It needs a lot of work still, and whenever I go back to reread the first few chapters, I cringe and just have rewrite some of it.
So it is still a working progress.
Now just some pieces here and there:
Katherine set about to make the house a home, remembering her mother’s wise words she had heard throughout her young life:
“Remember, Katherine. A home is more than clean floors and neat beds. Even if you fill the whole house with dozens of flowers and the brightest décor you can find, it will be a cold, empty home if you do not fill it with love.
Laughter, tears, joy and sorrow must all abide in a house of love, for these are the things that make up life.
And if the love of God is in every corner and crack of your empty home, it will be filled with the strength and comfort that will enable you go get through life.
Home is where God’s heart is.”
Katie embraced these words with all her being and vowed to make her house a happy, welcoming home, where the Presence of her Savior would warm every heart that entered.
Oh, yes, she had times where her selfish nature would overcome her vow, and she would allow herself a few moments of anger and frustration, but after all, to be human is to be flawed, and Katherine Renee Hayes Tucker was the first to admit that she had quite a few flaws
It still needs a lot of work, but what so you think?
Would you be interested in reading such a novel?
