Sunflower Serenade Giveaway!

Do you love good Christian Fiction? I do! And this book, the newest in the Heather Creek Series does not disappoint! I fell right back into the lives of the Slater kids and their grandparents. I loved the story of the country fair and the big city girl coming to do her music video. For me, this story spoke to how God orchestrates things in our lives just Trica Goyer orchestrates the lives of her characters. Read this book. You won't be sorry!

About Sunflower Serenade: A small-town summer...
The days are long and lazy, the corn is high, the sunflowers are in bloom, and everyone in Bedford is gearing up for the biggest event of the summer: the annual county fair. But when a Nashville music producer approaches Bob about using Heather Creek Farm to film a country star's new music video, he and Charlotte are faced with a dilemma. Will they allow the glamour and enticements of big-city life to encroach upon their peaceful home? Will the excitement of celebrity drown out the simple joys of summer?

About the Home to Heather Creek series: Charlotte Stevenson's world is turned upside down when her daughter, Denise, dies in a tragic car accident. She ran away at eighteen and Charlotte has never forgiven herself. Now, Denise's children, abandoned by their father, are coming from California to live on Heather Creek Farm in Bedford, Nebraska.

Charlotte is uncertain about her ability to care for three grandchildren who are not thrilled to give up the beach and sunshine for snow and farm chores! But she sees a chance to make amends and will do whatever it takes to keep her fragile family together. Feel the courage, strength and commitment of this family as their lives unfold in the Home to Heather Creek series.

I grew up in a town of about 78,000 or so. Not huge but not small. After I married my husband, we moved all around because of his career(military). One time we ended up in a very small town. Little grocery store, K-8 school for our kids, and we ended up renting a house in the country. Out of my element being brought up "in town". On this property was our rental house along with the landlords "getaway" house. It was on a piece of land with a couple of ponds, some trails, a couple of horses...and a few sheep. The landlord even had a caretaker to take care of everything, including a garden that we had free pickings anytime we wanted. One day the gate to where the sheep were got left open and they were out in the garden. I was getting ready to leave for my job in the "city"--dress, high heels, hose--you get the picture. I couldn't find the caretaker but I most certainly did not want the garden ruined. So I go out there and in my best sheep voice said, "here sheep, here sheep" and walked back to the gated area. They followed. My kids still laugh about that story.

Oh I need a good series; since Father Tim and Mitford, I've been at a bit of a loss. I would love to get back into some wholesome, fiction reading like this.

Thanks for the review.


Sit A Spell said...'s a shame I missed this deadline. My 14 yr old loves this type of book. She is actually reading many books I read yrs ago! The story line is right up our alley too.

Have a blessed Sunday!
