Hi, readers! We have a real treat in store for you today, a spotlight on a book by Kenneth Sumerford, quite a talented author!     
We wish you lots of success on your inspirational romance novel! 

Let's check out the details, shall we?

Here is the book blurb for Liberty: Romance out of a Clear, Blue Sky, Book 1.   

Liberty Adair is recovering from her broken marriage and even has questions about God, science and her future. She is a Christian who unexpectedly meets a college professor who is good-looking, available but an atheist. Sometimes opposites attract. They are worlds apart but both need love and have disturbing questions about science, God and their future romantic relationships. Dr. Ernest Siegfried is successful until he has a heart attack at age 39. Liberty was divorced from her preacher husband and now wonders if her life has meaning, or is her life without purpose and direction? Liberty has some past hurts from her failed marriage and longs for a good marriage and children. 

Ernest believes that modern science has replaced beliefs in God. Liberty is researching evolution, intelligent design and questions about the Creator to answer some burning doubts. At age 28, can she be sure of what is real and what are outdated religious beliefs? 

How does God interface with humans? Does DNA prove intelligent design by the Creator? Did God create mankind in His image, or did humans create gods and goddesses in their image?

Liberty and Ernest struggle to find the answers by using science, the Bible, probabilities and logic. Together they embark on a journey to discover the truth about their rocky future together, the evolution of life, intelligent design, and mysteries of the Divine.  

This book is a unique blend of romance, science, religion and philosophy.

Excerpt from chapter 1

The frigid, wet November wind encouraged her to seek shelter in the warmth of stacks of books. She was reading a book in the university’s library in North Texas and glancing at the men near her. Loneliness followed her like freezing rain from her home to the doors of the library, but had to leave when she gazed at the books and the individuals reading the volumes.
The professor slowed his pace. His eyes were caught by the sunlight reflecting off her blonde hair. Her face was like a Miss Texas winner.  Her shoulders were straight and her blouse concealed her sculptured chest. A blue skirt rode about two inches above her knees and a brown cotton jacket hung from her shoulders.
“Are you a teacher or student in science?” He stopped.
“No, I’m just reading a book on intelligent design and evolution,” she replied on seeing the professor and then buried her head back into the book. 
“Oh, who wrote it?”
She smiled and looked up. “A scientist named Stephen Meyer.”
“I don’t recognize the name.”  He raised his eyebrows and displayed a condescending smile.
Her expression hardened.  “Dr. Meyer has done some excellent work in science and wrote this book explaining how God used intelligent design to create the universe and develop life on Earth.”
He laughed.  “So you’re telling me that God designed a physical universe with galaxies, stars and a planet we call Earth?  Sorry, but I’m an atheist and do not believe in all that nonsense.”
She hadn’t taken a good look at who had been speaking with her, but his statement made her take a closer look at him.  She raised her voice, “Nonsense?  Do you know anything about the human body and DNA, or are you one of those atheists who—“   
She didn’t finish the sentence as her eyes grasped the image of a well-dressed, rather handsome man, about six feet tall, with dark-brown hair and a short beard.

What people are saying about Liberty:



"For those who enjoy a good love story but want to learn about controversial issues, this is for you. The author teaches through storytelling. He has taken the time to research many issues from intelligent design, gun-control, government such as 'big brother' and more that our culture is constantly discussing. He brings in all world views and the characters debate in a relationship. I recommend this not only as a great book to snuggle up with but to gain an overview of current controversial issues laid out in an understandable form." - DK, Amazon


"Interesting read! Great read, the author has a way of intertwining romance with intelligent design! I am looking forward to reading Volume 2!" - Angie Miller, Amazon


"A very enjoyable work. In particular, I was struck by the connections the author made between pain and knowledge. How much of our objections to God are based on pain – his allowance of bad things to happen? When life goes a different direction that what we planned, do we hide our anger or disappointment in self-assured knowledge? Can our relational confusions ever correlate to our intellectual beliefs?
At the same time, even if you’re not sold on the style of the book, the story still raises interesting conversations concerning creation, evolution, and the arithmetic of it all – a good introduction for those not particularly attracted to a dry science-only book.
" - Katherine Siler, Amazon


Hmm...what an intriguing book!
