I love Clopton's Mule Hollow series. These books are fun and silly and full of real people dealing with real issues of faith. In Next Door Daddy, widow Pollyanna McDonald is determined to show the world that she can take care of herself and her 8 year old son. Polly moves to Mule Hollow, not to get a man like most of the women there, but to open a Bed and Breakfast and make a home in the country for her son. What she doesn't bargain for is her neighbor, Nate Talbert. Nate is a widower and recently asked God to do something to bring him back to life... to give him purpose and meaning. A boy looking for a father figure was not what Nate had in mind, must less a pretty young determined widow. But then God's ways are not our ways.
great book, I found myself laughing at the beginning and by then end wishing i could spend more time with these people and enjoying once again a trip to this wonderful town and the amazing people who live there. I can't wait until my next visit to Mule Hollow!
Was There room in Mule Hollow for a Pollyanna?
When rancher Nate Talbert asked for a miracle to change his reclusive life, he wasn't sure he meant Pollyanna McDonald. the city woman, her eight-year-old daredevil and menagerie of unruly pets had moved next door, driving him crazy. But he was surprised to learn how much he and the widow had in common....and how much they were drawn to each other. then, too, Pollyanna's sone was solrely in need of a father figure. But Nate a dad? Pollyanna gave an enthusiastic thumbs-up, but proving it to Nate would take a real miracle!
A really good book I read it in one day. Love the Mule Hollow books
