ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Cynthia spends her days diving into words, worship, and wonder and celebrating 40 years of marriage, three grown children, and five outrageously adorable grandchildren. One of her greatest joys is helping other writers grow in their craft. To that end, she served as the assistant director and a faculty member of the Quad Cities Christian Writers Conference, has served as worship and devotions staff for the Write-to-Publish conference, and teaches at other conferences as opportunities arise. She speaks to women’s groups, at mother-daughter banquets, and for women’s refresher days and retreats. It is her delight to serve on her church’s worship team. Rather than “busy,” she likes the term “active.”
For 33 years, Cynthia wrote and produced the radio broadcast The Heartbeat of the Home. The scripted radio drama/devotional broadcast aired on as many as 50 radio stations and two cable/digital television stations over the years. Cynthia was the editor of the ministry’s Backyard Friends magazine, a twenty-page, twice annual publication that reached 5,000 homes, churches, and parachurch outreaches.
ABOUT THE BOOK
If you would like to read the first chapter of When The Morning Glory Blooms, go HERE.
I enjoyed this book, it was a bit different, and took me a couple of chapters to get into, but I'm glad I kept with it. Once I became used to the writing style, I was swept away.
Anna is an interesting old lady with a wonderful tale, Ivy, has a bit of a problem and as the two connect their stories seem to weave together. The symbolism of the Morning Glory was perfect in my eyes...but then I LOVE morning glories so I may be a bit prejudiced!
This is a story with heart, with love and with quite a bit of thought put into it. This is a story about the pain of young women that has been felt for centuries, and will most likely be felt by women for centuries to come.
