Close enough for me, anyway! I just got notification The Distant Trees won the Science Fiction category of the Green Festival Bookfair! I’m sure the competition was fierce and the field immense, yet the dark horse got to the wire first…I suppose it’s apparent the Kentucky Derby just ran. Nontheless, I needed a little validation and this win is a great one.
The pictures are of the Keukenhof Gardens in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Whenever I think of green, I think of Keukenhof. Millions of tulips (and some other flowers) of every shape and hue arranged artfully, with clever sculptures and seating dispersed throughout. Is it any wonder that the heroine of The Distant Trees is a Dutch girl? Hint, Hint, the buttons to the right will help you buy the book and read it so you can judge for yourself!
Congrats Mary for finally getting the recognition that your book deserves! What a great relief and cause for celebration! Elise would be proud 🙂
