Sharon Hart-Green's debut novel COME BACK FOR ME is a gripping story of trauma, loss, and the redemptive power of love set in the aftermath of World War II.

The novel draws on some of their experiences, but not on any one individual story. (less)

Stacy Happy Holidays Sharon!!!!!!!!!


Sharon Hart-Green Nice to connect! I was born and raised in Toronto, but moved to Boston for several years to attend grad school. But I'm back now and enjoying being in the city where I was raised.
Do you live in the UK? I was in London and Aberdeen recently and had a grand time!
