Waiting on Wednesday: Seeing Things

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:



Seeing Things by Patti Hill

Publisher/Publication Date: B&H Publishing Group, Sept 2009

About the book: Birdie Wainwright, 72, isn’t concerned about seeing things that others can’t. For a woman who still climbs mountains with her dog (Miss Bee Haven) and likes to tango, the impractical visions brought on by macular degeneration are just another gift from God, adding more adventure to life. But when a tumble down the stairs breaks her ankle and leads back to her son’s home in Denver where she must convalesce, Birdie’s imagination really takes flight. Following a conversation with her grandson about The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, she begins to see and speak with the unkempt literary character himself on a regular basis. As the line between reality and whimsy turns brittle, faith is tested among friends and loved ones, and hope is reborn.

Seeing Things
is a story about family, reconciliation, and hearing from God in unexpected ways. (from Amazon website)

About the author: Patti Hill, after years of raising children and then joyfully teaching elementary school, finally took her long-ago college English professor’s advice (“You should be a writer”) and fulfilled the dream of having her first novel published to wide acclaim in 2005. She writes almost every day now and lives with her husband in Grand Junction, Colorado.
