ABOUT THE BOOKEvery Window Filled with Light

Title: Every Window Filled with Light
Series: The Weldon Novels #1
Author: Shelia Stovall
Publisher: Elk Lake Publishing, Inc.
Release Date: March 23, 2021
Genre: Women's Contemporary Christian Fiction

A heartwarming small town story of faith and forgiveness, friendship, family, and hope. 

Welcome to Weldon, where the only things the locals love more than fried fruit pies are gossip and match-making. 

Librarian Emma Baker, a young and childless widow, believes her dream to build a family is over. It’s been two years since a student accidentally stabbed Emma’s husband to death, and her grief has stifled any interest in romance—until she meets Pastor Luke Davis. But when Emma learns Luke is counseling her husband’s killer fresh out of jail, her temper gets in the way. 

Meanwhile, Emma discovers twelve-year-old Harley, abandoned by her drug-addict mother, hiding in the library, and takes the girl in as her foster mom. Then a young mother is made homeless by an apartment fire, and Emma opens her home again. One person and one prayer at a time, Emma begins to discover hope. 

"Every Window Filled with Light by Shelia Stovall is a warm and delightful story of forgiveness and hope. Stovall skillfully paints a great word picture of her fictional little town of Weldon and peoples it with characters you will be glad to meet as you follow their stories. You'll love the generous heart of Emma and admire her resilience as she faces the challenges of life and love. If you like feel-good stories, then Every Window Filled with Light is a book you won't want to miss."—Ann H. Gabhart, best-selling author of An Appalachian Summer.

My take:

I was shocked to learn that this was Sheila Stovall's first novel. She weaves a beautiful story in the town of Weldon, Kentucky where people gather together to share the latest gossip or organized help when needed. The book is set in a southern town, full of southern hospitality. I needed a story where God's love is what wins each and every time. I am glad to see this is a part one, as I am invested in the other characters as well and want to learn even more about this darling place.

I love that this Christian fiction pulls no punches about where it lands.  There are a number of Bible verses that I loved.  When I read Christian fiction, I want to see how our faith is applied in everyday living. The author does just that, and I gained needed insight while loving the storyline and characters.

I found myself eager to end the day, where I could grab a cup of tea and snuggle up to read this book. I hope the next one comes out really soon.  I'm missing my people!


Shelia Stovall 

Shelia Stovall is the director of a small-town library in southern Kentucky, where only strangers mention her last name, and the children call her Miss Shelia. 

It tickles her to see shocked expressions when folks learn she’s traveling to Africa—again. She’s the worst missionary ever, but God continues to send her to the ends of the earth as He attempts to mold her into something useful. 

Shelia is a country girl who relishes eating a bologna sandwich at a country store just as much as savoring an elegant meal in a posh restaurant. 

Shelia and her husband Michael live on a farm, and she enjoys taking daily rambles to the creek with their three dogs. Spending time with family, especially her grandchildren, is her all-time favorite thing. The only hobby Shelia loves more than reading uplifting stories of hope is writing them.
