It is my pleasure to once again share my blog with an incredibly talented indie author. Please give a warm welcome to this week’s Rave Reviews Book Club Spotlight Author Nancy M. Bell.
For Storm’s Refuge, my inspiration was a black momma dog I saw on a First Nations reserve near Calgary. She was thin and hungry but we couldn’t catch her. She never made it off. Storm is inspired by her, but is a conglomerate of many rescue dogs I’ve known. The book is dedicated to all the animals who need rescue and to all those who rescue them. I wish I could say they all have happy endings like Storm, but sadly that isn’t true. Animal abuse and cruelty is rampant and since animals are viewed as chattels or property it is very hard to help some of them. I urge everyone to find a reputable animal rescue in your area and support them. Eagles Den Rescue in Clarkton, NC does amazing work in the U.S. I support Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society in Calgary, Alberta.
Laurel Rowan is determined to find her estranged grandmother. She wants answers to some questions that arose after her visit to Cornwall. Laurel needs to know why her father is angry with Gramma Bella. Arriving in the hamlet of Bragg Creek, Alberta, Laurel is disappointed to find Gramma Bella has gone to England. A Christmas visit to her friends in Cornwall seems like a good idea, after all that’s where all the questions started. What she finds there is both exciting and disturbing. Laurel and her friends embark on another adventure over the windswept moors and down the narrow winding streets of Cornish villages. The biggest question is: Where is Gramma Bella and what does Vear Du know about it?
