Loving: An Inspirational Fiction Novel

By Hannah Lahmeyer

Great news PHers! My friend just published a novel and the main character has pulmonary hypertension.  Seriously!  This book is a great way to help others understand our disease and to raise awareness.  Here is what the author, Corin Hughs, has to say about it:

Loving is an inspirational fiction novel whose main character has pulmonary hypertension!  I wrote this book to honor my friend, Hannah Lahmeyer, who has pulmonary hypertension, similar to the character Hannah in the book. This book tackles the hard realities of life and faith in a way that will both challenge and inspire you. I believe the characters in this fictional story will resonate with you long after you've read the last word.

I hope this book will not only encourage those with pulmonary hypertension, but that it also may be used to educate others on this rare, complex disease. I’d love PH patients to be able to give it to friends and family as the perspectives and insights in the book may better help others to understand and support their loved one with PH.  I am so excited for you to read Loving!

Hannah Mattox longs to be a mother. But her heart disease, pulmonary hypertension, precludes her from safely bearing children. Karla Valez is a homeless prostitute who despises the “thing” growing inside her and hopes to kill it in-utero with the drugs that have ruled her life—and buried her painful past—for nearly five years.  Gabriella Greene, founder of the Sanford Crisis Pregnancy Center, finds herself the bridge between these two women.  A time when questions far outweigh answers, there is one most pressing: why would God allow this?  

Weaving together the lives of three very different women, Loving will take readers on an emotional journey that reveals one common thread: they each need to surrender to a God who loves.

Order the Book:
The book is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, but Corin would love for you to order through her website so she can write you a personal note in the book! Corin Hughs website

Corin & Hannah with their children
Corin Hughs wrote her first “book” the summer after third grade, an illustrated children's book about the principle of compromise (the main characters were pigs!). Many years have passed since that book, but she never stopped writing. Her first novel, Loving, released in October 2013. Corin married her high school sweetheart nearly 10 years ago, and they have three young children. Please visit Corin Hughs website or “Like” her on Facebook Corin Hughs Facebook page to learn more.
