So here in the southern hemisphere, it’s still winter and today seems to be the coldest day of the year so far. It’s dark and dreary and looks like it might even rain… so why not climb under the blanket and enjoy this awesome read while getting warm?
Blurb: A displaced mother
and daughter embark on a quest for refuge in this absorbing women’s sci-fi
family saga for fans of slow-burn suspense and page-turning domestic drama.
A crushing betrayal.
A transcendent bond. Three thousand miles to the Isle.
My mother loved the
city, and it loved her. Until the Turn. Until leaving became our only hope of
survival. She’s slipping away more each day. I can feel it. The tide threatens
to take me with her, but I’d be lying if I said I’d rather be anywhere
else—with Florence is where I belong.
Now uprooted and on
the run, we have to choose: surrender to a new beginning and leave our delicate
past behind, or salvage the remains and try to find our way back.
Either way, I just
want to go home.
But if home really
is where the heart is, what happens when you lose heart?
Buy it now! Immerse
yourself in Florence and Joanna’s harrowing journey to the Isle.
A former Floridian and Seattleite, R.M. Carpus now writes fantasy and science fiction from Philadelphia, her birthplace and current home base. She is co-founder of Impossible Things Publishing (ITP), a collaborative anthology project, and a student and tutor at Saint Joseph’s University. The aftermath following the tragic loss of her mother led her to return to her Catholic faith, which she today counts as her greatest gift and joy in life, along with her family, friends, and love for storytelling. She speaks a little French, dreams of living in the English countryside, and like most writers, runs on coffee. She’s happiest outdoors—especially in the Pacific Northwest—or cuddled up at home with her animals while reading, writing, or watching classic movies.
So who am I?
Well, I am a mother of 2 beautiful girls, student, wife, reader and writer.
I write various genres, each under a different pen name. A writer's multiple personalities need to be named in order to identify them.
My real name is Leandri Geldenhuys (I know, real dutchman like), with whom I write Children's Lit (Lumin Finds the Lighthouse, 2017). My other Pen name is Lea Cherry which will be used to write the more darker and adult stuff.
I also dabble in Poetry a bit. You can find some of my stuff in the last book of The Dragonian Series (The Journal of Blake Leaf), written by Adrienne Woods.
