ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
I hold a BA and MA degree in English, and I am proud to be represented by Mary Sue Seymour, AAR. I have published over one hundred articles in Christian family magazines, and have received over two dozen awards from Romance Writers of America chapter groups. I am honored to be a member of Romance Writers of America, American Christian Fiction Writers, and Faith Hope and Love.
I live and teach in the Texas hill country with my husband, cats, and a rather large herd of deer. Our four children have flown the nest; however, we are fortunate that they all live close enough to visit.
I have always felt that my faith was at the very center of who and what I am, and I am thrilled beyond words to be able to now write about something that is so near to my heart. At various times I have served as a pianist, teacher, church secretary, and worship team member. While living in the Dallas area, I served as an adjunct professor of English Literature at Dallas Baptist University. When we moved to a small town in Central Texas, I continued teaching for a few years, but I now write full-time and I play the keyboard in our church’s praise band.
My grandfather was born in Albion, Pennsylvania, and I am currently researching whether I might have Amish roots.
ABOUT THE BOOK
This novel surprised me. normally i cannot get through amish novels anymore because they go to slow and just don't catch intrest. but this one kept me engaged from the start. i was pleasantly surprised with the story and the grip it had on the reader. one problem i had with it was it really wasn't that christmasy. it mentioned a christmas gathering at the end but that was pretty small and nothing worth really considering it a christmas novel. it was a great novel other than that. had some intersting characters no oddballs though. it was just a basic average novel nothing too spectacular but nothing too boring about it either.
thanks to abingdon/cfba for providing this novel in exchange for the review.
