Appalachian Serenade by Sarah Loudin Thomas (18)

Delilah Morrissey has always wanted to be a mother, but when she becomes a young widow, that dream now seems farther away than ever. Unable to continue to live alone in Chicago, her only option is to accept her sister's offer to move in with her family back in West Virginia. Will Delilah have the faith to pursue a new dream--even if it means giving up the old?

In this charming novella, debut novelist Sarah Loudin Thomas introduces readers to Wise, West Virginia--a small town nestled in an Appalachian valley where the everyday miracles of life and faith play out in stories of healing, hope, and love.

REVIEW:
Bring on, Miracle In A Dry Season!
This story was a great warmth to my heart. It helped I read it Valentine's week, so the feel of love was in the air.
Robert and Delilah are so cute together. Too bad it isn't until the very end of the story that they actually come together, but the dynamic between them for the whole story was pretty obvious they needed each other. 
This story reminded me that God has a plan for us, whether we know what to do or not, he will get us there. Faith is all you need, then the hard work pays off. Whatever it is you do. If it's a job, family or personal relationships, God has what we need and if we don't have it then, faith will get us there.
I look forward to reading more from this author. Especially if it's a lead off of this one!

4/5

  2. I really enjoyed this book as well. Looking forward to reading the next one even though it doesn't really follow Robert and Delilah (I don't think). Nice review.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
