At Home in Drayton Valley by Kim Vogel Sawyer
Hello fair readers,
The end of October crept up on me quite quickly ( and in quite the blustery fashion) and I realized I had not had a chance to finish the new Kim Vogel Sawyer before the end of the month.
But, you can't all wait for me to finish in order to learn about it....that's not fair.... not to you!
From the Publisher:
Fed up with the poor quality of life in 1880 New York, Tarsie Raines encourages her friends Joss and Mary Brubacher to move with their two children to Drayton Valley, Kansas, a booming town hailed in the guidebook as the land of opportunity. She offers to help with expenses and to care for Mary and the children as they travel west by wagon train. But when tragedy strikes on the trip across the prairie, Tarsie is thrown into an arrangement with Joss that leaves both of them questioning God and their dreams for the future.
Readers of Christian Fiction are quite familiar with Kim Vogel Sawyer's excessively readable narrative style and keen eye for the places and personages in a myriad of historical settings.
I am sure a lot of readers are experiencing the same gusty, windy, rainy, wet, horrible weather that we are in Toronto at the moment. Power-permitting, take a moment to plant this puppy on your kindle. Then, go and put the kettle on.
I received this book for review from Graf-Martin Communications on behalf of Bethany House. There is NO reason I have not completed it other than the fact that I have been reading up a superstorm (too soon?) of other books and the end of the month came very quickly.
