AN EVERYDAY HERO by Laura Trentham – Spotlight & Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED

 

From award-winning author Laura Trentham comes AN EVERYDAY HERO (St.Martin’sPress)  an emotionally layered novel about redemption, second chances and discovering that life is worth fighting for.

At thirty, Greer Hadley never expected to be forced home to Madison, Tennessee with her life and dreams of being a songwriter up in flames. To make matters worse, a series of bad decisions and even crappier luck lands her community service hours at a nonprofit organization that aids veterans and their families. Greer cannot fathom how she’s supposed to use music to help anyone deal with their trauma and loss when the one thing that brought her joy has failed her.

When Greer meets fifteen-year-old Ally Martinez, her plans to stay detached and do as little as possible get thrown away. New to town and dealing with the death of her father in action, she hides her emotions behind a mask of bitterness and sarcasm, but Greer is able to see past it and recognizes pieces of who she once was in Ally. The raw and obvious talent she possesses could take her to the top and Greer vows to make sure life’s negativities don’t derail Ally’s potential.

After Greer is assigned a veteran to help, she’s not surprised Emmett Lawson, the town’s golden boy, followed his family’s legacy. What leaves her shocked is the shell of a man who believes he doesn’t deserve anyone’s help. A breakthrough with Ally reminds Greer that no one is worth giving up on. So she shows up one day with his old guitar, and meets Emmett’s rage head on with her stubbornness. When a situation with Ally becomes dire, the two of them must become a team to save her—and along the way they might just save themselves too.

  5. Well you could say I raised my hero…My 18 yr old son is a full time firefighter at one fire station and he volunteers at our local fire station. He started out being a jr. firefighter in 9th grade and realized that was his passion so they sent him to every training and class all through high school so as soon as he turned 18 he could be hired. It amazes me to see him help others the way that he does and I’m so proud of him.

  15. My everyday hero is my grandmother, who unfortunately is no longer alive. She had 9 children (3 sets of twins!) and when her children were ages 2-14, she found her husband deceased. She was a single mother of 9, running the family farm and working multiple jobs, long before most women considered being single moms. Her strength, patience, and faith was awe-inspiring.

  16. My spouse! This past August he had sudden open heart surgery for a rare tumor within the atrium which is usually not discovered until autopsy. Since then he’s made life style changes even though this had nothing to do with a tumor forming. He works out daily, eats healthier, agave up alcohol, and stopped working 12-15 hour days. So amazed by him!

  17. My everyday hero is my husband. Much to his chagrin, he had to retire early due to a head injury. He would like nothing more than to be working. He’s making the best of it, though, by doing so many things for me as I still have to work

  18. My everyday hero is my father, who passed away 11 years ago. I have been increasingly appreciating all he did, and put up with, over the years. He was the person most loyal to me, even more so than my mother. When he was dying, my mother said to me, “You’re losing your best friend”. I accepted what she said at that time, and knew that she was “probably correct”. Only now do I know without a doubt that he really was my best friend.
