British Blooms and Books Giveaway

Hello, gentle reader, and welcome to the second annual British Blooms and Books giveaway! This week, we’d like to celebrate the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show. After enjoying this post, please visit each of the other five authors’ blogs (links provided below) and, after a bit of reading fun, follow one simple instruction and then leave a comment on each blog. You’ll be entered to win a fabulous, British Blooms and Books prize. (US winners only, please, due to shipping the petit fours.) Enjoy, and thank you for stopping by!

Note from Melanie

A pink-and-white magnolia blossom flutters out of a girl’s hand, its petals dancing in the wind.

In Catching the Wind, my latest novel, these petals represent the longing in this story. The desire of a German girl named Brigitte, lost during World War II, to bloom and grow in the strange country called England. And the determination of a boy named Dietmar to find her.

Catching the Wind is a novel that slips between past and present, a story that takes readers on a journey between hiding places in Germany, England, and the United States as Dietmar searches for his friend.

The magnolia tree is common in Great Britain today, but it would have been rare during the 1940s. In Brigitte’s mind, she can dream and pray under the canopy of a magnolia’s waxy leaves, like Cinderella once did with her wishing tree, and bury secrets underneath it like her father used to do.

The beauty of the magnolia speaks to Brigitte’s lonely heart and the heart of Quenby Vaughn, the journalist hired seventy years after the war to find her. Before Quenby discovers what happened to this lost woman, she finds Brigitte’s magnolia tree near an old English garden, the pink stars bursting from its branches, a galaxy of blossoms transforming the forgotten garden into a place that whispers the promise of new life. And the letter buried among the roots of this tree sends Quenby on a journey that will change her life.

When I visited England, the castle and cottage gardens with their glorious flowers and wisteria-draped stone walls all seemed to whisper a promise of beauty and new life. And this story about Brigitte and her stalwart tree, I hope, will whisper the stirrings of a faithful wind that brings loved ones back together again.

I hope you enjoyed a glimpse of my latest novel. To enter the giveaway drawing, please sign up for my newsletter here and leave a comment to let us know what you like best about books set in Britain. If you’re already signed up for my newsletter, please let me know in the comments.

    I’m excited to see a new author that I will be trying/reading books from! Julie Classen told me to come here !

    This book sounds intriguing! It would be delightful to read while I’m recuperating from surgery.
