This week's Friday Fiction Feature is Tapestry by Beth Duke.
There is so much about TAPESTRY that sets it apart from typical Women’s Fiction. First and foremost, it’s about family heritage; about the importance of the ones who came before us and the ones who love us now.
It’s uniquely suited to 2020 because the book incorporates both African-American and Native American history that will be surprising and memorable to readers. It is a beautiful story of how humans are all connected―there are threads that connect us―in so many ways. Through past, present, and future; through blood, friends, strangers; through the earth, through stories, through memories.
TAPESTRY is an Award-Winning Finalist in the Women's Fiction category of the 2020 International Book Awards, The Bronze Medal Winner in Southern Fiction in Publisher's Weekly 2020 Readers' Choice Awards, and a Five Star Readers' Favorite Award Winner. It is a popular choice among book clubs across the United States, offering a great deal of thoughtful discussion along with a rich story.
Here’s a quick synopsis:
Twenty-one-year-old Skye Willis lives in Eufaula, Alabama, a tourist mecca of stately homes and world-class bass fishing. Her childhood friends are either stuck at dead ends or have moved on to accomplish Big Things.
Beth Dial Duke is an Amazon #1 Best Selling author and the recipient of short story awards on two continents. She is eyeing the other five.
Beth lives in the mountains of her native Alabama with her husband, one real dog, and one strictly ornamental dog. She loves reading, writing, and not arithmetic. Baking is a hobby, with semi-pro cupcakes and amateur macarons a specialty. And puns―the worse, the better. Travel is her other favorite thing, along with joining book clubs for discussion. If a personal visit isn't possible, Zoom or Skype are.
