Our First Pop-Up Book Shop and Holiday Gift Guide for Book Lovers

From historical fiction and Americana humor, to fantasy and ancient world romance, to health and fitness and Regency romance, there was something for just about any reading taste. And what better way to make a holiday gift special than to have it signed and personalized by the author?

Book Spotlight: The Curate’s Brother, by Wendy Van Camp

THE CURATE’S BROTHER: A Variation of Jane Austen’s Persuasion

By Wendy Van Camp

 

$2.99 ebook at Amazon and Barnes & Noble
$5.99 paperback at Amazon 

 

Edward Wentworth, a young curate, is surprised by the arrival of his brother. Commander Frederick Wentworth, the “hero of San Domingo,” is on shore leave from his battles in the Napoleonic war and has come to spend time with the only family he has in England.

All the good Commander wants to do is flirt and dance with the ladies until he is called back to sea, but when his flirting extends to Sally Marshall, an outgoing beauty that Edward always disdained as “a child,” the curate becomes aware that his opinion of Sally is sorely outdated. Meanwhile, Frederick becomes drawn to shy wallflower Anne Elliot. She is the daughter of a baronet and above his station, but Frederick pays no heed to his brother’s warnings that class may prevent their union.

At the end of summer, a letter and package arrive that will change everything for the two brothers. Which will prevail, the bold action of the commander or the quiet manners of the curate?
