My newest book, Home to Currahee, now available and the 70th D-Day anniversary



Finally, Home to Currahee is available. The paperback is ready to go at online retailers, and by request at your Christian bookstore. The eBook was taken down because of conversion problems and is still in process, so if that’s your preferred way of reading, check back later this week. I’ll post here when I'm notified that it has been uploaded.


 
Eight years ago when I began the manuscript that eventually became Home to Currahee, I had no idea it’d take so long to see it in print. However, God’s timing is perfect, and though Home to Currahee is contemporary fiction, its first chapter is set on D-Day. It seems now is just the right time for the novel with the 70th anniversary of D-Day approaching on June 6th.

Home to Currahee’s back cover copy:

All June Callaway wants is a simpler life and healing from a tragedy when she moves from Atlanta to the charming town of Toccoa near historic Currahee Mountain. However, her discovery of a mystery-laden treasure with a World War II connection makes her life even more complicated and threatens to waken a fear that would take her back down a road of heartache and grief. Colorful town characters help her along and the mountain itself bestows an unimaginable gift on her, but will she be able to push past her fear and solve the mystery in time? Can she, as the stranger suggested, “do it afraid”?

I'll be posting more about the book's background later in the week. Thank you dear readers and I’d appreciate you letting your friends know about Home to Currahee.
May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us—yes, establish the work of our hands (Psalm 90:17).

Home to Currahee available at:

With the 70th anniversary of D-day approaching this June 6th, anyone who has had a family member who served in WWII might appreciate Home to Currahee's link to that pivotal event in the world's history.

Give My Love to the Chestnut Trees is still available as well, and either of these books would also make wonderful graduation or Mother's Day gifts.
