ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
I thoroughly enjoyed reading "Hearts on a Lonely Mountain". My heart hurt for all that Ivory faced as she works to acclimate to mountain life. A place where changes are hard to make and accepting outsiders is almost a crime. Faced with accusations no lady should have to concern herself with. But no one prepared her for a little boy who looked beyond old mountain lore and superstitions. No one certainly did not prepare her for the tike's uncle. Loneliness sets as she is not permitted to do the job of being a traveling librarian, she comes to depend more on Ben and his nephew. A delightful read and a humbling lesson all shaken together. As I read this story, God reminded me how easily it is to jump to conclusions about others and I find myself judging them for no apparent reason. I'm learning to just love others because judgement belongs to the Lord. I also loved the sweet little lady (keep your eyes open for her) that serves the Lord in her actions and not just her words. You'll love it!
I received a complimentary copy of this book and all opinions are my own.
