(Look, Kell! ^ just for you)

HOWEVER, since I missed the first week of July, I thought, why not go a bit dramatic with the post? So, you will get an epic AUTHOR INTERVIEW with Kelly and… a walk down memory lane. Because the Kees and Colliers are fabulous. We’ll do the interview first so I don’t bore y’all straight off. 😉

KEES AND COLLIERS

The Lady of the Vineyard

Is it too late for Adele to return to her daughter’s life?

When her ex-husband reappears in her life determined to spend more time with their child, Adele Collier allows him to take Judy to France for the summer. As the summer goes by, an internal battle rages in Adele’s heart. Can she give up her glamorous lifestyle to win her daughter’s heart?

Six-year-old Judy is more than happy to trade Adele’s neglect for her father’s adoring care. She loves his vineyard and wishes she could stay there forever, but someday she must return to England. Can Judy trust her mother again?

“A great story about love, emotional turmoil, and the desire to set things right.” ~Long and Short Reviews

“A whimsically beautiful and heartwarming story.” ~Faith L. Potts, author of Dandelion Dust

Flowers in Her Heart

Can Adele change her entire lifestyle to be a mother to her babies?

When her husband goes off to war, Adele feels lost and confused. In a new, less-than-ideal place in a frightening, less-than-ideal time, she flees to the garden with her daughters, determined to make their new house a home, even if it is from the outside in.

Battered by her own inner turmoil and scoffed at by those close to her, Adele seeks to make something beautiful amidst chaos. But can even the most beautiful flowers cover the years of scars?

“So sweet, so true, and so downright good.” ~Angela R. Watts, author of Seek

“A fantastic story about family, faith, and a search for beauty and truth.” ~Goodreads Reviewer

From Now ‘Til Forever

The war is over, but it’s not as easy coming home as he anticipated.

Troy Kee doesn’t know how he’ll settle back into life with his family after WWII, but he’s determined to do so. He feels that if he can just get his family back to their vineyard in France, everything will be all right. But his wife has other plans.

This charming novelette finale to the Kees & Colliers series highlights the difficulties of returning home after a war.

Souls Astray

Adele has been lost for a long time now …

Adele Collier has sought a carefree lifestyle ever since her tragic childhood. Determined to never allow anyone or anything to control her life or emotions again, she consistently seeks distraction in gaiety. But shaking her ghosts isn’t as easy as she’d like.

Troy Kee has been alone in the world since the Great War took his parents and left him in care of his younger sister. When she marries, he’s left to seek after his goal of a healthy, complete family. But how can he focus on his dream when trouble plagues his family vineyard?

When Adele and Troy meet, a whirlwind romance begins—but can two lost souls have a healthy relationship?

“A tragic, well-crafted story of romance, family dynamics, and pain in the years between WW1 and WW2.” ~Jana Tenbrook

Souls Astray is a heartrending novel, full of poignant themes and topics that are important even today. It is a captivating read and will leave you wanting more.” ~Michaela Bush

AUTHOR INTERVIEW

KELLYN ROTH

What inspires you to write historical fiction?

 
I’ve always loved historical eras – there’s just such coolness to it! I really don’t know why I do it – I suppose ’cause all my ideas are historical?
 

What kind of romance do you enjoy writing most?

 
Hmm, I think romance where they get to slowly be friends and have to conquer things together even while denying that they’re going to get married? Stupid trope, really, as who is that unaware of their feelings/the opposite matchyness? But I enjoy it.


What character do you relate to the most in the Kees and Colliers series?

 
Probably Harrington. Leave me alone with my books, for crying out loud. 😛
 
I also like Troy a lot, though he’s a lot better than I am. He’s a good guy.


What was your biggest internal struggle while writing this series?

 
I think the biggest problem was Adele. I had to make her likable, yet I didn’t like her, and then I did like her slightly (or at least understood what was going on with her), but she was still unlikable to most people …
There were times when I wanted to just kill her off and have done with it. But I didn’t, and even though she’s never going to be perfect, at least she’s semi-bearable.


What do you pray readers walk away with after reading these books?

I hope they’ll realize that new beginnings are a thing, taking responsibility for your actions is important, and no one’s perfect but that doesn’t give you an excuse for being a brat.
I also love the themes of fatherhood and motherhood I got to weave in. Too many people nowadays undervalue children.
Thanks for interviewing me!

It is always a pleasure to interview and review Kelly’s books. She’s a dear friend. A sister in Christ. A pal, if you will. Now, it’s time for memory lane. (You had better have read that in a VeggieTales voice. #sorryKelly #Oldhabitsman)
The Lady of The Vineyard came out years ago (I haven’t finished my coffee so don’t expect me to do math) and I had the honor to read it as a beta. I loved it. Then Kellyn published a compilation of short stories, more recently, containing all the tiny, original stories.
I read Goldfish aloud and my little nieces adored it! So from the start, the series has been utterly adorable. Then I hear Kelly was relaunching and rewriting. So, I’m totally pumped I have the original… And I already enjoy the current new books!

Souls Astray was a great step into the series and I read Flowers In Her Hair and adored it. I can’t wait to buy the whole series.

HUGE congrats to Kelly for this series release. She deserves all the hugs. And coffee. BUT she DOES NOT GET Harrington. ;P So there.
God bless,
Ang
