About The Author

Drawing from more than 30 years as writer/producer and on-air voice actor for the daily 15-minute radio broadcast The Heartbeat of the Home, Cynthia Ruchti now tells stories “hemmed-in-Hope” through novels, nonfiction, devotionals, and at speaking events for women. Her books have received numerous awards, including the Carol Award, Christian Retailing’s BEST Award, and Inspirational Readers’ Choice Award, as well as being a finalist for the Christy Awards and RT Reviews Inspirational Novel of the Year. Cynthia serves on the worship team at her church and as the professional relations liaison for American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW). Cynthia and her grade school sweetheart husband live in the heart of Wisconsin, not far from their children and grandchildren. Her prayer is that through her books and speaking events, readers and audiences will gain new courage to say, “I can’t unravel. I’m hemmed in Hope.”
