An Abbotsford author has been nominated for the Governor General’s Literary Non-Fiction Award.

Trudy Beyak, a former long-time Abbotsford News reporter, released The Mother Heart of God: Unveiling the Mystery of the Father’s Maternal Love earlier this year.

The book, published by FaithWords (a division of the Hachette Book Publishing Group), discusses the nature of God as seen through the eyes of more than 50 leading scholars and celebrities from North America to the Middle East.

The Governor General’s Literary Awards are given annually to the best English-language and the best French-language book in each of the seven categories – fiction, literary non-fiction, poetry, drama, children’s literature (text), children’s literature (illustration) and translation (from French to English).

Finalists will be announced in October, and the winners in mid-November.
