April 14, 2014 - PRLog -- A Must-Read for Adults and Teens

Ideal for National Autism Awareness Month

“Fiction at its sharpest and most effective” Piedmont Virginian Magazine

A “gifted writer…as the daughter of an Air Force General, Pennington’s early depiction of life on base gives the book an authentic jumping off point.” Middleburg Life Magazine

“This may be one that bears reading as a teenager – and then once again or maybe even many times once they reach adulthood.”  James Kramer, Pittsburgh, PA

For Immediate Release

“Us four and no more” is the James family motto as Farley, William, and their beloved parents move from Air Force Base to Air Force Base.  For savant-like William, their mother keeps each new house as similar as possible to the old – everything always ‘just so.’  But in the course of one evening, Farley and William’s lives become completely unsprung when their parents are killed in a horrific car accident.  Stunned and grief-stricken, they move into their aunt’s decrepit boarding house overlooking the city of Pittsburgh.  Over time, Farley, William, and the eccentric residents of Bridge Manor bond - holding each other up through loss, love, the threat of eviction, and a brutal act of intolerance.  This patchwork family forms the heart of Penny McCann Pennington’s award-winning debut novel, ‘It Burns a Lovely Light.’

“Another talented writer surfaces.  Although I know your book is to an adult audience, I would recommend teenagers read it too.”  Genevieve Lapham-Cerefice

Ms. Pennington's novel, "It Burns a Lovely Light" was recently awarded with honorary mentions in Fiction from the 2014 New England Book Festival, the 2014 Great Southwest Book Festival, and the 2014 Southeast Book Festival.
