Loretta Eidson

Have you ever been to the theatre and sat on the edge of your seat as the intensity of suspense kept you biting your fingernails? How about Taken, Kidnapped, and A Quiet Place?

That’s what I hope you’ll experience in my novels: gripping stories, fast-paced, and full of twists, while my characters discover God’s unconditional love, the freedom of forgiveness, the value of trust, and the power of prayer.

Can you imagine what it was like for the disciples as they sat around the table visiting with Jesus and their shock when he said one would betray Him and another would deny him? Several years ago, I imagined the disciples sitting around the table laughing, talking, eating, and having an enjoyable evening with Jesus.
