Following is the podcast from that evening.
AuthorsLive@GreenwichLibrary presents local writer Beatriz Williams on Thursday, May 10, at 7 p.m. in the Cole Auditorium. She will discuss her debut novel, Overseas, set during World War I France and modern day New York.
Julian Ashford, a British officer in the trenches of the Western Front, is
waylaid in the town square by Kate, a beautiful, young American. Julian's never
seen her before, but she has information about the reconnaissance mission he's
about to embark on. Who is she, and why did she track him down in Amiens?
New York, 2007: A young Wall Street analyst, Kate Wilson learned to rely on logic and cynicism. So why does she fall so desperately in love with Julian Laurence, a handsome British billionaire with a mysterious past?
In a starred review, Publishers Weekly called it "a delicious story about the ultimate romantic fantasy."
Kirkus Reviews said Overseas is "a full-throated love story...with [Williams'] gift for humor, snappy dialogue and swooning romance, there's plenty to enjoy..."
"Overseas is a heady blend of wit, charm and romantic sizzle all wrapped around a tantalizing mystery that will constantly surprise and delight readers," said New York Times bestselling author, Anne Fortier.
Williams graduated from Stanford University and received her MBA from Columbia University. A former corporate and communications strategy consultant, Williams lives in Connecticut with her husband and their four children.
