The Crossroads By Annie Rose Welch
Y’all know how much I love Annie Rose Welch (I think she is the author I post about the most on my blog) and I am always so excited to share her books with you. Sometimes she comes up with something special for my readers over here at Not Everyone’s Mama and it is so much fun! Today we have the playlist for The Crossroads! Annie’s books always give me this musical poetic feeling, even when she isn’t mentioning a song. I know how important music is to her when she is writing and it’s always neat to get a little peak behind the pages of each book. Last month she shared a song for each character in The Crossroads. Check it out when you are done with this post.
Thank you Annie!
How do you get there, darlin’? Well, na’, you start by taking Brighten Place. Follow that road all the way down to Marigny Street. After you travel a little distance you’ll come to an old Red Dirt Road, and that road will take you even further, to Lotus Blossom Lane, but you’ve already been that way. Na’ you’re exactly where you should be, darlin’. You’ve arrived at The Crossroads of your life.
Gabriel Roberts is the most famous movie star in the world. He has everything one man could ever want. He has everything except the one thing he feels will fulfill his purpose and complete his life.
Raphael Rose is dying of pneumonia. As he waits on the waning clock of mortality to chime, he has a story to share. One of star-crossed lovers he has never lost hope for.
Two doors down, Madam Catalina has her own story – a shocking past, a love of a lifetime left undone.
Locked behind the doors of Charity Hospital during Hurricane Evangeline, the tangling of souls has unraveled and left each of them at the crossroads of their life. And in the end, whichever road they chose will lead them home.
THE CROSSROADS PLAYLIST
If you do not use Spotify you should! A lot of authors are putting playlists up for their books. It’s an awesome way to follow along with the book AND introduce you to music you might not have heard before. I use it all the time, on my computer when I’m blogging, on my phone in the car, and on my iPad or phone when I’m in the house. I’m usually listening to Annie’s playlists or one that I have made out of various songs that I love to listen to while blogging. Find out more on how to use it in this post. I’ve linked up to a lot of playlists in that post, including all of Annie’s except for this new here above.
Born and raised in New Orleans, Annie has a habit of shortening her words and telling long stories. She speaks with a southern flair and cooks with it too. At the tender age of twenty- one, she hitched up her wagons (took her first plane ride) and moved out west to the big shake (California). Her writing career began one sleepless night when she imagined a gorgeous woman and a man with maniacal hair floating above her like lightening bugs falling from the sky. Curious about them, their story, and why they were floating around in her head, she sat down and penned (typed) her first novel, Marigny Street. A dream come true for her, she hasn’t stopped writing since. She loves a damn good love story, always has, no matter what the genre. She is particularly moved by imperfect love that in its own unique way is perfect, the notion of love at first sight, soul mates, and things that are generally out of the norm.
When she’s not writing she enjoys dabbling in photography and finding new, inspirational music to add to her collection. She currently (still) resides in the big shake (although her southern roots are calling her home) with her husband, daughter, and their two peculiar dogs, Boudreaux and Tabasco (who, call her crazy, bark with an accent).
