Inspired by a woman’s drastic change to move from New York as an actress to a small village in Cape Cod to reinvent herself, the question is: Would you go back if you could?
Please join Alexandra Speck in an author reading and book signing of her first novel, HONOR GIRL, at Cotuit Center for the Arts on the Main Stage: Saturday, January 27, 2018 from 3-5 PM. Alex will read briefly from the book and be available for questions and answers and a book signing.
Summary of Honor Girl:
At 30, Emma’s life in New York City was in a downward spiral. Between a devastating heartbreak and a mediocre acting career, she knew she could find something better. Searching for a life filled with meaning, or just a barbecue and a patch of grass, Emma moved to a small village in Cape Cod to start over. Now ready to date and embark on a new career, Emma is going to get what she wants out of life. And in the process, she may find who she really needs. Or maybe the answer was there all along…
“Breezy, witty, and totally relatable, Speck's first novel is set in Woods Hole and NYC and is filled with spot on references about local watering holes and other landmarks. You'll root for broken-hearted Emma, the main character, from the first page as she endures her quest to find true love. Some passages are laugh-out-loud funny and even the more sensitive parts are tinged with Speck's light-hearted, self-deprecating tone. You won't be able to put the book down until you find out where Emma's quest leads her and while the ending may be surprising, you'll be satisfied with the result. The one thing you will be wanting more of is Speck's voice, which, hopefully we'll be privy to in another book written by her soon!”
Honor Girl is published by Kindle direct publishing, Paperback Retail Price: $11.99/ISBN 978-1973132326
Available on Amazon, Kindle, and at local bookshops, including Eight Cousins in Falmouth.
