Congratulations to Joanne Reinbold for winning this giveaway! Watch for my back-to-school giveaway!
In honor of my birthday, I am sponsoring the first ever WroteTrips Book Giveaway. It is open to residents of the U.S. only. Sorry, I hope to be able to include my international readers soon.
I have an advance reader copy of the yet-to-be published novel, “The Last Summer at Chelsea Beach,” by best-selling author Pam Jenoff. Jenoff is the author of sensitive, thoughtful novels, including the international bestseller “The Kommandant’s Girl,” which earned her a Quill Award nomination. Known for her emotional story lines and powerful depictions of hardship and triumph, Jenoff is a book club and fan favorite.
Set in 1942, “The Last Summer at Chelsea Beach” features young Adelia Monteforte, who escaped Fascist Italy and traveled to America. Once there, while sheltered in the seaside retreat of her aunt and uncle, she befriends and begins a romance with a vacationing neighbor boy. Family tragedies, World War II, grief and heartache impact the lives of the young couple in long-lasting ways, but there comes a time when the past must be resolved.
This ARC was given to me by my local bookstore, The Hockessin Book Shelf. I’ll have pictures of them up soon.
To enter this contest, like this post and comment on either the WroteTrips blog or Facebook page. A random name will be selected from all entrants, and I will announce the winner on the WroteTrips Facebook page. I will request the winner private message me their mailing address.
Entries will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. on July 31, 2015.
