Now in Paperback: Her Name is Rose by Christine Breen + Giveaway (US/Can only)

Last spring, Christine Breen came out with her debut novel which I featured at the blog.

Here's some exciting news: just last month, Her Name Is Rose was re-released in paperback format for everyone to enjoy. To celebrate this brand new release, I'm giving away a copy of the paperback version—with the gorgeous new cover—today. Read more for details on how to win!

Her Name is Rose
Christine Breen

Iris Bowen is a young Irish gardener and mother of a beloved adopted daughter, Rose. A recent widow, Iris has spent the last two years concentrating on the day-to-day business of launching Rose into the world. But when she receives some worrisome results on a breast scan, the words of her husband as he was dying of cancer become hauntingly urgent. He had begged Iris to search for Rose's birth mother so that Rose would still have family if anything happened to Iris. Suddenly, Iris fears that Rose really could be left alone.

With no records to guide her beyond a twenty-year-old envelope, Iris impulsively begins a journey into the past that takes her to Boston and back to the west of Ireland, with surprising results for herself, for Rose, and for the others whom their lives touch.

At turns moving and funny, Her Name Is Rose by Christine Breen is a gorgeous and intimate debut novel about what happens when life does not play out the way you expect.
