Hymns in the Hills | Book Spotlight

One of my author friends, Rebekah, is releasing a new book! Isn't the cover lovely? I haven't read it, but I know Rebekah and that her work is something you can trust to have solid, clean content, suitable for the entire family.

     "God can’t lie.”
     “How da ya know that?”
     “Because God is truth. He can’t do wrong, and when He tells us in the Bible that something is so, then we know it is so. And He said the Jesus loves us.”
     “Where’d He say that? I ain’t never heard it.”
     Carefully Belle opened her small Bible and turned a few pages. “Right here,” she pointed to the printed words. “I’ll read it to you. ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life.’ And in another verse,” she turned the pages rapidly, “it says, ‘God loved us and sent His Son.’ So, you see it says that Jesus loves us, just like the song says.”
     “No, it ain’t neither,” Kade declared, folding his arms.

About the Book
“Could you not teach them what you do know?”

Separated from her parents and sent to live with unknown relatives for the summer, Belle Standish clings hard to the promises found in her dear Bible and her beloved hymns. As she grows to love her newly discovered family, she finds much work to be done for her Lord in this neglected field.

But when danger threatens those she loves, Belle's faith and courage are tested in ways she never imagined. Will God's promises hold true even in the midst of the storm? And what can she possibly accomplish with just her one little light?


Rebekah is giving away an eBook of "Hymns in the Hills." To enter, you must use a secret word from each blogger. :) My word is "HE."

If you get a chance to read it, do! You would enjoy it =)

Here's my review that should be going live on Amazon eventually, in case anyone needs any encouragement to read it =D

This is my absolute favorite of all the books I have read by this author. Belle's simple trust in her Savior and her desire to share His love with her relatives were encouraging to me in my walk with the Lord. All the individuals in this story (they felt so natural it seems odd to call them characters) were easy enough to tell apart, despite there being so many children in one family. The dialect that the hill people talk in really draws the reader into the feeling of the area, and the whole story is well grounded in the setting.

As always, this was a clean, well-written story with plenty of spiritual encouragement woven into the fabric of the story. Be sure to have a way to look up hymns handy--this book has a treasure trove of them, some well known, and some that should be well known.

Are you ready to meet Zeke and Ez, Jess, Riss, Ali, Kade, Rome, Tabby, Sade, Si, Mattie, and Ben? Join Belle as she meets all these cousins and more!

I requested a review copy of this story, because I enjoyed an advance copy so much I wanted to share. All the thoughts here are my own. =)
