Letters from David

by Eve Paludan

(fiction) contemporary romance

 
 
 
 

NoTreeBooks.com presents the debut novel of Eve Paludan, author of the popular nonfiction book, The Romance Writer's Pink Pages.

In the tradition of novels driven by letters...

A Midwestern woman faces devastating changes in midlife, loses her home and the love of her life, moves cross country to the ocean, finds a lover, and discovers the truths of life and love within the pages of letters.

"Claire Mead didn’t have her husband anymore, her children lived abroad, her income was shrinking and she hadn’t shaved her legs all winter. She hadn’t laughed, truly laughed, for months. She was going broke and still cried much too easily since David died, but suddenly, she realized she had something she had never once had before in her life -- her freedom."

REVIEWS

Says Shannon Yarbrough, author of the bestselling Amazon.com Kindle title, Stealing Wishes:

"Letters from David turned out to be a "whirlwind" of a story that I totally was not expecting. At first, based on the author's previous work, I predicted a much heavier romance and cliche collection of predictable love letters. Not so! The story continues to build with David, the son, writing to his half sister in Paris. Although their story is told completely in letters, reading it as if you were a person in another room over hearing a conversation is quite intriguing. Paludan has written a magnificent tale of love and loss which anyone can enjoy.So, grab a box of tissues and your high school yearbooks, because this book will take you down a path off memory lane where you never expected to go!"

Read Excerpt...

Five years after the death of William Shakespeare, his best friend, Ben Jonson, visits Will's widow, Anne Hathaway, requesting permission to publish Shakespeare's plays in authorized print form. Anne agrees and Ben promises to oversee the process. Ben's additional request of Anne is that she write the love story of herself and William Shakespeare.

And so, guided by her everlasting love for Will, Anne begins to pen their story... It began on a May Day, soon after Anne's mad mother had died, her madness caused by Anne, her bastard daughter. Young Will came to Anne's cottage and requested her to go a-Maying. Older than Will, and of shadowed birth, at first she gently put him off, thinking she wasn't good enough for him -- his reply was a poetic profession of love. And so, Will and Anne began their adventures together.

Don't miss the "real" story that inspired Romeo and Juliet: a family dead set against their marriage, an arrest, a clever "gaol" break, a secret wedding, betrayal, a swooning, heartbreak, mental illness, misunderstandings, cross-dressing and impersonations, the Globe Theatre, the "players," sword fighting, revenge, deception, and plenty of surprise kissing.

Written in the language of the Bard, the story is clever and witty with surprise twists and all of the romance that you would expect from Shakespeare in love.

Read Excerpt...

Eve's Diary by Mark Twain is the poignant, funny, and what-if tongue-in-cheek classic satire of the first couple in the Garden of Eden: how they met; their adventures in the Garden; their love; and their perplexing Mars versus Venus moments. The story has animals (with drawings) and details Eve's experiments with fire and other concepts that are new to just-created humans. A short section gives Adam's take on his understanding of this lovely creature who both frustrates him and makes him head for the Fall. The book's text and images are from our own collection of rare books. The whimsical line drawings by Lester Ralph are enhanced with high black-and-white contrast for sharp and optimal viewing on your Kindle.
