August 28, 2017- The Writing Desk by Rachel Hauck *Author Appearing*

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Dress comes a new captivating novel of secrets, romance, and two women bound together across time by a shared dream.

Tenley Roth’s first book was a runaway bestseller. Now that her second book is due, she’s locked in fear. Can she repeat her earlier success or is she a fraud who has run out of inspiration?

With pressure mounting from her publisher, Tenley is weighted with writer’s block. But when her estranged mother calls asking Tenley to help her through chemotherapy, she packs up for Florida where she meets handsome furniture designer Jonas Sullivan and discovers the story her heart’s been missing.

A century earlier, another woman wrote at the same desk with hopes and fears of her own. Born during the Gilded Age, Birdie Shehorn is the daughter of the old money Knickerbockers. Under the strict control of her mother, her every move is decided ahead of time, even whom she’ll marry. But Birdie has dreams she doesn’t know how to realize. She wants to tell stories, write novels, make an impact on the world. When she discovers her mother has taken extreme measures to manipulate her future, she must choose between submission and security or forging a brand new way all on her own.

Tenley and Birdie are from two very different worlds, but fate has bound them together in a way time cannot erase.

Allison, to answer your additional questions- this book was just released in November, so this will be the first time everyone is reading it.  And there is never a cost to have your book signed! :)  I am so happy you are enjoying the story!  It is certainly one of my favorite book by Rachel!

Allison,  when an author comes to the group, we pretty much give them control of the meeting to let them talk about the process of writing the book.  You can ask questions and talk about what you enjoyed about the book.  Be prepared to find out the ending if you haven't read the entire story!  It's a pretty laid back evening- we just like to get together and chat.  Rachel Hauck will be available to sign your book after the discussion if you would like.
