BLOG TOUR: Honeysuckle Holiday by Kathleen M Jacobs - SPOTLIGHT + GIVEAWAY!

Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.


Today, we're joining a My Book Tour promotion already in progress.  It stars a work of Fiction that, from the sound of things, promises to whisk you away to days gone by with a Southern drawl and a hefty dose of 1960's controversy.  It was a different time and many things accepted (or not) now were much more gossip inducing (or worse) back then.  So, if you'd be so kind, please pour yourself a cold glass of tea and settle in for a glimpse of today's blog tour guest and book of choice...

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Honeysuckle Holiday centers on the life of twelve-year-old protagonist, Lucy. It takes place in the south, in the late 1960s. Lucy struggles internally to come to terms with her parents' sudden and mysterious divorce. She finds herself thrust almost overnight from a world of comfort and privilege into one of near marginality.

When Lucy’s mother hires a black woman to help her, the situation intensifies. As the story progresses, Lucy learns the mystery behind her parents' divorce and her father's uncharacteristic, almost unforgivable immersion in the KKK. Lucy comes to shed her unknowing racism, taking her beyond the ideals of youth, her love of books and the trappings of childhood knit closely to her very fiber. She learns to peel back the layers of human frailty (her own included) painful piece by painful piece, while struggling to hold on to the comforts of innocence. Honeysuckle Holiday is young adult, to adult reading.

Hi. Nice to hear from you. And thanks for the feedback. I shouldn't love it like I do, but I do. And, like you, I love "the sheer joy of reading."
