Three Kregel books win awards in 2021 Foreword INDIES Awards

GRAND RAPIDS, MI — Kregel Publications is excited to celebrate three winners for the Foreword INDIES Awards for 2021. Roots of Wood and Stone by Amanda Wen won Gold in the Religious Fiction category, Husband Auditions by Angela Ruth Strong won Silver in the General Romance category, and The Unlikely Yarn of the Dragon Lady by Sharon J. Mondragón won Bronze in the Religious Fiction category.

Roots of Wood and Stone is a split-time novel about a museum curator and an intriguing diary that leads her to an old woman with Alzheimer’s, and the woman’s grandson, whom she can’t help but fall in love with. Wen’s story reveals the beauty of God’s plan and how our actions produce ripples for generations. Read more or purchase the book here.

Husband Auditions is a quirky romance-comedy about Meri Newberg, the last single woman in her Christian friend group. She’s all but lost hope of ever finding true love until she receives a strange present at a wedding—a 1950s magazine article showing “ways to get a husband”—which, in her desperation, she decides to try out.

The Unlikely Yarn of the Dragon Lady is a humorous and heartfelt story about a group of women in a prayer shawl ministry. When they’re suddenly forced to move from their comfortable church location to the public mall, they’re confronted with the reality of the people behind their formerly distant prayers, and each must decide what God is really calling them to do.
