My New Cover for Somewhere the Bells Ring!

Lovely cover by the talented artist Tamra Westberry.

SOMEWHERE THE BELLS RING is book three in my ‘Somewhere’ series with a Christmas theme.   Set in the old family homeplace where my father was born and raised, a beautiful plantation home from the early 19th century, the story opens in the tumultuous age of hippies and Vietnam and some of the best darn rock music ever written, 1968.  From that nostalgic age, this time travel/ghost story flashes back to an earlier era, 1918, and World War One.   Having a Marine Corps Captain grandfather who distinguished himself in France in the thick of the fighting during The Great War and then tragically died when my father was only three certainly influenced this story.  If you enjoy a good mystery with Gothic overtones, time travel back to vintage America, and heart-tugging romance then Somewhere the Bells Ring is for you.  Stay tuned for more as the release date nears later this year.

    1968 seems to be a popular year for Time Travel novels. I have a favorite author who has written three novels featuring that year. She was around then, but a seventeen year old teenager. I was 24 at the time.

    What a beautiful cover. I need to read the book after I read the first two in the series I’ve already purchased.

    Thanks Ray. 1968 was an important year in many ways. I was 12. 🙂

  3. Beautiful cover, Beth! I was 5 then, and my youngest brother was nary a thought. Sounds like an interesting story.
