Jan Coffey DEAREST MILLIE, final book in the Pennington Family series is also available today. “Such a beautifully written story that pulled at my heart... A tale of how much the human spirit can take and persevere even with humor.” - Lori D. GoodReads Review


Kate (Feathered Turtle Press) I wasn't particularly impressed by the last book I read by Robin Talley.

I've picked up Empire of Sand though, and I'm only a few chapters in but really liking it so far.

Ahhh, thank you so much!! I'm absolutely in love with this series, and I was wondering when the last book was going to come out! Marion's such an underrated author, but I think his work is pure genius.
