Warrenton, VA, January 14, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- When a military family suddenly comes unsprung, the eldest daughter, Farley, gives up her dreams to care for her younger brother, William. An Autistic Savant, William is the novel's loyal and disarmingly insightful hero.
"The book is written primarily from Farley's perspective," says Penny McCann Pennington, the author of "It Burns a Lovely Light." "The impact of William just took over. It's a classic example of the story directing the author."
As the daughter of a retired Air Force Brigadier General, Pennington had no trouble depicting the life of an on-the-go military family. "We moved more often than most military families. For many years, my three sisters and I were all we had."
"It Burns a Lovely Light" has since received rave reviews in major publications and won numerous awards / honorable mentions, including 2014 USA Best Book Award Finalist. Judges from the 22nd Annual Writer's Digest Awards gave her a perfect 5 in all categories - 5 meaning "Outstanding."
"It Burns a Lovely Light" can be found on Amazon, Kindle, Nook, Barnes&Noble.com, Scribd, and select bookstores and libraries.
