Taking advantage of her newfound “vacation time,” Mayla flees to her grandmother’s house in Florida. But one by one, her problems follow … literally. In this touching sequel to Just As I Am, quirky Mayla Strong comes face-to-iace with the responsibilities and joys of friends and family. As she tries to help her loved ones, Mayla begins to realize that God has all the answers — the trick is letting go long enough for Him to prove it.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Virginia Smith is an award-winning author of humorous novels, a speaker, and an avid scuba diver. She left her twenty-year career as a corporate director in the summer of 2005 to launch her career as a writer. Since that time she has received contracts for ten inspirational novels. She writes in two genres: contemporary fiction and mysteries. Sincerely, Mayla is her fifth release, following Just As I Am, Murder by Mushroom, Bluegrass Peril and Stuck in the Middle.
Sincerely, Mayla is the long-awaited sequel to Ginny’s debut novel. Of her new book, Ginny says,
“My quirky heroine wormed her way into people’s hearts in Just As I Am, and they demanded more. I’m excited to give Mayla center stage again, and thrilled to know that readers love her as much as I do.”
In March of 2008, she was honored to be named Writer of the Year at Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference, an award selected by the conference’s 72 faculty and staff members representing a cross section of the Christian publishing industry.
When she isn’t writing or speaking, Ginny and her husband, Ted, enjoy exploring the extremes of nature – snow skiing in the Wasatch Mountains near Salt Lake City, motorcycle riding on the curvy roads in central Kentucky, and scuba diving in the warm waters of Mexico and the Caribbean.
Virginia Smith has done it again. Her newest book, Sincerely, Mayla, is a sequel to Just As I Am and continues the story of Mayla Strong, not your average run-of-the-mill new Christian. And the sequel is just as compelling and convicting as the original!
