At First Light by Vanessa Lafaye #CoverReveal @VanessaLafaye @orionbooks

I am delighted and honoured to host the Cover Reveal for the new book by Vanessa Lafaye here on Random Things today.

'At First Light' will be published by Orion on 1 June 2017, and doesn't that cover look wonderful? I am a huge fan of this author, her debut novel 'Summertime' is one of those books that I recommend to everyone.

At First Light by Vanessa Lafaye
Published by Orion - 1 June 2017

1993, Key West, Florida. When a Ku Klux Klan official is shot in broad daylight, all eyes turn to the person holding the gun: a 96-year-old Cuban woman who will say nothing except to admit her guilt.

1919. Mixed-race Alicia Cortez arrives in Key West exiled in disgrace from her family in Havana. At the same time, damaged war hero John Morales returns home on the last US troop ship from Europe. As love draws them closer in this time of racial segregation, people are watching, including Dwayne Campbell, poised on the brink of manhood and struggling to do what's right. And then the Ku Klux Klan comes to town...
Inspired by real events, At First Light weaves together a decades-old grievance and the consequences of a promise made as the sun rose on a dark day in American history.

In First Light is available to pre-order now and I know that existing fans of this author will be as excited as I am at the thought of another story from such a fabulous writer.
If by some strange chance you haven't yet read Vanessa Lafaye's first novel, Summertime. Do check out my review here on Random Things

Vanessa Lafaye was born in Tallahassee and raised in Tampa, Florida, where there were hurricanes most years. 
She first came to the UK in 1987 looking for adventure, and found it. After spells of living in Paris and Oxford, she now lives in Marlborough, Wiltshire, with her husband and three furry children. 
Vanessa leads the local community choir, and music and writing are big parts of her life.
