New Book Release: Unravelled

Please join me in congratulating M.K. Tod on the release of her debut novel, Unravelled! I had the privilege of working with M.K. during three separate phases of bringing this book to life: developmental editing, copyediting, and cover design. I'm so proud of this cover. It took awhile for us to get it right, but that hard work paid off in the end. I'm in love with this cover model and I think we really managed to capture the essence of this poignant story of a marriage struggling to survive two world wars. Here's the book description:

In October 1935, Edward Jamieson's memories of war and a passionate love affair resurface when an invitation to a WWI memorial ceremony arrives. Though reluctant to visit the scenes of horror he has spent years trying to forget, Edward succumbs to the unlikely possibility of discovering what happened to Helene Noisette, the woman he once pledged to marry. Travelling through the French countryside with his wife Ann, Edward sees nothing but reminders of war. After a chance encounter with Helene at the dedication ceremony, Edward's past puts his present life in jeopardy.

When WWII erupts a few years later, Edward is quickly caught up in the world of training espionage agents, while Ann counsels grieving women and copes with the daily threats facing those she loves. And once again, secrets and war threaten the bonds of marriage.

With events unfolding in Canada, France and England, UNRAVELLED is a compelling novel of love, duty and sacrifice set amongst the turmoil of two world wars.

Unravelled is available now in ebook and print on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, in ebook format on Kobo and iTunes. And be sure to check out M.K.'s blog, A Writer of History, where she posts reviews, interviews, research tidbits, and helpful advice she's collected on writing historical fiction and navigating the indie publishing process!

  1. This looks and sounds really interesting, but is it mostly male POV? Or does it go back and forth?

    1. It goes back and forth between the two. Not literally--there are chunks devoted to Ann and others to Edward. The give and take is good and the POV switches worked well for me. And I really enjoyed getting the story from both POVs during the war, watching what Edward goes through in active duty and what Ann and her children go through on the home front.

    2. And the characters were inspired by the author's grandparents and her family's real experiences during the war.

    3. Oh wow!!! That makes it even more appealing. Thanks for replying.
