While it’s true that I only cover SF/F/Horror and Suspense on the blog, I’m more than happy to spotlight something a little different every now and then. In this case, I happen to have 2 copies of The Promise of Stardust by Priscille Sibley to give away (courtesy of William Morrow), which looks like it may be a win for some of you literary fiction fans out there (although from the looks of it you might want to keep a mountain of tissues handy.)
About The PROMISE OF STARDUST:
Matt Beaulieu was two years old the first time he held Elle McClure in his arms, seventeen when he first kissed her under a sky filled with shooting stars, and thirty-three when they wed. Now in their late thirties, the deeply devoted couple has everything—except the baby they’ve always wanted.
When a tragic accident leaves Elle brain-dead, Matt is devastated. Though he cannot bear losing her, he knows his wife, a thoughtful and adventurous scientist, feared only one thing—a slow death. Just before Matt agrees to remove Elle from life support, the doctors discover that she is pregnant. Now what was once a clear-cut decision becomes an impossible choice. Matt knows how much this child would have meant to Elle. While there is no certainty her body can sustain the pregnancy, he is sure Elle would want the baby to have a chance. Linney, Matt’s mother, believes her son is blind with denial. She loves Elle, too, and insists that Elle would never want to be kept alive by artificial means, no matter what the situation.
