Today through Monday, my sweet contemporary romance Some Place Like Home is free to download as an ebook on Amazon! (It’s also enrolled in Kindle Unlimited.)
When I lived in England, I loved experiencing all four seasons (something that does not happen where I’m originally from). Autumn seemed especially magical to me with its changing leaves, cooling weather, and rapidly shortening days. I could actually see and feel the earth preparing for a long winter’s rest.
I also learned about Harvest Sunday which reminded me somewhat of an American Thanksgiving. Many churches throughout the U.K. have a Harvest Sunday service in late September or early October. Traditionally, it falls on the Sunday nearest to the autumn equinox. In fact, the word ‘harvest’ is derived from the Old English word hærfest which means ‘autumn.’
So many of the autumn delights from my time in England have made their way into the pages of Some Place Like Home, including the charming tradition of a church or village fête. These local festivals provide a lovely way for families to gather and enjoy a bit of fun on the weekend. Proceeds often benefit local services or charities. I’ve yet to find anything quite like them in my part of the States.
Wherever you are in the world today, I hope this autumn season finds you and your loved ones safe and well. May blessings abound for you in the coming weeks! And thank you for reading!
All four books in the Richer in Love series are currently enrolled in Kindle Unlimted.
