Monday Musings–Book review of Head in the Clouds by Karen Witemeyer
I thought I would start our week off with a book review of a wonderful book I just finished last night. I read Karen’s debut novel, A Tailor-Maid Bride and reviewed it last year. Although some sophomore novels don’t live up to the promise of the first book, I need to tell you that Karen’s second book is superb! I read this book in two days which is a rarity for me nowdays!
If you like Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters, you will love Head in the Clouds. Take a governess, a small child and an English nobelman, then transport them to a sheep ranch in Texas and you have a rollicking good story with more than enough love to go around.
There is also a villian and some tense scenes which is why you have to read it so quickly to make sure everyone survives. So hurry on out and buy or order this book. You might have your head in the clouds for days afterward!
This book was sent to me by the publisher, Bethany House, for review purposes, but that did not affect my review in any way. Thanks, Bethany and Karen for a great read!
It’s a learning journey and a lifelong learning journey at that. Blessings,
I actually typed a long comment a couple of days ago on your post about what it means to be educated, then blogger ate it. Grrr! I’ll try again. This post was very affirming (as was the other). I’ve been continuing my self-directed education for many years, even though I dropped out of college to raise a family. (I think I should get a diploma just for having homeschooled my 5 kids through h.s. to semi-civilized adulthood. Lol!)
I’m also inspired by your courageous effort to launch into freelance editing. I’ve been giving that idea some thought.
So may God bless as you seek to figure out where He’s leading you in your endeavors!
