Melting Pot Monday

Do not begin this novel unless you are prepared to be moved, willing to open your heart, and available to the possibility that life can bring you magic.

Chris Astor is a man in his early forties who is going through the toughest stretch of his life.

Becky is Chris’s fourteen-year-old daughter, a girl who has overcome enormous challenges to become a vibrant, vital young woman – and now faces her greatest obstacle yet.

Miea is the young queen of a fantasy land that Becky and Chris invented when Becky was little, a fantasy land that has developed a life of its own and now finds itself in terrible, maybe fatal trouble.

Together, Chris, Becky, and Miea need to uncover a secret. The secret to why their worlds have joined at this moment. The secret to their purpose. The secret to the future. It is a secret that, when discovered, will redefine imagination for all of them.

Blue is a novel of trial and hope, invention and rediscovery. It might very well take you someplace you never knew existed. (from jacket cover)

Learn more about the author, Monica Leonelle at Goodreads.  Silver Smoke is available for preorder at Amazon.  You can also find the author at her website.  I found two covers for this book.  I am not sure which one, if either, is the final cover.  I like the top one best.  How about you?
