As a difficult pregnancy continues, I decided to cut back on my blogging commitments and not request any more books to review. That is, until I came across Roots & Sky, by Christie Purifoy. I love a good memoir and couldn't say no after reading the description of Roots & Sky. It sure did not disappoint!
Roots & Sky recounts Purifoy's first year living in an old Pennsylvania farmhouse. With beautifully descriptive language, she takes the reader through the birth of her fourth child just weeks after moving, into a winter of both the outside world and the soul, to the beautiful explosion of life in the spring, and finally into the warm, welcome harvest of summer.
With each observation of the seasons, Purifoy weaves in scripture and a deepening knowledge of God. Her stories invite the reader to linger in the beauty of God's world. I read the book in two long sittings-a rare luxury in these busy days!
If you enjoy memoirs, Roots & Sky will be a joy to read. Enter below to win a copy!
