Huh? ... Booking Through Thursday, 1/24/08

What’s your favorite book that nobody else has heard of? You know, not Little Women or Huckleberry Finn, not the latest best-seller . . . whether they’ve read them or not, everybody “knows” those books. I’m talking about the best book that, when you tell people that you love it, they go, “Huh? Never heard of it?”

I don't have one of those. I guess that doesn't really amaze me only because my reading consists mainly top and mid levels authors in some of the most popular genres. Tons of popular fiction. I'd love to find one of those gems and hopefully one day I'll come across one. I'm usually the one going "Huh? Never heard of it?"

Dear The Printed Page editor,

I am commenting today to see if you might be interested in receiving a complimentary review copy of Kristin Hannah's upcoming novel, FIREFLY LANE.

Best friendships are one of life’s great rewards. These friendships celebrate triumphs and provide support in times of adversity. Tully Hart and Kate Mularkey, the main characters in New York Times bestselling author Kristin Hannah’s new novel FIREFLY LANE (St. Martin's Press; on-sale February 5th; hardcover), know all about the power of this close bond and the hard work it takes to stay strong for each other when everything seems to be falling apart.

From the mid-seventies and on into the new millennium, Tully and Kate buoy each other through life. Amid Tully's rise to fame as a television journalist and Kate's dream of raising a family, the two weather the storms of friendship: jealousy, anger, hurt and resentment. They think they’ve survived it all until a betrayal puts their friendship to the ultimate test.

Highlighted by USA Today as a title to note in a strong new season of women's fiction, FIREFLY LANE is a story that reaffirms the importance of friendship in our lives and reminds us to appreciate the people who have made us who we are.

"Not since Iris Dart's BEACHES, twenty years ago, has there been a story of friendship that endures everything, from girlhood dramas to bitter betrayal, to be the touchstone in two women's lives. In FIREFLY LANE, Kristin Hannah creates the most poignant of reunions and an unforgettable story of loyalty and love,” wrote Jacquelyn Mitchard, New York Times bestselling author of THE DEEP END OF THE OCEAN.

Please contact me for a review copy, to request an interview with Kristin Hannah, or if you have any questions or comments. Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.

All best,
Anna Jarzab
