Guest Post by Charlene Tess

tessI am delighted to be included in the celebration of the 4th anniversary of A blog is work, and a successful blog is hard work. Congratulations to you, Angela!

To celebrate, I am participating in the June Book Give-Away. I am giving away a Kindle copy of my latest novel. “Our Hearts Remember” explores the relationships in a close-knit family during a time of crisis. (note: to enter leave a comment for Charlene below!)

Patricia Gillespie has a car accident ruled to be her fault. Her five-year-old granddaughter, riding in the back seat, is killed. Patricia must deal with a devastating loss along with the guilt and self-loathing she feels. Patricia’s daughter, Alaina Bickham, must cope with the sorrow of losing her child and the anger she feels toward her mother. Mac Gillespie is caught between the love he has for both his wife and his daughter, and the grief he feels.

tess bookThe story takes the reader on a journey that is sometimes sad, sometimes humorous, and always honest as it explores the resilience of love.
