Conversations With a Moonflower Review and Giveaway...

What on earth had just happened to me? It was a plant, for heaven's sake! And with the exception of the bright yellow blooms, it looked more like a weed than anything you would purposely put in a garden. But this mysterious plant had captivated me, and I couldn't wait to tell the others what I had seen.

Chris's life is anything but peaceful when she returns to Carraugus County to clean out her deceased grandmother's home. But her life changes forever when an Amish woman invites her to watch a moonflower open.

Chris never would have believed that a simple plant could lead her on such a remarkable journey — a journey that would remind her of truths she had long ago forgotten. This debut by Chris Hall is guaranteed to uplift and inspire long after the story ends.  

I am so excited to share my review of this beautiful book with you! I related to the stories and felt lots of love while reading it. This powerful book is full of uplifting messages that really touched me! I loved the great reminders, like to pause from our busy lives and enjoy the peace and calm. Also that all living things need rest and should have days with only a few blossoms or even no blossoms from time to time

WOW-this book is for sure going on my bookshelf as a keeper! Thank you so much Chris for touching my life by sharing Conversations With a Moonflower with me! What a perfect gift this amazing book would make for Mother's Day or anytime of the year! 

Check out the Conversations With a Moonflower website here. You can watch a moonflower bloom here and see a little video clip about the book here. 

Now here's the exciting part...

I get to give 5 lucky winners a copy of this book!
