I am so excited to share this with you, most of you know NY Times Bestselling Author David Baldacci lives nearby, and many of you have read his novels!
But have you read the one non-crime-policitcal thriller he wrote about his family growing up in these Blue Ridge Mountains?
I want you to see this trailer, so you can see Virginia in the Fall, and I hope it is enough of a teaser to help you make plans to come out and meet Virginia for yourself! Wish You Well - the book here.
Precocious 12-year-old Louisa Mae Cardinal lives in the hectic New York City of 1940 with her family. Then tragedy strikes--and Lou and her younger brother, Oz, must go with their invalid mother to live on their great-grandmother's farm in the Virginia mountains.
Suddenly Lou finds herself coming of age in a new landscape, making her first true friend, and experiencing adventures tragic, comic, and audacious. But the forces of greed and justice are about to clash over her new home . . . and as their struggle is played out in a crowded Virginia courtroom, it will determine the future of two children, an entire town, and the mountains they love.
