Redfearn’s new novel is Moment in Time.

Recently I asked the author about what she is reading. Her reply:
I absolutely loved Amor Towles’s A Gentleman In Moscow, so I was thrilled to discover he had a new novel out, The Lincoln Highway. It’s a coming-of-age story set in the fifties and is told in true Towles’s style, full of rich details and fully realized characters, so well done, each time I pick it up, I lose myself in the pages. And when I put it down, I’m sad to know I’m that much closer to the end and then it will be over.

Before that, I read The All of It by Jeannette Haien. This short, 145-page novella was re-released in 2009 (originally published in 1986) thanks to Ann Patchett because she loved it so much she talked her publisher into republishing it. It was my book club’s choice last month and transported me to Ireland, to a small coastal village that moved slower than time. The book was a literary gem full of stunning descriptions and hidden meanings, and it made me reflect on longing and what it means to be human.

Sometimes as an author you are given the opportunity to read a story before it’s released and asked to give a blurb. I was fortunate enough to be asked to take an early peek to Julianne MacLean’s soon-to-be-released novel, Beyond the Moonlit Sea, which brilliantly intertwines myth and science to create a stunning story full of romance and intrigue that had me on the edge of my seat from the first page to the last. The novel releases in June.
