No offense to any of the other authors I adore, but give me a Julie Lessman title any day of the week and it's a promise, nay a guarantee that you'll not see hide nor hair of me until that finished (with a groan of despair that I'm finished. ;-)
Know what else I love? The O'Connor family. So not only do I get to read this very last family episode in a drama that wasn't nearly long enough...but...
This is the family that has made Julie famous (Julie, don't you dare dispute me on that fact) and when I learned there would be a PREQUEL to Marcie and Patrick's story I just about danced a jig. And...have you seen the cover reveal?
Julie's own artist hubby put this together and her daughter is on the cover. A family affair? :-)
A Light in the Window: An Irish Christmas Love Story begins in 1895 following a decade of explosive industrial growth and immigration that Mark Twain called America’s “Gilded Age,” when the nation plummets into the worst economic depression at that time.
Marceline O’Connor and her best friend Julie O’Rourke have been selected to assist Sister Mary Frances with the Christmas play fundraiser for the St. Mary’s parish soup kitchen. The play is called A Light in the Window, based on the Irish custom of placing a candle in the window on Christmas Eve to welcome strangers as if welcoming the Holy Family.
Doesn't the thought of another Marcie and Patrick story (two in ONE YEAR) just make your heart sigh???
Please tell me I'm not the only one... :-)
In celebration I'm giving away another one of Julie's titles. I have a copy of A Heart Revealed (where yours truly appeared as a cameo character ;-)
So tell me! Am I the only one this eager for two JL novels in 2012? And maybe if you're a new fan, then do you have another series you're eager to receive the coming novels for?
Also: please note the title I'm giving away is the fifth book in a series of six and it is best to read them all in order. US addresses only please.
I'm eager to chat when I get home from work tonight!! :-D
