The Song of Copper Creek by Kristin McKendry, LDS Blog Tour & Giveaway


It's been more than a year since she lost her family - a tragedy that has left Grace Whitaker a shadow of her former self. Unable to move on surrounded by so many memories, she makes the desperate decision to return to her childhood home in Port Dover, Ontario, Canada. There she hopes to salvage the broken pieces of her life - but what she finds is the promise of peace and healing in an unlikely place.

Copper Creek Farm is part of a Canadian historical museum, offering glimpses into 19th-century pioneer life. Yet the farm offers much more than that - it is a place of second chances. For Grace, the opportunity to work the land alongside the loving Whelan family is the first step toward healing. But she isn't the only broken soul seeking hope on the farm. Grace is joined by a young man in trouble with the law, as well as the Whelans' son and grandchildren, who are struggling through their own heartbreak. Together, these survivors discover the strength that can be found in friendship. But when faced with the uncertainty of the future, will they have the courage to move beyond the past to forge new lives for themselves?

My Review:

Grace's story really drew me in as a reader right away. I wanted to know what she was running away from and what she was trying to find. What had happened to cause her so much and to shy away from children? What was her story and how would she find the peace she was seeking? I found her story compelling, emotional and moving. I wanted to give her a great big hug and tell her it would be okay and that she could work through it. The Whelan family felt like family to me by the end of the book. I loved Toby especially, he tugged on my heart strings. This is a beautiful story that shares Grace's journey and the people she meets along the way.

Rating: clean/LDS/Mormon
