A Writer’s Notes #51

The Best of Families is the 2017 IndieReader Discovery Award winner for popular fiction. Here’s the IRDA verdict: “Hero Fran Delafield is a compelling narrator—and, even better, an engaging storyteller in this tale of a Quebec-Pennsylvania love match. Set originally in the 1950s and moving through subsequent decades with historical events as a backdrop (the Vietnam War, for one), Fran experiences joy and loss through a series of serendipitous circumstances: a marriage. Divorce, combat injuries, children, parental relations, death, and a new beginning. Like life itself.”
