Hi everyone! Today, I have the honor of being a part of a blog tour for my sweet friend, Hailey Rose! I’ve been following her blog and Instagram for . . . about a year (?) now, and now I get to help re-release her book, The Old River Road!
The Old River Road has officially been published for three years, and it’s being republished with Hailey’s official author name! Fun Fact: it was originally published under Hailey’s pen name, Ivy Rose! Not only is that part different, but there is brand new content inside too!
About the Book-
When seventeen-year-old Clara Boutwell married her dashing coworker, William McDonald, she was convinced her life was nearly perfect. For newlyweds in the great city of Chicago, the journey ahead was exciting and promising. When a frightening disease takes William in its grip, the young couple is forced to the clean air of the western frontier in a desperate attempt to save his life. On the eastern Washington prairies, the McDonalds face hardships and trials in a new world where everything is tested, from physical endurance to emotional strength—down to their relationship and faith in the Lord.
This novel tells the incredible true story of Clara and William, the great-great-grandparents of the author, in a sweet narrative full of laughter, tears, and the struggles of an early pioneering family. Prepare yourself to share in their experience as you read this account of a pioneer family in Washington state, and see their lasting legacy that has endured into the fifth generation.
