When I was approached to be a part of the book tour for Tricia Goyer’s latest book, Sunflower Serenade, I was a bit apprehensive. Being an avid reader, I was curious, since Christian Fiction is not a genre I am overly familiar with. Compounded with the fact that I had never read any of Goyer’s previous works in her Home to Heather Creek Series I was uncertain whether or not I would be able to fully appreciate the novel and to be quite honest, I was a little nervous.
As soon as I began the novel my worries and doubts began to disappear. Sunflower Serenade was a welcoming book and I found myself easily envisioning myself on the farm in Bedford, Nebraska. The characters in this novel are quite endearing and one cannot help but feel as if one is right there, in the kitchen making pies with Charlotte, overseeing the farm with Bob, or living the excitement of the county fair through the eyes of Charlotte’s grandchildren.
Sunflower Serenade is a heart-warming novel of a loving extended family, living in rural Nebraska, gearing up for the county fair and trying to deal with having their farm used to make a country music video. The novel deals with everyday family and friendship issues everyone can relate with and Charlotte’s words of wisdom cannot help but stay with the reader long after the novel is over. I would not hesitate to recommend this novel to anyone who is looking for a nice cozy read.
I am very pleased to have been a part of the Sunflower Serenade Blog Tour and encourage my readers to see what others have to say about this heartwarming novel.
Sunflower Serenade is available through Guideposts’ Home to Heather Creek’s website.
It is a rainy Thursday Morning and I thought I would share what is running through my uncaffeinated brain this morning.
* Freshly ground coffee smells divine. Only four more minutes and the wonderful beverage shall be mine. My grey cells know this and anticipate the deep, dark, strong brew.
* We survived all the tornadic activity that surrounded us yesterday afternoon, evening, and into wee hours of the morning. For the record, I am terrified of tornadoes.
* Sheldon is growing at an alarmingly fast rate. His personality is sweet and he is brilliant pet. Now if he would just learn to love his veggies as much as his crickets, I could save a small fortune.
* The twinks are currently at the High School changing their schedules. Their older brother did this earlier in the week, a perk of being an upperclassman. It took him the better part of a day, I dread how many texts I may potentially receive from the twinks. They are only switching out Fine Arts classes, it should be simple. Trust me, I am thrilled I do not work in that office!
* The shy twin is taking drama/theatre I. I am proud, surprised, and a wee bit worried for him. Thankfully he does not read my blog.
* The outgoing twin is taking Art I. We are not an overly artistic family, so I am thrilled he is branching out. He may prove to be the artistic one in the family, time will tell. A reader asked if there was someone he liked in the class. No. The schedules are not yet known.
* My coffee is done. My grey cells will be so happy. I have a novel to finish today and mull over for a review, which is due tomorrow. I am glad it is a rainy day, they are so conducive to reading and mulling, as well as writing.
