And here’s another fun interview with one of my readers. Enjoy!
Name: Trisha Robertson
Where are you joining us from? I’m joining you today from Michigan.
Let’s have a few “get to know you” questions first!
How many books do you read on average a week? I typically read 2-3 books in a week.
Favorite genre? My favorite genre to read is Christian Historical Romance.
Favorite childhood book? I loved reading the books in the Mandi series.
Favorite leading female of all time? That’s a difficult question… Because they are all fabulous for different reasons! I think I’d have to say, whichever book I’m reading at the time!
Favorite leading male? I’m going to go with Noble Rynallt from Laura Frantz’s The Lacemaker.
What book would you love to spend a day inside of? Another difficult question, because there are so many great places to visit. I’d love to visit the town of Maple Run from Toni Shiloh’s books!
Who are three of your favorite authors? Ok, seriously you are killing me with these questions. LOL! Have mercy, only 3? I’ll list some of my early favorites: Liz Curtis Higgs, Lori Wick, and Janette Oke.
How do you pick what to read next? Usually I choose which ever book is next in my review schedule by release date. If I don’t have a pressing one, then I may pick one that’s been in my #TBR or sometimes I find a book at the library that catches my eye. It’s fairly random.
Name two books on your keeper shelf: All of my Liz Curtis Higgs books!!
Let’s chat about The Hope of Azure Springs!
What drew you to the book? I was drawn in first of all by the synopsis. The story of a young woman who rode the Orphan Train, and how her story turned out. The lovely cover, also drew my attention.
Without giving too much away, what scene is most memorable? I really enjoyed the scenes when Em climbs trees. The scenes with the twins are pretty special as well.
What emotions did you feel while reading? Oh, so many emotions! I laughed, I cried, I held my breath in suspense, while turning pages to see what would happen.
Who was your favorite character? I really liked Em. She has an unassuming, inward beauty that shines through everything she does.
Do you have a favorite quote from the book? “Being married to a good man, toiling with him day in and day out. Laughing together about things no one else is part of. All of it, the good and the bad, is where you find real joy.”
What surprised you about this read? How a character that at first I didn’t like, I came to understand and feel sorry for. (I’d name the character, but I don’t want to give anything away)
Would you read future books by this author? Absolutely, yes! Without a doubt!
Anything else you’d like to share about your reading experience? There are many layers to this story to enjoy. Dynamic characters, lots of emotion, threads of faith, and even a touch of mystery. There is just so much to love about this story!
Thank you, Rachel for inviting me to participate in this fun interview!
