Fun news to share! Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling novelist (and you may have seen her recent novel-turned-film, "My Sisters Keeper" starring Cameron Diaz) read The Violets of March and shared this beautiful endorsement for my debut novel: "Mix a love story, history, and a mystery and what takes root? THE VIOLETS OF MARCH, a novel that reminds us how the past comes back to haunt us, and packs a few great surprises for the reader along the way. " —Jodi Picoult, author of Sing You Home & House Rules I think I'll have a smile on my face for the rest of the year about this. An enormous thanks to Jodi for taking the time out of her busy schedule to read!
