Another GREAT book I got to read and blog about!!! :O)
Stray Affections is by Charlene Ann Baumich. She has a couple more out I would like to check out! She also has a website where you can get an e-mail when she has a new book out. It is www.charleneannbaumbich.com Go check it out!
Charlene Ann Baumich is a popular author, speaker, and an award-winning journalist. In addition to her Dearest Dorothy series of novels, she has written six nonfiction books of humor and inspiration. A bungee-jumpig, once motorcycle-owning grandma, and unabashed dog lover, Charlene lives with her husband and rescued dog, Kornflake, in Glen Ellyn, Illinois.
Cassandra Higgins daycare provider and mother of 4 little boys, is at a Collector's Convention when she's utterly charmed by a one-of-a-kind snowglobe containing figures of three dogs and a little girl with hair the color of her own.
She can't resist buying the beautiful globe, and it begins to spark long-dormant memories for Cassandra, of he beloved grandpa, the stray she rescued as a child, and the painful roots strangling her relationship with her mother, "Bad Betty" Kamrowski. When a strange-flurrious, as Cassandra deems it- moment happens with the remarkable snowglobe, Cassandra and the people she loves are swirled into a tumultuous yet grace-filled journey.
