Historical author Kathleen Y’Barbo has written another delightful novel, Beloved Castaway
, in which “a stormy romance rages along the Florida Keys.” Mistaken identities, broken families, forbidden romances, struggling faith, and adventure on the high seas come together to keep the reader turning the pages from beginning to end. Seldom do I finish the last page of a book with happy shivers running down my spine and tears in my eyes. Beloved Castaway
is one such book.
If you would like to win a copy of Beloved Castaway,
leave a comment in response to Kathleen's formula for a successful historical novel:
A successful historical novel is a combination of good research, good writing,
and great plotting. If any of these things are missing, the book will fall flat.
In my opinion, a great plot will trump the writing and research, but it’s got to
be really great.
