Happy Birthday to The Old River Road

One of my dearest blogger friends Ivy Rose is celebrating two birthdays today.
  1. the first birthday of her debut novel The Old River Road &
  2. her 19th birthday!
Naturally, I agreed to throw a party for her :D

Party Favors

To celebrate The Old River Road's first birthday, the e-book will be discounted to $0.99 on Amazon July 8th - 10th. If you haven't read her book, this is a great opportunity!! Ivy is also revealing the title of book two in the Long Lake Legacy series, so stay tuned for that ;)

But first some about her debut novel.

The Old River Road


When seventeen-year-old Clara Boutwell married her dashing coworker, William McDonald, she was convinced her life was near perfect. The journey before them as newlyweds in the great city of Chicago was promising and exciting. But a frightening disease soon takes William in its grip, forcing them to the clean air of the western frontier in a desperate attempt to save his life. But pioneering doesn’t prove to be easy, with miles between neighbors instead of fences. On the eastern Washington prairies, the McDonalds face hardships and trials in a new world where everything is tested, from physical endurance to emotional strength—down to their relationship and faith in the Lord.

     This novel tells the incredible true story of Clara and William, the great-great grandparents of the author, in a sweet narrative full of laughter, tears, and the struggles of an early pioneering family. Prepare yourself to share in their experience as you read this account of a pioneer family in Washington state, and see their lasting legacy that has endured into the fifth generation.
