Book Blog Tour Stop - Homefires by Emily Sue Harvey

Today, I'm excited to host a book blog tour stop for "Homefires" by Emily Sue Harvey.

About The Book:
"Homefires" is set in the Deep South’s Bible Belt on the eve of unprecedented moral changes. It is the story of Janeece and Kirk Crenshaw, a couple married just after their high school graduation who set out to make a life for themselves.

It is a life marked by surprises, none more dramatic than when Kirk receives his “high-calling” and becomes a pastor. It is a life marked by tragedy, the most heart-rending of which is a devastating event very close to home. And it is a life marked by challenges: to their church, to their community, and most decidedly to their marriage. And as the fullness of time makes its impact on their union, Kirk and Janeece must face the question of whether they have gone as far as they can together.

Filled with the rich emotions and evocative characters that fans have come to expect from Emily Sue Harvey, and reminiscent of the work of Jan Karon and Anne Rivers Siddons, "Homefires" is a poignant and compelling novel that will steal readers’ hearts.


A novel of family and Christian values, "Homefires" is a story of family, first and foremost. Author Emily Sue Harvey delivers a heartwarming and heart-wrenching accounting of a family who finds itself caught up in a time of changes and turmoil, and how they lean on their faith and each other to make it through the tough times.

My thanks to Pump Up Your Book Promotions for including me on this tour. I received a copy of the book from the publisher for review, and was not compensated for my opinion.
