And Sweet September are the first two books in a new series by Guideposts called Home to Heather Creek. In Before the Dawn we meet Charlotte Stevenson; her daughter Denise ran away from home at eighteen and is the mom to three children. After she dies in an automobile accident, Charlotte brings the teen age children home to their farm in Nebraska. The kids are virtually strangers to Charlotte and her husband Bob and are not thrilled to leave behind their life in California for a very different life on the farm. Sweet September picks up the story as harvest is beginning. The kids and grandparents are becoming a bit more comfortable with each other but are still learning to deal with their grief and how to become a family while trusting in God to help them through.
Lauren was sweet enough to pass these along to me a few months ago to read and my sister Stacy read them when I was through. I’d like to pass along both of these books so if you’re interested in them let me know in the comments. I’ll leave this up and open all week.

    They were good books, a lot like the Grace Chapel Inn books, which are also published by Guideposts. Sweet, simple books with really good points of faith and forgiveness. Thanks for letting me borrow them before you pass them along to another lucky reader 🙂

    How nice of you to pass them on! I guess they are travelling the country. 🙂

    Just in case you do make that hummus I made…I made some this weekend and discovered that it’s even better if you process for a lot longer than you think you need to. It fluffs it up. AND using chicken broth is even better than water…gives a little flavor and doesn’t thin it out as much. I’ve been meaning to get some lemon to add to this but keep forgetting…that’s usually in hummus. But, no, you do not HAVE to have tahini!
