ABOUT THE BOOK

Boys who never age, giants lost in time, mist that never rises, questions never asked...on the most remote of islands off the coast of Maine, history haunts the present and Vera Gamble wrestles with a past that will not yield. Will she find refuge there, or will her ghosts prevail on...Winter Haven

Eleven years ago, Vera Gamble's brother left their house never to be seen again. Until the day Vera gets a phone call that his body has been found...washed ashore in the tiny island town of Winter Haven, Maine. His only surviving kin, Vera travels north to claim the body...and finds herself tumbling into a tangled mystery. Her brother hasn't aged a day since last she saw him.

Determined to uncover what happened in those lost years, Vera soon discovers there are other secrets lurking in this isolated town. But Winter Haven's murky past now seems bound to come to light as one woman seeks the undeniable and flooding light of truth.

Well, Winter Haven is up on the Sips 'n Cups blog, even though a few hours early. Heading to bed with a bad back.

Hugs, everybody!

I never did get the book, but maybe it just got delayed because I moved last month. I hope it eventually comes because I would like to read it! But I did post about it anyway!

Gretchen said...

Long story short. I was spammed by a blogger profile. Killed my Firefox. Now using Safari, yes I'm a mac user. Blogger acting weird, dunno if it's Safari or blogger. Going out of town, life in a weird rush. Was able to use the HTML to make most of it work in a fairly normal fashion. Review will be posted when I return from out of town!
