‘The Splendor of Ordinary Days’ Kindle Fire HD 6 Giveaway

My thoughts:
I will begin by saying clearly and in all caps, this is NOT a Christian book, nor published by a Christian publisher, as I normally review. This book while not a CBA book, is very entertaining. The story does get a bit heated, and I remember a couple of usages of four letter words, if those are huge issues for you, then don't read this book. If not issues, then by all means read it, it is truly enjoyable. The imagery of this book is beautiful, the quirky characters make it funny, and the true life situations made it sad. So all rolled up in one is a book that will make you laugh and cry, and wish to visit Watervalley, Tennessee. My favorite part is the singing, that is all I will say about that, because I don't do spoilers. I enjoyed this book, was a bit put off by the fact that I didn't notice it wasn't a CBA book, but I still give it 4 stars for the wonderful story. I want to mention that alcohol consumption, and drunkenness is mentioned in this story, but I really didn't have an issue, as they were parts of the true life situations, that I found to be very sad. I have never read Jeff High's books before. I will be looking for them again. This book was provided for review purposes only, no payment was received for this review.

About the book: 
The Splendor of Ordinary Days
 (NAL, October 2015)

The pastoral charm of small-town Watervalley, Tennessee, can be deceptive, as young Dr. Luke Bradford discovers when he's caught in the fallout of a decades-old conflict.

After a rocky start as Watervalley's only doctor, Luke Bradford has decided to stay in town, honoring the three-year commitment he made to pay off his medical school debts. But even as his friendships with the quirky townsfolk deepen, and he pursues a romance with lovely schoolteacher Christine Chambers, several military veterans' emotional wounds trigger anger and unrest in Watervalley.

At the center of the clash is the curmudgeonly publisher of the local newspaper, Luther Whitmore. Luther grew up in Watervalley, but he returned from combat in Vietnam a changed man. He fenced in beautiful Moon Lake, posting "Keep Out" notices at the beloved spot, and provokes the townspeople with his incendiary newspaper.

As Luke struggles to understand Luther's past, and restore harmony in Watervalley, an unforeseen crisis shatters a relationship he values dearly. Suddenly Luke must answer life's toughest questions about service, courage, love, and sacrifice.
