A Window Redefined Book Tour & Giveaway

On a cold Valentine’s Day in Chicago, Amy White, a young widow who lost her husband to cancer, visits the cemetery and makes an unsettling discovery: a bouquet of fresh daffodils lying in front of her husband’s grave.

Curiosity grows into obsession as Amy searches for the stranger who left the flowers, while keeping her activities a secret from her live-in mother and seven-year-old son. The search leads to an unusual friendship that transforms her world and redefines her life.

"The warmth of an evolving friendship bound by mutual interests and a family's recovery from close-held grief makes the processes in A Widow Redefined revealing and involving. Any reader seeking a story of emotional growth from all protagonists will find this a story of quiet desperation, friendship, and moving on." D. Donovan, eBook Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

"A lovely story of deep love, friendship, grief, and the process of healing." Mary/Full Circle Book Club, Algonquin, IL "Not since Lisa See's Snow Flower and the Secret Fan have I read such a complex portrayal of friendship. A Widow Redefined will resonate with anyone who has ever lost a loved one and learned how to live again." Author Deborah Brown

"Inspiring! Destined to become a book club favorite." Alicia Robinson/reader review

My thoughts:

This book grabbed me from the beginning and kept me turning pages well into the night, even though it doesn't fit into any typical genre mold (other than maybe fiction or women's fiction). Early on you feel so much for Amy and her little family and the loss of her husband.  She starts out the book just making it from day to day, marking time in her own life and trying to give her son the best possible life.

Until she visits her husband's grave on Valentine's Day and sees that someone else has already been there and left flowers. She decides to stalk the grave (of course, it's a perfectly sane response!) to find out who left the flowers there and why.

What she discovers will change the way she remembers her husband, and may change her life forever...

A definite must-read, and it makes you want to reach out to everyone you love to make sure they know how you feel!
