I just found out on my friend Patricia Garcia’s blog, that one of the most wonderful books I’ve read the past few years, is on sale from August 26 through August 31, 2016.
“And the Whippoorwill sang”, written by Micki Peluso. Use the chance!
My friend, writer Micki Peluso, author of ‘And The Whippoorwill Sang’, published a blog post about Christmas. I find it interesting, informative and educational. And of course it does match the current time spirit.
Have a peek. I’m sure you’ll find it just as great as I do.
This is a reflection of the Christmases of today as compared with the past. Christmas; Past and Present
T’ was the night before Christmas and all through the Mall, last minute
shoppers scurried from store to store; short on patience and with little
evidence of the holiday spirit of love. The only ones smiling were the store owners and the costumed Santa, who gets paid to be jolly.

Mick Peluso is the author of …And the Whippoorwill Sang—an outstanding memoir:
“Micki Peluso takes readers along on her journey through life as she deals with the tragedy of the imminent death of one of her six children in a story that will bring tears—not only of immeasurable sadness—but also those wonderful tears of the joys and hilarity of a family’s life.

Micki Peluso, a writer and dear friend, out of the State of New York, wrote her first book after her daughter met her untimely death, which was caused by a drunken driver. However, And The Whippoorwill Sang is more than a book detailing the loss surrounding the suffering of her family and herself as a mother. It is a short chronicle of the golden age when women’s rights were still practically unacknowledged, and Gloria Steinem was slowly becoming a household word.

I have read the book, and I have re-read certain chapters several times because Micki has a way of putting words on paper that make you laugh even though you may want to cry.
And The Whippoorwill Sang is being offered at a reduced price this week. If you haven’t read it, it…
