Booksigning – Tapestry: A Lowcountry Rapunzel

May 28, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Come on out and meet Sophia Alexander and get a copy of each of the first two award-winning books in her trilogy – Silk: Caroline’s Story AND the brand new release of Tapestry: A Lowcountry Rapunzel

The trilogy began with Silk: Caroline’s Story that released last summer. It’s 1899, and Caroline Corbett is ready for the twentieth century. She’s excited to find work and meet new people—but gets more than expected when a rough-hewn Lowcountry farmer and a small-town doctor both engage her affections.

The broad-shouldered, genial farmer is clear about his desires, and he’s there for her. The doctor is sophisticated, educated, and obviously the right choice—but sees no reason to dwell on certain realities. In trying to decide between them, Caroline fails to consider the girl Jessie. A young sociopath bent on her own way, Jessie Bell sees very good reasons to dredge up unpleasant realities—and to create new ones. Before long, this South Carolina landscape is riddled with the detritus of her intense jealousies, which have set astonishing and horrifying events into motion.

Tapestry released just two weeks ago and promises new adventures: If your stepmother were a sociopath, how would you know? And who would you turn to?

Life is not as ordinary as it seems for Gaynelle and Vivian, who only understand that the woman they now call ‘Mama’ is complicated and difficult to please. Is the romantic love that Gaynelle finds at a too-tender age going to last? And will Vivian uncover the truth about her parentage while recovering from a strange illness?

Rural South Carolina meets the Roaring 20’s in this tale of two sisters who face separation and trauma with the resilience of the young and find their way, despite everything.

Sophia Alexander is the mother of two college-age children and a number of manuscripts. Her character-driven historical fiction grips readers’ emotions and surprises them with unexpected twists. A full-time author with a passion for genealogy, she resides near the beautiful Southern city of Savannah, Georgia, but studied in the magnificent Pacific Northwest at Bastyr University, where she earned a doctorate in naturopathic medicine-and so her characters are often found swallowing decoctions or slathering on herbal salves. Her narratives have appeared in local anthologies, and she was awarded first place in the Savannah Authors 2017 Short Story Contest. Her first novel, Silk: Caroline’s Story, debuted Summer 2021 and garnered several accolades: awarded the IndieBRAG medallion, finalist in the Shelf Unbound 2021 Best Indie Book Awards, finalist in the category of historical fiction in the 2021 Next Generation Indie Book Awards, finalist in the category of Family Saga in the 2021 American Fiction Awards, and shortlisted for the 2021 Goethe Awards by Chanticleer International.
