Welcome to the Sweet September Blog Tour!!!
Tricia Goyer has written her first contemporary novel, and it’s a wonderful read! As you know I’ve blogged here before about her awesome books, both her non-fiction Generation NeXt titles, My Life Unscripted, and her historical fiction Spanish Civil War novels, but I’ve always wondered what a contemporary setting would read like when written up by this fantastic author. I sure wasn’t disappointed. Sweet September is a real-to-life look at the adventures and challenges of a multi-generational farm family, and from the outset, it feels authentically Goyer-esque!
Sweet September is the second in the Home to Heather Creek series put out by Guideposts. Book one is Before the Dawn by Carolyne Aarsen. Both are great reads, but just so you know, Sweet September stands alone just fine!
About Tricia’s latest book:
Harvest time at Heather Creek Farm is an exciting time, but the kids don’t seem to be getting into the spirit. One day while he’s wandering through the fields, Christopher stumbles across an old piece of metal buried in the ground. He doesn’t know what it is, but he hides it in the shed.
That night, the garden by the house is uprooted. Who could have done such a thing? Charlotte is determined to find out, but is distracted when she gets news that Sam is failing school. The sullen teen is indifferent and won’t study. He starts spending a lot of time with Pete. Though she loves her son dearly, Pete never finished high school, and Charlotte is afraid he’ll encourage Sam to do the same. How can she help him get back on track?
A gripping story that examines the Stevenson family’s history as well as its shaky future, Sweet September will bring you deeper into the loving community of Bedford and the deep ties of love that bind this broken family together. As they forge new connections, you’ll be entertained, inspired, and reminded that God’s grace can make all things new.
