Women’s fiction author Mary Carter will begin promoting her new book, My Sister’s Voice, on April 5 to kick off her April & May 2010 virtual book tour.
Mary will begin her tour with an interview at The Writer’s Life on April 5 and will be stopping off at 40 blogs before she winds it up with a book review at Book Reviews by Buuklvr81 on May 28. Some of her stops include Dear Author, Examiner, Blogcritics, and will include over 20 book review blogs. Readers will have a chance to win a free copy of her book during several of her stops just by stopping by and saying hello.
Mary’s book focuses on Lacey Gears who, at twenty-eight, is exactly where she wants to be. An up-and-coming, proudly Deaf artist in Philadelphia, she’s in a relationship with a wonderful man and rarely thinks about her difficult childhood in a home for disabled orphans. That is, until Lacey receives a letter that begins, “You have a sister. A twin to be exact…”
Learning her identical, hearing twin, Monica, experienced the normal childhood she was denied resurrects all of Lacey’s grief, and she angrily sets out to find Monica and her biological parents. But the truth about Monica’s life, their brief shared past, and the reason for the twins’ separation is far from simple. And for every one of Lacey’s questions that’s answered, others are raised, more baffling and profound.
Complex, moving, and beautifully told, My Sister’s Voice is a novel about sisterhood, love of every shape, and the stories we cling to until real life comes crashing in…
