Today, I am thrilled to welcome author Sara Brunsvold to I & R. Sara creates stories that speak hope, truth, and life. Influenced by humble women of God who find his fingerprints in the everyday, she does the same in her life and her storytelling. Sara’s recognitions include the 2020 ACFW Genesis Award for Contemporary Fiction.
Sara's goal is to “weave together wit and wisdom to create stories that are highly readable, relatable, and rememberable.” She has accomplished her objective with her debut novel, The Extraordinary Deaths of Mrs. Kip. This emotional, intergenerational story beautifully demonstrates that the very best life is made up of thousands of deaths to self.
The Extraordinary Deaths of Mrs. Kip was chosen by our Review Team as our July Book of the Month and today I & R is giving away one print copy to a lucky reader in Canada or the U.S.
