Happy Monday!

Whether it’s an upcoming release, new release, or even one that has been out for ages that you haven’t purchased a copy of yet, Must Get Monday highlights those books you just can’t wait to get your hands on to dive into.

This week I’m featuring Roots of Wood and Stone by Amanda Wen

Roots of Wood and Stone (Sedgwick County Chronicles)

Amazon | Goodreads

This is Amanda Wen’s debut novel and the premise is highly intriguing so I can’t wait to dig into this one soon. The official release date is February 2, but it’s currently available for pre-order 🙂

About the Book:

This historic home holds the keys to their destiny . . .and their hearts

Abandoned at birth, her family roots a mystery, historical museum curator Sloane Kelley has dedicated her life to making sure others know theirs. When a donor drops off a dusty old satchel, she doesn’t expect much from the common artifact . . .until she finds real treasure inside: a nineteenth-century diary.Now she’s on the hunt to find out more.

Garrett Anderson just wanted to clean out his grandmother’s historic but tumbledown farmhouse before selling it to fund her medical care. With her advancing Alzheimer’s, he can’t afford to be sentimental about the family home. But his carefully ordered plan runs up against two formidable obstacles: Sloane, who’s fallen in love with both the diaries and the house, and his own heart, which is irresistibly drawn to Sloane.

A century and a half earlier, motherless Annabelle Collins embarks with her aunt and uncle on the adventure of a lifetime: settling the prairies of Sedgwick County, Kansas. The diaries she left behind paint a portrait of life, loss, and love–and a God who faithfully carries her through it all. Paging through the diaries together takes Sloane and Garrett on a journey they never could have planned, which will change them in ways they never imagined.

This warm, beautifully written split-time novel will resonate with readers looking for stories that reveal the beauty of God’s plan for our lives, and how our actions ripple for generations.

What’s a book you can’t wait to get YOUR hands on?

  1. This sounds like a pretty amazing story! I’m quite a fan of dual-time novels. I’m looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of Tidewater Bride by Laura Frantz.
