The Greatest of These : Paperback

In Paperback - The Greatest of These
by Judith Bronte

Love is the greatest of all...

Charlotte Overholt is used to responsibilities in her teenage life, but they're quickly multiplied when she learns her father has Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease. As "Charlie" adjusts to these changes, she becomes acquainted with her father's good friend, Adam Clark. When Charlie's friendship with Adam blooms into something unexpected, Adam suddenly finds himself in a situation he never dreamt possible.

Middle-aged Adam Clark is a confirmed bachelor, settled in his ways with no hope of ever changing. But this unassuming Master Plumber has a big secret that not even Charlie can anticipate, and when it comes to light, no one in their small town will ever be the same again.

Through it all, Charlie learns that love can overcome even the greatest obstacles.

A few questions answered about the paperback:

You said you'd never bring Greatest of These into paperback. What changed your mind?

A: I never thought I'd do it, mainly because I'd have to split the book into two volumes. But after one of my readers did some major begging, (and with my brother Sam urging me forward), I seriously looked into a one-volume-soultion. The result is an 8.5 by 11 inch paperback. It's 602 pages long, and each page has two columns, so it's easier to read. It's a big book. The biggest I ever intend to write. So if you absolutely, positively, have to have Adam and Charlie in your hands, here they are. For everyone else, read the website or download the free 1,090 page PDF.

The bonus Behind the Scenes in the paperback only cover the last three chapters. Why?

A: Behind the Scenes comes straight from my announcement list, but since I didn't start this feature until I was three chapters away from finishing Greatest, the Behind the Scenes for 59, 60, and 61 are all I can include in the paperback. All new online stories that I paperback in the future will include Behind the Scenes for the entire novel. (There are no Behind the Scenes for Abigail's Journey, as that story was completed before I started my announcement list.)

Can you help me with my order?

A: handles everything. I do not take or process orders, so it's best to contact their personal service with any questions you may have regarding your purchase. I have used to buy my own copy of The Greatest of These, and have found them to be first-rate in their service. Please check your cart after clicking the "Add to cart" button, and make sure that the quantity is set to 1 (unless you intend to purchase more than one copy). If you receive damaged, defective, or incorrectly packaged items, they will be happy to provide a replacement copy.
