It’s a brand new year, readers! And with it, I’m delighted to introduce you to four brand new books. (If you have observant family members, you may have received a bookstore gift card for Christmas like I did…so here are some great suggestions for how to use it.) Click on each cover to start reading an excerpt.
I hope the new year so far has been full of hope and excitement for what’s to come!
Out of the Ashes by Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse
