Lori Copeland is one of the famous authors of America who has written more than 95 novels based on the romance and christian, and fiction genres. She was born on June 12, 1941 in the United States and had a relatively delayed start to her writing career. Lori published her first written work in the year 1982, at the age of 40. Over the next decade, she received a lot of name and fame because of the success of her romance novels. Her success as one of the prominent authors of the romance genre can be understood from the fact that she went on to a number of prestigious awards in her career, such as a the Reviewer’s Choice Award by the Romantic Times, the Best Seller Award by the Waldenbooks’, and The Holt Medallion. Lori has also been inducted into the Hall of Fame of Missouri Writers. In spite of receiving a lot of success from her mainstream romantic novels, she decided to switch to a new subgenre known as the Christian romance, in the year 1995.

At one point of time in her career, author Lori has also collaborated with the authors Virginia Smith and Angela Elwell Hunt for writing a series of novels based on the Christian romance. She has been happily married to her husband Lance for more than 40 years and the couple lives in Springfield, Missouri. Lori likes the place very much as it is surrounded by the lovely Ozarks. She and her husband live with their 3 grown sons, 3 daughter-in-laws, 6 grandchildren, and 2 great granddaughters. Whenever she is not busy with her writing work, Lori likes to be actively involved in the activities of the church along with her husband. She also remains frequently active in the works of supporting missions in Mali, West Africa through the group ‘School to the Nations’. When author Lori Copeland began writing for the book market of the Christian genre after writing for many years for the secular book market from 1982 to 1995, she had sensed that was getting called by God for using her gifted art of writing for honoring Him. As of today, she has been able to sell over three million copies of her novels in print because of the immense success of her books among the readers all over the world. Over the years, Lori has developed a huge following among her growing fans in the market of inspirational books.

During her writing career, author Lori Copeland has written around 10 novel series. One among them is the ‘Brides of the West’ series, which consists of a total of 6 novels published between the years 1998 and 2004. The series deals with the lives of the three female characters, Faith, Hope, and June Kallahan. They are desperate in needs of husbands and hence they answer an advertisement for the mail order brides. Over the course of the series, it is shown that their matrimonial prospects are in Cold Water, Michigan, which seems to be nonexistent virtually. Therefore, the 19 year old Faith Kallahan and her sisters June and Hope Kallahan go out on an adventure of their lifetime. The first novel of this series was published by the Tyndale House publishing house in the year 1998. It was titled ‘Faith’. The plot of the novel revolves mainly around the life of the first Kallahan sister, Faith. In the opening sequence of the plot of the novel, the Kallahan sisters come across and advertisement which says that women with high morals, religious upbringing, and a strong sense of taking up adventure are required if they are willing to marry God-fearing and decent men. The applicants are ordered to apply through mail and must wait for at least a couple of months for getting an answer. Seeing themselves perfectly fit to the requirements of the matrimonial advertisement, Faith, Hope, and June decide to apply. After a little while, they come to know that their matrimonial prospects in the little town of Michigan were virtually nonexistent. Hence, the 19 year old Faith Kallahan answers an advertisement for the mail order brides, along with her sisters June and Hope. And before she understands anything, she is set on the way to Deliverance in Texas for marrying a wealthy rancher named Nicholas Shepherd. When Faith arrives in Deliverance, sparks begin to fly between her and her about to become husband Nicholas. The strong-willed and tomboy nature of Faith seems to match with equally with that of Nicholas Shepherd. But, a series of postponements of their wedding and several interferences cause union of Nicholas and faith look less likely to happen. Meanwhile, the two begin to care about one another, but their stubborn nature seems to be a barrier between them forever.

The second novel of the series was published under the title ‘June’. It was published by the Heartquest publishing house in the year 1999. The plot of this novel deals with the life of the second Kallahan sister, June. In the opening sequence of the plot of the novel, as June sets out to meet her mail-order husband, who is a Washington State preacher, author Lori Copeland tries to tell the readers that God is always faithful to us even when we are unaware about his plans and purposes in our lives. She also tries to deliver an entertaining and light-hearted story with important moral values and Christian beliefs. As June leaves her hometown in Michigan and arrives in Seattle, she comes to know that Eli Messenger, who is the assistant of a well known evangelist called as Isaac Inman, is ill. After a little while, he dies and June continues to stay in Seattle and begins to work at an orphanage. Soon, she realizes that Isaac is trying to let the orphans go in order to build a tabernacle. As she tries to convince Issac about the errors of his different way of thinking with the help of Parker Sentell, one of Eli’s friends, a romance begins to blossom between her and Parker. June begins to keep herself away from the crusade of Isaac Inman and tries to help out the Aunt of her friend who operates the local orphanage. When her heart gets pulled towards the needs of the orphanage, she begins to think whether it is the will of God to allow the building of the tabernacle or it is just the lustful intention of Isaac. The novel proved to be an enjoyable read to a majority of the readers and helped author Lori to establish herself as a well known writer of the Christian romance genre.

One Response to “Lori Copeland”

  1. Judy: 3 years ago

    I am the same age as you and recently found time to READ and it is my passion. I recently started reading your books and I am thoroughly enjoying them, especially “Faith”. When I was a child, I read the “House on the Prairie” series and later watched them on TV. So I enjoy pioneer, christian books and find yours delightful. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful talent with the world. We all need some hope and laughter in our lives, especially during this pandemic. Is there anyway you could send me a complete list of your books in chronological order? Right now I am reading your large print books but am having cataract surgery soon so hope to be able to read the regular print books. Thank you and keep up the wonderful writings and inspirations you are giving me and many others. Hugs, Judy
