BookSpotlight: Tortuous Shadows by Jennifer Parr.

Book and Author Spotlight: Tortuous Shadows by Jennifer Parr 


Today I am highlighting the author of Tortuous Shadows, Jennifer Parr. If you don't already know there is a giveaway going on that includes this book and two others. Check out the giveaway here.
This author spotlight will showcase the novel we are giving away and a little about the author.



Tortuous Shadows (An Avalon Valley Novel, Book 1)


Eighteen-year-old Aria Morgan, along with her mother and Dviinu brother, Aaron, are virtually nonexistent members of Avalon Valley, a remote village cupped in the hands of paradise. Outcast since birth, Aria has resigned herself to the grim reality that, without finding love and bearing a child in the next few years, she will die - the unkind result of the Darkness' unrelenting grip on humanity.

But when a harrowing ordeal brings Aria's end hauntingly near, fate intervenes in the form of Liam Trey, handsome Avalon Valley newcomer. Liam is the kind of guy Aria can see herself having a future with, but her sordid family history follows her like shadows. If she bares her secrets, Liam could reject her, but what does she have to lose?
Despite her fears, Liam has fallen for Aria and so begins their relationship, fragile at best, troubled at worst, and tested to no end. Still, Aria's future has never been brighter...until Liam is shunned for his association with her, and a warning brings Aria face to face with a decision that will cost her everything she thought she'd never have.
Ringing with dystopian undertones, Tortuous Shadows delivers a rich, old-world feel to modern-day romantics of any age, as Aria is thrust into a journey that leads her down a path to love, redemption, and eternal purpose. Aria's journey continues in Better Shade, book two of the Avalon Valley trilogy - available soon.



ABOUT THE AUTHOR  


I've always considered myself a creative soul, whether it's scrapbooking or sewing, painting or cake decorating, but nothing has been more rewarding than novel writing. I'm a wife and stay-at-home mother of four, a veteran of the USAF, and a huge horse lover - riding in gymkhanas was my absolute favorite as a teen.

When I'm not spending time with my family or writing, I probably have a book in my hand. My favorite author is Maggie Stiefvater, because she is both entertaining and an inspiration to anyone who loves to write. I am extremely thankful to be able to do what I do, and I know I wouldn't be where I am without the support of my family, friends, and the readers who make it all worthwhile.

Works include: Daddy's Little Princess; Tortuous Shadows, the first installment of my Avalon Valley trilogy; and my recently completed series starter, The Purifier. I am currently seeking representation.


{Parr's works are available on SmashwordsBarnes and Noble and Kobo.}
