Welcome as Divertir Publishing celebrates our Summer of Romance. To us, romance means believing in the impossible, striving for discovery, and never giving up no matter the cost. It in inherent. Love fulfills that longing in us to be accepted by another – to be seen through another’s eyes and found perfect. Summer is that time for romance and the unexpected.
The Chosen Village, by Sarah Welsh, is our first romance title and we’re giving away five copies to start your summer off properly!
Savina Luciano, a waitress from a small, quirky Italian village, disenchanted with village life and desperately seeking change, finds herself unexpectedly involved in a string of mysterious events that take the normally sleepy village by surprise. Having spent the majority of her life feeling unsatisfied, insecure, and cynical about her seemingly insignificant life, Savina is caught off guard when two miracles come knocking at her door. She is forced to truly examine her beliefs and ideals, confront her wavering faith, and save a village on the verge of tearing itself in two over disagreements concerning fair trade practices between businesses on the east and west sides of town. Somehow, through it all, Savina realizes that her plans to leave her birth place and seek a more exciting life are outweighed by the magic and mystery hidden right under her nose. Were the miracles an elaborate hoax to bring tourists to the sleepy village? Will Savina survive the miracle that leaves her on the verge of death? Finally, can deceit, resentment, miracles, and love coexist in The Chosen Village?
