About the Author
Hi, I’m Alyce-Kay (Hanush) Ruckelshaus, founder of Threshold of Hineni. I’m passionately addicted to God, despite some pretty bad experiences in church. I’m a girl who is cherished by God, even though I tried to scare Him away. I’m ardent about helping you trust Him and discover that He wants to lavish you with His affection. If you have had experiences that should turn you off from God, but you still feel drawn toward Him … we need to talk. I met my husband, Bill, online in 2014 and we got married later that year. I’m a hot mess, but he’s totally crazy about me … and that gives me a ton of hope and joy. We currently live on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with two dogs and a cat. My greatest passion in life is to see people unleashed to be who God calls them to be. That’s what’s behind my teaching, my writing, etc. It’s why my heart drags me to broken people. Those of us who have been wounded and broken are the ones God mends and heals. He whispers His greatest dreams into our hearts. It’s the brokenness that makes us more pliable, once the brittleness is gone. And it’s the emptiness that enables us to be filled. About Threshold of Hineni: Hineni is a Hebrew word that means Here I am. I think of it in the sense of This is me, just as I am, with all my quirks and gifts and failures. I love that God accepts me that way. It also means, Here I am, send me, use me, in the sense of Abraham, Moses, and Isaiah being willing to go wherever God wants them to go and do whatever He wants them to do. It’s been my lifetime prayer, as well. A threshold is what you cross when you go through a doorway. It means that you’re entering or exiting … perhaps coming home after a long day … or heading out into a fresh adventure. It smells of home fires and comfort and healing. It also affirms a new beginning. My dream and my prayer is to be instrumental in helping people come to the Threshold of Hineni. The prayer I pray as I work is always that my readers and the recipients of my artwork would grow closer to God and know Him well enough to follow Him wherever He takes them, to be able to stand on the threshold, whether going out or coming in, and say, “Hineni.” And just in case you were wondering … My Isaiah Cadre series is my first set of novels. They say you should write what you know, so the settings are various places I’ve lived. I got my bachelors in Religious Studies (emphasis in theology and Greek) from Westmont College in 1983.

I have read all of the books in this series and I have to say this is my favorite so far. The author does an excellent job of creating the characters so that you feel like you know them. I greatly enjoy the family as a whole and the fact that you stay in contact with the characters from the previous books. It is a light and enjoyable read while also dealing with real issues in the life of a Christian. I didn’t want to put the book down and definitely recommend it.- (Vick D. Book Bargains and Previews 20110120)
This book was absolutely charming. The main characters have genuine struggles throughout the book and I was intrigued by the business and law elements, which is why I read it. I enjoyed the diversity the author was able to display, with the different cultures and monetary backgrounds. – (Prism A Girl of Many Colors 20110214)
A Case for Love was well worth the read. It reminded me of the much more innocent love stories that I read as a teen. I would definitely recommend this one to anyone who just wants a nice, smut-free romance. – (Jennifer Krauskopf Good Reads )
A Case for Love by Kaye Dacus is the third installment of Brides of Bonneterre series. It’s a Christian fiction, but it was written in a way that would not make you feel that this is a Christian-romance fiction. The only thing that distinguish this book with other regular fiction book is that there’s no steamy sex scene and whatnot. Instead, encouragement and the emphasize that God has plan for us all was delicately inserted appropriately throughout the entire story. – (Elizabeth Toh Over A Cuppa Tea )
