"March to November" Event with Author Byddi Lee, March 21st at Florey's!
Florey's Books welcomes local author Byddi Lee as she discusses her new novel "March to November".
***Saturday, March 21st, 2-4pm***
About the Book:
Five people. Eight months. Lives end. Lives begin.
March to November navigates the entangled points of view of Tracey Duggan and her circle of friends and foes in modern-day Belfast, Ireland as they struggle with bereavement, broken marriages, broken dreams and broken psyches.
All Tracey wants is a normal life. All she has, however, is violence and betrayal from those closest to her.
Can Tracey escape the pattern of destructive relationships that plague her? Will her new boyfriend Tommy decide to be right or be happy? Will her sister-in-law Molly find the strength to deal with her new situation? Will her brother, Dermot let go of his past and man up to his mistakes? Can Dermot’s lover, Sheila really have it all?
Belfast is not the city of bombs and bullets of their childhood, but it’s still full of trouble for these five as they alternately walk, run and stumble along the road toward a shocking finale.
About the Author:
Byddi Lee grew up in Armagh, Ireland, and moved to Belfast to study biology at Queen’s University when she was 18. She made Belfast her home for twenty-one years, teaching science and writing for pleasure. In 2002 she took a a sabbatical from teaching and traveled around the world for two years, writing blogs about her adventures as she went.
She returned to Ireland in 2004 and resumed teaching. In 2008 she and her husband moved to San Jose, California, where she made writing a full-time career. After the publication of her short story, Death of a Seannachai, she decided it was time to write March to November.
