Clash of the Titles’ next featured author comes in with a storm of high-five comments from some very dedicated fans! Cindy’s novel, Annie’s Stories, was the runner-up in our August Clash, and for good reason. Doesn’t that cover just make you want to drop everything and float away on a good book?
Why not grab, this book…?

About the book:

The year is 1901, the literary sensation The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is taking New York City by storm, and everyone wonders where the next great book will come from. But to Annie Gallagher, stories are more than entertainment—they’re a sweet reminder of her storyteller father. After his death, Annie fled Ireland for the land of dreams, finding work at Hawkins House.

But when a fellow boarder with something to hide is accused of misconduct and authorities threaten to shut down the boardinghouse, Annie fears she may lose her new friends, her housekeeping job . . . and her means of funding her dream: a memorial library to honor her father. Furthermore, the friendly postman shows a little too much interest in Annie—and in her father’s unpublished stories. In fact, he suspects these tales may hold a grand secret.

Though the postman’s intentions seem pure, Annie wants to share her father’s stories on her own terms. Determined to prove herself, Annie must forge her own path to aid her friend and create the future she’s always envisioned . . . where dreams really do come true.

What Cindy’s readers have to say:

“Now and again there comes along a book that holds a personal message for me. I believe these messages come from God. In that alone I’m so very glad I read this book. The influence a book can have on a reader is a special message gleaned from this book. Annie looks to the characters in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz while dealing with her life challenges. Any reader can relate to having been influenced by a book.”  ~Christian Manifesto, 2014 Lime Award Nominee

Amazon reviewer: “A good historical novel will take you back through the years and let you remember a time you never experienced. Cindy Thomson’s Ellis Island series is doing just that. A great historical novel won’t stop there, though, it will also give you characters to befriend while you’re in its pages. Cindy Thomson’s books do that as well.” ~TheophilusFarrell4
