Violette Between by Alison Strobel

It's that time of the week! Time to do a blog tour! This week's tour is Violette Between.


Between Here and the PAST,

THERE LIES A PLACE...

a place of longing for what has been rather than hoping for what could be!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Alison Strobel graduated with a degree in elementary education, and in the summer of 2000 she moved from Chicago to southern California where she taught elementary school for three years. It was in Orange County that she met her husband, Daniel Morrow, and the story developed for her first novel, Worlds Collide.


Violette Between is a poinant story of a true artist. When the love of Violette's life, Saul suddenly died, she died too. Then she meets Christian, who also is morning the loss of a loved one.

As Violette and Christian begin to feel something that they both thought was impossible. Tragedy strikes again. Christian finds Violette on the floor of his waiting room, that she had been painting to look like a New York rooftop restaurant.

As Christian holds a vigil at her bedside, begging her to come back to him, Violette is in a coma, traveling to a place where she meets her beloved Saul. And she finds that she may not want to come back!

What would it be like to choose a place between the past and the present?



Violette Between is a powerful character study of a woman finally relinquishing the past to move on, only to be thrust into the quandry of reliving that life and needing to make a choice.

For Christians, this will definitely make you think about heaven and the consequences of eternal life.

"Delving into the underside of complicated relationships, Alison Strobel takes readers to unexpected places, but doesn't hesitate to deliver redemptiom when needed."
---Melody Carlson, author of Finding Alice

I've posted, posted the review on the myspace, and am of course bulletining (is that a word? I think not) from the myspace as well.

I also posted on Amazon, which will show up in a few days, and will be stealing people's reviews for the myspace blog!

My review was also printed in Title Trakk.com.

I posted very early this morning. Happened to be up past midnight, so I went ahead and set it up.

Alison Strobel Morrow said...

Well, I finally posted my blogs. Turns out I have, like, five blogs. How did this happen? Anyway, I'm having trouble claiming my Amazon blog on Technorati. Anyone have any advice?

Oh, and thank you everyone--I'll drop by all your blogs and post eventually, but I'll take this opportunity to say thank you, too. Y'all rock! :)

Grabbed a few more reviews and the interview for the myspace. Thanks for the spelling correction comments; that name "Violette" has been the bane of my existence this week!

Congrats on being #1, Alison.

I've posted all three days. The same last week for Ginger G. Obviously, the repeated posts are what does the trick.

Bonnie Calhoun said...

Brandilyn is so right!

I also post the links each of the three days and give an update as to where the campaign is. Each and every posted link to the book gives us anouther link on Technorati!

Right now Violette Between has 74 links. The closest next book is 30 links lower!

Everyone in the CFBA is an active part of this success. You all are to be congratulated for this awesome showing...The CFBA rocks...and rules!

Praise the Lord. To God be the glory!

Still learning how this all works, but you're posted. I got you up a day late, but you're there. God bless the works of your hands.
