    Six-time Christy Award winner Lynn Austin has won a loyal following for her inspiring historical fiction. In Wonderland Creek, young Chicago-area librarian Alice Grace Ripley is left heartbroken when her fiancé breaks up with her just as the Great Depression forces her out of a job. To escape the local gossip, Alice volunteers to deliver donated books to a library in rural Kentucky. There she discovers that God still has a plan for her after all.

    If you could sum up Wonderland Creek in three words, what would they be?

    An intriguing, heart warming, page turner


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wonderland Creek?

    I believe the most memorable moments occur between Ally and Lilly. Lilly's insights and verbage are often touching and inspirational as well as practical and even humorous. I found myself wondering what she was going to say next. Her back story, once revealed, was filled with faith and hope and to me quite compelling.

    (My mother's opinion.)

    In my opinion the most memorable moments were when Ally found herself thrust into a different world. From finding herself having to be more domesticated than she was accustomed to, to dealing with the outdoor life out of a Kentucky backwoods woman, she tackled it with defiance, determination and courage. She was a character not soon to be forgotten.


    What about Kate Forbes’s performance did you like?

    I like the way Kate Forbes used different voice inflection for different characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The grass isn't always greener on the other side of the mountain.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book, to anyone. I love the writing of Lynn Austin. She has just the right combination of humor and drama.

    (My Mother's opinion)
    READ THIS BOOK!! You will be glad you did.
