Life is a festival
Readers might see glimpses of Abbeville in a new book by a Georgia woman.
Henry begins his article telling the readers of Abbeville “A Georgia woman with Abbeville connections has written a book called “Love Never Ends, which she hopes will be the first segment of a trilogy.”
Actually, the book IS a series, and while the ORIGINAL plan was 3, before Larson jumped into it, now it seems that two other characters from “Love…” may have to have their own story. Doug Lawson, the PI that works for Larson also appears at the beginning of No Strings, so I think he may have to have his own book after the siblings’ stories. Also, there’s a writer in “Love…” named Richard Andrews that may have to have a novel of his own later on too. He’s just really endearing himself to me.
But I digress.
Mr Green referenced my book jacket blurb where my personal story is told. “Proud mother of three as well as a ‘proud grand-mother’, who attended the University of Massachusetts where she studied Journalism and Comparative Literature.
He goes on to say, “Robin did not grow up in Abbeville….(but) actually grew up in Newburyport, a town in Massachusetts about 45 minutes north of Boston, but (as she indicated in the acknowledgements) she visited Abbeville often, and it seemed as though whenever she visited something “exciting” was happening.”
My favorite part of the article was the ending, where Mr Green really captured the essence of why there in fact IS a “Festival Series”
“Her fictional family in “Love..”enjoys talking about the past, doning costumes of yesteryear. Without giving away too much of the plot, we can say that landmarks in Abbeville are mentioned throughout the book. “Coming home”, with all of it’s joys is a big theme of it. The second book in the four part series she expects to come out next year, around the time of the Spring Festival.”
I am happy that he took so much time to write such a wonderful article, spreading the news about my “baby” to people that would love to hear about it.
This book is the first of many, and while I don’t expect it to be a runaway best – seller, I would like to see it get more than just local recognition.
Please help spread the news about this novel.
Thank you so much for reading.
