Best Historical Fiction of 2019: THE SUMMER COUNTRY!

I’m so thrilled to announce that The Summer Country is a semi-finalist in the Best Historical Fiction category of this year’s Goodreads Choice Awards!

Thank you.  Thank you so much to all of you who nominated The Summer Country and put it up there with all the historical fiction heavy hitters.  I couldn’t be more grateful and delighted to see the little Barbados Book (okay, the very long Barbados Book) That Could up there with those others.

Voting is open now for the next round.  Any and all votes for The Summer Country are very much appreciated.

But most of all, I’m just so beyond words that this book, that has been living with me for so very long, and which almost didn’t get written so many times, has garnered so much love and support.  Thank you!!

Oh, and here’s the link for voting:
