Today, I am taking part in Hanna Kraft’s The New Diary Blog Tour! 2017 seems to be the year when everyone is self-publishing their books! That’s so cool, isn’t it? 😉 😛
One Summer Sunday in 1930, Carol Ayers decides to keep a diary. She records many life changes over the days, weeks, and months. Can Carol and her family accept, and even like the changes, and at the same time continue their traditions?
The New Diary, a fictional account, contains actual excerpts from the real diary of Carol Ayers, the author’s great-grandmother.
Hanna Kraft, an introverted Christian Homeschooler, is very grateful to have the opportunity to learn at home and desires to spread her love of Jesus to others. Every day she sees new ways the Lord has provided, blessed, and cared for her and those she cares for. Hanna enjoys writing much more than any of her five siblings and has enjoyed it for several years. When she realized her ability to publish The New Diary, she decided to pursue writing as a bit more than a mere hobby.
Besides reading and writing, Hanna lives in the country with her family and enjoys playing the banjo, swimming, listening to much Southern Gospel music, and watching college basketball.
The New Diary is a cute little book that is a great clean, Christian read. There wasn’t really one story line that the whole plot stuck to, but I liked the little stories. They were funny and realistic.
A few of the characters I can’t remember very well, but the ones I DO remember seemed very real like they actually existed (although they actually did 😉 )
The writing style that Hanna used is not one of my favorite writing styles, but it fit the book’s style.
All in all, this is a great little book! There were a few things I caught (grammar, punctuation, etc.) but otherwise, this was a good read!
And last, but not least, an author interview with Hanna! 😀
