Heroine Interview from A Mom’s New Start by Margaret Daley:

1.  Maggie Sommerfield, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I don’t know if it’s interesting, but the thing I like to do the best and is most interesting to me is gardening. Taking a plot of land and turning it into a beautiful work of art. 

2.  What do you do for fun?

Read and gardening–lately most of my free time, however, has been spent putting a house damaged by the hurricane back to its original condition. 

3.  What do you put off doing because you dread it?

Dusting. That is one chore I hate. Not long after you dust, more settles and you just need to dust again.

4.  What are you afraid of most in life?

Being abandoned again–first my fiance and then my parents. I don’t put myself out there because I don’t want another to walk away from me.

5.  What is the most important thing to you?

My son–he is everything to me.

6.  Do you read books? If so, what is your favorite type of book?

I read romances–love is what makes the world go around. I was fortunate to love one man, even though he was taken from me before we could marry.

7.  If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Not to be afraid to let myself love again.

8.  Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?

Yes, I got a two legged dog (injured in the hurricane) from my cousin, Nathan, a vet. She is amazing and doesn’t let her disability stop her from doing anything.

9. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?

I wouldn’t want to go anywhere because the Lord put me where I am for a reason. I am content for living in the present.



  1. I agree about the dusting. I have always regarded it as rather a pointless, yet necessary, exercise.

    A MOM’S NEW START looks like a great read.


  2. Maggie, you and I sound like we have a lot in common. Would love to read more of your story.

  3. Perseverance through trials always builds our character. God always has something better than we could even imagine for ourselves–can’t wait to see whom God has in store for the heroine in Margaret’s story! Put my name in the drawing, thanks.

  5. Thanks, Amy, Mary and Susan, for visiting the blog.

  6. I enjoyed the interview.

  8. Hi Margaret, i would love to win”A Mom’s New Start,” i think it is awful were Meggie is pregnant and her fiance soldier died. That would be hard. Now she is trying to raise her son when Hurricane Naomi hits.
