The cross-country all female book tour, The FictionKNITstas, will be making a stop at our store on Monday, June 3 at 6:00pm. The three authors who will be here signing and chatting about their books are:
Faith Johnston, author of The Only Man in the World
“Heather York is trying to find balance in her life. Sure, her son Jeff is every parent’s dream, but Winn, headstrong and independent, makes being a single mom a real struggle. When a guilty conscience calls Heather to the side of her dying uncle, wheels are set in motion that will change her life forever. The Only Man in the World is an understated story of what if means to be a woman and how to live a life of integrity and grace amid the changing fortunes of love.”
Stella Harvey, author of Nicolai’s Daughters
“Compelled to fulfill her father’s dying wish to find the half-sister he kept from her, Alexia arrives in her father’s village of Diakofto on the edge of the Peloponnese. There she discovers a culture she knows nothing about, a country in financial crisis and an extended family with too many secrets.
Told in the alternating voices of Alexia and Nicolai, who each return to Greece to mourn a loss and find solace, Nicolai’s Daughters uncovers the secret shame that festers in a family, refusing to heal until the truth is revealed.”
Sheila Fischman, translator of Christine Eddie’s The Douglas Notebooks
“On the same fateful day, two adolescents escape destinies that would scar them for the rest of their lives. Romain, awkward and contemplative, resolves to abandon a lineage of wealth. Elena, resourceful and single-minded, flees a home of blood and thunder.
From the initial meeting of these two wounded souls, Christine Eddie weaves a fable for all times.”
The event will be hosted by local author Mary Hagey, the author of Castles in the Air.
We look forward to seeing you all come out on Monday evening for this great event!
