OUTRUNNING JOSEPHINE FINCH

Once upon a time, a grandmother told a lie…

Sixty-four years have passed since Emmy lost her true love, but the curse still echoes through every second, every breath, and every heartbeat. Emmy is tired of running, and she wants to set her descendants—Jenny, Miranda, and Anlee—free. 

With the help of a “wish listener” named Adam, all four generations of troubled women will come together for two weeks in a cabin at Angel’s Cove. It’s their last chance to face down the past and put an end to the dark secret that has haunted Emmy for a lifetime.

But Angel’s Cove is not just a mountain vacation resort, and Emmy’s got a lot to fix in just a short time. If she gets her wish, her bloodline will finally know true love as real as what Emmy lost so long ago–if old habits don’t destroy it first.

“The author engaged all my senses on every page as she swept me away to the Blue Ridge Mountains. I laughed and cried right along with the characters during the many unexpected twists and turns. A perfect book club selection with so much to talk about–a gripping, sweet, satisfying read that I highly recommend.”

 

“So many of the characters made me think of women I know and the relationships we have with each other. Very well done first book–this is an author to watch.”

Author note:  I had the rare opportunity to return to the South for a family get-together. We all met at a cabin for Thanksgiving dinner. It blessed me to see them, some I had not seen since I was a kid. The richness of the sweet southern voices, the story telling, the playfulness, and my aunt (the oldest member of the family still living at that time) telling us stories of other loved ones who had long since passed. I thought, how nice it would be to bring a family of women together, all generations, and have them interact this way. If I could see my own grandmother one more time, I’d want to see her here, just like this. Experiencing the Southern heritage again made me feel connected with all the generations of women, some living some not, that I miss so much.
