Fireflies in December

I just read Fireflies in December by Jennifer Erin Valent and it was so good. It is set in rural, depression era, Virginia and it touches on faith, a young girl coming of age, and faces head on the issue of racism and how complex that can be to see. If you are looking for a good read this week, pick up a copy, grab a cup of tea and settle in for a nice escape!

  1. This may be my next book! Sounds interesting. I love to listen to audiobooks because I have a 30 minute commute to work. Thanks for the tip!

  2. This sounds like my kind of book. Thanks for the review.

    I wish I were a faster/take hold sort of reader!

  3. Bellah, I am so glad to see your review of this book. I read another review recently, I think maybe it was in my latest issue of TWC (Todays Christian Woman) magazine. I remember thinking then that it sounded like something I would enjoy. Your review just confirms it. I have to pick up an order at my local bookstore tomorrow so I'll definitely be checking out Fireflys in December.
