ARC Arrival: Stray Affections

Stray Affections by Charlene Ann Baumbich

Publisher: Waterbrook Press

I received this from Ashley at Random House for a book tour in September. Thanks Ashley!

About the book: Cassandra Higgins, daycare provider and mother to four little boys, is at a Collectors' 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 her 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.

With the quirky, close-knit Midwestern small-town feel that made Charlene Ann Baumbich's Dearest Dorothy series so popular, Stray Affections invites you to experience the laughter and the healing of second chances. (book cover)

About the author: Charlene Ann Baumbich 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-jumping, once motorcycle-owning grandma, and unabashed dog lover, Charlene lives with her husband and rescued dog, Kornflake, in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. (book cover)
