Dear friends of Tyndale fiction,

On January 11th, 2022, Carol-Award-winning author Melanie Dobson will be releasing a new WWII historical/contemporary timeslip novel titled The Winter Rose.  (For more info, please see the attached Media Alert.)

Would you be interested in helping us get the word out about Melanie’s new book? If so, might you be willing to:

  1. Read and review the book,
  2. Feature the attached Author Q&A on your site,
  3. Host a giveaway,
  4. Request a custom feature of some sort (perhaps answers to some extra, custom interview questions, or a short original article), or
  5. Do all (or some) of the above?

We would be immensely grateful for any help you’d be able to provide!

If you’d like to take a look at the book and haven’t already received an ARC, I’ve included a NetGalley widget for The Winter Rose, below. Print ARCs are also available upon request. If possible, we’d hope for any features to be published on or near the release date in January (but of course, we’d take a feature whenever you might be able to fit one in).

Please let me know what you might be interested in, and if there are any questions I can answer for you.


The Winter Rose

In this gripping WWII time-slip novel from the author whose books have been called “propulsive” and a “must-read” (Publishers Weekly), Grace Tonquin is an American Quaker who works tirelessly in Vichy France to rescue Jewish children from the Nazis. After crossing the treacherous Pyrénées, Grace returns home to Oregon with a brother and sister whose parents were lost during the war. Though Grace and her husband love Élias and Marguerite as their own, echoes of Grace’s past and trauma from the Holocaust tear the Tonquin family apart.
More than fifty years after they disappear, Addie Hoult arrives at Tonquin Lake, hoping to find the Tonquin family. For Addie, the mystery is a matter of life and death for her beloved mentor Charlie, who is battling a genetic disease. Though Charlie refuses to discuss his ties to the elusive Tonquins, finding them is the only way to save his life and mend the wounds from his broken past.

Thanks, all!
