Appalachian Serenade: A Book Review

About The Book:

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

My Review:

Having read Miracle in a Dry Season recently, I was excited to be able to read this ebook novella from the same author.

While a short book, it is packed full of amazing characters, is well-written and flows beautifully, bringing to the reader to full feel they are experiencing each step that the characters do. The book is a lovely prequel to Miracle in a Dry Season, introducing you to a few of the characters in that book. Though a prequel, it works well as a stand alone novel as well. A delightful novella, with a solid romance thrown in,  that was perfect to read on a cooler Autumn evening with a cup of tea and cozy quilt.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
