A lovely warm and hope-filled read, this is a romance with heart, soul and compassion. Faith is engaged, however she has a pain-filled secret, will it remain buried, or will life throw a great big strop in the midst of her wedding preparations? Faith is such an engaging character, she is easy to like and imagine as a friend. Occasionally the novel floats back in time, revealing Faith’s past, piece, by often jagged piece. As with Beth Moran’s previous titles, there is more to this captivating romance than the traditional will they, won’t they scenario. The author excels in making her characters feel real, she looks at the darker side of life, yet fun and frolics also abound. ‘The Name I call Myself’ is thought-provoking, yet it’s also ready to put a great big smile on your face, how delightful! ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

The Name I Call Myself by Beth Moran

All Faith Harp wants is a quiet life - to take care of her troubled brother, Sam, earn enough money to stop the wolves snapping at her heels, and to keep her past buried as deep as possible. And after years of upheaval, she might have just about managed it: she's engaged to the gorgeous and successful Perry, is holding down a job, and Sam's latest treatment seems to actually be working this time. But, for Faith, things never seem to stay simple for long. Her domineering mother-in-law-to-be is planning a nightmare wedding, including the wedding dress from hell. And the man who killed her mother is released from prison, sending her brother tumbling back into mental illness. When secretly planning the wedding she really wants, Faith stumbles across a church choir that challenges far more than her ability to hold a tune. She ends up joining the choir, led by the fierce choir-mistress, Hester, who is determined to do whatever it takes to turn the motley crew of women into something spectacular. She also meets Dylan, the church's vicar, who is different to any man she has ever met before.

About the Author

Beth Moran

Beth Moran grew up in a Nottinghamshire before studying biochemistry at Leeds, working as a scientist in Liverpool, and then as an antenatal educator back in Nottinghamshire.

Following some deep soul searching, Beth embarked on her next adventure. By the time she’d tapped out the first chapter she knew she’d found what she was born to do, and suddenly all those hours spent daydreaming made sense.

When not writing novels, Beth works as a bid writer, and is part a church leadership team, running a youth club and the annual ladies’ night where she gets to dig out her dancing shoes.

Having overcome childhood selective mutism, Beth regularly speaks at conferences and on BBC Radio Nottingham’s Pause for Thought. She is a trustee of Free Range Chicks, a women’s network, and I still living in Nottinghamshire with her husband and three children.
