Nancy Veldman is our multi-talented author of the day – she paints, writes and plays the piano! When she’s not busy creating something beautiful, she is busy with the beautiful things at the Magnolia House, which she owns, in Destin, Florida. How does she do it all? I hope someday she writes about that to let us know :) Nancy is giving away a copy of Old Man Rivers and one of her piano cds as well, (enter via rafflecopter below!) and today she is a guest poster on Dandilyon Fluff:
About Old Man Rivers: Life has a way of taking a wicked turn and we are left to flounder, wondering what in the world caused it. Geoffrey Rivers was having a normal day on the railroad when a phone call snatched normal out of his life. His whole world, including the love of his life, was taken from him in what seemed like a watchmaker’s second in time.
Flowing with suspense and romance, Rivers relates his story to us in a raspy shaky voice of a man turning one hundred years old looking back on what felt like an atomic bomb going off in his oh-so-normal world. His quiet boring life was doing just fine until murder walked through the door as an uninvited guest.
Stepping into his shoes you feel the incredible strength of a man who was left to sort out a crime with a lawyer who dared to drive a truck through a lie, and two investigators who had the gift of snatching information right out of thin air. As the dust comes off the pages of his life, you see a man who was strong become broken and vulnerable. War was declared and Rivers had to suit up or be shot down. Oddly it was the gun that became the albatross around his neck.
But romance has a way of sneaking in when we least expect it. And nothing brings life back into a wrinkled suit better than a beautiful woman. This is no ordinary story, and Rivers is no ordinary man. And his honesty and realness will flat out make you believe in humanity again.
