On My Nightstand - Watching The Tree Limbs by Mary DeMuth

This novel about a young girl forced to confront adult issues latched onto my heart and refused to let go. Mara struggles to find answers we take for granted. Longing for love and a real home, she probes until those around her finally tell the truth.

Mary DeMuth shows us Mara's heart, her courage, and her determination to survive. The theme of God's answers to a child's prayer weaves its way seamlessly throughout the book.

I can't wait to read the sequel, as well as Mary's other works. Don't miss this classic example of the triumph of good over evil.

Oh my gosh, I have been wanting to read that so bad! I've just been too lazy to get on the computer and order it.
I subscribe to one of Mary's blogs. She seems like a wonderful person!
So glad you gave a good review. That's all I've heard so far.

Hi Jessica,

Welcome to my blog! I post here Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Yes, Mary's a excellent writer. I had the privilege of meeting her at the Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference a few weeks ago. She's a real sweetheart.

Hope you'll visit again. Thanks for commenting.

Hi Susan,
Thanks for stopping by. I really struggle reading non-fiction so I hope you'll post some juicy tidbits on your blog so I can cheat.
Enjoy your empy office today!

Hi Jessica -

How long have you been writing? Are you published? (I read so many blogs I sometimes forget details.)

My day was great, but I missed everyone. We have a nice bunch of people.

Susan :)
