Today I am pleased to welcome Joi Copeland. She will be sharing with us about her book Letters of Love.
Before we begin the answer to last weeks question was Bison. The winner of the drawing is Marianne.
Joi please tell us about Letters of Love.
Two men fighting for their country.
Two women dealing with tragedy alone.
Two different stories, two different eras, one common thread.
Sophia Philips, a wife and mom, finds herself missing the two most important people in her life. One ripped from her because of war, the other by death.
Sophia’s grandmother, Lucia Snell, gives her an early inheritance; letters written to her by her husband while stationed in China during World War II. Lucia believes these letters will help her granddaughter heal from the heart-wrenching tragedy she faces.
Will Sophia carry the anger, bitterness, and guilt within her or go to the only One who can heal her from the pain? Will she find the strength to carry on and the will to survive through her grandparents’ Letters of Love?
Did anything in particular inspire this book?
My inspiration for this book was my grandparents. My grandfather wrote the actual letters in this book to my grandma when he was stationed in Ceylon and China during WWII.
Do you have plans for a sequel or is this a stand alone book?
This is a stand alone novel.
What is next for you? Do you have any other releases scheduled, are you working on something new?
This is a stand alone novel. I do have another book, Hope from the Past, coming out. It’s the third in my Hope Trilogy. I’m currently working on Sunshine in Spring which is about Camden from Christmas Rayne.
That’s exciting! It sounds like you are keeping busy.:)
I always like to include one fun question to help the readers get to know you a bit. If you could visit any place in the entire world where would you go?
Right now, I’d go to England. I have a novel that is going to be England and the U.S.
Is this the novel you mentioned or a different one and what is it called?
No. It isn’t the novel I mentioned. This is a different one. I don’t have a title for it yet. I haven’t started writing it. That’s down the road a bit.:)
How fun! Hopefully you will get to visit. Thanks for joining us today, Joi.
Thank you so much for having me! It was a pleasure!
