Welcome again to Book Blurb Friday. If you're a newbie, here's the scoop so you understand what follows. Please click HERE or click the tab under the blog header for details of the Book Blurb Friday meme. This is the shortened, abridged version:
Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.
Below is this week's "book cover," generously offered for our creative blurbs by Kay Davies at An Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel. My blurb is below.
In fall of 1872 Faith Strong learns of the accidental deaths of her sister and brother-in-law. She catches the first train from Massachusetts to Kentucky to claim her four nephews, but her brother-in-law’s brother, Moose Reinhardt, has stepped in and doesn’t want Faith’s help.
When a blizzard isolates Faith with her young nephews and their stubborn uncle, it is Faith who keeps their lives on an even keel. But when the weather clears, Faith prepares to leave.
Moose can see the boys are happier with Faith in their lives, even if she is a bossy Yankee. To convince Faith to stay, Moose devises an elaborate scheme to show her she’s needed. But Faith wants more. She wants love. By the time Moose realizes he feels the same way it may be too late, and he is forced to admit the only thing worse than needing Faith will be losing her.
