ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Cynthia spends her days diving into words, worship, and wonder and celebrating 40 years of marriage, three grown children, and five outrageously adorable grandchildren. One of her greatest joys is helping other writers grow in their craft. To that end, she served as the assistant director and a faculty member of the Quad Cities Christian Writers Conference, has served as worship and devotions staff for the Write-to-Publish conference, and teaches at other conferences as opportunities arise. She speaks to women’s groups, at mother-daughter banquets, and for women’s refresher days and retreats. It is her delight to serve on her church’s worship team. Rather than “busy,” she likes the term “active.”
For 33 years, Cynthia wrote and produced the radio broadcast The Heartbeat of the Home. The scripted radio drama/devotional broadcast aired on as many as 50 radio stations and two cable/digital television stations over the years. Cynthia was the editor of the ministry’s Backyard Friends magazine, a twenty-page, twice annual publication that reached 5,000 homes, churches, and parachurch outreaches.
ABOUT THE BOOK
If you would like to read the first chapter of When The Morning Glory Blooms, go HERE.
My thoughts: I love that the main subject in this book is that of the unwed mother. You see this a lot nowadays and it is becoming more acceptable, but in times gone by this wasn't always the case. Anna is one character that I immediately fell in love with. I love that era of history and love what she does to help other women who happen to be mostly young unwed mothers. Then you fast forward to Ivy who is a young unwed mother in the Vietnam time frame who takes care of Anna and who gets cared for in turn by Anna. And last but not least you get Becky who became a grandmother too soon. I loved this book. I highly recommend that everyone read it and understand.
