Takeover Thursday: "A Thousand Sleepless Nights" by Teri Harman (SLB Blog Tour)

Is love stronger than grief?

After the death of her Aunt Jetty, the woman who raised her, Matilda White packs a single suitcase, leaving behind her home, her small town in Kansas, and the man she's supposed to marry.

Henry Craig is a writer--if only he could find the right words. While sitting at a worn table in a Detroit library he sees a new librarian, Matilda, and suddenly the world erupts with words.

Six years later, Matilda and Henry load their young daughter Lucy, two antique typewriters, and a box of Henry's love letters into the car and head off to a new life. But one snowstorm and a slippery road take it all away. In that black moment of tragedy Matilda turns to Henry and says, "I wish I'd never met you."

The world goes dark.

Matilda wakes up in Jetty's dilapidated house with no memory of the last six years. Beside her on the bed, a book and an antique typewriter.

Henry wakes up in his familiar spot in the library, a book and old typewriter squatting on the table beside him. He can't remember the last six years.

Can words on a typed page, sent from one typewriter to another, push aside tar-thick pain and resurrect love?

  2. Teri, I checked out your FB page and it says: I will no longer be posting here or on any social media. See why in a quick post on the new site.

    So I went to your website page and I didn't see anything about why you don't post on social media. May I ask the reason that you don't post on any social media?
