free copy of Stray Affections



I enjoy Charlene Ann Baumbich's Dearest Dorothy novels for their sense of humor since a giggle or a laugh is a great gift to provoke from a reader. Her new book "Stray Affections" is deep, tugs at heart strings, and gives readers plenty of smiles.
This novel begins with Cassandra buying a mysterious snow globe. She’s enjoying some shopping time, with husband Ken at home tending their brood of four young boys, when she’s utterly charmed by the one-of-a kind globe containing figures of three dogs and a little girl with hair the color of her own. She can’t resist taking the unique globe home– even if means wrestling another shopper for it!
The beautiful snowglobe sparks memories for Cassie, of her beloved Grandpa Wonky, the stray she rescued as a child, and the painful roots of her combative relationship with her mother, “Bad Betty” Kamrowski.
A happy touch is that "Bad Betty" charmingly begins to mellow. After a strange–flurrious, as Cassie deems it–moment happens with the remarkable snowglobe, Cassie and the people she loves are swirled into a tumultuous, yet grace-filled, and life-changing journey.
With the quirky, close-knit Midwestern small-town feel that made Charlene Ann Baumbich’s acclaimed Dearest Dorothy novels so popular, Stray Affections invites you to experience the laughter and the healing of second chances.
The author reads in a fun manner and gives readers some insights into this book with her video here:
