Thanks to the fab folks over at FSB Associates (Hi, Leyane!), I have the privilege of extending that very opportunity to all of you.  Now just hold your holiday loving horses a moment.  I've got to introduce things first!  You might remember a few months back, I journeyed through the pages of a new release by author Jan Ellison.  Here's a little snapshot of the title and author...

About the book...
At nineteen, Annie Black trades a bleak future in her washed-out hometown for a London winter of drinking to oblivion and yearning for deliverance. Some two decades later, she is married to a good man and settled in San Francisco, with a son and two daughters and a successful career designing artistic interior lights. One June morning, a photograph arrives in her mailbox, igniting an old longing and setting off a chain of events that rock the foundations of her marriage and threaten to overturn her family's hard-won happiness.

The novel moves back and forth across time between San Francisco in the present and that distant winter in Europe. The two worlds converge and explode when the adult Annie returns to London seeking answers, her indiscretions come to light, and the phone rings with shocking news about her son. Now Annie must fight to save her family by piecing together the mystery of her past -- the fateful collision of liberation and abandon and sexual desire that drew an invisible map of her future.
