Book Spotlight: "When Beauty Blooms" by Victoria Lynn!



Hey everyone!  Today I have a book spotlight for a fantastic novelette, When Beauty Blooms by Victoria Lynn.

This is a very sweet story about a young woman struggling to fit in during the Revolutionary War.  I was given an advanced reader copy of it and you can find my full review HERE, but I want to add that it was very easy to fall in love with the characters.  Very engaging!  If you're looking for one more book to read for summer, you'll definitely want to check it out!  It's available now at Amazon on Kindle & paperback. 



When Beauty Blooms Synopsis: 

"Revolutionary War Era England

Marjorie Kirk is a woman with no fortune, no prospects, no family, and no skills.  Or so she thinks.  She is awkward, shy, and the farthest thing from any semblance of a society lady.  

The new minister keeps turning up the most awkward of places and she can't help but feel that her life is doomed to one of embarrassment.  But will her flaws actually be the thing that others find the most attractive?

A story of a young woman with social anxiety and how she learned to bloom."

Week In Review: From Zero to Sixty

I wish I would have thought about taking a picture of my class to-do list this week before I started crossing things off, because it totally filled an entire copy page...with small handwriting. But the important thing is that it's done with.  Mostly. For another week.

 Anyway.

Currently reading: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comics and Star Wars: The Last Jedi by Michael Reaves.  (Non-canon.) I'm also reading Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman, partly for school and partly out of interest due to the Thor movies by Marvel (although it's Loki I'm reading up on). 

Current projects: My Compass Home, formatting A Town Nativity for publication, and I'm getting ready to start play practices for my church's 150th anniversary play.  I honestly don't know how many words I wrote this week, but between this week and last, I filled half of a composition book and then wrote on the computer some as well, if that counts for anything. 

Current Bible verse: Peace I leave with you, …

Blog Tour: Review of "Beyond Her Calling" by Kellyn Roth!

Hey everyone! Instead of the boring "writing tips" post that I had planned for you guys this week, I am excited to be reviewing Kellyn Roth's new release, Beyond Her Calling, as part of the her blog tour. This was a beautiful book and I loved pretty much every part of it. Let's get to it, then!
Beyond Her Calling "At twenty, Ivy Knight feels as if she hasn't accomplished anything of worth. Her life stretches on before her, empty and pointless. Though her faith in God and her mental abilities have strengthened, she still doubts herself. Does God have a purpose for a socially awkward, often confused and frightened young woman?
Jordy McAllen has just returned to Scotland after his education in London. Though he has accomplished a lot for a farm lad such as himself, he fears that what everyone has always said about him may be true: he won't really make a good doctor. Determined to prove himself, Jordy snatches up the opportunity to become the doctor in …
