The novella Appalachian Serenade by Sarah Loudin Thomas was a delight to read! Thomas’s writing seemed beautiful and yet so simple in the way that it told the story of two people who thought their chance for love had already passed them by.
The characters Delilah and Robert were so believable and so everyone. From the beginning, Thomas effortlessly swept me into Delilah’s life and her troubles. And Robert. What was there not to like about Robert who took a personal interest in everyone he interacted with. Susanne threw in an unexpected twist but that’s for you to find out when you read it.
Not only did I enjoy the plot, but Thomas’s writing was as much a pleasure to read. From the title, to her characters, to the profound and heartfelt wisdom she shares along the way, Thomas’s writing refreshed me as her characters struggled to find peace with their deepest desires.
I look forward to reading Thomas’s debut novel Miracle in a Dry Season which will be released in August 2014 by Bethany House. Bethany House sent me a complimentary eBook of Appalachian Serenade by Sarah Loudin Thomas to review.
