Scent of Lilacs by Ann H. Gabhart

After the summer of 1964, life for Jocie Brooke will never be the same.
Life-changing events rarely happen in quiet Hollyhill, Kentucky, and when they do, they are few and far between. But for young Jocie Brooke and her family, they happen all at once during the humid summer of 1964. Though on the surface things are just fine, it seems like everyone in Jocie’s life has something they’re not saying, something they’re hiding from her-and from themselves. As Jocie digs into her family’s past, she stirs up a whirlwind of discoveries. Will she find the answers everyone so desperately needs? Or will her questions lead to truths better left hidden?
Combining unforgettable characters, true-to-life struggles, and the perfect dose of humor and nostalgia, this riveting story from bestselling author Ann Gabhart explores the very essence of new life and love.

This is the newest release from revell and Ann Gabhart. this really sounded like a great novel that i would be interested in. but unfortunately i just couldn’t get into it no matter how much i tried. i always hate to not get into/finish a book but i just can’t help it sometimes. i’m sure though that a lot of people will like this novel as it sounded pretty great just not one for me.

Available March 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
