Announcing... Fiction Readers' newest pick:
**SHELTER ME by Juliette Fay**
In the tradition of Marisa de los Santos and Anne Tyler comes a moving debut about a young mother's year of heartbreak, loss, and forgiveness...and help that arrives from unexpected sources. Four months after her husband's death, Janie LaMarche remains undone by grief and anger. Her mourning is disrupted, however, by the unexpected arrival of a builder with a contract to add a porch onto her house. Stunned, Janie realizes the porch was meant to be a surprise from her husband-now his last gift to her.
As the porch takes shape, Janie discovers that the unknowable terrain of the future is best navigated with the help of others-even those we least expect to call on, much less learn to love.
SHELTER ME was chosen as a Target Book Club pick and is on the INDIE NEXT list. Here is an example of what people are saying about this heartwarming debut:
"What a gorgeous paradox of a book: a deep, thoughtful exploration of a young mother's first year of widowhood that is as much a page-turner as any thriller. The translucent beauty of the writing and the sheer humanity of the characters pulled me along, often more quickly than I wanted to go. If it were up to me, I'd still be in the company of prickly, magnificent Janie and the people she loves."
- - Marisa de los Santos, New York Times bestselling author of Belong To Me
