While she was with us, she talked about an earlier novel, a fun piece called SAVE YOUR OWN, under the name Elisabeth Brink. It was named a Book Sense Notable Book, and the back jacket blurb reads as follows:
"Meet Gillian Cormier-Brandenburg: A virginal, narcoleptic, atheistic Harvard Divinity School student struggling to finish her Ph.D. thesis. When her fellowship is revoked, Gillian must venture outside the walls of academia in search of a new source of income as well as interview subjects for her dissertation. She takes a job at Responsibility House, a halfway house for recovering addicts. Here pintsize Gillian is charged with the unlikely task of imposing order on unruly tenants, including motorcycle-obsessed Janet, impulsive former prostitute Florine, and self-righteous Stacy, who begin to inspire her to rethink her own dreams and desires.
A delightful read for all those who have ever wished they could be a little more than they are, SAVE YOUR OWN is the perfect self-made Cinderella story."
Doesn't that sound good? We thought so. The book is about to come out of processing and go on our shelves. We hope you enjoy it!
