SILVER MEDAL WINNER 2013 Global eBook Award for FictionHannah Spring thought her life was finally settling down. Her job was going great, her crazy
family was at a safe distance, and she was dating a man with
possibilities. Then her beloved grandmother died.
When Hannah leaves her comfortable lair behind to oversee the burial, she is pulled
into an inferno of events that burn away her safe life and challenge
even her vivid imagination. Like her grandmother before her, she longs
for a port in a storm, but it won’t happen without some wild nights.
“Wild Nights” is funny, thoughtful and deeply moving.
“What a page turner!”
“This is extraordinary work.”
