Patry Francis Day

Today, over 300 bloggers, including bestsellers, Emmy winners, movie makers, and publishing houses have come together to talk about The Liar’s Diary by Patry Francis . You can read the history behind this momentous occasion here.

Still with me? Then you’re probably wondering why in the world would all of these people pull together like this. Well the short answer is because she is fighting with cancer and is too sick to promote her own book, so all of these compassionate people are pitching in, to make sure her debut novel gets the recognition it deserves.

Please click on the links and lend your support. Feel free to pick up the torch and spread the word. Together we can make a difference in the life of a truly remarkable lady.

Here is a blurb:

Answering the question of what is more powerful—family or friendship? this debut novel unforgettably shows how far one woman would go to protect either.

They couldn’t be more different, but they form a friendship that will alter both their fates. When Ali Mather blows into town, breaking all the rules and breaking hearts (despite the fact that she is pushing forty), she also makes a mark on an unlikely family. Almost against her will, Jeanne Cross feels drawn to this strangely vibrant woman, a fascination that begins to infect Jeanne’s “perfect” husband as well as their teenaged son.

At the heart of the friendship between Ali and Jeanne are deep-seated emotional needs, vulnerabilities they have each been recording in their diaries. Ali also senses another kind of vulnerability; she believes someone has been entering her house when she is not at home—and not with the usual intentions. What this burglar wants is nothing less than a piece of Ali’s soul.

When a murderer strikes and Jeanne’s son is arrested, we learn that the key to the crime lies in the diaries of two very different women . . . but only one of them is telling the truth. A chilling tour of troubled minds, The Liar’s Diary signals the launch of an immensely talented new novelist who knows just how to keep her readers guessing.

It really warms the heart, doesn't it? This is a truly great show of humanity at its best.

I agree--and I've been feeling kinda down about humanity lately. But ya know, I like my blogging community. Good people.
