One Fine Day

Suzanne Schiffman
Free sample

Joanna is adrift and suffers acutely from unfulfilled longings. She feels alienated from her family: her older sister ignores her, her mother drinks too much, and her father works for a company that makes Agent Orange. It’s the seminal year 1969, and the upheavals of that time are the backdrop: war, protests, sexual freedom, generational divisions, all brought vividly to life.

When she meets Lucien, a seductive French musician, he quickly becomes a risky obsession. She pursues him against all logic, and takes us on a wild ride in one misadventure after another, some comic, many out of her control, most of her own making. One Fine Day takes readers back to that era of turmoil, angst and self-seeking. But it’s a timeless story of love and loss, moving on, and growing up.

Wizard’s First Rule, the first novel by Terry Goodkind, was a phenomenon from the moment it was published by Tor Books in 1994, selling more than 100,000 copies in North America alone. It still sells more than 100,000 copies a year and has gone on to bestsellerdom in the United Kingdom and in more than twenty foreign translations as well as audiobook form.

It is now being developed as one of the most ambitious television miniseries of all time. Executive Producer Sam Raimi (director of the three Spider-Man movies), in collaboration with Disney/ABC, is creating a 22-episode adaptation of the book to be filmed in New Zealand.

Richard and Kahlan’s story unfolds over ten more novels, collectively known as the Sword of Truth series, concluding with Confessor in 2007. Placing Goodkind in the elite club of #1 New York Times bestselling authors, the series has sold more than twenty million copies to date worldwide.

In Wizard’s First Rule, Goodkind introduced the world to an ordinary forest guide, Richard Cypher, and the mysterious, powerful woman he comes to love, Kahlan Amnell. Learning his true identity, Richard accepts his destiny as the one man who can stop the bloodthirsty tyrant Darken Rahl. Hunted relentlessly, betrayed and alone, Kahlan calls upon Richard to reach beyond his sword and invoke something more noble within himself as the final confrontation with Darken Rahl looms.

The importance of Wizard’s First Rule is sourced in Goodkind taking on the toughest of all literary challenges: to tell an electrifying story of action, violence, and adventure that also makes people think, and that would influence the choices and actions of its readers.
