Lily Of The Valley by Faith Blum ~ Blog Tour And Book Review

Monday, November 30, 2015

Today we have a blog tour and book review for Faith Blum's new book, Lily Of The Valley!

About the Book

Howdy, Teacher! You don’t know me, but my kids talk bout you a lot. I been lookin fer a wife and mother fer a few years and was wonderin iffen we cood meet and get to no each other a bit. I’ll come after skool to git yer answer. Grover Miller

Unruly schoolchildren, three suitors, and too many things to do. When Ruth Brookings rejects one of the suitors, he refuses to accept no for an answer.
To make matters worse, when she prays for guidance, she’s answered with a challenge instead: To encourage her friend to find a wife—whether he wants one or not.
Will she lose her friend just when she needs a friend the most? Will she be able to weather the storms she’s about to face?

My Review
This book is a little hard to write a review for. From the book description I really liked the plot, and I was excited to read Faith Blum's new book. The setting where the book took place was wonderfully done, and it felt very real. And I love the cast of characters in the book. It was a good clean story, and it brought up some interesting points.
But sadly there were a couple of things that kept me from enjoying the book as much as I had hoped. I really like books that have a good foundation of faith in them. But the way the faith way shown in this book felt a little to overpowering for me. There were many, many, places were I was either reading through full prayers or characters talking about what they learned, etc. Although as the book went on and got closer to the end it did get better.

 I received this book free from the author, Faith Blum, for my honest review. The opinions are my own.

About the Author

Faith Blum started writing at an early age. She started even before she could read! She even thought she could write better than Dr. Seuss. (The picture doesn't show it well, but there are scribblings on the page of Green Eggs and Ham). Now that she's grown up a little more, she knows she will probably never reach the success of Dr. Seuss, but that doesn't stop her from trying.

When she isn't writing, Faith enjoys doing many right-brained activities such as reading, crafting, writing, playing piano, and playing games with her family. One of her dreams is to visit Castle City, Montana someday to see the ghost town she chose for her characters to live in. She currently lives on a hobby farm with her family in Wisconsin.
