The Story

At this point in her life, bravery is not a trait Willa Hart would readily claim. She believes her seven-year-old daughter, Savannah, who never knew her father and successfully tackled chemotherapy, is truly the courageous one. Yet after Willa has a fateful encounter with handsome young doctor Patrick McCade, her outlook—and her view of herself—begins to change.

Patrick, a thrill-seeking world traveler and temporary resident of Lenox, Oregon, sets out to show Willa the value of adventure, even within her tiny town.

Bookish Question of the Week

BookishQu250I apologise for the dearth of book reviews at the moment. I’m in the midst of some serious contest reading at the moment so I’m not at liberty to post reviews, but they will be coming! In the meantime, I wanted to talk about book reviews and what you look for when seeking someone else’s opinion. Do you like them short and to the point? Or lengthy and detailed? A humourous take on the book or a review with lots of emotional content?

What do you look for in a book review?

Are you a re-reader? Why, or why not? And if you are, what are some of the books you have read over and over?

I’m no longer a re-reader, simply because there are so many new books competing for my time, but growing up, I reread my favorite books so many times that they became a bit shabby from so much handling.  Those favorites included Little Women and the Anne of Green Gables series.

I was inspired to write my first published novel by… my mom and sister. And Twilight (the book), ahem. 😉

The books that have most influenced my life are… The Chronicles of Narnia” by CS Lewis, “Ender’s Game” by Orson Scott Card, Agatha Christie, “To Be Told” by Dan Allender, “Approaching God” by Steve Brown, the Bible.

Are you a re-reader? Why, or why not? And if you are, what are some of the books you have read over and over?

I am a selective re-reader. If a story is powerfully written and I know I’m learning about the craft just from studying the author’s style and structure, I read it again and again. A few I have read more than once: Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, Mud Vein by Tarryn Fisher, and The Sea of Tranquillity by Katja Millay.
