)-- Artist and short story author, Lee Libro, releases her debut novel, "Swimming With Wings."
About the Book (Excerpts & Info):
Have you ever felt like you were out of your element living here on earth? Have you ever imagined that maybe you really had wings? In her first novel, Lee Libro, visual artist and author of short stories garnering nationwide appeal, brings you the story of Lark Jennison, a character facing just such a dilemma. "Swimming With Wings" is a blend of southern literature with a dash of mystery and paranormal romance.
"Swimming With Wings" follows the journey of three very different characters: a 19th century light healer; his grandson, a would-be superstar of the evangelical world of the 1970’s; and Lark Jennison, a free-thinking, orphaned artist with an eccentric imagination. Stemming from a shared tragedy from long ago, their stories convergence with a famous American sculpture residing in the Portland Museum of Art and the hidden secrets of a tumbledown plantation, ultimately releases a tale of human brotherhood and true spiritual love.
Perfect bound and expertly constructed at 286 pages, "Swimming With Wings" includes a Reading Group Guide aimed specifically at the book club market and is being further promoted to markets with a focus on the New Age and Literary Fiction categories.
