A cover—and pie recipe—reveal! I’m thrilled to share my next cover with you guys.
A Note Yet Unsung, the third Belmont Mansion novel, releases in January 2017. So what do you think?
A master violinist trained in Vienna, Rebekah Carrington manages to wheedle her way into an audition with the Maestro at the newly-formed Nashville Philharmonic. But women are “far too fragile and frail” for the rigors of an orchestra, and Rebekah’s hopes are swiftly dashed. Because the conductor—determined to leave his mark on the world of classical music—bows to public opinion. To make matters worse, Adelicia Acklen Cheatham, mistress of Belmont Mansion and Rebekah’s new employer, agrees with him.
Nationally-acclaimed conductor Nathaniel Tate Whitcomb is Nashville’s new orchestra leader. And despite a reluctant muse—and a strange buzzing and recurring pain in his head—he must finish composing his symphony before the grand opening of the city’s new opera hall. But far more pressing, he must finish it for the one who first inspired his love of music—his father, who is dying. But Tate’s ailment worsens. He knows Rebekah can help him finish his symphony. But how do you win back a woman’s trust when you’ve robbed her of her dream?
“As music moves us to tears yet makes our hearts soar, A Note Yet Unsung captures the splendor of classical music at a time when women’s hard-won strides in cultural issues changed not only world history—but the hearts of men.”
BTW, I’m thrilled with this cover. And would love to know your thoughts!
Thank you, Bethany House Publishers, for capturing my vision of this story and of Rebekah. Can’t wait to share Tate and Rebekah’s journey with you all…come January.
And now for a very “old” recipe!
Old-fashioned Chocolate Chess Pie
featured in To Wager Her Heart
(Belle Meade Plantation novel #3)
Southern comfort food is included in all my Southern novels, and I’m including a wonderful old pie recipe in the book I’m writing now, To Wager Her Heart, the third Belle Meade Plantation novel.
I had occasion to make this pie last week and was reminded again of how SUPER EASY and delicious it is. Gotta love “one bowl” pies. Or in this case, one pot.
Thanks, Rennie Henderson, who shared this recipe with me
when I was back in college (at Harding University)!
This pie recipe is older than my marriage—as are most chess pie recipes. Reason being, chess pies have been around for a very long time due to their simple ingredients and preparation.
Do you have a one-bowl or one-pie pie you love?
If you do, please share. Because pie is my favorite—along with doughnuts, cakes, cookies, ice creams, DOTS, Peanut M&Ms, and Raisinets, just to name a few. #willpower #thinkingofyouPJ : )
Blessings on your Tuesday, friends.
