This book is filled with ironic twists of phrase and a humorous glint in the style of Mary Connealy and Kelly Hake. The stunning and uh-oh glimpse of Adelaide on the cover is in every way indicative of the adventure to be found within the pages of Head in the Clouds.
This story kept me reading. The characters were altogether engaging and loveable. Gideon was such a clash of cultures. An English nobleman now a sheep farmer?
And Adelaide. I could relate to her on so many levels, yet she pulled me into circumstances so unique…the pages turned of themselves.
By the way, she’s a great fan of yellow, books, fairy tales, and twirling her hair around her finger. So I adored her, of course. This is definitely a keeper story that holds a treasured place on my bookshelf. I’ll be rereading and rereading this one!
Truly, I just studied the front and back and flipped through a couple pages just now, but I don’t think there is anything about this book I didn’t agree with or enjoy. Scanning a few sentences puts a grin on my face and puts Head in the Clouds right back on my to-read list.
For Christian fiction lovers, this book presents the faith-filled life in a way that is neither over-the-top or under-done. For romantics like myself, Adelaide’s oft-addlepated escapades are hysterical while Gideon is just plain loveable. And if you are looking for a book that will make you laugh and smile at regular intervals, well, pick up this one. Karen Witemeyer is now officially on my favorite authors list!
