Dear Reader,

In the summer of 1957, Frances and Bernard meet at writer's colony. Afterwards, he sends her a letter, and with it begins a friendship told through a correspondence that chronicles — and changes — the course of their lives. Frances is hesitant where Bernard is insistent, cynical where he is quixotic, but in each other they find the audience they've been searching for. From their dazzlingly witty early missives to dispatches from the long, dark nights of the soul, Frances and Bernard tussle over faith and family, literature and creativity, madness and devotion — and before long, they are writing the account of their very own love story.

Inspired by the friendship between Flannery O'Connor and Robert Lowell, FRANCES AND BERNARD is a sparkling tribute to the wonder of kindred spirits and bittersweet romance.

I'm giving away 5 copies of FRANCES AND BERNARD. Email my publisher at to enter.
