ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Cynthia spends her days diving into words, worship, and wonder and celebrating 40 years of marriage, three grown children, and five outrageously adorable grandchildren. One of her greatest joys is helping other writers grow in their craft. To that end, she served as the assistant director and a faculty member of the Quad Cities Christian Writers Conference, has served as worship and devotions staff for the Write-to-Publish conference, and teaches at other conferences as opportunities arise. She speaks to women’s groups, at mother-daughter banquets, and for women’s refresher days and retreats. It is her delight to serve on her church’s worship team. Rather than “busy,” she likes the term “active.”
For 33 years, Cynthia wrote and produced the radio broadcast The Heartbeat of the Home. The scripted radio drama/devotional broadcast aired on as many as 50 radio stations and two cable/digital television stations over the years. Cynthia was the editor of the ministry’s Backyard Friends magazine, a twenty-page, twice annual publication that reached 5,000 homes, churches, and parachurch outreaches.
ABOUT THE BOOK
If you would like to read the first chapter of When The Morning Glory Blooms, go HERE.
Wow, I loved this book! Not only does it have a beautiful cover, it has a great storyline and the three main characters are wonderful. In 1890 Anna begins a home for unwed mothers. In 1951 Ivy is pregnant by her boyfriend who is fighting in the Korean War and has no idea she's expecting. Can you imagine the disgrace these women experienced? Finally there's Becky, she's a grandma that is trying to help her teenage daughter be more responsible in caring for her baby. You can't help but love each one of these women as you get to know them.
The author takes these three women's lives and binds them together at the end even though they are from different areas in time. She has written a story that will bring tears to your eyes throughout the book. This one gets 5 stars from me!
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
