Friday Feature: Writing Home

Today’s featured book is a new release from Anaiah Press, Writing Home, a contemporary Christian Romance by author Amy Anguish.

About the Book:

Christiana Jones dreamed her whole life of living in Huntsville, Alabama, so she can’t figure out why it doesn’t feel like home. Her relationships—on social media and in real life—seem shallow and empty. When she unearths a stack of her grandparents’ letters, it spurs an idea. Could she find something deeper with a penpal? 

Jordan White is taken aback when his cousin Tina suggests he become penpals with her childhood best friend. What could a Louisiana boy have in common with a girl two states away? After all, he’s happily settled on his family’s property and working the job he always wanted. But every letter they exchange has him wishing for more. 

As they grow closer through their written words, the miles between them seem to grow wider. Can love cross the distance and bring them home? 

Excerpt:

Tina’s phone rang and she pressed it to her ear with a look of apology.

“We’re next.” Chris motioned to the ride.

“I’m sorry. You go ahead without me, and I’ll try to ride again with you later.” Tina waved as she walked off to finish the phone call.

Seriously? Tina just ditched her? After convincing her to come up here this weekend in the first place, too. Should she just ride alone? That didn’t sound as fun.

The carnival worker motioned to Chris as the next bucket lowered and the couple occupying it got off. Chris hesitated an extra moment, looking over her shoulder at Tina, but she seemed engrossed in her conversation. With a sigh, Chris stepped up and sat on the seat by herself.

“Wait!”

Chris looked to find where the man’s voice had come from. Someone pushed through the Ferris wheel line, trying to get to the front. He ran up to the worker and handed him some tickets. The grizzled operator glanced at her, pocketed the tickets with a shrug, and motioned the guy into the seat next to her. He locked the bar down before she had a chance to protest, and their bucket swung backwards as it started its ascent.

How dare he? Of all the nerve! To just run up and force his way past everyone in line to jump on with someone who didn’t even know him! She turned to let him have a piece of her mind—and froze.

Brown hair just long enough to tousle and curl a bit above his eyebrows. Brown eyes staring straight at her with a hopeful expression. That face that she had secretly pulled up on her phone several times a week for the last few . . . ever since his cousin sent the picture to her in the first place.

He was here.

“Jordan.”

“Hi, Christiana.” His voice was low, soft, as if he was afraid to startle her.

“You’re here.” Was her belly doing flips because of the ride or because of him?
