Wabash Valley author releases latest novel, ‘Jasper’s Gift’

TERRE HAUTE — Wabash Valley author Jan Tilley and Spenbrook Publishing announce the release of Tilley’s latest novel, “Jasper’s Gift.”

It is the highly anticipated sequel to her international, best-selling novel, “Coming About.”

“I wrote this book because so many of my readers requested it. It was actually a pleasure to go back and revisit these characters again. It felt like I was visiting old friends,” Tilley said.

Tilley also infused the artistry of Max Ehrmann into the novel by beginning each chapter with an excerpt from his famous poem, “Desiderata.”

The book jacket states: “Several years ago, Jasper Trimble left behind an inheritance which sent best friends Rachel and Sadie on an unforgettable journey, completely transforming their lives. When Rachel had felt that all hope was gone, Jasper’s gift gave her a second chance to create a new life.

“Rachel and Sadie have been there for each other through the good times and the bad. Just when their dreams were finally coming true, they are confronted with the blinding truth that there’s no such thing as a perfect life.

“Their entire world is turned upside down when the unexpected soon becomes a harsh reality, forcing them to lean on each other like never before. But, nothing could have prepared them for what was yet to come.

“Jasper’s one small act of kindness left a living legacy, touching lives in more ways than they could have ever imagined.  

“Their journey begins today…”

To date, Tilley has had more than 50,000 copies of her books downloaded worldwide. All four of her novels are available in book and Kindle formats at
