Just a quick note to let you know that if you haven’t purchased a copy of my historical romance The Whispers of Angels, it’s now on sale for only $2.99! You can see it here.
Also, it should only be a couple more weeks before the book is available in paperback! I know there are some diehards out there like me who prefer to hold bound paper in their hands. I’ll keep you posted on the release date.

After being shunned by society for most of his childhood, Raymond Foss has learned to let ridicule roll off his back. Abandoned by his father and despised by his step-father, he does his best to run the farm and ensure his family can survive on what little they have. All that matters to him is helping his mother raise his siblings to be responsible and considerate.
Eliza Potter’s life has been entirely opposite of Raymond’s. Both her parents doted on her and her sister, providing a loving home where they could flourish. Heartache and misfortune are troubles she knows very little about. Yet despite her good upbringing, she never became acquainted with her closest neighbors, the ill-fated Foss family.
When Raymond’s mother dies and he’s left to care for his four small siblings on his own, Eliza and her parents step in to help. Preferring to hide away on the family farm, Raymond struggles with reaching out to others. Eliza soon learns there’s much more to the odd neighbor boy who has been avoiding her.
Just when the young couple comes to an understanding, Raymond’s stepfather returns from his travels. As events unfold, Raymond and Eliza realize just how complicated life can be and how much a simple mistake can affect their future.
When life becomes increasingly difficult, what will they hold on to? And what will they let go?
