Seeds of Summer by Deborah Vogts

I occasionally share my thoughts here on books that I feel are particularly good. Today I want to talk about Deborah Vogt’s latest release, Seeds of Summer, book two in her Seasons of the Tallgrass Series.

Seeds of Summer is a story about having a dream. A path you want to take, a goal you hope to reach, or a desire you need to satisfy. But this story is even more. It’s about family, sacrifice, second chances, forgiveness, and a God, who in His own timing, will surprise us.

The author brings us interesting characters we want to cheer for, hug, and a few times . . . even strangle! They’re lovable, real, and sometimes humorous. Natalie, the heroine, is strong, but still has her weaknesses. Her little brother is sweet and protective, while still being all-boy. Her sister, as most teenagers do, pushes the boundaries and Natalie’s buttons. The stepmother who left years ago and returns is a quirky character who visually leaps off the page. You might wish the elderly neighbor would move next door to you. And Pastor Jared Logan? He’s more than what he first appears to be.

If you want a great summer read – I recommend you read, Seeds of Summer.

Former rodeo queen Natalie Adams has big troubles. When her father dies unexpectedly, she’s saddled with the family ranch and two half-siblings whose mother abandoned them years ago and is long-believed dead. A handsome young pastor, Jared Logan, repeatedly comes to the rescue. But Natalie’s strong, independent nature wants nothing to do with his help.

Jared, a city boy do-gooder, has dreams of his own. He’s ready to solve Natalie’s problems, as well as any problems in his church. But his congregation resists change, and the more deeply involved he becomes with Natalie’s family, the more he questions his life as a clergyman. Jared’s enthusiasm turns to fear as he contemplates failure.

When Natalie’s stepmother unexpectedly shows up with plans of her own, Natalie must choose between the responsibilities of caring for a family or following her own desires. Love, forgiveness, and faith mingle together in the breathtaking world of the Kansas Flint Hills prairie.

Deborah Vogts and her husband have three daughters and make their home in southeast Kansas where they raise and train American Quarter Horses. As a student at Emporia State University studying English and journalism, Deborah developed a love for the Flint Hills that has never faded. In writing this series, she hopes to share her passion for one of the last tallgrass prairie regions in the world, showing that God’s great beauty rest on the prairie and in the hearts of those who live there.
