BOOK TIP: Historical fiction fans, there’s a wonderful list of book suggestions in this article. I checked four of them out from my public library–I’ve already started reading Ahab’s Wife and am riveted!
The article features the bookseller of Parnassus Books and author Geraldine Brooks. I enjoy Geraldine Brooks‘ work–if you haven’t read her, DO. The Secret Chord is lush and riveting–so a list of book suggestions from her caught my attention. If you’re so inclined, I think you’ll enjoy the article as well as the book suggestions.
I’d love to hear if/when you read any of the books on this list–email me or pop over to the conversation on Facebook!

Let me just say…oh, yeah 🙂
My latest book, BRIDGES OF STARLIGHT, has gotten some great reviews on Amazon–these things are music to an author’s ears/eyes!
If you haven’t had a chance to read BRIDGES OF STARLIGHT, here’s the Back of the Book Blurb— and also a teaser or two to entice you along 🙂
- “Bridges of Starlight will whisk you away to a tropical paradise where the sunsets are breathtaking and the island itself offers refuge and hope for the heartbroken. What truly sets this romance apart is the community surrounding it. Katie and Ford have a long road to travel back to one another but they don’t do it alone. By the end of this book, the island’s residents feel like family, making Bridges of Starlight an all the more satisfying story.” – California, USA
- When I started reading, I was surprised and delighted to find that I had returned to the holiday island setting of Dana Tanaro Britt’s first novel, “Shades of Blue.” The familiar setting enhanced the story unfolding before me, and allowed me to reacquaint myself with characters I’d ‘met’ and grown fond of before, as they were woven through the lives, times and trials of the newcomers. Hopeful, absorbing and captivating… I literally couldn’t put it down! – Australia
- I so enjoy reading Dana’s books. She has a wonderful talent for bringing a story to life and making the reader feel a part of it. I was so enthralled with Ford and Katie’s story was really hard to lay aside for daily chores and sleep! – Alabama, USA
Such kind, complimentary words from wonderful readers–thank you all!

I’m beyond proud and excited to present my newest book to you!
BRIDGES OF STARLIGHT is the second book in my Island Sanctuary novel series–it can easily be read as a stand alone, but early readers tell me it’s an added bonus to have read my first book, Shades of Blue.
Here’s the Back of the Book Blurb for BRIDGES OF STARLIGHT if you’d like to check it out.
I love the Painted Parrot island community! The people, the community they’re building together make for an inviting story–and the island is such a beautiful place! I’d love for you to visit us there 🙂
