New novel is a first for Kathleen Friesen

Local author Kathleen Friesen is thrilled to have her first book published and will celebrate with a book signing at Coles Books in the Village Green Mall on Saturday.

Melody’s Song, a contemporary Christian novel, chronicles one fragile woman’s journey from worrier to warrior and how that impacts her life and those around her. Readers join Melody as she faces demonic attacks, domestic violence, and the revelation of a secret that could destroy everything she’s gained. Will she finally triumph? Or will Melody be devastated beyond hope?

“The first two chapters were written as an assignment for my course with Christian Writers Guild,” said Friesen. “But the characters wouldn’t leave me alone. I just had to finish their story.”

The result is a novel that Friesen hopes will challenge her readers to plunge into the adventure that God has planned.

Melody’s Song is published by WestBow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson.

Friesen’s signing takes place at Coles on Saturday from noon to 3 p.m.
