Hawthorne, NJ (Vocus) September 11, 2010
In anticipation of the 2010 Illinois Library Association Book Exhibit, author Eleanor Pat Denise introduces a riveting family saga overrun with politics, love, passion, and emotion. Readers will be mesmerized as they immerse themselves in a dramatic tapestry that unravels on Carlton Hill.
In this book, readers will be pulled in the world of the family of Jerome Carlton, the newly elected state senator.
On the outside, the Carlton appears to be an influential and powerful family. However, behind this picture perfect façade lies infidelity. Jerome has always been in love with Anna, the helper. His wife is also discreetly involved with the judge. Jerome’s young son, William, becomes witness to the family’s imperfections but chooses to remain quite throughout the entire ordeal.
The Carlton family soon overcomes a tragic accident that leaves the state senator badly injured and his wife dead. It is the Duchess, the senator’s mother, who becomes a pillar for the family and a guardian for William and his sister Margo while their father recovers. Over time, their lives returned to normal—with William continuing to bear witness to their father’s forbidden affair.
Soon, however, the adult William is caught up with his own emotions as Bethany, Anna’s daughter and his childhood friend, captures his heart. But how can their love blossom when both of their parents decide to uncover their affair and profess their vows? Carlton Hill tells all.
This book will be featured at this year’s Illinois Library Association Book Exhibit in Chicago, IL, on September 29-30, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
