About the Book

Born and raised on a sheep ranch in Colorado, Murleen Goodrich was immersed in a lackluster world—until she met Dale. From that point on, Murleen lived an adventurous existence buoyed by unconditional love and laughter.

In a collection of homespun stories, Murleen transports others back in time as she reveals a glimpse into the colorful, faith-filled life she shared with her husband that led her from a college library to a rain-soaked camp to flower-carpeted mountainsides and to a dusty road with the windows rolled down and a dog hanging out the back of her car. Included are amusing tales from her encounters with a whimsical character on a mountain road and a stoic farmer and his cows as well as touching stories that describe what it was like to watch her children leave the nest and to bid farewell to a big yellow cat with a white bib and socks.

Pieces of April shares charming vignettes from one woman’s journey through life as she embraces adventure, God’s grace, and all the colors of the rainbow with her one true love.
