Giveaway - Off Season - Anne Rivers Siddons


Thanks to the generosity of The Hachette Book Group I have five copies of Anne Rivers Siddons' book Off Season to giveaway.

(Don't you just want to settle into that chair with a book?!)

From the publisher:

"Acclaimed novelist Anne Rivers Siddons's new novel is a stunning tale of love and loss.For as long as she can remember, they were Cam and Lilly--happily married, totally in love with each other, parents of a beautiful family, and partners in life. Then, after decades of marriage, it ended as every great love story does...in loss. After Cam's death, Lilly takes a lone road trip to her and Cam's favorite spot on the remote coast of Maine, the place where they fell in love over and over again, where their ghosts still dance. There, she looks hard to her past--to a first love that ended in tragedy; to falling in love with Cam; to a marriage filled with exuberance, sheer life, and safety-- to try to figure out her future.It is a journey begun with tender memories and culminating in a revelation that will make Lilly re-evaluate everything she thought was true about her husband and her marriage."

Lots of ways to check out this book before entering......

No, I've never read her work, so I really appreciate the giveaway!

Rebecca Cox said...

Anne Rivers Siddons and I are both Auburn Grads, WAR EAGLE!! and are close in age so I have read all her books except this one. I was very surprised at how many people said they had never heard of her. She is one of the most famous Southern authors and very well known down here in the sunny south. Her books are great Chick Lit, although I am not sure whether she would be pleased with that genre selection.

I am a follower and would love to win this book.
