I'm in the holiday spirit and so for the entire month of December I will be giving away books!
The first book I will be giving away is a signed, hardcover of my novel Loving Donovan. This book is autographed by both the author (me!) and the illustrator R. Gregory Christie.
"McFadden separately introduces Campbell and Donovan and their early lives of family tragedy and disappointment lived within the same gritty urban neighborhood. She ultimately brings these two wounded people together in a bittersweet story that shows the limitations of love and fate. Campbell is raised by a mother who has trapped her husband in a bitter and loveless marriage. Campbell gets her first lessons about longing and passion from the gay tenants who live in the apartment below, the sounds of their lovemaking and fighting drifting up through the vents. Teenaged motherhood from a hasty sexual encounter seems to seal Campbell's fate. Donovan is also the product of a troubled marriage--abandoned by his mother and raised by a father who is overly controlled by his overbearing mother. Donovan is introduced to sex by a charming hustler who lives in his grandmother's basement and seduces children. By the time Donovan and Campbell meet, they've both recovered enough to know what they want in an adult relationship, but have they healed enough to make it last?" - Vanessa Bush
Loving Donovan received the Fiction Honor Award from BCALA.
