Happy Friday!

This week the book I’m featuring is Where the Blue Sky Begins by Katie Powner:


I have been really excited for this one to release and can’t wait to dig in. Admittedly I had to table this one for a little bit as I’m not sure I could handle it emotionally after just losing a close friend of mine. But I’m hoping I’ll be able to handle it soon. I’ve heard great things about it already and it sounds like one that would definitely hold my attention. What about you? Is it on your TBR?

"Katie Powner's engaging story will pull you in and leave you in wonder at that deep, blue sky."--CHRIS FABRY, author and radio host

Sometimes the hardest road of all is the road home.

When confident and handsome Eric Larson is sent to a rural Montana town to work in the local branch of his uncle's financial company, he's determined to exceed everyone's expectations, earn a promotion, and be back in Seattle by the end of summer. Yet nothing could prepare him for the lessons this small town has in store.

At forty-six years old, eccentric and outspoken Eunice Parker has come to accept her terminal illness and has given herself one final goal: seek forgiveness from everyone on her bucket list before her time runs out. But it will take more courage than she can muster on her own.

After an accident pushes Eric and Eunice together, the unlikely pair is forced to spend more time with each other than either would like, which challenges their deepest prejudices and beliefs. As summer draws to a close, neither Eric nor Eunice is where they thought they would be, but they both wrestle with the same important question: What matters most when the end is near?

Praise for Katie Powner

"Powner delivers life lessons that cross generations and will linger long after the last page is turned."--Library Journal starred review

"My favorite stories are ones about everyday, salt-of-the-earth people. When I open a novel by Katie Powner, I know that's what I'm going to experience."--Susie Finkbeiner, author of The Nature of Small Birds

  1. This is such a good book. I hope you enjoy it. 😀

    I’m currently finishing up The Lost Melody by Joanna Davidson Politano. It’s good!

    I hope you have a great weekend!
