Bitterness is an emotion that can steal our joy and leave us trapped in an abyss of darkness. It hinders our relationships, isolating our hearts from the ability to give or accept love, and separating us from God. Bitterness can stem from many different sources, whether it be a loss, unmet expectations, or circumstances that lead us to believe everyone is against us.
Author Jodie Wolfe creates novels where hope and quirky meet. Her latest novel, To Claim Her Heart, tells the story of Elsie Smith, a woman in 1890’s Oklahoma who has shut out the world due to her bitterness. This novel draws on historical fact surrounding the Cherokee Strip Land Run, which occurred 125 years ago on September 16th, 1893.
