We’re pleased to be hosting author Nancy Jensen this weekend with her new novel, The Sisters. It’s from St. Martin’s Press and was honored as the No. 1 December IndieNext Pick, the highest honor we independent booksellers can give on a monthly basis.
Jensen will join her fans at Destinations Booksellers, 604 E. Spring Street in New Albany beginning at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Please add this major author event to your calendar.
Here’s a bit about the book from her Website. If I know our readers, this will be a big hit.
Growing up in hardscrabble Kentucky in the 1920s, with their mother dead and their stepfather an ever-present threat, Bertie Fischer and her older sister Mabel have no one but each other—with perhaps a sweetheart for Bertie waiting in the wings. But on the day that Bertie receives her eighth-grade diploma, good intentions go terribly wrong. A choice made in desperate haste sets off a chain of misunderstandings that will divide the sisters and reverberate through three generations of women.
