Book Blurb #34: Just Beyond the Bend
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 Becky Povich. My blurb follows.
Freesia Kane knows all about bends in the road—she photographs them. From Paris to Pekanbaru, her photos of winding country drives, snaky city streets, and spiral mountain paths receive accolades everywhere. Except the one place that matters . . .When Freesia learns her estranged mother, Alice, is dying, she journeys home to repair old rifts. But fixing a relationship that was always broken may not be possible.To soothe her spirit, Freesia begins photographing the streets of her home town, talking to people who knew her mother “way back when.” A collage of unexpected images emerges, illuminating a side of Alice that Freesia never knew.Freesia races time to complete the project before Alice’s death. The past may be irreparable, but Freesia yearns to show her mother there is always a chance for something beautiful, lying unseen . . . just beyond the bend.
Thanks for participating in Book Blurb Friday. If you have any photos you think would be appropriate as a “book cover,” please send them to me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Have a great weekend! See you next for Monday’s microfiction.
