January 23, 2013 Literary Awards 3

Buy-twelfthThe Twelfth Child Winner of a National League of American Pen Women First Place Award for Published Fiction is now making its début as a FREEBIE. On Thursday, January 24th and Friday, January 25th Kindle owners can download it free   on Amazon.

With 44 reviews and a 4.7 rating, this novel tells a story of trust, love and friendship.

Abigail Anne Lannigan searched for these things all her life, now, when she is at the tail end of her years, she teams up with a free-spirited young woman. A nobody from nowhere, who suddenly moves in across the street. Their unusual friendship comes under suspicion when a million dollars goes missing and a distant relative, claims embezzlement. Abigail knows the truth of what happened but, unfortunately, she’ll never get the chance to tell.

Reminiscent of Fannie Flagg’s “Fried Green Tomatoes” the May-December friendship of these two unforgettable women is sure to settle in the soft spot of your heart.

The Twelfth Child, a novel rich with emotion, humor and tenderness, explores the splintered relationships of a Shenandoah Valley family and their willful daughter’s struggle to survive America’s Great Depression and overcome the past.

    Loved this book! Different genre than my usual, but I couldn’t stop reading! Found myself loving Destiny -though at first I was suspicious.

    Will there be a sequel to explain what happened to the million dollars in bonds? I really, really hope so! This is the first book I have read of yours, but please know I will be ordering everything you have written. This book struck a note with me, as I had a slightly similar relationship with a woman I called “my other mother.” We had a very close friendship for nearly 40 years. People often wondered why, but we loved each other as close as mothers and daughters do, if not more. She had no grandchildren so my three boys were her grand kids.

    Thank you for providing me with such a lovely story. I can’t wait for the next book!
