Davalynn Spencer, here, from snow-covered Colorado. That’s me waving in my black earmuffs and black gloves. Everything else is White! I’m excited about visiting today with Carol Award-winning author Kate Breslin about her just-released Far Side of the Sea.
Welcome, Kate. Give us the back-cover copy for Far Side of the Sea.
A shell-shocked WWI British soldier returns to war-torn France after an urgent summons from the sweetheart he’d thought dead. He finds her sister waiting instead, and as the unlikely pair embark on a dangerous quest to find the woman he intended to save, he wonders if he can save himself.
Wow, I’m already intrigued. What inspired you to write this book?
I was researching espionage details from the war for my second novel, Not By Sight, when I came across some fascinating facts about the world of secret communications—and using carrier pigeons for espionage during WWI. With the idea that I would write a sequel to the Mabry family saga in my newest release, Far Side of the Sea, incorporating the pigeons was the spark that helped me to create Colin Mabry’s story.
