Book Spotlight: The Last Summer at Chelsea Beach by Pam Jenoff (Plus Giveaway!!!) - GIVEAWAY CLOSED

Next week, Pam Jenoff's latest book, The Last Summer at Chelsea Beach, comes out (July 28th!) and this was one of my must-gets at BEA this year. I've been looking forward to reading this since I first heard about it and you can look for my review here next Tuesday on release day! I had the please of meeting Pam twice this year - at BEA and a few weeks earlier at another book signing. She's delightful and I have really enjoyed the books I've read of hers. In anticipation of release day, I have a giveaway for you - see below for details (and this one is open to US and Canada!!!). 

Title: The Last Summer at Chelsea Beach   
Author: Pam Jenoff        
Published: July 2015, MIRA  
Format: Paperback, 384 pages    

Summer 1941  
Young Adelia Monteforte flees fascist Italy for America, where she is whisked away to the shore by her well-meaning aunt and uncle. Here, she meets and falls for Charlie Connally, the eldest of the four Irish-Catholic boys next door. But all hopes for a future together are soon throttled by the war and a tragedy that hits much closer to home. 

Grief-stricken, Addie flees—first to Washington and then to war-torn London—and finds a position at a prestigious newspaper, as well as a chance to redeem lost time, lost family…and lost love. But the past always nips at her heels, demanding to be reckoned with. And in a final, fateful choice, Addie discovers that the way home may be a path she never suspected.
