Good morning! What are the chances! We have good book suggestions today from two sources and – wouldn’t you know – they are the same. It is usual for them to mention the same book, just not on the same day.
I’ve read the long sample and now I have to read the rest. A nice problem to have in my estimation.
Come Next Winter: An Inspirational Romance (Seasons of Change Book 1)
Can love triumph over tragedy and bring joy amid winter?
When unexpected tragedy hits her family, Carol Mason struggles to forge a new life for herself and her sons. Though Vermont has been their home for twenty years, betrayal and misunderstanding force Carol to leave the mountains she loves and return to her hometown of Apache Pointe, Arizona. There she is welcomed by scorching heat, lizards, scorpions, and (gulp) Aunt Penny. Carol finds a sympathetic friend in her cousin Millie as she does her best to put the pieces of her shattered life back together. But her prayers for guidance and a decent place to live away from Aunt Penny’s disapproving eye go unanswered. Has God turned a deaf ear to her just when she needs Him the most?
The answer might be found in the handsome pastor of her family’s church. Frank is everything she would look for in a spouse. If she were looking. Which she is not. Especially when she discovers that Cousin Millie has set her hopes on becoming the pastor’s next wife. Aunt Penny’s outrageous attempts to ensure that Millie wins Frank’s heart bring Carol’s past crashing into her present, and might destroy any chance she has at a happy future.
I think the main draw of this book is that it is well written. I could be wrong but I’m thinking that any story could be interesting if it is well written.
Hmmm. This bears thinking about. This is a new thought, one I haven’t considered from all angles. It sounds like it could be true.
You know the old line, he could sell _____ to a ______. Fill in the blanks with your favorite example of impossible sells. He’s basically selling a story, a well told, convincing story. If such a thing is possible then well written should equal awesome no matter what the story line.
This would be an interesting challenge. Take a boring concept and write a story that people want to read. Prove the point if it can be done.
Maybe well written is relative. It is possible there are works that could be considered well written while they are totally boring.
But then boring could also be considered relative. There is no accounting for taste. What is fascinating to one can be deadly boring to another. How often do you want to read a 1000 page tome on the characteristics of some totally obscure microscopic topic? A few of you will say pretty often.
Maybe it’s fair to say that well written can make any subject/idea/story fascinating to someone somewhere.
I’m needing to camp on this thought for a bit.
I’ll be back with more bargains if I see any pop up later.
