1935: It was never much of an issue for Bess: living contentedly on her family’s farm, despite the Depression which loomed around them. But when her older sister Georgiana takes off to New York City to make a fortune and help Papa out, feelings of adventure and wanderlust strike Bess at home. Through their lively letter correspondence, the sisters recount to one another their adventures, surprises, and heartaches, leaving little room for depression. For in a world of such wonder, ain’t we got fun?
I’m so excited to be a small part of the cover reveal for Ain’t We Got Fun! Isn’t the cover just fantastic? I love the colors. I am very eagerly awaiting this book, which will be releasing May 25th, 2015. Birthday present anyone? ;) But really, I love old letters and the storyline is especially appealing to me, as my older siblings have begun to move away, and letters (actually, emails most of the time) are very important to me.
Now, a little bit about the talented authors of Ain’t We Got Fun:
EMILY CHAPMAN, also known as Bess Rowland, is a young hobbit living in the dear old South, and she is entirely bonkers. She’s a dreamer, an optimistic pessimist, and an introverted people person. Blue skies, dancing, Disney, and whipped cream make her happy, and she swears she’s been to Narnia. She’s been a reader all her life, became a writer because of that, and published her first novel, Cry of Hope, in March of 2014. But without her Savior, all of this would mean nothing. It is in Him that she puts her hope. “And hope does not disappoint us, for God has poured out His love into hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.” – Romans 5: 5
