On Monday I have to submit one of these sales hooks for wide distribution. Which one would most entice you to read on?
1. Fifty years after Rachel Field’s heartbreaking death, Robin Clifford Wood stepped onto the sagging floorboards of the renowned author’s long-neglected island home off the coast of Maine. Wood became enchanted by Field’s mysterious past, a life fraught with challenge, flushed with success, then buried by tragedy. The journey into Rachel’s world took Wood further than she ever dreamed possible.
2. The Field House, a unique biography-memoir, features the rugged shores of Maine, old New York, and early Hollywood. Two strong women writers – one living, one dead – share uncannily similar passions and conflicts that shape their lives. When they “meet” through the whispers of an old, neglected island home, they forge a startling friendship across time and impossible distance.
This April 10th blizzard left our backyard like Narnia under the spell of the White Witch. We flushed a great blue heron from the pond. She unfurled her great wings and lifted off like a great flying dinosaur.
Omens of unexpected beauty abound.
