Book Spotlight — The Sowing Season

30 Sep

I am so excited to share with you author Katie Powner and her debut novel, The Sowing Season. This book sounds really, really, good, and I cannot wait to get my hands on it! Check out all the info below — you are going to want to get it too! The book doesn’t release until October 13, but you can preorder HERE.


After he’s forced to sell the family farm he’s labored on his whole life, 63-year-old Gerrit Laninga doesn’t know what to do with himself. He sacrificed everything for the land — his time, his health, his family — with nothing to show for it but bitterness, regret, and two grown children who want nothing to do with him.

Fifteen-year-old Rae Walters has growing doubts and fears about The Plan — the detailed blueprint for high school that will help her follow in her lawyer father’s footsteps. She’s always been committed to The Plan, but now that the pressure to succeed is building, what was supposed to unite her family in purpose, may end up tearing it apart.

When their paths cross just as they each need a friend the most, Gerrit’s and Rae’s lives begin to change in unexpected ways. Can they discover together what really matters in life and learn it’s never too late for a second chance?


Katie Powner is an award-winning author who lives in Montana . . . where cows still outnumber people. She is a two-time OCW Cascade Award and ACFW First Impressions Award winner. Katie loves candy, Jesus, and red shoes (not necessarily in that order) and is a mom to the third power: biological, adoptive, and foster. The Sowing Season is Katie’s first book.
