Do you read Kindle e-books on your e-reader, smartphone, iPad or other devices? If so, I *highly* recommend THE VOLUNTEER by Barbara Sissel, and best of all, it's a free download from Amazon on Jan. 20th and 21st.
From my own review of the book:
In the days since this young bride was left at the altar, Livie Saunders has worked hard to put her life back together, steeping herself in the language of flowers and the beauty of the world around her. But her facade has one big crack -- the "red dress nights" in which she falls into the arms of strangers--nights whose consequences are catching up with her just as the painful past comes crashing down. Her errant fiancé, Cotton O'Dell has returned, seeking forgiveness for the unforgivable, redemption in the form of the Ninth Step. But is it too late for either of them?
The Ninth Step is an unforgettable story of loss, forgiveness, and the true cost of redemption, as beautifully-written as it is compelling. Barbara Taylor Sissel's writing is worth savoring. This heart-wrenching, ultimately hopeful story reminded me of the best of Anita Shreve. Since reading the book, I've been recommending it like crazy to anyone who'll listen.
I can easily see this as a great book club selection.
Very highly recommended!
Hope you'll click over to the sight today and give this talented new author and BtO contributor a try!
