COCOON'S DEBUT LAUNCH
UNTO THESE HILLS
Today's the big launch date for Emily Sue Harvey's tender novel, Cocoon, a must read for anyone in the sandwich years dealing with aging loved ones who have dementia or Alzheimers Disease. Big congrats Emily Sue!
And I'm now reading the last Emily Sue Harvey novel on my list -- I'll have to wait until she writes the next one -- Unto These Hills. Here's a sneak preview:
Unto These Hills is a remarkable novel of love, scandal, family, and roots by one of the most emotionally authentic authors of our time. Taking us into the Deep South's Tucapau mill hill, it introduces us to the unforgettable Sunny Acklin. Betrayed, abandoned, and violated, Sunny faces one seemingly insurmountable challenge after another. But she never loses her spirit or the memory of the love that once so richly illuminated her world. As years go by, Sunny does everything she can to make something of her life until at last an opportunity arises, one charged with promise...and undeniable risk.
From its vivid evocation of mill hill life to its pitch perfect rendering of the complexities of family and relationships, Unto These Hills is at once epic and intensely intimate. It is the richest novel yet from a writer who fluently speaks the language of our deepest feelings.

First review for Cocoon: "I loved this story! I love Southern stories----Southern in landscape and speech. The author describes the beauty of Seana's corner of South Carolina, tucked away just below North Carolina, where you can see the "blue Smokey Mountain range." The fragrance of "honeysuckles, primrose, lavender" greet the reader in the first few pages. Southern expressions such as: "For crying out loud." "In a jiffy." "Off kilter." "Well I never." "Evasive as a feral fox." This is the language of my people, my land, my South. There is comfort in being amongst my own people---even in a fiction world. ~Annette Krystynik Impressions in Ink
