THE EDGE OF WINTER: GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE EDGE OF WINTER

BY LUANNE RICE

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Neve Halloran and her daughter have shared a fierce love for the austere beauty of Rhode Island’s South County ever since Neve guided Mickey’s first baby steps along the sandy shore. Now, with Mickey a teenager and Neve’s last hope for happiness with her daughter’s loving but unstable father gone, both will struggle to make a new life together amid the windswept landscape that sustains them. Captivated by a fragile wildlife sanctuary, Mickey will move toward womanhood in the company of a lonely boy who shares her instinctive way with the creatures of the coast. And Neve will find herself drawn to a man who has devoted his life to the sanctuary, but who is unable to share the pain of a recent loss—or reconnect with the father who still bears the scars of World War II. As winter gives way to spring, and spring to summer, a secret will emerge that has lain buried in the depths just offshore for decades, a secret that will galvanize the small seaside community. For the waters bear their own vestige of the past—and their ceaseless rhythms may point the way to hope and new beginnings. Lyrical, luminous, and utterly captivating, The Edge of Winter is Luanne Rice at her most penetrating and insightful, in a moving exploration of the bonds that shape us and set us free.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Luanne Rice is the author of twenty-seven novels, most recently The Geometry of Sisters, Last Kiss, Light of the Moon, What Matters Most, The Edge of Winter, Sandcastles, Summer of Roses, Summer’s Child, Silver Bells, and Beach Girls. She lives in New York City and Old Lyme, Connecticut.

Cloud Nine is the first book I read by Luanne Rice. It's been a long time. I think the woman was dying of cancer. She owned a linen shop. I remember something about a long trip on an airplane. I do know Cloud Nine made me look for her other books.

I think I would love to read The Silver Boat. The main character loves the presents from the ocean that she finds on the beach. I chose that one because I lvoe collecting shells, smooth pebbles and other things when I walk on the beach. I miss being near the beach now.

I have read most of her books but I read 5-6 books a weeks so can't remember what any of them is about. 'What Matters Most' is one that the title doesn't sound familiar. I am going to look for that one. Thanks for the chance to win 'The Edge of Winter' ybutler@oppcatv.com
