Book Release Spotlight and ARC Giveaway: Carry the One by Carol Anshaw

Back cover blurb: Carry the One begins in the hours following Carmen’s wedding reception, when a car filled with stoned, drunk, and sleepy guests accidentally hits and kills a girl on a dark country road. For the next twenty-five years, those involved, including Carmen and her brother and sister, connect and disconnect and reconnect with one another and their victim. As one character says, “When you add us up, you always have to carry the one.”

Through friendships and love affairs; marriage and divorce; parenthood, holidays, and the modest tragedies and joys of ordinary days, Carry the One shows how one life affects another and how those who thrive and those who self-destruct are closer to one another than we’d expect. This novel derives its power and appeal from the author’s exquisite use of language; her sympathy for her very recognizable, flawed characters; and her persuasive belief in the transforming forces of time and love.

Carry the One is being released on Tuesday, and I have an ARC to give away to one of my lucky readers:

~ To enter, simply leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. PST, Friday, March 16, 2012. On Saturday the 17th, I will use to draw the winner’s name.

Good luck!
