It’s Release Day for Cries from the Past…
I have a terrible headache, but I’m going to fight it to write this blog post. 🙂 I really like this novella. I guess all authors have their favorites of their own works, and this is one of mine.
Cries from the Past, an Amish gothic romance novella, is being released today from Astraea Press.
Here’s a short excerpt from the novella. Enjoy, and check it out at the Astraea site… if you like a touch of darkness in your romances:
So much for all your ideas. She wondered about his wife, his family, his children. A twinge of jealousy shot through her. What a lucky woman his wife must be. Something goaded her into what she said next, and she wasn’t sure what. “I’m sorry for keeping you. I know you must need to get back to your family, or your work.” Amity looked at her hands, flushing but waiting for his response.
“There’s nothing but work to get back to. My wife is dead.
I’m sure you already know, though.”

Thanks, Courtney. 🙂 I am hoping it is different. Glad you dropped by to enter! ~Lisa
Intriguing! Congrats on the release!!
Goodreads brought me here, but the description of Amish gothic got me to comment! Intriguing to say the least, not two styles I would think would go together. :DBeverly W.bkw33a(at)yahoo(dot)com
Thanks, Meg, and I appreciate your stopping by. 🙂
I know what you mean, Beverly, though I think Picoult's Plain Truth has a touch of the gothic maybe…Thanks for stopping by and entering! 🙂
