BOOK BLURB: Four seasons. Four stories. Each one set in the enchanting world of the South. These are the kinds of stories your grandmother told you from a front porch swing.

Ice Melts in Spring by Linda W. Yezak When Kerry Graham's boss forces her to return to the Gulf of Mexico where her husband drowned years ago, she feels only spring's chill and not the warmth of the Texas sun. Can the joy of a reclusive author and the compassion of a shrimp-boat preacher thaw Kerry's frigid heart?

Lillie Beth in Summer by Eva Marie Everson With the untimely death of his wife, Dr. James Gillespie believes God has abandoned him. He also believes he's never met anyone like the young widow Lillie Beth, whose beloved Granny lies dying at home, and who sees a God who sweeps hope through a farmhouse window. Can a young woman whose husband died in Vietnam restore a faith that is all but dead.

Through an Autumn Window by Claire Fullerton Because her larger than life mother Daphne Goodwyn is dead, forty-year-old Cate returns to Memphis with one thought in mind: something always goes wrong at a Southern funeral. But surrounded by the well-mannered society that raised her, the nostalgic rites of a three-day, autumn mourning bring the unexpected gift of the end of sibling rivalry.

A Magnolia Blooms in Winter by Ane Mulligan With Broadway stardom within her reach, Morgan James returns home in winter to help an old friend. Maybe it s just nostalgia, but when she sees him again, an old flame rekindles. When she s called back to NYC to take the lead in a new musical, will fame be worth losing the man she loves?



1. What does the phrase, "be yourself" mean to you?

2. If you had to have a pet for a year what pet would you choose? why?

3. You were told you had to evacuate your house what three movies, three books, three albums would you take with you?

Be yourself to me means the true person that you are. It means sharing your deepest thoughts with another even though you don't normally show that side of yourself. 

I found anytime I ever tried to be someone other than myself, I ended up very unhappy. It's a hard thing for kids to learn, peer pressure being what it is. Everyone wants to belong. That challenged me to be someone who includes new people into my world.

I've got to say the older I get, the easier that becomes. Once I became fully convinced of who I am in Christ, I could let go of what I though others wanted me to be.

I'd agree with that Ane. Recognition of who I am in Christ has certainly freed me up from worrying about changing myself for others. I love being a daughter of the Almighty!

If I had to have a pet for only a year, I would take a baby elephant because they are so cute.  

LOL! That's a surprise answer and a fun one! Baby elephants are so cute! And fortunately, it 's only be for a year, because it wouldn't be a baby any longer.  Carrie, you're so much fun!

lol.  Well, I figured since it was *only*  a year, and since it is hypothetical, I could have a baby elephant since it would still be *little.*  I saw a video of baby elephants playing in one of those plastic pools.  It looked so fun!!  And I love elephants. 

I saw that same video. There is nothing cuter than baby animals! Elephants are so social, I think that's why they appeal so much. I always watch any show with them.

p.s. please enter me for boon and quilt

I'd probably go with a dog. Missing our dog this year. We had to send her to doggie heaven this year. I had to chuckle at Carrie Gould wanting a baby elephant for a year...they may be cute but they would eat a LOT and there would be a LOT to clean up after!

LOL And I agree with a dog. We have always had big dogs. They don't always live a long time. We seem to get a new one within a couple of months, sometimes a couple of weeks. 

I  would love to have a golden retriever as a pet for a year.  I would actually keep it for more than a year as I 

love Golden’s so much!  By the way I love your books.  Especially the Chapel Springs series.  Those books were so good.  I had many long hours of enjoyment!
