Sara Gruen will be In Conversation about her new novel At the Water's Edge

EVENT OVERVIEW:  Sara Gruen will appear In Conversation with Vivien Jennings, Founder & President of Rainy Day Books about Sara's New Novel At the Water's Edge.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Sara Gruen is the #1 New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of Water for Elephants, Ape House, Riding Lessons, and Flying Changes.  Her works have been translated into forty-three languages and have sold more than ten million copies worldwide.  She lives in western North Carolina with her husband and three sons, along with their dogs, cats, horses, birds, and the world’s fussiest goat.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  In this new novel from the author of Water for Elephants, Sara Gruen again demonstrates her talent for creating spellbinding period pieces.  At the Water’s Edge is a gripping and poignant love story about a privileged young woman’s personal awakening as she experiences the devastations of World War II in a Scottish Highlands village.  Madeline Hyde, a young socialite from Philadelphia, reluctantly follows her husband and their best friend to the tiny village of Drumnadrochit in search of a mythical monster—at the same time that a very real monster, Hitler, wages war against the Allied Forces.  What Maddie discovers—about the larger world and about herself—through the unlikely friendships she develops with the villagers, opens her eyes not only to the dark forces that exist around her but to the beauty and surprising possibilities.
