Today we welcome author Ginny Hamlin to 3 Questions Wednesday.
(1) What is your favorite book? [Bible excluded]
Ginny: Terms of Endearment by author Larry McMurtry is my favorite novel, which was also turned into a screenplay by the same name. The author makes you believe the fascinating characters really exist. I walked away from the book feeling as though Aurora Greenway was actually off raising her grandchildren.
(2) If you could walk into any book, what literary character would you want to be?
Ginny: Again, my answer is the fabulously woven story of “Terms of Endearment” and I would choose to play the role of Aurora Greenway. If I’d been asked this question in the 80s when I saw the movie, I would have opted to play the role of the daughter, Emma. However, all these years later I’d gladly choose the role of Aurora Greenway; the gap in the character’s age and mine has closed considerably. Wink wink.
(3) If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Ginny: I’d love to visit Italy (specifically, Tuscany) with my husband. We’ve been planning a trip in our minds for years, but intend to take the next step, which is practical; planning, i.e., budgeting. Trust me, when it happens (not if) I’ll be the giddy tourist snapping pics and posting them on Facebook on a daily basis.
Jennifer, thank you for having me on your blog, it’s been my honor and pleasure. I look forward to responding to any questions or comments that your readers post.

Darla Connor is struggling with whether to stay in her troubled marriage or walk away. Maintaining a long distance friendship with an old sweetheart isn’t making the decision easier, especially when that sweetheart, now a famous country music star declares his love for her, even though she is married. Randall Connor is a recovering alcoholic and wants to heal his broken marriage, and as a new believer, he is counting on God to help him. When Darla rejects his ultimatum to sever ties with her old boyfriend, he’s in for the battle of his life. Will Darla follow promises of a better life with her old boyfriend, or will she surrender to God in time to save her marriage?
