Very interesting - I always find stories where someone comes out ahead of their struggles uplifting.

Your book sounds awesome. I love reading stories of people over coming the odds. Books like that give me such an uplife and leave me with a feeling of hope for better tomorrows.
I would love to read your book...it sounds very inspiring. Thank you...
Wow...sounds like a very moving and touching story. A few tears too I bet!!
ACK! I left off the question at the end of my blog. Here it is :)
Denise, my heart goes out to you. Have you looked into the online support
Betty, thank you! Sometimes if the people I'm reading about have problems
Your newest books sounds wonderful - and I'd love to win a copy to read. However, win or lose, I'll get the book to read because I always love your stories. Best of luck with it. N
Sounds really good, would love to win a copy.
Sounds wonderful - I've always been on the side of the "underdog" so to speak. It's heartwarming when someone overcomes difficulties and become stronger because of it.
I think our hearts yearn for that rainbow after the storm - for joy for those who have suffered, healing after pain. Maybe we call it 'hope' so as not to give up - a better day in the future if today is not so good.
It is sometimes difficult to read about a characters
This sounds like a good book, I'd love to win it.
Thank you Nancy! I appreciate your kind words :)
Karen, it's hard not to cheer for an underdog. Do you think it's because we all
This month's ALL YOU magazine had three articles of women who had serious illness. The articles were all uplifting because they talked about how they cope and overcome there illness in there day to day life. I like the fact that you do that in your books also.
Beth, you're so right! It's all about hope, isn't it? I've had readers tell me the
Diane, great point! I think there's definite truth to that. You read about
Kathleen, I'll definitely have to check that out. Thanks for letting me know!
I enjoy the articles as I too have a handicapped daughter and my life has
Wow...your books sound great. We all will have struggles. That is part of life and learning. Though when we are going through it, it doesn't sound that logical!
When I read about people that have survived difficult challenges my heart goes out to them. In the first place to have those challenges changes a persons outlook on life, second to survive them makes you look at life in awe and appreciate it all the more. My daughter went through those challenges and gave them a fight that was unbelievable. She taught many people that life was worth living. For four years (they told us six months) she challenged that challenge and helped other people with the same. A few years later my husband went through the same and wasn't so lucky to have as long. When I see or hear someone survive a challenge of such, I get Happy Tears and I know they will appreciate life to the fullest. Any challenge people survive should be celebrated and not taken lightly. Learn from it and Live better or the best you can because you DID survive and many people are having those Happy Tears for You. Yes I get uplifted to hear of survival from any challenges. My heart goes out to all people with challenges, there are too many to list but know there are people cheering for you.
I think most of the characters of books tht i've read have suffered something horrible. In historical or contemporary romances, even in paranormal genre i found it. I think thts interesting. Cause readers also can learn about physicology here. N i like it!
I work with children who have disabilities. I see "little miracles" all the time! Children who have daily challenges will find their way into your heart!
I find it interesting to read about people who have been thru difficult times because when I hit 'bumps in the road' I remember what I've read and life is not always easy. And when the road is not 'bumpy' I know how fortunate I am my family are.
It is a rare person who hasn't had to cope with difficulties of one kind or another.
I enjoy reading a book that I can relate to! I have never
Oh your book sounds wonderful... I want to see people overcome whatever problems or issues they have... I want them to have their HEA.
I love stories about hope and second chances. Thanks for the opportunity to enter giveaway.
This sounds like a very uplifting story of hope and getting a new out look on life its self. Would love to read this book.
Overcoming obstacles always makes a person interesting.
sounds like a great book. thanks for the draw:)
I like the concept and the character development. It sounds really great
sounds like my type of book
Thank you for your post and question, RaeAnne.
Hi RaeAnne, I just picked up A Cold Creek Reunion yesterday and I am looking forward to it. It will be my first book by you :)
Reading about people surviving difficult challenges or tragedy is inspiring to me and uplifting, with what they've been dealt with. This is a part of life facing and struggling and dealing with hardships, and I think everyone encounters this more than once in their lifetimes, themselves or in their family. Their courage to get through it makes them a stronger person, overcoming obtacles and finding new outlets for happiness. This book sounds good, and I'm sure many will enjoy it, as they can relate in some way with the story. I want to read BLACKBERRY SUMMER-Book 1 and would love to win WOODROSE MOUNTAIN-Book 2. Thanks for the giveaway and much success with your new book!
I like to read about people and their challenges--as long as I'm not going through the same ones at the time.
I believe that the deeper the tragedy, the higher the rebound.
Characters that have struggled or have issues, are deeper and I care more about
Sounds like an amazing read.I would love to win this and I
Considering the fact that I've gone through bad times, losing my house and belongings after my Husband lost his job, and am in the progress of getting on my feet again, I'm anxious to read your latest book. It's always good to read another person's angle on how they deal with adversity. Even though our problems aren't the same, the hurt still remains. A reading diversion is always welcome. The cover to your book is beautiful as well.
It can go either way. Sometimes when I am hurting, I don't want to read about others. And sometimes I will. And be very weepy.
It sounds like what's in the news nowadays. I like stories where there's conflict and bouncing back to a new kind of daily living. Looks to be a good read with a big hook at the beginning that gets the reader's attention.
I am loving all your comments! Thank you all so much :)
It's not so much the fact that your characters have suffered something horrible. It's the fact that they recovered from it. That's the challenge. It then becomes a story of healing and renewal and not destruction.
thank you Raeanne i have looked and joined network groups on the internet . there isnt alot around our area. ive had to fight for everything for my daughter Leanna. there isnt much help for speach so i travel about 60 miles both ways each time a couple days aweek for OT,PT, AND SPEECH she is nonverbal.
Your book sounds wonderful,would love to win it. Thanks for a chance to read it.
I think it's important for us to have books that don't always have a wonderful, happy story. We need those too, but our lives aren't always happy and we need to know that people can overcome bad obstacles of any kind. Thanks for writing such books. I too would love to read your book. If I don't win one I'll try to find one at the library. All the best to you and grace and love for the bad times.
This books really good and I know what you mean about finding characters who have had to overcome difficulties and obstacles to be stronger, interesting, and more complex than other characters sometimes are.
I've never read this author, but reading what this book is about, it's exactly the type of story I like to read!
Thanks for giving us a chance to win. It sounds like a tender, loving story.
i would love to win a copy. thank-you for the opportunity!!!
Sounds interesting, although I think I prefer happy books or at least ones with a happy ending.
I always find those types of stories so inspiring, and they give the story more depth. Without it, the people don't seem real. Everyone has trials and tragedies in their lives, so why shouldn't a character in a book? Keep up the great work! And thank you for the inspiration!
This book sounds very good...not every book has to have an all-over happy story. Characters experiencing something traumatic and going through it with them, gives insight to how they deal with their problems for their road to recovery, and may have a HEA ending. Would enjoy winning a copy of this one just to find out! Thank-You for the chance!!!
I would love to meet the folks of Hope's Crossing. Thank you for sharing with us today and for the awesome giveaway opportunity.
WOODROSE MOUNTAIN looks like a wonderful read. I have added it to my wish list.
I love reading about people over coming obstacles or bad events that happened to them, it gives me hope ♥

I really enjoy these small town character driven series - I
I appreciate the underdog and coming up in a positive way despite what life has thrown at you!
Sounds like the book will be a winner. I always like stories that have a problem that needs to be solved. That's what is so interesting to me! Although, there are books that make you cry for a character. I love getting into books to escape sometimes.
