So, I love the title of Michael King's new book, A Thousand Sleepless Nights. It is the love story of Jim and Nena Harding, who overcome many obstacles in order to be together. Jim is from the wrong side of the tracks and Nena an heiress to a magnificent horse farm in Virginia, but the times are changing and profits are slipping. Nena's love for her farm and desire to preserve it takes precedence over raising her children and relationships are broken as they grow up and move away.
Now Nena has cancer. Is it too late for mending fences?
I liked Michael King's writing style, kind of a Nicolas Sparks vibe (without the eye rolling from me)...
Michael is also a cancer survivor which gives this novel that authentic, heart wrenching, reality of the fight for life and legacy.
My previous post gives the publisher's information. :)
