In Cottonwood Whispers, the sequel to Fireflies in December, readers will find a story of quick assumptions and false accusations; a story of how easily people can believe something without exploring justification. And a story of true sacrificial love and pure faith in God’s sovereignty.
Of course, the novel will also continue the story of Jessilyn and Luke…!
I find it always hard to share my thoughts on books I fall in love with like this one. I will say, I’ve found a new favorite author in Jennifer Erin Valent and will be purchasing her other book Fireflies in December very soon!
I could not put this book down from the moment I opened it’s pages and dove into the first chapter. Maybe one of the reasons that I like this book because I appreciate the fine southern writing style since I’m from Georgia.
I didn’t realize till browsing Amazon that this book is sequel to Fireflies in December, meaning this book does an excellent job of standing on it’s own.
Not many books have the ability to make me cry, I don’t want to say I am so heartless but a lot of the times I feel in most books, the authors don’t develop their characters enough to bring people to the point of really knowing and feeling for them.
I was quite sad when I finished reading this book because I didn’t want it to end. I truly enjoyed being whisked away to the southern atmosphere which was described ever so accurately. I felt I made friends with characters of this story as they matured in their own personal walks in life.
As a christian myself, I appreciate the faith in God mentioned through the characters that are deep in His word to the characters just learning to trust and follow God. 5 Stars!
I’ll never forget my daughters first steps when she was about eight months old! My husband and I were in the living room playing our Wii System and we decided to hold out one of the remotes to see if our daughter would step away from the couch. To our surprise she took not just 2 or 3 but six steps forward to reach the remote! We were so incredibly happy to see out daughter take her first steps together! A few days later, I took the video below.
One thing to keep in mind when your baby is learning to walk is putting them in the right pair of shoes. The right shoes will help your baby develop properly during this crucial learning to walk to walking stage.
Then the question is asked, “What company can I trust in finding the right pair of shoes?”… Why not trust a brand like Stride Rite? For over 85 years, this company has designed and engineered footwear specifically to meet the needs of growing children from birth to age 10!
I’m excited to tell you that Stride Rite has a new line out that’s called SRT shoes!
About The Shoes: The SRT shoes utilize Sensory Response Technology to help babies develop a healthy gait during the critical learning-to-walk stage. The only thing more impressive than the shoes themselves is the technology behind them. The sole of the soft and flexible SRT shoe contains little sensory pods that help a baby to know if they are stepping properly, allowing sensitivity to different surface types and terrains. Available in toddler sizes 3 to 8 (including medium and wide), the insole is removable and features the Check Fit system. Place your baby’s foot on the soft insole, compare baby’s toes to the line, and know with confidence when it’s time for a larger size!
I think the shoes are incredibly cute and I just love the names they have like Liam, Oscar Adelina and Carly! I encourage to visit Stride Rites Facebook page to see what all the buzz is about and become a fan like me!
