In Early Birds, a very sweet and lovely story by debut author Janetta Fudge-Messmer, readers will be treated to a fun and funny romp with a group of engaging retirees as they traverse the countryside, with God and Willie Nelson along for the ride. Betsy Stevenson, her workaholic husband Ben, their dog Matilda, and their great friends, Rose and Larry Wilford, make the major decision to downsize their lives and explore the USA. On the way they experience all kinds of shenanigans, as well as moments that will touch a reader's heart. Will the Early Birds be able to continue as friends through all they experience? Or will their grand experiment end in total failure? You'll need to read the book to find out!
I so enjoyed Early Birds. Author Janetta Fudge-Messmer has done an incredible job in creating absolutely endearing characters that her readers will be able to relate to, connect with and truly care about, and continue to think about long after this book is done. This book will make readers laugh and warm their hearts in turn, and will keep them reading from the very first words all the way to the end. The Christian message comes through quite plainly, but it is not overbearing at all. Any reader who enjoys a fun, funny, and sweet work of Christian fiction should absolutely read Early Birds. I highly recommend this book, and hope that the extremely promising author, Janetta Fudge-Messmer, is already hard at work on her next book. If it's anything like Early Birds, it will certainly be worth the read!
