THE SECRET BOOK OF FLORA LEE will be one of the publishing world's blockbusters for 2023. Patti Callahan spent years in England researching the historical facts to write this heartrending, captivating tale.There are too many wonderful incentives to mention all, but the spellbinding story centers around the mystery of a magical place described only in a secret children's book; the disappearance of a child during World War Two and her possible emergence twenty years later; the older sister leaving her job at a cozy rare bookstore to take a job with Soothby's. And so much more.
This is a celebration of sisterhood and a fantastical read!

PATTI CALLAHAN (pictured below from our Wall of Fame) is a writer's writer. She's published seventeen books, including many New York Times best-sellers, but this Homegirl (she lives in Mountain Brook, Alabama) is usually present when a visiting author comes to town. She supports the sisters and brothers of her craft and frequently promotes their books more heavily than her own. She is definitely the "Miss Congeniality" of the trade, and one of the most popular in the business.
She is a New York Times bestseller, recipient of the Christy Award and the Harper Lee Award, co-host and creater of the overwhelmingly popular live web show and podcast, Friends and Fiction. Thank you Patti Callahan for signing our books.
