Publisher's Lunch Deal of the Day!
I am so excited to be able to talk about this!
For a long while I have been quietly working on a book that I've called The River Child. Here's what happened — while I was researching Once Upon a Wardrobe, I was struck by a tidbit of 1939 British history.
In England, in Operation Pied Piper, children from large cities were sent away from their families to protect them from bombings. With luggage tags around their necks, gas masks dangling from their knapsacks, and a stamped addressed note for their parents when they found out where they’d end up, these children were bundled onto trains and ships and sent off to unknown locations.
So I imagined a pair of sisters, a mystery, a fairy tale, a rare book shop, and a missing child— and next year you can read about them! I am thrilled to join the @atriabooks family.
Here is today's @publisherslunch deal of the day! Time to celebrate and then back to work! More soon! More than you'll want to know.
