I shared the cover of my second novel, The Bungalow, with you last week, and I’m delighted to say that two amazing authors have provided beautiful endorsements for this book! Kristin Hannah (author of Night Road, Winter Garden, many other amazing novels) had a chance to squeeze in a read while in Hawaii this month, and here’s what she had to say: “The Bungalow is a heartfelt, engaging love story set against the fascinating backdrop of the War in the Pacific.”
The lovely Carol Cassella, author of Oxygen and Healer, also read The Bungalow and shared this quote: “Sarah Jio whips romance, history and a page-turning mystery into one mesmerizing South Sea dream. The Bungalow reads smooth as a summer day, but Jio’s plot races forward with unexpected twists and timeless, haunting love that make you cheer and cry and ache for more.”
I’m so grateful to Carol and Kristin! And, I can’t wait for YOU to read this story. As soon as I get my hands on early copies, I’m going to be giving one away to an early reader here! Stay tuned!
The Bungalow will be published in the spring of 2012 by Penguin (Plume), and also by Heyne Verlag, a division of Random House in Germany!
