Teaser Tuesday: ASHFORD PARK
The 1920s book has a name! It is now officially Ashford Park.
Or, as my little sister likes to put it, “Julian Fellowes wants his title back”.
Goodness only knows, I tried to find other things to call the book. I toyed with deep titles, simple titles, clever titles, long titles. No matter what, all roads led back to Ashford.
As my modern (well, modern-ish; it’s 1999 for her) heroine, Clementine Evans, discovers, her grandmother, Addie, came to Ashford Park as a small child in 1906, after her bohemian parents died in an omnibus accident. Clemmie has to trace her grandmother’s path back to Ashford Park– and to an estate in Kenya with the same name– in order to unravel family secrets that have been successfully kept for the past seventy years.
The key to it all lies in Ashford Park….
Ashford Park will come out in early 2013. I don’t have an exact date yet, but as soon as I do, I’ll let you know.
I’ll be posting more about Ashford, including excerpts, very soon!
Well, I think it’s a good title. And “borrowing” from Julian Fellowes is not necessarily a bad thing… 🙂
This sounds fabulous (love the names Clementine and Addie)! Can’t wait to read it.
If you write it I will READ it!
I need this in my hands right now. I can’t wait!!
Is it early 2013 already? No? Too bad!!!
I really can’t wait to read your new book!! I have a feeling I’m gonna love it!
I love the name Clementine! Thanks for sharing with us, Lauren 🙂
I love the premise! It is my favorite type of book – uncovering hidden family secrets from the past. Can’t wait to read it!
I like your little sister. She seems funny 🙂
Can’t wait to read this! It’s not usually my preferred time period in history, but if it’s by Lauren Willig I’m willing to give it a whirl.
Sounds terrific !
Hooray! Can’t wait 🙂
Yay! So excited.
Cannot wait… 🙂
BTW – I don’t seem to remember if you told us or not, but what nickname did you end up using for Theodore?
Very interesting I cannot wait!
Love love LOVE the title! Simple, interesting and it makes me want to read more – even if I wasn’t already a die-hard fan I’d definately pick up the book if I saw it in a bookshop with that name.
