Emily Sue Harvey’s first novel, Song of Renewal, was praised by New York Times bestselling author Jill Marie Landis as “an uplifting, heartwarming story,” by bestselling author Kay Allenbaugh as a work that will “linger in the memory long after readers put it aside,” and by Coffee Time Romance as “a must-read book for anyone doing a little soul searching.” New York Times bestselling author Steve Berry said, “It captures your attention, and whets your appetite for more,” while Peeking between the Pages called it “quite simply a beautiful book.”
Now, in FLAVORS, this master storyteller of the human heart sweeps us along with twelve-year-old Sadie Ann Melton as she enters a life-altering season. The summer of 1950 will change everything for her. For in that summer, she will embark on an odyssey at once heartbreakingly tender and crushingly brutal. At times, she will experience more darkness than she has ever witnessed before. At others, she will thrill to lightness and joy she never imagined. By summer’s end, the Melton women in Sadie’s journey – loving her, coaxing her, and commanding her – will help shape her into the woman she becomes. And they will expose Sadie to all of the flavors of life as she savors the world that she brings into being.
Filled with charm, wisdom, and the smorgasbord of emotions that comes with the first steps into adulthood, FLAVORS once again proves Emily Sue Harvey’s unique ability to touch our souls with her unforgettable stories.
“I loved everything about this book! This is just an all around excellent book that is sure to bring memories back from times when life was a lot more simple.”

“Emily Sue Harvey has a beautiful way with words…. Flavors will transport you to another time and place and you’ll lose yourself in the beauty of it. FLAVORS will make you laugh at times and cry at others but if you do read it, I don’t think you’ll ever forget it.”
– Peeking Between the Pages
“I highly recommend this book. It’s a charming, sweet story and you’re sure to love Sadie! It’s a short, quick read that is a real delight. You’ll live through this pivotal summer along with Sadie and perhaps remember some of your own as well. Ms Harvey’s writing is beautiful and paints a wonderful visual image that makes you feel as if you’re there.”
