PATTI LACY & "AN IRISHWOMAN'S TALE"
I got the chance to meet a wonderful lady at ACFW. She is bright, pretty and like a breath of fresh air when she enters the room. She breezes about with a trademark beautiful green scarf that makes you think immediately of Ireland. I believe there is a reason for that. Her name is Patti Lacy and her first novel released last month and it is called, "An Irishwoman's Tale".
Patti has taken women's fiction to an amazing place. This story takes us across an ocean, to a place that is painful to go, but a relief to reach. It brings us to a friendship sown of heartache and reaped in shared tears. I hurt for Mary as she would inch closer to opening up to her new friend Sally and then ached as she would share her past and open raw wounds. Patti has a unique tale to tell and a beautiful style with which to tell it. If you like women's fiction then this book is a much have for your personal library. She will transport you to places you wish you were (like Ireland) and take you back to places you wish you had never been (like being an unwanted, unloved child) and when you are done, you will take a deep breath and wish you had Sally's story to pick up and start reading so you wouldn't have to say good-bye to the characters you have just gotten to know.
I will highlight "An Irishwoman's Tale" more at the end of the month, but I'm going to start a giveaway for a copy of this book now. So leave a comment telling me what about Ireland intrigues you or why you might want to visit there someday (and of course your email address) and I will enter you in the drawing!
