A Wittle Conversation With Ivy From Beyond Her Calling!


In case you’re wondering, this is NOT Jo, which you could probably tell straight away, couldn’t you? Jo’s busy with the top secret project that she’s really giddy about.. anyway, she called me, Gale Darn, back here for a very important reason: Kellyn Roth has a new book out! 😀 And because TL&HD loves books, we signed up! 😊

Beyond Her Calling Blurb:

At twenty, Ivy Knight feels as if she hasn’t accomplished anything of worth. Her life stretches on before her, empty and pointless. Though her faith in God and her mental abilities have been strengthened, she still doubts herself. Does God have a purpose for a socially awkward, often confused and frightened young woman?

Jordy McAllen has just returned to Scotland after his education in London. Though he has accomplished a lot for a farm lad such as himself, he fears that what everyone has always said about him may be true: he won’t really make a good doctor. Determined to prove himself, Jordy snatches up the opportunity to become the doctor in the village of Keefmore near his parents’ farm.

Helping Jordy with his work at Keefmore seems like the perfect opportunity for Ivy. Still, she doubts herself. Is there a purpose to Ivy’s life?

Ooh, this sounds really fascinating! And to make it even better, here’s the author’s bio!

Author Bio

Kellyn Roth lives on an Eastern Oregon ranch with her parents, little brothers, border collies, cats, and a few dozen cows and chickens. Always a lover of a good story, and especially of telling one, she’s been writing since she was seven and published her first novel at fourteen. Now a homeschool grad, she divides her time between penning her next Christian historical novel, creating professionally silly articles at kellynroth.blog, and her actual life. Actual life plays second fiddle sometimes, though.

Ahh, this just makes me wanna read more! Well, anyway, as the title shows, I got to meet up with the Ivy Knight and talk to her a little with my sister MJ!
I’m in bold,
MJ’s in bold italics,
And Ivy’s in normal.
-Hi there! First off, how are you doing this lovely day?
Oh, absolutely lovely! I’m so glad to be here!
-Okay, great! We are, too! 😀
So, what’s life like in Scotland? Would you ever want to live somewhere else for a change?
Well, normally I live in England, so Scotland is a change for me! But I’m glad of it this time, even though I normally like to stay home. So yes, it’s nice living “somewhere else” for a change!
That’s so awesome! Moving out is so.. exhilarating, really. Has anything happened since you began wondering about your life to make you change your thoughts?
Yes! I went to Scotland. It’s been quite an experience! Of course, my sister Alice leaving for her new home (she’s married now) was the thing that made me want something more.
– How does working with Jordy go? Is it exciting, thrilling?
It’s not terribly exciting or thrilling, but it can be scary! I hate the sight of blood, and I hate when people are in pain, and it’s frightening that so many people are sick or hurt.
But I think it goes well! I like it, at least. I don’t know how helpful I am, though. I’m not very experienced.
-What’s your favorite thing to do in your free time?
Oh, reading! I love books. They take you away from the world – oftentimes into a much nicer, more pleasant one! I think everyone should read. It’s one of the best things in the world! It teaches you about people, it gives you empathy and understanding, it helps you learn … and it’s fun!
– Exactly, reading books is like going to another world! I can’t wait to read yours. 😀
In the blurb, it mentions you have doubts. When you struggle with doubts about life in general, where do you turn to?
It used to be that I’d mostly turn to my mother or Alice (my twin sister). But of course Mother and Alice won’t always be there for me. But you know who will be there for me? God! So I’ve got to learn to turn to Him.
-*nods*I gotta learn that too. Ooh, anyway, I gotta know something. Aren’t brothers the most annoying things ever thought of???
What? No! I love my brothers.
Well … granted, they can be a little frustrating sometimes … but I still love them!
That was so fun! Thanks Ivy for the chat! Although YOUR brother must be awesome. MY brothers are annoying! 😛
Please ignore my sister Ivy. It was a pleasure to have you!
Hmph. Oh, and don’t forget, there’s a giveaway going on right now!
Plus, the Goodreads and Amazon links are here if you wanna check it out.
