September is going to be a busy month for Book Club Girl on Air, with book club shows happening every week! First we'll have Tom Piazza discussing City of Refuge on September 10th, followed by Jacqueline Sheehan, author of the bestselling Lost & Found, who will join us to discuss her new novel, Now & Then.
Anna O'Shea has failed at marriage, shed her job at a law firm, and she's trying to re-create herself when she and her recalcitrant nephew are summoned to the past in a manner that nearly destroys them. Her twenty-first-century skills pale as she struggles to find her nephew in nineteenth-century Ireland. For one of them, the past is brutally difficult, filled with hunger and struggle. For the other, the past is filled with privilege, status, and a reprieve from the crushing pain of present-day life. For both Anna and her nephew, the past offers them a chance at love.
Will every choice they make reverberate down through time? And do Irish Wolfhounds carry the soul of the ancient celts? The past and present wrap around finely wrought characters who reveal the road home. Mystical, charming, and fantastic, New York Times bestselling author Jacqueline Sheehan's Now & Then is a poignant and beautiful tale of a remarkable journey. It is a miraculous evocation of a breathtaking place in a volatile age filled with rich, unforgettable, deeply human characters and one unforgettable dog named Madigan.
Join us on Monday, September 14th when we talk with Jacqueline about Now & Then. The first 10 people to comment on this post that they'd like to participate in the show on the 14th will receive a free copy of Now & Then to read in preparation for the show!
