Award-Winning Debut Novel Floats Secret Family Legacy in A Familiar Shore
Jennifer Fromke’s debut novel, A Familiar Shore, releases March 23, 2012 from Write Integrity Press.
Meg Marks is a young lawyer raised off the coast of the Carolinas. An anonymous client hires her to arrange his will and sends her to meet his estranged family at their lake home in northern Michigan. After a shocking discovery, she finds herself caught between his suspicious family and a deathbed promise her conscience demands that she keep. Will she sacrifice her own dreams to the pursuit of revenge, or will she forgive and leave the door open for possible happiness?
Traveling along the southeastern seaboard, touching down in Charlotte, NC, and lingering on Lake Charlevoix in Northern Michigan, A Familiar Shore sweeps the reader from salty whitecaps to freshwater storms, while bringing to life a quirky but down to earth set of characters.
Fromke says, “This multi-layered story explores a Father’s regrets, a lonely daughter’s drive for a place to belong, and the ugliness that can result from sibling rivalry.”
The novel takes place on Memorial Day weekend, when families all across America begin their summer fun. Its nautical settings and theme make it the perfect read to accompany watersports on the lake, chasing waves at the beach, or dipping a toe in poolside.
The 2010 ACFW Genesis Award for Women’s Fiction was awarded to Jennifer for this novel.
A Familiar Shore is available in print and digital formats at Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/
