On Saturday February 11th, Genevieve Graham will be at Chapter, Bayers Lake, Halifax (12:00pm to 1:30 pm) and Chapter, Mic Mac Mall, Dartmouth (2:30 pm to 4:00 pm) signing copies of her debut novel Under the Same Sky.
I met Genevieve in the fall of 2010 while looking for an editor for Mystery Light in Cranberry Cove. It was my first time working with an editor like this, and she made the experience less painful than I’m sure it could have been. She was very professional, returned my manuscript quickly and offered encouragement.
At that time, Genevieve told me about her manuscript being accepted by Penguin. It’s great to see this day has finally arrived for her.
Here’s the blurb snipped from Chapters online:
The year is 1746. A young woman from South Carolina and a Scottish Highlander share an intimacy and devotion beyond their understanding. They have known each other their entire lives. And yet they have never met…
Maggie Johnson has been gifted with “the Sight” ever since she was a child. Her dreams bring her visions of the future and of a presence she knows is real. She calls him Wolf, and has seen him grow alongside her from a careless young boy into a fearsome warrior. And when her life is torn asunder by unspeakable tragedy, he is her only hope.
Andrew MacDonnell is entranced by the vision of a beautiful woman who has always dwelt in his dreams. When war ravages his land and all he has ever known, he leaves the Scottish Highlands on a perilous journey to the New World to find her…
Their quest to find each other across a treacherous wilderness will test the limits of courage and endurance, guided only by their dreams- and by the belief in the true love they share…
Genevieve Graham’s Editing website is called Writing Wildly.
PS: I love the book cover.
