Book Blurb Friday #37

It’s Book Blurb Friday #37. Check out Book Blurb Guru Lisa Ricard Claro’s blog to play BBF. Basically you write a book blurb based on the photo (that being the cover of the book) and you must do it in 150 words or less. This week’s beautiful photo cover is by Kathy Matthews.

Wasn’t sure I’d fit this in with NaNo chomping at my heels, but here it is in 105 words.


Obermoeller recognizes the gentle current of Sunshine River. Everyone thought—impossible. Just three years old when she nearly drowned, no one can believe that she knew the exact spot and every detail where it occurred. Her mother never forgot.

Fifty-three years later after never having been told what happened or where, Obermoeller discovers she remembers it all the instant she sees the scene at Sunshine River. Follow Obermoeller on her incredible journey as she relives exact details of that fateful day.

Obermoeller’s mother was quoted, “I’ll never forget my daughter’s words after they pulled her from the river five miles down, ‘Momma, God carried me.’”


  1. Oh wow, now I'd have to buy this book. For sure. Compelling blurb.

  2. Ooh--chillingly lovely! Your heels kicked NaNo in the teeth with this one!

  3. Awesome! This is your best one yet. Obermoeller's story is compelling, and I'd love to read the book. The mom's quote sucked me right in. And of course I'm always in for an Obermoeller story!

  4. Lynn! Is this a true story? I will make a wonderful book. I would love to read the backstory and sidetrips that it might take.

    Congrats on how well you are doing on your NaNoWriMo (tha name always reminds me of Mork ... remember Mork and Mindy?).
    You rock!

  5. Thank you ladies - guess NaNo is helping a bit with my writing... maybe... and Kathy, no it is not a true story, but I'm glad that it reads like it is a true story. And that's funny about the Mork and Mindy thing--it does sound like that!


Thanks for commenting. I don't always comment back, but I do appreciate it.
