Camille Eide launches her third romantic, inspirational novel in December with Ashberry Lane Publishing. It will be available in eBook Dec 1 and print Dec 15.
Love can’t rewrite the pages of one’s past, but it can
cover a multitude of sins—one page at a time.
A young WWII widow hired to write an exclusive memoir lands on McCarthy’s hit list and must clear her name while trying not to fall in love with the born-again, ex-Hollywood heartthrob, whose scandalous past keeps him too busy to notice her. Or does it?
The Memoir of Johnny Devine is a 1950s “classic” love story set in a time when post-war America seeks security in prosperity, Hollywood’s Golden Age is coming to an end, the “Red Scare” reaches new heights of paranoia, and unrest over civil rights continues to grow. It’s a story for those who enjoy a character-driven, inspirational drama, a strong but chaste romance, and a touch of intrigue.
RT Book Reviews (Dec issue) gave The Memoir of Johnny Devine a rare FIVE Gold Stars, their highest rating.
“Sharp, on-point writing immediate engages and makes it difficult to tear one’s attention away from this emotionally riveting novel. The romantic tension sizzles nearly from the beginning, and readers will often find themselves breathless from the sheer delight of it. Snippets from the compelling but fictional memoir peppered throughout the novel not only give vivid life to the protagonist, but also make it easy to forget that one is indeed reading fiction. The message of redemption is conveyed with such poignant elegance that it will linger long after turning the last page.” —Carrie Townsend, RT Book Reviews
