About When We Last Spoke (from the back cover):
“Humor, heartbreak, and triumph are served with whipped cream and lots of local nuts in this heartwarming tale of family, friendship, and forgiveness in Fireside, Texas.
Meet Juliet Cranbourne, local radio personality and owner of a whimsical kitchen gadget store, and her sister Evangeline, a fruit tree geneticist who works for Oregon State University.
When a rift due to their orphaned past affects their sisterhood, Juliet convinces Evangeline to come home for Christmas and choose headstones to honor grandparents Walt
(a tenderhearted, good looking rancher) and Ruby (a blue-ribbon fiddler, fabulous cook, and expert in the art of making family feel loved). As they cruise through Fireside in Ruby’s
Thunderbird, Juliet hopes that healing memories will somehow smooth rough roads ahead.
Does the tremendous love that marked Walt and Ruby’s lives still have the power to renew their sisterhood and help them find their place in the world?”
This book is written in an easy-to read style and told from the viewpoint of young Juliet. It’s written in first person with Juliet telling the story. It’s chock full of personalities and real life.
There’s a trailer for the book right here on You Tube if you’d like to watch it!

It is a novel, but it’s interesting to me how our lives, our circumstances, the people in our lives and the things that play out impact us in so many ways. We often don’t get to choose these things, but we do have choices to make and we can choose our attitudes and whether we will accept our circumstances or grow angry or bitter about them. I tend to think we all have times when we’d rather choose the anger instead of reaching for the grace and finding the good that IS always in there somewhere.
The author, Marci Henna will be giving away a FREE Kindle version from Feb. 20-24 on Amazon!! Don’t miss out on that.
Here’s a little bit about the author.
I think it’s interesting to know a teeny bit about the background someone comes from.
Marci Henna was born in Austin, Texas and lived as a child in Kenya, East Africa with the Wakamba tribe where her parents managed a medical research station. She later moved to the Hill Country ranch which has been in the family since the 1800’s and currently lives in Austin.
