Cynthia Ruchti’s books were new to me when I started blogging, but oh my goodness was I missing out! The heart and the humor and the characters captivate me from word one – no matter which book I pick up. Yesterday on Straight Off the Page, my blogging cohort Melissa […]
“Ain’t is not a word.” “Put your ‘ing’ on the ends of words.” “Light is made up of a diphthong, not one long, flat vowel.” “Stand up straight.” “Put away your toothpick.” These are just some of the “bossy’ (per Reese) reminders that Dr. Adelina Roseland passes along to Reese […]

Delightful, warm, and charming, More Than a Promise is more than a love story. Or rather, it’s more than a story about two people falling in love. It’s a story of hope and faith, of humor and family, of blending lives, of second chances, and most of all it’s a story that points to the Author of all love stories and how He’s head over heels for us.
Y’all. Y’ALL. (Or youse, for Ruthy!) I am sitting here grinning from ear to ear because I GET TO CHAT WITH RUTH LOGAN HERNE on the blog today!! Ruthy is absolutely a delight to know via social media (I’m sure she’s even more delightful in person), and I really do […]
