ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Where I Was Planted
Author: Heather Norman Smith
Genre: Historical Fiction
Publisher: Ambassador International
Release Date: July 16, 2019
In the spring of 1961, ten-year-old Nate “Weenie” Dooley has a revelation-his father is not a good one.
Inspired by National Geographic, his favorite thing next to the Bible storybook his mother gave him before she died, Nate plans to leave his father and their home in the Smokies to set out on an adventure.
When he discovers that his father has left him first, it will take the help of a stray dog, some kind neighbors, a one-man-band, letters from a long-lost-aunt, and a new understanding of God to figure out he isn’t really alone.
Will he find that Copper Creek is where he’s always belonged? Or will his wanderlust keep him from ever coming back?
In her second novel, Heather Norman Smith demonstrates that love makes a family, and that while fathers may leave, our Heavenly Father is faithful, and He has a plan for all of us.
My Review of Where I Was Planted by Heather Norman Smith: When I saw this book on JustReads I knew I had to try it out. The cover, the blurb, and everything said that it would be an enjoyable story but opening that ebook? It was not what I was expecting, it was better, and I loved it. The way the Bible stories came into Nate’s life was so sweet and also so very sad, but the way he grew from them was one of the best parts of the book, I highly recommend Where I Was Planted for anyone over 13, I don’t believe younger reader enjoy the story as much though.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
