Claiming Peace

Claiming Peace final I’m happy to welcome back Jo Huddleston to share with us about her newest release Claiming Peace. Thanks for joining us again, Jo! Please tell us about your book.

Thanks, Kimberly. Claiming Peace is book 3 in the Caney Creek Series, a Southern inspirational historical romance. Here is the back cover blurb:

Facing her lowest moments, Callie’s life begins to crumble. As he’s done with others of his extended family, can Jim help her find peace? Visit again the Callaway family and friends in 1951 who live in the Southern Appalachians of East Tennessee. Why did Callie have an appointment with a neurologist? Will she work her way through whatever lies ahead for her and her family? Does Emmajean’s attraction for the young lawyer, Terry, blossom further or die on the vine when he wants her to meet his parents? Can Caroline and Jim find happiness in their long-delayed marriage? You’ll meet some new characters as the Callaway saga continues. Follow the Callaway family throughout the Caney Creek Series—live their triumphs, sorrows, achievements, and losses.

Great teaser! What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?

If you feel God has given you a story to write, write it, and don’t give up!

That’s wonderful advice that is applicable to all areas of our lives. 🙂 What are you currently working on?

I’m busy with promotion on this last book of the Caney Creek Series. I have ideas for another series, set in West Virginia, but nothing official at this point.

We look forward to seeing what you end up doing with those ideas.

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you absolutely want to have with you.

Only three? Let me think here. Many people know I am uncomfortable in the dark. So…my Bible, lots of candles and matches, and lots of drinkable water. I’d love to have paper and pencil to write, but I decided water would be more important on the island.

LOL, That’s more than three. Thanks for offering to give one lucky commenter a copy of Claiming Peace.

      Good morning, Jo. Sorry I hadn’t sent the link yet. I got off to a slow start today and am just now getting back to the computer after making the post earlier. I’m looking forward to reading all the comments too. 🙂

    My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. Get together with family and friends, good food, and most of all being thankful what the Lord has done and will be doing. I sat at the table this past Thanksgiving and looked at everyone and felt so blessed. Great interview! I know it’s an excellent book. Thank you, Jo, for sharing with us. Please enter my name in this giveaway.

    Barbara, you’re welcome. Good to see your comment on Kimberly’s blog. Of the holidays when family and friends get together, Thanksgiving may be the best. Thanks for reading Kimberly’s blog. Good luck in the book drawing.

    I would have to say Christmas, at least before it got so commercialized. That’s when we celebrate the wonderful birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. And I think most people show more love then. Also, when we celebrate the birthday of my middle daughter. Yes, there was a Christmas Day when I received a live baby doll. Such a blessing. So this is #3 in the series? What happened to Book 2. It wasn’t mentioned. Thanks, Maxie
