A NEW
HISTORICAL
ROMANCE

COMING
SPRING 2019
from

With Kisses from Cécile

by
Anne Armistead
and Jan Agnello


A heartbroken Maggie travels to Paris to visit the grave of her great-grandmother’s French pen pal Cécile and uncovers 100-year-old secrets that give her courage to rebuild her own life.

NOW
Maggie Ruth Mitchell’s failed attempt at reconciliation with her unfaithful husband has left her more confused than ever—and with a consequence that will change her life forever. Heartbroken, Maggie travels to Paris to visit the grave of Cécile, the French pen pal of her great-grandmother Ruth. Reading Cécile's letters and learning about Ruth’s past gives Maggie not only an understanding of the strength and courage of the women in her family—all sharing the name Ruth—but also allows Maggie to find her way forward.

THEN    
In the year 1919 following World War 1, two young girls, Ruth and Cécile, find each other through a Pen Pal program between American and French students. In their letters they share their dreams and bare their heartaches. A tragic death of a loved one has torn Ruth’s family apart, leaving her with a dark secret to hide. Cécile, having survived the bombs that devastated Paris, is battling against consumption. Ruth draws courage from her pen pal’s inspiring letters, each signed With Kisses from Cécile ,
to face what fate brings.

WHAT'S ON MY NIGHTSTAND?


So many books, so little time! <sigh>

On my kindle now, I'm reading
Carrie Callaghan 's fantastic historical fiction
A LIGHT OF HER OWN.
If you, like me, adored Tracy Chevalier’s Girl with a Pearl Earring,
then you will love Carrie's book!
The reviews have been stunning, such as this one:

"A Light of Her Own, as a portrait of two brave and ambitious Dutch women painters, and a glimpse into17th century life in Holland, is recommended to all fans of historical fiction." 
― New York Journal of Books

Visit Carrie's website to learn about her offers for book clubs!


I'm also reading Debbie Macomber's ANY DREAM WILL DO I love second chance stories), Heather Graham's WICKED DEEDS (I love her Krewe of Hunters books!), and just finished the last chapter of Jennifer Robson's AFTER THE WAR IS OVER (I am totally stuck on WW1 stories right now!).

And, that's my well-worn, dog-eared copy of SPOON RIVER ANTHOLOGY, which I find a completely fascinating American classic from 1915 that fits into my American Lit syllabus for my students when we return for 2nd semester. If you love verse novels, you should give this one a read. Captivating.

An aside about my WW1 fascination - I saw the documentary THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD and if you can see it, I recommend it. Heartbreaking. Amazing.

PS- the Christmas photo on top of my books is my favorite from years past of my two daughters at ages 3 and 5- another precious item that survived our housefire!

to let me know what you're reading!
