and had many experiences that provide ideas for her writing. Currently, she resides in rural Texas with her husband, their five children, two dogs, and a cat. It is her hope that through her writing, readers are assured of God's grace through His Son, Jesus.

Faith Alone, the second book in Ruth E. Meyer’s Sola Series, is the story of Grace Neunaber and her family. Grace and her new husband, David, struggle to adjust to their new life together. Managing money, grocery shopping and balancing home and work schedules are just the tip of the iceberg. David must also learn how to be a father to Grace’s four children. The two youngest are happy to have a daddy, but Jackson and Faith are less enthusiastic. David has no idea how to deal with sixteen-year-old Faith’s boyfriend drama, and his efforts to discipline Jackson result in open hostility. Events transpire and soon the entire household is thrown into chaos. Grace must rely on her newfound faith in the Lord, and Faith must rely on her parents’ love and support to see them through the difficult journeys ahead of them.

This is a sweet Christian novel, full of realistic family drama. The Neunabers are relatable and likeable. Faith Alone deals with controversial topics such as tough teen issues, bullying, blended families, and the like. I was especially impressed with how it handled the question of abortion. These are difficult topics to say the least, but Meyer handles them well, and in a very Christian, faith-based manner. Meyer is a good writer and her characters are believable. They could be almost any family these days. If you’re looking for a Christian book with good morals, especially if you’re a Lutheran, this may be just what you need.
