About this author

I have been enamored with historical fiction since I was old enough to sit still for bedtime readings of the Laura Ingalls Wilder books. Now, I write stories of my own (and am much better at sitting still). I am the author of LETTERS FROM SKYE, a novel of love, family, and the letters holding both together.

I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
“I gave up practically the whole world for you,” I tell him, walking through the front door of my own love story. “The sun, stars, ocean, trees, everything, I gave it all up for you.”

I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
“In a flash, we're through the door, across the street and into the woods, running for no reason and laughing for no reason and totally out of breath and out of our minds when Brian catches me by my shirt, whips me around, and with one strong hand flat against my chest, he pushes me against a tree and kisses me so hard I go blind.”

This was a read-in-one-gulp book, a stay-up-far-too-late book, a forget-to-take-a-breath book. I read with a hand pressed to my heart at some parts, with unabashed tears at others. Sometimes (often) both. A beautiful novel of first love so raw and br ...more

Topics Mentioning This Author

“He saw the delicate blades of grass which the bodies of his comrades had fertilized; he saw the little shoots on the shell-shocked trees. He saw the smoke-puffs of shrapnel being blown about by light breezes. He saw birds making love in the wire that a short while before had been ringing with flying metal. He heard the pleasant sounds of larks up there, near the zenith of the trajectories. He smiled a little. There was something profoundly saddening about it. It all seemed so fragile and so absurd.”
Humphrey Cobb, Paths of Glory
tags: war, wwi

“Perhaps there is some secret sort of homing instinct in books that brings them to their perfect readers. How delightful if that were true.”
Mary Ann Shaffer, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

“It's like being in love, discovering your best friend.”
Elizabeth Wein, Code Name Verity

“Incredible what slender threads you begin to hang your hopes on.”
Elizabeth Wein, Code Name Verity

“That spot on the road was the place where he had ceased to be a boy.”
