Roots and Sky by Christie Purifoy

"Roots and Sky" by Christie Purifoy is a real life poetry at it's best. When Christie's family moved to Maplehurst that September, she was heavily pregnant with their fourth child. In a way, Maplehurst was a new beginning for their family.

Their Victorian farmhouse sits atop a hill in Pennsylvania, down a long lane of Maple trees. In a way, this book is unlike most that I have read. It's a memoir of sorts, to their first year in their new home, and all of the surprises and memories made within that home.

Readers see first hand how Christie and her family opened their home to neighbors, and how they actually had to call their realtor to come help watch their other children when their newest baby was born, because they honestly didn't know anyone else in town.

I think Christie has a beautiful way with words. "Roots and Sky" is almost a book of poetry with the way Christie writes. It's a beautiful book to take to the beach, or to read outside on a nice Spring day.

I rate this book as 5 stars. I received this book for free from Revell, a division of Baker Book House in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
