Martin Hospitality Blog Tour // ft. an Author Interview

HEY GUYS WE'VE GOT A BLOG TOUR TODAY. Plus it's extra exciting because 1) I've read the book and it's great, 2) I'm friends with this author so that makes me #famous, and 3) I hinted that I might use flamethrowers and unicorns in this!! Which I probably won't- BUT THERE'S STILL THAT LURKING ANTICIPATION THAT MAYBE I WILL. WHO CAN TELL.


31841035Gemma Ebworthy is eighteen, pregnant, and alone. Now that she’s been evicted, she spends the night in a barn, never dreaming that tomorrow could bring kindness of a life-changing magnitude.

The Martins aren’t a typical family—even for rural Kansas. With more kids than can be counted on one hand and a full-time farm, Gemma must make a lot of adjustments to fit in. But despite their many differences, Gemma finds herself drawn to this family and their radical Christian faith.

When Gemma’s past collides with her yet again, she must begin revealing her colorful history. With every detail Gemma concedes, she fears she will lose the Martins’ trust and the stable environment she desires for herself and her unborn child. Just how far can the Martins’ love and God’s forgiveness go?


Abigayle has been inspired to write since she could spell her own name. Her passion wasn’t completing the stories (she did that twice and decided it wasn’t for her), it was jotting down the ideas.

But in 2015, a story grabbed her—one she had to finish. Inspired by a crazy dream in a genre she no longer reads, Abigayle set off on a journey to write her first novel and she hasn’t looked back since.

Writing is her ministry, freelance editing her job, and reading her pastime—all of which prove that God really does know what He’s doing when He inspires a 6-year-old with a pencil in her left hand.




Look!! An interview with the author!!! IN VIDEO FORMAT. Tell me this is not the coolest thing of ever and I will show you somebody who does not appreciate coolness. Proceed to watch this only if you're ready to be entrusted with information that you could probably be killed for. 

JUST KIDDING. Mostly. 



OH LOOK THERE'S A GIVEAWAY. But here's the deal guys: Even if you enter the giveaway, BUY THE BOOK. FROM AMAZON. WITH LIKE ACTUAL MONEY.

Because you probably won't even win (#sorrynotsorry) and even if you do, two copies of this never hurt anyone. The author is sending me a signed copy of this for free (I like to think this makes me famous but it's actually just because I helped beta read, shhh) but I'm still buying it!! Let's support Abi because she's a Christian, homeschool graduate, Indie author!! And I know she put tons of work into this!! And also I said so. Obey my whims.

    1. OKAY but in my defense I think we should all be glad I did not manage to procure a flamethrower- I do not think that would have been good. :P

      YAAAY GOOD JOB. :D You are way ahead of me haha. XD

    2. You never said that you were actually going to use it/give us a demonstration. You just said that there might be one. :D Don't you find kind of interesting/cool how when you say that you're gonna have a flamethrower, everyone's first thought is that you're going to use it? :)
