UNDER THIS SAME SKY
by Cynthia Roemer


Cynthia Roemer is an award-winning inspirational
Cynthia Roemer
writer with a heart for scattering seeds of hope into the lives of readers. Raised in the cornfields of rural Illinois, Cynthia enjoys spinning tales set in the backdrop of the 1800s prairie. She writes from her family farm in central Illinois where she resides with her husband and their two college-aged sons. Under This Same Sky is her debut novel.



Welcome, Cynthia. If you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus) who would it be? Why? 
Hmm. That’s a toughy. I would say it’s a toss-up between the Apostle John (to get a glimpse at his view of Heaven) and Abraham Lincoln (he was such a simple man, but had such wisdom).

Please describe yourself with three words. 
Christian, Loyal, Introvert

What do you enjoy most about writing? 
Creating new characters. I love developing their personalities and getting to know them.

What can your readers expect from you next? 
My next book will be Book Two in my Prairie Sky Series entitled: Under Prairie Skies. It’s set to release in late spring or early summer, 2018. It’s the story of Becky’s cousin Charlotte, a spoiled red-head who meets her match in the handsome, elusive stranger, Chad Avery. I’m excited to delve deeper into their story in the coming months.

Please tell us a little about your novel, Under This Same Sky (Book One, Prairie Sky Series).
 ~ She thought she’d lost everything ~ Instead she found what she needed most. ~
Illinois ~ 1854
Becky Hollister wants nothing more than to live out her days on the prairie, building a life for herself alongside her future husband. But when a tornado rips through her parents’ farm, killing her mother and sister, she must leave the only home she’s ever known and the man she’s begun to love to accompany her injured father to St. Louis.

Catapulted into a world of unknowns, Becky finds solace in corresponding with Matthew Brody, the handsome pastor back home. But when word comes that he is all but engaged to someone else, she must call upon her faith to decipher her future.
