Happy Cyber Monday! In honor of the biggest internet shopping day of the year, or at least one of them, Faith Blum decided to do a blog tour release of her newest novel, Lily of the Valley. There are two giveaway opportunities and lots of fun interviews and excerpts.
About the Book
Howdy, Teacher! You don’t know me, but my kids talk bout you a lot. I been lookin fer a wife and mother fer a few years and was wonderin iffen we cood meet and get to no each other a bit. I’ll come after skool to git yer answer. Grover Miller
Unruly schoolchildren, three suitors, and too many things to do. When Ruth Brookings rejects one of the suitors, he refuses to accept no for an answer.
To make matters worse, when she prays for guidance, she’s answered with a challenge instead: To encourage her friend to find a wife—whether he wants one or not.
Will she lose her friend just when she needs a friend the most? Will she be able to weather the storms she’s about to face?

About the Author
Faith Blum started writing at an early age. She started even before she could read! She even thought she could write better than Dr. Seuss. (The picture doesn’t show it well, but there are scribblings on the page of Green Eggs and Ham). Now that she’s grown up a little more, she knows she will probably never reach the success of Dr. Seuss, but that doesn’t stop her from trying.
When she isn’t writing, Faith enjoys doing many right-brained activities such as reading, crafting, writing, playing piano, and playing games with her family. One of her dreams is to visit Castle City, Montana someday to see the ghost town she chose for her characters to live in. She currently lives on a hobby farm with her family in Wisconsin.
Today is the last day to get Be Thou My Vision (Hymns of the West #2) free! Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NF3QV52

And I’m pleased to share this EXCERPT with you fantastic readers! Enjoy!!
A group of horses bearing riders came into view. Annabelle grabbed Ruth’s arm. “Here he comes! And we’re all alone.”
Ruth shook her head and shrugged Annabelle’s hand off her arm. “You’ll be fine. Remember what we learned this week in Bible study?”
Annabelle took a deep breath and let it out. “‘Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.’ Philippians 4:6-7.”
“Exactly!” Ruth exclaimed. “I’m proud of you for getting that memorized. Now you just have to put it into practice.”
Annabelle groaned. “I know. That’s where I have the most trouble—remembering the things I learn.”
“What’s two plus two?” Ruth asked.
“Four,” Annabelle responded, her face scrunched up in confusion.
“Who was the fourth president?”
“James Madison. What are you doing, Ruth?”
“What do they call the study of rocks?”
“Geology,” Annabelle responded. “What purpose does this quiz serve?”
Ruth smiled. “One more question. What is Genesis 1:1?”
“‘In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.’”
Ruth nodded. “Repetition is the key. You remember things better than you think, you just need to keep repeating them until it becomes natural.”
