A Stillness of Chimes
By Meg Moseley
It is an honor to welcome Meg Moseley back to The Power of Words! Meg lives in my home state of Georgia and writes southern fiction of the highest quality, but the appeal of her writing transcends that specific genre. Meg is a wordsmith - and her latest book, A Stillness of Chimes, has a hauntingly beautiful quality.
When I compiled my 2014 Best of the Best list, I had no hesitation in placing A Stillness of Chimes on it (click on title for my review). You can also click here to see my interview with Meg last year. One of you will receive a copy of this book from Meg, details at the end of this post.
Now enjoy as Meg shares about A Stillness of Chimes and what it means to her . . .
Meg: A Stillness of Chimes tells the story of a young woman who’s shocked to learn that the beloved father she’d thought dead might have faked his death and slipped away to the Blue Ridge Mountains near her childhood home. Her quest to learn her father’s fate reveals almost more truth than she can handle.
I think the heart of this story is that even imperfect and damaged people can demonstrate the kind of love that asks us to lay down our lives for our friends. That “greater love” won’t necessarily look heroic, but real heroes don’t worry about appearances.
In writing A Stillness of Chimes, I discovered my voice as a writer, as well as some themes that will always be important to me. I’m not one of those writers who can churn out a book a year, so my current focus is to find a new story that will be worth pouring my heart and soul into, for as long as it takes.
Carole: Meg, I'm glad that you don't try to turn out a book each year, for surely that pressure affects an author's quality of writing. I consider you to be a gem in the Christian fiction market and am eager to see the next story that God places on your heart. Thank you so much for being here, Meg.
