Staying in with Patricia Asedegbega
Welcome to Linda’s Book Bag Patricia. Thank you for agreeing to stay in with me.
Tell me, which of your books have you brought along to share this evening and why have you chosen it?
Today, I´d like to share …to the moon and back with you all. I chose this book because though it has its share of suspense; it is different from my other novels and very special because the story takes place in the city I spent my childhood in.
(I love hearing about the pull of the places from our past Patricia.)
What can we expect from an evening in with …to the moon and back?
I loved this review about the book (because it sums up what I was trying to achieve when I wrote it), so I’d like to share part of it:
“Emotional Gripping Must Read…
Wow!!! To The Moon And Back is one emotional and gripping read, with relatable character’s who take you on a very personal and emotional journey that will leave your heart pounding, emotions running high and praying for things to work out for Anne and her life…”
(And now of course I want to read …to the moon and back even more – my TBR will never reduce!)
I hope that this book will help submerge the reader into a world that is not always easy to understand due to cultural differences; but still one rich in tradition. I tried to develop three dimensional characters that one can agree or not with, but somehow feel some degree of empathy for them. Above all, I do hope it provides an entertaining read, because as an author; one of my goals is for my reader to enjoy my work and relax with it.
(That’s one of the joys of reading Patricia – we can travel and meet new people and cultures without ever leaving home.)
What else have you brought along and why?
I am a foodie, so because of the setting of this story; I would recommend a plate of suya (hot and spicy barbecued meat which is very typical in Nigeria), some homemade bread (for those that can’t stand the heat) and of course…a glass of an excellent red Spanish wine.
(That sounds perfect. I love spicy food – though the wine is no good to me as it makes me ill so you will have to drink it all!)
