Thanks to Lura Dold of Sandpiper Publicity, I am giving away one print copy of Colette.
Follow one woman's incredible journey through life, love, and war. Colette, an eighteen-year-old Parisian girl, falls for American professor Adam Walker. Within weeks, the young couple is married and Colette says goodbye to the only home she's ever known and journeys to America.
Reaching her new home in Berkeley, California, Colette finds she is expecting and life doesn't seem like it could get any better. She soon discovers, however, that Adam isn't the man she thinks. Forced to endure an abusive husband and a lonely pregnancy, Colette finds solace with her neighbor, John Wu.
As time goes by and war draws nearer, life takes a dramatic turn. She finds herself caught between her family in occupied France and John’s disapproving traditional Chinese parents. Colette will travel around the world and back again in defense of her family, her child, and her love. But will it be enough?
Excerpt from Colette:
“He knew he had no choice. His parents had chosen for him and had pledged him to his wife-to-be. And according to Chinese culture, he had to obey. But he could only think of Colette.”
