Full Steam Ahead!

I have super excit­ing news. As I men­tioned in a pre­vi­ous post, the new D&M (under the wing of Har­bour Pub­lish­ing) will be blow­ing life into my lat­est book. And… (drum­roll!)… We have a Cana­dian pub­li­ca­tion date! My fifth novel, The Widow Tree, will be hit­ting shelves on Sep­tem­ber 7th, 2013. The sched­ule will be crazy hec­tic, but I am so delighted. I can­not wait to share the story of Gitta and Dor­ján – two char­ac­ters that have given me insom­nia, made me rant and rave and weep, and finally, offered me a moment of pro­found hope­ful­ness. The root of this novel is based on a true story.

Please send me all your pos­i­tive energy as The Widow Tree gets shined, plucked, primped, and ready for the world.

Here is my attempt at a blurb:

Fall, 1953, three teenagers find a clutch of long-lost Roman coins while clear­ing veg­eta­bles from a gov­ern­ment field. The deci­sion to keep the coins instead of turn­ing them over soon turns dis­as­trous when one of them dis­ap­pears. The remain­ing two are left to ques­tion every­thing they believed to be true, while the mother of the miss­ing boy slowly unrav­els. This is a story of fatal plans and silent betray­als in a tightly knit vil­lage just north of Bel­grade. Here the post­war air is simul­ta­ne­ously flushed with hope, weighted with sus­pi­cion, and rife with orphaned words no one wants to claim.
