Each time I read another book by Deborah Raney, it reminds me why she is one of my VERY favorite authors! Deb writes in such a way that it is easy to be "swept into" the story, and I feel that I am actually there and listening to the characters speaking. Deb has a series of 3 books that take place in fictional Clayburn, Kansas. I read the first one last year, REMEMBER TO FORGET. I loved that story and eagerly awaited the second book, LEAVING NOVEMBER. I just finished reading it, and LOVED IT!! In this story, the messages of putting the past behind us and moving forward with God's help are shown with true-to-life characters and situations, all set in a cozy little town I would love to visit (if it weren't fictional!). Now I can't wait to read Deb's third Clayburn book....and any other Deborah Raney books I can get my hands on! I highly recommend LEAVING NOVEMBER for an enjoyable, inspiring read.

Leaving November sounds like a book I would like to read. Maybe when I am done with my Master's program I will be able to read a book again. (smiles)

Hey Lisa! Thanks for stopping by. Yes, you would love this book (and the first one in the series)! I'm so proud of you for going ahead with your Master's (and PROUD for finishing that first degree - YAY!). Blessings and hugs, Patti :)

I attended one of Deb's workshops last year at the ACFW Conference. I couldn't believe she said she was a slow writer. She had a great workshop.

Thanks for stopping by, Jennifer! This will be my very first ACFW conference and I can't wait to take a workshop from Deb!
Blessings, Patti
