Finding Jeena by Mirilee Ferrell

Mirilee Ferrell gets downright gritty in Finding Jeena, a book with a potentially unlikable protagonist. Jeena is an up and coming design consultant with an attitude. She's tough, independent and self-made. She's climbing to the top and no-one is going to stop her. Jeena has had to pulll herself up by her own bootstraps to succeed and if talent and determination will take her there, well, she's there already... Except that things sometimes happen that are beyond her ability to control...

Jeena's story takes the reader down a path of riches to rags. Of gaining the world, but misplacing the soul. Will Jeena find something of lasting value, or be doomed to a life of destructive choices? How can one who has been abused trust in an all powerful God who calls himself Father?

These are the questions that must be answered if Jeena is to find meaning in life when loss has been the norm.

Mirilee takes a snapshot of a woman who has it all and loses it all. Mirilee tells a really good story, but more importantly, she writes with compassion and somehow imparts that onto her readers. I'm so glad that I found Jeena too!

This week, the

Miralee Ferrell


In October 2007 Kregel Publications published The Other Daughter with excellent reviews. The Romantic Times Review magazine gave it Four out of Four and a half stars, with a very strong review. Two different major motion picture studios are currently considering the book as a possible family movie, and my second book in the series (Past Shadows) is on my publishers desk being reviewed for a possible contract offer now.

In February of 2009, Love Finds You in Last Chance, California was published by Summerside Press and Finding Jeena released in March 2010 from Kregel Publications.

Miralee Ferrell lives in Washington with Allen, her husband of more than 37 years, ans has two grown children. She serves on staff at her local church ans is actively involved in ministry to women.


Jeena Gregory thought she’d made it. She has everything a woman could ask for and a budding career promises more. But when rumors around town cast her boss in a shady light, Jeena starts to question her employer’s integrity. Was she wrong to trust this man and this job?

When the boss disappears, salaries go unpaid, and Jeena overhears several hush-hush phone calls, she realizes her carefully crafted world is crumbling. Shaken to the core at the threat of losing everything, Jeena is suddenly confronted with her prejudices─and with a God she had long forgotten.
