When one of my daughters finds a good book, they spread the word among their friends and teachers. And as a way of introducing next week’s guest post, I thought I’d share my 11-year-old’s love of this book “Emma’s River,” by Alison Hart. My daughter, whose name is also Emma, recently shared this book with her English teacher and class as one of her favorite books. When I asked her why she liked it so much, she was succinct. “I like the adventure, the descriptive language, and the history.” (A future book reviewer?) For more information about the book, click on the cover and it will take you to Alison’s website. There, you will also see what a prolific writer she is and can check out some of her other books.
Next week, Alison will share a post on food in fiction and I will be hosting a giveaway of her newest book, “Whirlwind.” So stay tuned. This is the start of a new feature on this blog, Foodie Fridays, where food remains a focus but is looked at through fiction, movies, music, and soon—because food is not just about recipes, right?
