The Four Corners of the Sky is described as a novel of love, family, and forgiveness.  Annie is a Navy pilot now but once she was a motherless child, abandoned by her con artist father to live with family she’d never met.   When her father’s dying wish is the return of a precious gift in exchange for her mother’s name, Annie embarks on an unforgettable adventure.

Big Library Read is a pilot program in which libraries worldwide offer a single eBook to their patrons. In addition to creating a global “library book club,” Big Library Read is designed to demonstrate the positive exposure and sales influence library eBook catalogs provide to authors and publishers. It will spotlight one title for a set time period for library patrons around the world to read simultaneously. The program is sponsored by OverDrive, a global distributor of eBooks and audiobooks, with initial support and participation from Sourcebooks, Inc., a leading US independent publisher.
