Waiting on Wednesday - Home of Our Hearts + free ebook

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.
About 5 years ago, when I was eleven, I was gifted with a book for Christmas. The Christy Miller Collection, Volume 1, by Robin Jones Gunn. Maybe most kids would just put the book aside and keep on searching for their new bikes or electronics--but not me. I was a die-hard bookworm and got maybe a tad bit excited when someone gave me a book(I still do - hint, hint).

So I started reading it after the holidays and pretty soon I was hooked. I read the first volume, then the second, then the third. And it was months until my birthday before I received the final volume. And then maybe a year later, what do I find out? There's another volume of books about Christy called The College Years. I devoured those too.

I think I loved reading the Christy Miller series because the characters are so relatable, especially to young person like me. Today, I'm waiting on yet another addition to the life of Christy and her friends, called Home of our Hearts. It's the second in a series called The Married Years. (Don't you just love it when an author keeps adding on to the lives of her characters?)

Here's the description from Goodreads:

Christy and Todd are looking forward to being part of two important weddings. Christy would never think of missing Katie's big day, even though she's getting married in Kenya. Todd has been waiting his whole life to stand up as the best man for his dad's wedding. How will these two grand events fit into their lives and what will Todd say when Christy tells him the doctor's diagnosis the day before they leave for Africa? Will they finally settle in and start a home?  

So, that's my Waiting On Wednesday. Home of Our Hearts releases on November 25! Just a week from now!

Also, grab Road Trip to Redemption by Laurie Larsen for free on Nook and Kindle. Deal ends tomorrow!


  1. I loved the Christy Miller series! I've been wanting to read the first book in The Married Years, but haven't found the time yet.

    1. It was very good! But I'm not sure anything could beat The College Years.
