Month of Romance Giveaway Week Three
This week I have a real treat for all of you! Anita Higman is providing two copies of her absolutely wonderful book, A Marriage in Middlebury! That’s right, this week we will have two winners!
I read and reviewed A Marriage in Middlebury back in December. It is such a sweet romance and fits the “Month of Romance” theme beautifully 🙂

The idea for this book came from my absolute love of tearooms in Texas. In fact, here’s my note to readers on that very subject:
More than a decade ago I met a woman named Linda Becker
who opened a tearoom in the Houston burbs called, Tea for
Two. Her eatery and gift shop did so well, she opened a second
shop. Over the years I’ve enjoyed her wonderful tearoom
fare as well as the quaint ambiance. Linda’s tearoom isn’t just
a café—it’s a gathering place for friends, a place to eat home
cooked food, and a place so cozy you don’t want to leave.
As a writer I thought it might be fun to create a heroine who
owns a tearoom similar to Linda’s and set her shop in a small
town on the gulf coast of Texas. So, that’s how the novel, A
Marriage in Middlebury, was born. Even though my story, the
characters, and the town are fictional, Linda’s tearooms are
real places you can visit and enjoy. Thank you, Linda, for the
great food, and the fellowship, and the inspiration.
Everything was going smoothly for the main character when suddenly everything changes with the return of her ex. What advice do you have when life throws a curveball?
As a Christian we should trust in the One who made us, the One who’s known us from the first day when we were being knit together in our mother’s womb, the One who loves us best. Trusting in Him during life’s storms is the only answer, and it’s more than enough.
Is there a certain Bible passage or verse that goes along with the theme of A Marriage in Middlebury?
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)
Do you find yourself returning to similar themes in your novels (i.e. forgiveness, trust, etc.) or do you have a new message with each release?
Yes, I tend to go back to the themes of forgiveness and reconciliation. These are not only good themes for a story, but they are paramount in living the Christian life.
What do you hope readers will walk away with after they turn the last page of A Marriage in Middlebury?
That with God all things are possible!
Thanks, Anita, for sharing about your book with us!
