KIM VOGEL SAWYER
It is my good pleasure to be hosting Kim Vogel Sawyer on the scavenger hunt. She’s the author of many “gentle stories of hope,” and has made it a mission to write books that encourage and edify believers.
Here’s what her new book, SONG OF MY HEART, is about: To naïve and determined Sadie Wagner, Goldtree, Kansas, and its opera house offer fascinating experiences and colorful characters—the likes of which she never saw in the Indiana mining town where she was raised. Can she manage to keep herself out of trouble as she pursues her dreams?
And here’s an EXCLUSIVE from Kim:
SONG OF MY HEART was birthed in the basement of an antique store in Paxico, Kansas. I’ve shared about the stage beneath the store, which was originally a mercantile in the late 1800s/early 1900s, and how wondering what kind of performances took place down there led to creating the underground opera house and its illegal dealings. While browsing the store, I came across a lovely little teacup from England. The blue bands captured my attention–such a delicate blue! The color of a robin’s egg or of the Kansas sky on a clear, sunny afternoon. I brought it home, and as the story emerged, the blue worked its way into the story…in a little gift from Sid to Sadie, in the way Thad described the color of Sadie’s eyes, in the wildflowers growing outside of town.
The teacup has given me pleasure, but it served its purpose, so now its ready to bless someone else with its graceful presence. If you’d like to win it, just comment on this post and Yvonne will pick a winner out of a hat. Good luck, and I trust you’ll enjoy this beautiful little cup as much as I have! –Kim Vogel Sawyer
That’s sweet of her, isn’t it? A teacup given between friends is the best kind of gift. You can find more about Kim at her site, and you can purchase SONG OF HER HEART at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, CBD, or your local bookstore.
