There's a little delay because I held out for Sophie Eastlake as the narrator and her schedule was super busy. But she emailed me last week to let me know the book is in production, and I hope it will be available by the end of the month. (I'll announce the official release day for audio on Facebook and in my newsletter, and of course you can always check the Audible website.)
Thanks so much for asking!(less)

Sorry to take so long to reply! I keep forgetting to check my mailbox here. I'm so delighted you're enjoying the Fletchers. My husband's dad was a former career Sgt. Major with the Marines (you can see a lot of him in Tom Fletcher, including the whistle to announce him coming home), so that whole back story is particularly dear to my heart.
Happy reading!

“Sweet Mother in Heaven, please don't let me be dreaming." He raised his hand, stopping Rachel's interruption before she could get it properly started. "Or if this is a dream," he continued, "then don't let me wake up. Amen.”
Virginia Kantra, The Temptation of Sean MacNeill

“Each of us must use the gifts that we have, in the time that we have, in the place that we are. You taught me that. No more is required of us. And no less.”

“If you never asked, you were never disappointed.
If you didn't rely on someone, they could never let you down.
If you never admitted how desperately you wanted something, it didn't hurt so much when it was taken away.”

“We are volcanoes. When we women offer our experience as our truth, as human truth, all the maps change. There are new mountains.”
Ursula K. Le Guin

“E.L. Doctorow said once said that 'Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.' You don't have to see where you're going, you don't have to see your destination or everything you will pass along the way. You just have to see two or three feet ahead of you. This is right up there with the best advice on writing, or life, I have ever heard.”
