As those of you who are regular visitors to this page know, I’ve been raving (in a good way!) about Beatriz Williams’ Overseas for quite some time. I’m not usually a fan of time travel, but I make a few major exceptions: Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander, Susanna Kearsley’s The Rose Garden, and Beatriz Williams’ Overseas.
Amiens, France, 1916: Captain Julian Ashford, a British officer in the trenches of the Western Front, is waylaid in the town square by Kate, a beautiful young American. Julian’s never seen her before, but she has information about the reconnaissance mission he’s about to embark on. Who is she, and why did she track him down in Amiens?
New York, 2007: A young Wall Street analyst, Kate Wilson learned to rely on logic and cynicism. So why does she fall so desperately in love with Julian Laurence, a handsome British billionaire with a mysterious past?
What she doesn’t know is that he has been waiting for her… the enchanting woman who emerged from the shadows of the Great War to save his life.
The book doesn’t officially come out until May 10th, but, because Beatriz is a hugely lovely person, she has offered us two copies, not of the ARC, but of the actual, finished book– two weeks before anyone else gets their hands on them.
See? I told you she was lovely.
I’m going to give away one book today and another next Wednesday, when Beatriz is going to come over to the site for a Q&A. (So if you have any questions you’d like to ask her, let me know!)
For an early copy of Overseas, here’s your question:
If you could visit any place in any time period, where and when would it be?
One person will be chosen at random from among those who comment. The winner will be announced tomorrow.
