Appalachian Serenade: A Novella
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?

Includes an excerpt of Miracle in a Dry Season, the first full-length novel in the Appalachian Blessings series–a book New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber called, “Wonderful, simply wonderful.”

My thoughts:

This short little novella (which is free) will give you a snippet of what is to come in Miracle in a Dry Season, which doesn’t release until July 29th.

Because this is a novella there isn’t a ton of character development and things happen very quickly. However, Sarah did a good job of packing conflict and tense throughout the book and the mystery of Delilah’s past is woven throughout the book. Also, I love how the author showed that sometimes our plans are not the Lord’s, or He will answer our prayers in a much different way than we asked for.

What I think will make Miracle in a Dry Season (which I’ll be reviewing in August) so interesting is this background knowledge that comes from Appalachian Serenade. This book won’t take you long to read and if you like it I encourage you to pre-order Miracle in a Dry Season.
