Appalachian Serenade by Sarah Loudin Thomas

Last week, I read Appalachian Serenade by Sarah Loudin Thomas, which is a novella that falls into the Christian Fiction genre. I don't read Christian Fiction all that often, but thought I'd read this one as it has received a lot of 4 and 5 star reviews on Amazon. 

Plus, I'm always on the look out for new authors or at least new authors me any way! I find that novellas are the perfect way to become acquainted with new author as you an discover their writing style to see if it fits/suits your interest without making a large commitment to reading a full length novel.

I enjoyed reading Appalachian Serenade. It is short and sweet, which makes for a good read while commuting by train or plane. Or if you simply wish to escape while you're hanging out at your favorite destination for the afternoon! 

The following is a plot summary for Appalachian Serenade from Amazon's website:
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.

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

Until my next post, happy reading!!
