The highly anticipated first novel of Tavistock, Ontario resident, Carolyn R. Parsons will be released Sunday, August 1, 2010.

In a delicately woven tapestry of the mystic and the earthy, Carolyn R. Parsons brings you into the lives of Christianna Cormack and Joe Indigo. Spanning two decades, it follows the couple from their first meeting until they are ripped apart by his misguided choices. When Christianna moves to Rare Moon Tickle, Newfoundland, she is informed that there are no secrets in a small town but she proves this adage wrong when destiny colludes with nature to ensure her inevitable reunion with Joe Indigo. Their love is now forbidden and one lie leads to another. As if suspended from cosmic puppet strings, Christianna cannot escape the web of secrecy and though she tries to live a normal, happy life, she discovers that fate has other ideas in The Secrets of Rare Moon Tickle.

Parsons, originally from Change Islands, NL, credits growing up in an isolated Island community as the number one contributing factor to her development as a writer. When asked why she wrote the story she said “I simply wanted to write a beautiful story. This was the story that begged to be written and Joe and Christianna were the characters I had to write about. I wanted to tell a love story that was unlike any other and I wanted it to be airy and spiritual and beautiful and poetic. I hope I’ve accomplished that.”

The Secrets of Rare Moon Tickle is the second published work of this author. Her first, a poetry book, called Wind Rhymes: Poetry from the Breeze was released on December 23, 2009.
