"There's nothing to match curling up with a good book

when there's a repair job to be done

around the house."

Young writers...


You'll find Jill on this website...and I first met her on this blog: French Toast Girl...
that's the Book Description
"As a young girl, BJ spent summers in the home of her two grandmothers, making friends there and even experiencing her first romantic longings. Now, accompanied by her five-year-old son, she returns to the quiet Pennsylvania lake town to claim the inheritance left by her grandmother. In doing so, she hopes to piece together her life, which has suddenly fallen apart after her husband walked out on their marriage.Nonna's legacy to her granddaughter proves not to be the Pennsylvania farmhouse but the discovery of an unmailed letter written by Nonna to BJ's own late mother. Stunned by its revelations, BJ finds that here-- among the ghosts of her grandmothers, the memories of her girlhood, and the tatters of her marriage--she must confront her history. With Nonna's notebooks to guide her, she unravels the long-held secrets of the two grandmothers who so deeply influenced her life and her art. But it is the reappearance of Travis, the object of her teenage crush, that forces her to confront unspoken truths and attempt a second chance at love. "
I have not read it yet, but sounds very interesting, relationships between young ones and grand-mothers are...and I must tell you I do love the book-cover, relly dreamy, a gorgeous dress, and the light so soft...it's so important when you decide to buy a book, a nice cover and a good title...
so long live that new writer...

I must admit I do like a good cover...such a shame sometimes though when the book is disappointing yet the artwork was great.

I cannot even begin to tell you how many books I've bought because the cover caught my eye! As good a way as any to browse through a store..... =]
