About Ruth Logan Herne

USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Ruth Logan Herne is the author of over 50 novels and novellas. She loves God, her family, country, coffee, chocolate and dogs, and wishes possums would leave the cat food on the side porch alone. And yet… they don’t. With over two million books in print, Ruthy is living her dream of touching hearts and souls by writing the kind of books she likes to read.

She lives on a pumpkin farm in Western New York where they grow all kinds of cool things for fall from sumptuous squashes and veggies to gorgeous stacking pumpkins. Ruthy’s farm is quickly becoming the place to be every September and October. Ruthy herself is in charge of the kitchen and her very own baked goods, jams and jellies are for sale. The farm gives Ruthy a chance to chat with real people… then turn them into fictional characters during the quiet of mid-winter, so be careful what you say!

She loves chatting with readers through her website blog and hanging with readers and writers in Seekerville… where coffee is always hot, fresh and good! She loves playing in the kitchen, too, with a wonderful group of regionally-inspired inspirational authors at the Yankee Belle Cafe On Goodreads, she’s (yes, you guessed it!) Ruth Logan Herne, and that’s how to find this prolific author on facebook, too!

5 Stars!

‘She’d gotten this far by trusting the Almighty. She’d travel the rest of the way doing the exact same thing.’

Ruth Logan Herne takes us back to the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee in this second book of her Kendrick Creek series. And what an absolutely wonderful story it was! I’ve always said that Herne writes with heart and I feel that way about each of her books. It’s just such a unique thing about her work. I really can’t adequately explain it. I just ‘feel’ it. And this one profoundly affected me. I felt it down deep–the situations, the plot, the characters. As soon as I started reading, this book wrapped itself around my heart completely. It felt soooo good. I finished in just hours, could not tear myself away. Well done indeed!

My thanks to the publisher and author for a copy of this book. The opinion in this review is completely my own.
