Review: Appalachian Serenade by Sarah Loudin Thomas

From Amazon: Delilah Morrissey has always wanted to be a mother, but when she becomes a young widow, that dream now seems farther away than ever. Unable to continue to live alone in Chicago, her only option is to accept her sister’s offer to move in with her family back in West Virginia. Will Delilah have the faith to pursue a new dream–even if it means giving up the old?

In this charming novella, debut novelist Sarah Loudin Thomas introduces readers to Wise, West Virginia–a small town nestled in an Appalachian valley where the everyday miracles of life and faith play out in stories of healing, hope, and love. 

Includes an excerpt of Miracle in a Dry Season, the first full-length novel in the Appalachian Blessings series–a book New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber called, “Wonderful, simply wonderful.”


This was a really sweet novella. It certainly isn’t action packed by any means, but it was enjoyable all the same.  It was extremely well written, and did not have that same rushed feeling as a lot of novellas have (too much packed into too few pages). The amount of story was perfect! Not to mention heartwarming… The book picks up on the ideas of giving up dreams, and sometimes God might have something better in mind for us. Something that we can all relate to.

Sarah Loudin Thomas is a new author, and if her books follow the same style as this lovely novella, I can’t wait to read them. But it shouldn’t be too long of a wait, since h debut novel, Miracle in a Dry Season will be coming out July 29th. I’ll be adding it to my bookshelf.

But for now, you can pick up Appalachian Serenade (eBook) free on Amazon!
