About the Book:
When Christie Purifoy arrived at Maplehurst that September, she was longing for a fixed point in her busily spinning world. The sprawling Victorian farmhouse sitting atop a Pennsylvania hill held within its walls endless possibilities. It was a place where she could finally grasp and hold the thing we all long for--home.

In lyrical, contemplative prose, Christie slowly unveils the trials and triumphs of that first year at Maplehurst--from summer's intense heat and autumn's glorious canopy to winter's quiet grief and spring's unexpected mercies. Through stories of planting and preserving, of opening the gates wide to neighbors, and of learning to speak the language of a place, Christie invites you into the heartache and joy of small beginnings and the wonder of a God who would make his home with us.

My thoughts:
What a beautifully written book!  Christie Purifoy has an exceptional talent to teach readers how to find God in even the most ordinary, everyday things and experiences.  Reading this beautiful memoir is like reading a diary, getting a good look at the author's thoughts and gaining an insight into Christianity that you may have never before glimpsed.  It is refreshing and endearing and really just a lovely book all the way around.  While reading this journal, you are given a look inside Christie Purifoy's heart and home and you feel like a welcome guest:)  Roots and Sky is a remarkably enjoyable read!
