     Last night I discussed A Sudden Gift of Fate with a delightful crowd at the George F. Johnson Memorial Library in Endicott. The Friends of the GFJ Library sponsor these books reviews on Tuesdays twice a year, for the months of April and October.
     Afterward, I had the opportunity to speak with a woman who was a member of a book club that read the novel as their second selection. It was great to get her feedback on what they thought of the book (most had not read the prequel, The Cyber Miracles) especially in terms of the characters and their actions. (Can’t divulge too much here, lest I spoil the plot for others.)
     I appreciated getting her frank feedback, and welcome it from other readers of the book. If you’d like to share yours, or if you have any questions about the plot and characters, please send me an e-mail here.

I found out today that another book club in Binghamton has selected A Sudden Gift of Fate to read.

I’m thrilled to hear this, and if any members of the group care to send me feedback on the group’s reaction to the novel, I’d love to hear from you.

You can send an e-mail here.

If you know of any other book clubs carrying the novel, or if you want to know how you can get your local bookstore to carry the novel, please send me an e-mail.

What readers are saying:
"This endearing foursome, that so many readers of the first book fell in love with, face new challenges with Irish wit and a generally upbeat outlook on life. They're a group of friends that anyone would want to hang out with."
"After finishing it, I kept thinking of the characters and wondered how they were doing. I had to remind myself they weren't real and had to let them go..."
"I couldn't put it down."
"Pure dead brilliant!"

The story

Irish couple Fergal and Brídgeen Griffin get an intriguing wedding gift: the chance to manage a Finger Lakes winery. When they move to Keuka Lake from Queens, see the rundown winery and meet its surly winemaker, they realize it will be quite a challenge getting from grapevine to bottle.
Meanwhile their friends Maeve and Andy face a challenge of their own, separation as he pursues experimental therapy for his paraplegia.
As the two couples face the challenges ahead, will they be able to keep hope alive?
