Roots and Sky
Roots & Sky
A Journey Home in Four Seasons
Christie and her little family moved into Maplehurst when she was very pregnant with her fourth child. She wanted this to be a haven, a sanctuary for their whole family. This was to be home, the end of the journey for them. Christie tells the story of how the family made Maplehurst their home through the first four seasons in the old Victorian house.
I absolutely loved the author's lyrical writing style. It flowed so smoothly that I felt like I was being carried along as the author weaves a spell over the reader. The story resonated with me, despite our differences. The author touches on relationships, family, nature, and home. She weaves elements of her faith throughout the book, but it never comes across as preachy. I finished the book feeling refreshed, inspired, and peaceful. Loved this book and will definitely be checking out other books by this author.
I received this book free of charge from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.
