Spotlight and Giveaway: Postcards for a Songbird

Today we are featuring Postcards for a Songbird by Rebekah Crane. Thanks to KTK Publicity, we have THREE copies to give away!

Everyone eventually leaves Wren Plumley. First it was her mother, then her best friend, and then her sister. Now living with only her cop father and her scattered dreams, Wren feels stranded, like a songbird falling in a storm.

When Wilder, a sickly housebound teen, moves in next door, Wren finally finds what she’s always wanted—a person who can’t leave. But a chance meeting with Luca, the talkative, crush-worthy boy in her driver’s ed class, has Wren wondering if maybe she’s too quick to push people away. Soon, Wren finds herself caught between the safety of a friendship and a love worth fighting for.

Wren starts to dream again. But when postcards begin arriving from her sister, Wren must ultimately confront why her mother left fourteen years before and why her sister followed in her footsteps. For her new life to take flight, Wren will have to reconcile the heartbreaking beauty of lost dreams and the beautiful heartbreak of her new reality.

Inspiring, charming, and quick to become a favorite summer read, POSTCARDS FOR A SONGBIRD tugs at your heart strings as you root for Wren to understand that she’s not alone and fully embrace the love and friendship that surrounds her.

A friend moved across the country earlier this year and she sent a postcard with the scenery of the area of where she is now located. Beautiful.

I would love to receive a letter or a postcard since it is meaningful and special. When I went on vacation when I was younger I used to send postcards to family and friends since it was the only way to communicate. I haven't received a postcard or letter for many years.

My book buddy sent me a birthday card on August 8 for my 76th birthday with a gift certificate from Amazon for the ebook of Under Currents by Nora Roberts! Already read this Domestic Abuse thriller, so good!

I really never send/receive letters or postcards, although this sounds really nice.
However, I did receive a Save The Date for my sister's wedding not too long ago. It was a personalized (but mass-printed) postcard, and on the back my sister had written out a brief note for me-- as well as both of our addresses! Must have taken her some time to finish all of those. :)

I received a thank you card in the mail most recently. It's been a long while since I've received a letter. Both my aunt and mother in law used to write often but they've both gotten "with the times" and now send emails!
