Concord author Nancy Brewer at Literary Bookpost

Nancy Brewer visits Literary Bookpost
Concord author and storyteller Nancy B. Brewer will visit Literary Bookpost on Thursday, July 28, at 5 p.m. for a meet-and-greet and book signing with her new book, ěBeyond Sandy Ridge.î The book is a direct follow-up to Brewerís first novel, ěCarolina Rain,î and continues the story of Theodosia Elizabeth Sanders, or Lizzie.
In ěBeyond Sandy Ridge,î as the War Between the States closes in, Lizzie flees her home, leaving behind her hopes and dreams. She finds a new home, where finery and social graces will buy nothing, not even friends. To the people of Stanly County, N.C., Lizzie is a familiar story. She is just another young widow with a babe in her arms.
ěBeyond Sandy Ridgeî is one womanís journey of survival, a collection of her most intimate desires and her passion for a man named Joel. Many of those Lizzie loved are forever silent. Picking up in 1964, where ěCarolina Rainî left off, and continuing into 1867, the novel works well as a stand-alone read as well as a continuation of the first book.
Nancy Brewer is from North Carolina, where she attended Carolina School of Holistic Medicine in Chapel Hill. Her grandmother was a nurse and her great-grandmother a mid-wife from Stanly County. Brewer is also a history re-enactor and storyteller, which gives her a window for understanding the emotions and lifestyles of the people she writes about. That, combined with fascinating family stories and countless hours of research, is what makes her works of historical fiction come to life. The authorís immeasurable creativity and soft poetic style will captivate the reader from the very beginning. Her first book in this series, ěCarolina Rain,î has been used in schools in the local area.
Literary Bookpost is located at 110 South Main Street in Downtown Salisbury. For additional information about this event, call 704- 630-9788 or visit www.literarybookpost.com.
