A Book Signing : The Kiss Of Death

"Be A Girl With A Mind, A Woman With Attitude, And A Lady With Class"
This past Tuesday I had the honor of attending my friend's book signing at Barnes and Noble. It just blows my mind that she is a published author at such a young age. Ambitious and driven, she always has something on her to-do list. We've been friends since first grade, so I can say that I've been there since practically the start! 
The book is described as " Elizabeth Chauncey is a well-off young woman in 14th century London. Though she is considered nobility due to a distant relative, she refuses to think of herself as such. She is close to a childhood friend, Matthias de Bourgueville, with whom she spends much of her time. They have just returned from an outing at the theatre when her world is shaken up.

Suddenly the servants have taken sick, and soon everyone in London is becoming ill with a mysterious disease. People are dying rapidly and the physicians can do little to halt the spread of disease. Elizabeth and Matthias begin to lose family members, causing a rift in their relationship as love and religion come between them. For what kind of God would inflict such pain and cruelty?
Finally, when her home is bolted shut and she and her sick and dying family are trapped inside a Plague House with no escape, Elizabeth is faced with a choice: remain and die, or flee and take cover in the faith that God will protect her. But time is running out, and she is losing hope. To top things off, Matthias has professed his undying love for her and a proposal of marriage. But if they're all to die anyway, what is the point of going on?
This is a story of a young woman faced with the pain of loss and decision to stay strong in a world that's destined to destroy her and everything she loves. It is the tale of looking death in the eye and turning the other cheek. But when faith is lost and death is omnipresent, will she refuse its kiss?"

I know it would mean the world to her if you checked out her book. It is available to purchase at Barne's and Noble

  1. That is so cool! Lots of people want to write, but very few finish and see it through--much less publish! You are so nice to be such a supportive friend. Hope everything goes well for her.

    PS darling dress and shoes. And you guys coordinate perfectly. Did you plan that?
