“I’m reading the Horse Dreams Trilogy and felt the need to explain to my son why I’m laughing out loud so much. He understood when I told him that it was a book by the author of the Lewis and Clark Squad series. Bly books are a favorite at our house.” — Sandy Sieber
Excerpt from contemporary western romance Memories of a Dirt Road Road Town:
The sigh was slow, deliberate … like a ship departing for a long voyage and none of the crew quite ready to say good-bye. “Dear, sweet Lily, your summer is planned. Six weeks of summer school and a month with the grandchildren in Wisconsin. I’m not sure when I will have grandchildresn, nor if my daughter will even tell me. So, I would get to sit at home all summer and feel sorry for myself. I have felt sorry for myself for over ten years. I can’t stand that any more.”
“Ten years?” Lily questioned.
“That wasn’t the only time Spencer did this.”
“You never told me that before.”
“I never told anyone. Not mother. And certainly not Delaney. But like an old wool coat, lies wear thin over the years.”
Fan Review of Memories of a Dirt Road Town:
“I loved it! So well written! I bought the book because the story summary about a teacher from Indiana caught my attention; that’s my background. I was apprehensive when “Dev” traveled west by herself, but once I got over that I was “there,” in the story with her. The cowboys were cool; loved “Lily” and “Casey.” Can’t wait to get “The Mustang Breaker.” — Teresa C.
A gal like Develyn would read a nonfiction book like The Heart of a Runaway/Hope & Understanding for the Woman Who Longs To Escape: http://www.blybooks.com/product_category/inspirational-family-life/page/2/
