As the daughter of an expert astrologer, Wilamena Carlisle knows that the truth lies within the stars. So when she discovers a rare planetary alignment, she is forced to tackle her worst astrological fear – The Fifth House of Relationships and Love. But Wil must decide whether a cosmically doomed love is worth rejecting her mother’s legacy, when she falls for a sensitive guitar player hailing from the wrong side of the chart.
Debut author Darcy Woods explores love in all its complexities and how to best honor the loved ones who have passed before us, in a novel packed with both humor and heart.
Sometimes in life, you simply know. Call it instinct. Intuition. Kismet. Whatever the name, whatever the explanation, it’s that unwavering, soul-deep certainty that whatever it is – a cute boy, a book, a movie, or even an adorable pair of shoes – is the perfect one for you. This is precisely the sort of feeling I experienced when I discovered Darcy Wood’s forthcoming 2016 debut for the very first time. Summer Of Supernovas is a contemporary novel that seems nothing short of magical, mystical, and absolutely unforgettable, tackling the complex intricacies of relationships, both familial and romantic, and the vast spectrum of human emotion. With glowing reviews from authors and friends whose opinion I trust implicitly, like Laurie Flynn (“A book like this — a book this funny, heartwarming, and completely one-of-a-kind unique — comes around about as often as a supernova.“) and Shannon Parker (“It is a rare book that has me laughing while simultaneously contemplating the rules of my heart, but that is the gift of Summer Of Supernovas.“), there’s little doubt that my love affair with this novel was written in the stars.
