Good book to read!

This is not something I normally do and being a relative of my hubby wrote this book, I’m going to take liberty and brag some.

First let me tell you a little about the author, Ted Blanchard. He was born in Presque Isle, Maine and still resides there. While in high school he took up pen pal writing with great enjoyment. There was a time when he was writing as many as twenty-three letters monthly to his pen pal friends. Sixty years later and he still corresponds with one in England and one in Australia. Ted has written several short stories, this being his first novel.

The book is named “Laura” and is about a young man in the army awaiting his discharge. Anxious to return to his home state of Maine, he falls in love with an army officer’s wife. He does return to the hard work and life he loves in Northern Maine. Shortly after meets a beautiful woman and his life is somewhat normal until—an old army buddy comes visiting.

The description of Maine’s wilderness can only be written by someone who has a deep love and knowledge of the area. “Laura” is a 206 page soft bound book published by Monkey Publishing in Caribou, Maine and can be found for sale on their web site.

If you enjoy a good story and Maine life, you certainly should enjoy this novel. It is well suited to all ages, being male or female.
