BLOG TOUR: A VERY BOOKISH THANKSGIVING SPOTLIGHT + PARTIAL REVIEW!

Wednesday, October 21, 2020

 

 


Hey everyone!  Today I have the honor of sharing a spotlight for A Very Bookish Thanksgiving, releasing Monday October 26th!  Read on for more information about this sweet collection of classic-inspired stories, and make sure to check out my short review of A Fine Day Tomorrow, Amanda Tero's story in this collection!  



Five stories.
Five book-lovers.
Five Thanksgiving novellas inspired by five classics.
This is a limited-edition novella collection with contributions by five different authors.

The Promise of Acorns ~ Kelsey Bryant
Erin Moore is a nanny whose strained relationship with Thanksgiving becomes even more complicated when her new employer asks her to teach his grandchildren about the holiday. The results surprise them both.
Inspired by Jane Eyre

 


As Long as I Belong ~ Sarah Holman
Young Analise Marshall has always felt like she straddles two worlds, like Jane Austen’s Fanny Price. Yet, near Thanksgiving, she faces the fact she might soon not belong anywhere at all.
Inspired by Mansfield Park

 


The Windles and the Lost Boy ~ Rebekah Jones
All Lost Boys could find refuge with Patrick Quill. Jeremy might do the same—if he could find him and if Patrick is real.
Inspired by Peter Pan

 


Grand Intentions ~ J. Grace Pennington
Pippa has always dreamed of being a great novelist, but between her job and helping her mom raise her three younger brothers, she never seems to be able to write. So when her grandmother offers her a few months away with all the time she could wish for, she’s sure to write the story she’s always dreamed of—or does her problem run deeper than she thinks?
Inspired by Great Expectations

 


A Fine Day Tomorrow ~ Amanda Tero
Essie March never planned to do much with her life, being the sickly one of the family. And just as she starts to pursue her dream of nursing, it seems that everything stands in her way to prevent it.
Inspired by Little Women

 

I had the opportunity to beta read A Fine Day Tomorrow, and it was such a lovely story!  It's definitely a timely read, since it deals with the Spanish Flu of 1918 -- and that's why I think it's such an important story to read right now.  It handles tough topics of loss and suffering very well, but it also portrays themes of light and hope -- and that's important now more than ever.  If the beta version of this story was fantastic, I know the final version in this collection will be even better!  


Releases on October 26!

Sarah Holman lives in Central Texas with her amazing family. When not working on her next novel, she can usually be found hanging out with her siblings, reading, or taking long walks. If there is anything adventuresome about her life, it’s because she serves a God with a destiny bigger than anything she could have imagined.

Rebekah Jones is first and foremost a follower of the Living God. She started writing as a little girl, seeking to glorify her King with her books and stories. Rebekah is an old soul in a young body (she’s not 12—honest!). While her exact age is classified, her interests are not. Among them are reading a variety of books, singing, playing and composing music, studying all manner of subjects, nannying an adventurous group of youngsters, and, of course, writing her books, poems, articles, and short stories. She writes a wide range of books from gentle children’s adventures to family sagas to murder mysteries.

J. Grace Pennington has been telling stories since she could talk and writing them down since age five. Now she lives in the great state of Texas, where she writes as much as adult life permits. When she’s not writing she enjoys reading good books, having adventures with her husband, and looking up at the stars.

Amanda Tero grew up attending a one room school with her eleven siblings—and loved it! She also fell in love with reading to the point her mom withheld her books to get her to do her chores. That love of reading turned into a love of writing YA fiction. Amanda is a music teacher by day and a literary guide by night, creating stories that whisk readers off to new eras and introduce them to heroic but flawed characters that live out their faith in astonishing ways.

  6. Favorite fall activity. Hmm, walking through the leaves, wearing sweaters. Having a bonfire. Reading good books. Eating soup. Seeing all the lovely colors. I could go on, but I'd better stop.
