PORTLAND, OR; March 16, 2021— Unsolicited Press is proud to announce the immediate available of Anne Leigh Parrish's a winter night. Part psychological study and part romantic comedy, A Winter Night reintroduces the fictional Dugan family of upstate New York. Eldest daughter Angie may have found the man of her dreams, but has trouble believing a word he says. Told bluntly yet with tenderness and humor, A Winter Night brings Angie face-to-face with herself, her fears, and her ability to truly love.
Advance Praise for A Winter Night
"Anne Leigh Parrish does it once again. In A Winter Night, she brings her signature wisdom and wit to the world of Angie Dugan, a retirement home social worker who spends her days caring for others while yearning to be cared for herself. Part social commentary in the spirit of Jane Austen, and at moments romantic comedy in the vein of Susan Elizabeth Phillips, A Winter Night is ultimately a poignant and powerful novel that delves deep into the meaning of trust, understanding and forgiveness. Anne Leigh Parrish proves the rare writer who can make readers laugh hard while taking them on a serious journey--and this is a journey upon which readers most certainly wish to embark."--Jacob M. Appel, author of Millard Salter's Last Day.
“An outstanding, unsentimental portrait of family, love, and unavoidable hardships.” --From the KIRKUS REVIEW (https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/anne-leigh-parrish/a-winter-night/):
