BAGGY PANTS & BOOTEES - Cover Reveal


Here it is!  The new cover for my debut novel Baggy Pants & Bootees 
 - now available as an e-book and coming out in  paperback soon.





When war baby Sophie joins the macho world of 1960s journalism shes determined to prove that shes one of the boys. But her career is threatened by a phone call from her estranged mother setting Sophie on a quest to uncover the secret of her birth.

Was her father the all-American soldier she dreamt of when she was a child, or someone far more sinister? This is the story the ambitious reporter was destined to write.

Helped by the charming but mysterious David, Sophie uncovers a heartbroken wartime orphan, a GI romance and a terrifying rape that leads to an innocent mans court martial and finds clues to her own unhappy childhood.

Torn between her secret love for Steve, the newspapers most eligible bachelor, and her desire to know who she really is, Sophie follows David to search for her father. Only when faced with the startling truth can she accept the tragedy of love, loss and betrayal, and begin a very different kind of future.

Congratulations, Marilyn! It sounds like a really good story. I am going to treat myself to a copy when the paperback comes out. I’m pretty old-fashioned and still prefer to hold a book in my hands, especially when reading in bed. I’m just catching up on all your posts. I may not comment on them all but I do read them. Have a good weekend, Barbara.
