A few months back, two sweet and very talented girls posted an epistolary story on their blogs (Taking Dictation and Entirely Bonkers) that they had written together. I had a blast reading it bit by bit as they posted each day, and following Gi and Bess Rowland's respective stories through their written correspondence with one another. Needless to say, I was delighted when they announced they would be publishing it, and jumped at the opportunity to be part of the cover reveal! And boy, I was not disappointed! I must say that I love the cover as much as the book itself.
Isn't it absolutely lovely?! I mean, you can't really go wrong with vintage, but this is simply scrumptious! It matches the story so well - if you haven't read it, you certainly should.
1935: It was never much of an issue for Bess: living contentedly on her family's farm, despite the Depression which loomed around them. But when her older sister Georgiana takes off to New York City to make a fortune and help Papa out, feelings of adventure and wanderlust strike Bess at home. Through their lively letter correspondence, the sisters recount to one another their adventures, surprises, and heartaches, leaving little room for depression. For in a world of such wonder, ain't we got fun?
About The Authors:
EMILY CHAPMAN, also known as Bess Rowland, is a young hobbit living in the dear old South, and she is entirely bonkers. She's a dreamer, an optimistic pessimist, and an introverted people person. Blue skies, dancing, Disney, and whipped cream make her happy, and she swears she's been to Narnia. She's been a reader all her life, became a writer because of that, and published her first novel, Cry of Hope, in March of 2014. But without her Savior, all of this would mean nothing. It is in Him that she puts her hope. “And hope does not disappoint us, for God has poured out His love into hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.” – Romans 5: 5
EMILY ANN PUTZKE and Gi Rowland have two things in common – their love for God and coffee. Besides writing historical fiction, Emily enjoys being an aunty, photography, Irish dancing spending time with family, attempting to play the guitar, reenacting, and reading. She loves polka dots, war movies, and all things vintage. Her first novella, It Took A War, was published in December of 2014.
Ain't We Got Fun will be released May 25, 2015! I can't wait!
