Franklin resident and author, Ashley Herring Blake will be reading from her new book –Suffer Love at Parnassus Books tonight at 6:30pm.
In the book Suffer Love, 17-year-old Hadley St. Clair’s life changed the day she came home to a front door covered in slips of paper, each of them shouting the ugly truth about her father: Now, Hadley just wants her father to leave her alone. In fact, she wants everyone to stop expecting her to slip back into her old life, where a father is someone she can trust and romance is something that happens to real people, not just to characters in fairy tales. She knows how to handle herself–trust no one and feel nothing. She falls into a steady routine of ignoring her parents and messing around with nameless boys who help her forget.
Then she meets Sam, the new boy with a broken family and a little sister who adores him. Despite her efforts to shut him out, something in Sam feels familiar and even exciting. She might be willing to take a risk for a guy like him. Sam wants Hadley just as much as she wants him, even though he knows he shouldn’t. Because Sam has a secret that could ruin everything; a secret he’s been keeping since the day somebody taped dozens of papers to the St. Clair’s front door.
Be sure to stop by Paranassus Books located at 3900 Hillsboro Road, Nashville for the launch party of Suffer Love from 6:30-8pm.
