July 1st through midnight July 6th only
Planning to stick close to home this weekend? Here’s your chance to purchase the paperback edition of Since You Went Away, Part One: Winter for only $4.99. Normally $7.95 on Amazon (and $14.95 in bookstores), this is a super duper extra special deal.
What better way to celebrate the July 4th holiday than immersing yourself in this unputdownable story of a modern-day military family? Featuring a deeply human cast of characters and written in McCarthy’s trademark epistolary style, the book is easy to read in small chunks—but don’t be surprised if you find yourself reading late into the night to find out what happens next in the lives of the fictional Mahoney family.
Set against the backdrop of the Iraq war in the year 2008, Since You Went Away portrays in intimate detail the effects of a distant war on the families and returning veterans at home. At once poignant and darkly funny, it is a fly-on-the-wall account of the innermost workings of a military family—their fears and hopes, their struggles and disappointments, their unexpected moments of joy and comfort and laughter.
“Touching, funny, thought-provoking, heartwarming, engrossing, and humorous” are just a few of the words readers use to describe McCarthy’s latest series. And now you can join in the fun for less than the cost of a venti iced matcha latte.
This offer applies to the paperback edition of Part One, this weekend only, exclusively through Amazon.
