The House on Malcolm Street by Leisha Kelly - Blog Tour Oct 3 - 9



by Leisha Kelly
Touring Oct 3 - 9

When tragedy steals her future, can Leah learn to trust again?

It is the autumn of 1920, and Leah Breckenridge is desperate to find a way to provide for her young daughter.  After losing her husband and infant son, she is angry at God and fearful about the days ahead.  Finding refuge in a boardinghouse run by her late husband's aunt - Leah begins the slow process of mending her heart.

Is it the people who surround her -- or perhaps this very house -- that reach into her heart with healing?  As Leah finds peace tending to an abandoned garden, can she find a way to trust God with her future?

Leisha Kelly is the author of several bestselling historical fiction books, including Emma's Gift, Julia's Hope, and Katie's Dream.  She has served many years on her local library board, continuing to bring good reads and educational opportunities to her community.  Once a watiress, cafe manager, tutor, and EMT, Leisha is now a busy novelist and speaker who is active in the ministries of her church.  She lives with her family in Illinois.

Nice review!

I thought that The House on Malcolm Street was an interesting, but heavy read. I have read several books by Leisha Kelly and enjoyed Julia’s Hope, Emma’s Gift and Katie’s Dream.

The House on Malcolm Street was not a light hearted story. The issues it deals with are heavy and make for a daunting read sometimes. Does it have a lot of meaning packed into one novel? Yes, it is likely one you won’t forget about, but it’s kind of a rainy day book, if you know what I mean.

I have also written a more in-depth review on my own site:

Oops!

When I said a “more in-depth review” I meant more in-depth compared to the short comment I had made.

Sorry if that was unclear.
