Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for Grace & Lavender by Heather Norman Smith, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Grace & Lavender
Author: Heather Norman Smith
Publisher: Ambassador International
Genre: Contemporary Fiction
Release Date: March 1, 2019
Recently retired Colleen Hill is always busy, constantly on a quest to make life more interesting.
When the ladies’ group at her church partners with the local children’s home, Colleen jumps in as usual, volunteering to share her passion for cooking with a troubled teenager named Grace. But Colleen must balance the new project with her pursuit of becoming a contestant on a television game show, along with all the other ideas her brain continually spins out.
Colleen’s daughter Melody is quite different. She lives a calm, simple life and is content with who she is. That is, until an unexpected opportunity to work with Grace, too, pushes her to reevaluate life and dare to take on bigger dreams. The path starts with a newly-found interest in soap-making and leads her to responsibilities she didn’t even know she wanted, including helping Grace understand the meaning of her name.
Grace & Lavender is a book for all audiences—a heart-warming story that reminds us to seek God’s purpose for our lives.
My thoughts: This book is an excellent small town story with a beautiful message of hope and how God has a plan for your life, no matter your age or where you are at in life. I enjoyed each of the characters and how they brought this story to life. Colleen is outgoing and an all around fun character, with her passion for life. Melody is her very opposite daughter who is very relatable. I love how they reach out to and work with Grace, the young woman who ties this story together. This is an excellent story for all ages!
I received this book from Just Read tours. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
