[Book Spotlight] The Astrologer's Daughter + G!veaway

Joanna Halloran, a best selling writer and astrologer, lives in a beach house overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. After a violent storm, she roams the beach, glances seaward and spots a man clinging to a piece of wreckage, being tossed helplessly. She dives in and pulls him safely onto the beach.

Robert Zachary Harrison is from a wealthy, political family. As he slowly recovers from a private plane crash, he and Joanna fall in love and spend passionate and sequestered weeks together. But because of family duty, Robert makes the painful decision to leave her and return to his fiancée and political life. He departs, not knowing Joanna is pregnant.

Twenty five years later, Senator Robert Harrison is running for President of the United States. In the midst of a contentious presidential campaign, Joanna’s daughter, who has a passion to expose secrets, seeks revenge on her father. She is also falling in love with her father’s adopted son.

As secrets emerge, Joanna and Robert meet again and confront the past and present. Robert confesses a secret that Joanna had never known. Now, on the world stage, they struggle to keep their families and careers from destruction.

  1. The story sounds good, but I really love this cover!

  2. Donna:

    Thank you for your comment. We worked with a designer on this, wanting a combination effect of photographic and Illustration. We also wanted to capture a kind of longing and sense of hope. Elyse loves the beach and summer, so that was a given. It's nice of you to take the time to comment.

  3. Sounds like a really good book to read while sitting outside on my deck. Love the pretty front cover too.

  4. This book sounds fabulous! I love the cover and I love the concept of it... definitely sounds like a thought provoking book.

  5. Douglas' father is a professional astrologer, so we were able to tap into his wisdom, and have fun with the astrological aspect of Joanna being a professional astrologer.

  6. I want to see how the author resolves family issues with the illegitimate daughter falling in love with her dad's adopted son. That must be awkward at Thanksgiving!

  7. I like to find out what happens when secrets kept for a long time finally come out.

  8. This sounds like a great story, lots of emotions. I am eager to see how Robert handles finding out that he had a child with the woman he loved but left. And how his daughter handles wanting to expose/hurt her father but how falling in love with his adopted son affects her actions/thoughts. Basically, I just think this story sounds great!

  9. I really would like to read this book...I love astrology to start with.
