It’s such a pleasure to find authors whose work you love, and who support other authors. I was fortunate to have one of my favorite authors read an advance reader copy of my novel, In the Vanishing Hour. I am forever grateful to the brilliant Gillian French for her wonderful quote below.
Gillian French is the Edgar Award-nominated author of the upcoming Sugaring Off and The Lies They Tell, along with three other novels. She is the recipient of several awards, including the Maine Literary Award and International Thriller Award for YA Novel. She writes the type of books I love to read—evocative, literary stories with a hint of darkness and a dash of thrilling mystery. Be sure to check out her novels, as you are in for a treat.
Thank you to Gillian for her wonderful review:
“The entwined historical narratives of In the Vanishing Hour unfold with graceful, pensive ease, forming a portrait of coming of age in small town New England, illuminating the struggle for identity independent of place and circumstance. In the process, Sarah Beth Martin weaves two seemingly disparate mysteries into one, exposing just how often we allow our life’s trajectory to be chosen by our darkest secrets. A shimmering, unforgettable journey of truth and self-discovery.”
In the Vanishing Hour is due out on October 19 from Encircle Publications and is available for pre-order on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Learn more about the book via the link in my bio.
