Welcome to Memorable Monday! The purpose of Memorable Monday is to showcase an influential book read in the past that still sticks with you today. This fun Monday morning post is hosted by the lovely Becca at The Becca Files.
This week, I am featuring:
by: Courtney Walsh
I adore Courtney Walsh’s novels. They are ALL so good. She has such a wonderful, God-given talent for creating highly engaging plot lines, and endearing and realistic characters. I make sure to pre-order her books as soon as they become available for pre-order because I don’t ever want to miss a story!
Hometown Girl is just wonderful. I highly recommend this book if you have not read it yet. What I love so much about Walsh’s novels is how realistic her characters are. The main character in Hometown Girl, Beth, is a perfectionist. I absolutely, completely, 100% relate to being a perfectionist. It is SO exhausting. Thank God for my husband and daughter who have both taught me to calm down a bit. And, this novel has Drew Barlow. Let me tell you, reading this book just for Drew is well worth it! He is an excellent hero!!!
I could gush about this book for days — I mean, look at that cute cover!!! We could spend an hour talking about how adorable it is. LOL! Instead of gushing though, I’ll stop and say, “Go get this book! You will love it.”
About the Book
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Courtney Walsh returns with a hopeful and emotional new book about seizing second chances, finding yourself, and forging your own path.
Beth Whitaker isn’t supposed to be a small-town girl. She’s always dreamed of leaving Willow Grove, Illinois, for the big city, but she feels trapped, struggling to make up for a mistake that’s haunted her for years. Just when Beth is finally ready to break free, her sister impulsively buys a beloved but run-down farm on the outskirts of town, and she begs Beth to help with the restoration. Reluctantly, Beth agrees to help—and puts her own dreams on hold once again.
Drew Barlow hasn’t been back to Fairwind Farm since he was a boy, and he’s spent all these years trying to outrun the pain of a past he thought he buried long ago. When he learns that the owner has passed away, his heart knows it’s finally time to do the right thing. Returning to Willow Grove, Drew revisits the old farm, where he attempts to piece together his memories and the puzzle of the crime he witnessed so long ago.
Both on a journey to find peace, Beth and Drew are surprised when they begin to experience a restoration of their own. But when long-buried secrets break through the soil and the truth unfurls, will it threaten their budding relationship—and the very future of the farm?
