Right. . .
I’m here to tell you it’s not true. I did not love all my children equally. Oh, sure, total it up and they all come out even, but on any given day? I usually loved one of them more. The one who really needed it at that moment. Or the one who really deserved it. Or even the one who just wasn’t giving me a hard time when the other three were living out a secret pact to make life difficult.
Then there are books. To be honest I haven’t always loved a book I’ve turned in. Sometimes the story just didn’t grab me as much as others I had done. Or I had to work so hard to bring it to completion that the only emotion left inside me was gratitude it was finished. Or I sent it off with a nagging feeling I just hadn’t gotten it right.
By the way, some of the books my readers loved best fit into that category. Which is reassuring, to say the least.
Lover’s Knot, the third book in the Shenandoah Album series, was NOT one of those books. From the time the story began to form, I knew I would love writing it. It had everything I like to write about. A troubled marriage. Quilts. Friendship. Community. Best of all a mystery rooted in the past, with fascinating research to be done, my own little mystery to solve.
Lover’s Knot will be re-released next week as a brand new trade paperback. I am so happy that my publisher decided to do this, and that the first three are available in paper again. If you missed it the first time, now you have a second chance and a larger, easier on the eyes edition to enjoy.
As always, I encourage you to shop locally. But if you choose to shop online you can order it for delivery next week at Amazon, B&N, and Books-A-Million. Because it’s a reissue the price at no more than $9.99 is a bargain.
