Ta-da. Announcing: A Heartwarming Giveaway! (See how to enter below)
From May 1-10, Melinda Curtis, Liz Flaherty and I are celebrating the release of our April books in print this month, too! I haven’t seen them on the shelves yet but I can’t wait to get my hands on them. Here's mine.
In Lost and Found Family, Emma and Christian Mallory are grieving the tragic loss of their young son. As you might expect, because of this highly emotional subject it wasn’t an easy book to write, but in their close-knit Tennessee town, and with the help of friends and family, these two rekindle the love they once shared, and discover for themselves and their marriage a new kind of “normal.”
The story also features a real carousel with a classic Denzel frame, which has been refurbished and happens to be in Chattanooga, my adopted hometown—lucky me! In the book a carved wooden miniature of a painted pony plus the real-life horse (or, in this case, fictional horse) that inspired it, play a part too.
As you can tell, horses are near and dear to my heart. In my teen years I took riding lessons with a friend. And later on, my husband and I owned a noble chestnut saddlebred by the name of Windsor Castle. This book is dedicated to his memory. Windsor now has his very own brick on the walkway outside of the Saddlebred Museum at the Kentucky Horse Park. It’s a fitting memorial in such a beautiful place with magnificent horses grazing in the pastures all around.
I hope you enjoy Lost and Found Family.
