The Making of Nebraska Brown - Review

A couple times this week I mentioned how much I loved The Making of Nebraska Brown so finally after so many times saying that we get to my review from earlier this year.
Looking at it now I'm both surprised that I didn't write more and that I even managed to get that out.
It's definitely at the top of my list of books I need to reread.

The Making of Nebraska BrownThe Making of Nebraska Brown by Louise Caiola
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Published February 6th 2014 by Immortal Ink Publishing

The last thing eighteen-year-old Ann Leigh remembers is running from her boyfriend in a thick Nebraska cornfield. This morning she’s staring down a cool Italian sunrise, an entire continent from the life she once knew. The events of the eighteen months in between have inexplicably gone missing from her memory.
All at once she’s living with Tommy, an attractive, young foreigner asking for her continued love. Though he’s vaguely familiar, she recalls a boy named Shane in America who she reluctantly agreed to marry. Juggling a new world while her old one is still M.I.A is difficult enough without the terrifying movie scenes spinning a dizzy loop in her mind: glimpses of a devastating house fire, a romance gone wrong, an unplanned pregnancy, and a fractured family – each claiming to be part of who she once was – a girl and a past somehow discarded.

Louise Caiola Author Interview

As a young girl growing up on Long Island, Louise spent most of her allowance on Nancy Drew mysteries. She soon realized that one day, she might have a story of her own to tell. Maybe even more than one story.
Although motherhood took center stage in her life for many years, Louise went back to college after her children were older to study that which she knew deep down was her true passion; creative writing. She soon began to craft a collection of short stories which were published in the inspirational online magazine, FAITH HOPE AND FICTION.
Shortly thereafter, her first novel, Wishless, a contemporary YA, was
penned and ultimately released in 2011 .
After having her next novel, The Making of Nebraska Brown, picked up by Immortal Ink Publishing, Louise was invited to join their publishing team, where she is now working in editing, marketing  and acquisitions.
In the coming months Louise will have her two-book collection of short stories (Petit Fleurs and Vignettes) released through Immortal Ink. She also has two more full-length novels currently in various phases of production.
She invites you to subscribe to her mailing list to be privy to contests, giveaways and up-to-the-minute happenings.

Guest Post with Louise Caiola

As I mentioned yesterday, and will most likely mention again, The Making of Nebraska Brown is my one of my favorite books I've read this year so I just had to ask author Louise Caiola what inspired it.
 
But first:
