I am happy to celebrate with all of you the release of Sunflower Serenade, the latest release in Tricia Goyer's wildly popular Home to Heather Creek series.
From the heart of the author:
Dear Reader, Here in Montana we have a yearly event that everyone loves to attend. Folks make sure they're back from vacation for it. Every summer people clear off their calendars, dig out their checkbooks, put on their best pants and head to the county fair.
I was so excited to be able to bring this rural tradition to life in the pages of Sunflower Serenade. While this book is a work of fiction, parts of the story are based on my own family's experiences, such as pig wrestling rodeo going, and attending summer concerts by well-known country music stars.
My all time favorite memory of the fair has to be taking my two-year-old son to see the sheep exhibits. I'll never forget his wide eyed gaze as the sheep's nose nearly touched his. Now that Nathan is fifteen, that moment is a precious memory, one I treasure and replay in my mind every time the fair rolls around.
Enjoy your trip to the county fair through the pages of Sunflower Serenade. See you there!
