Most people send postcards from fun and exciting places they have visited such as Florida, Hawaii, or Australia. In the book entitled Greetings From Nowhere by Barbara O’Connor, you probably wouldn’t find anyone sending a postcard from the Sleepy Time Motel in the Great Smoky Mountains. Even the name sounds dull!
It is a run-down motel in the middle of nowhere, and there has not been a visitor there in almost three months! But something very interesting happens when four families meet under somewhat unusual circumstances. Read this book to find out how sometimes with a little bit of hope, you can find exactly what you need even in the middle of nowhere.
