ANN ARBOR, MI:  Bywater Books is pleased to announce the signing of debut romance author, Jenn Alexander. “We’re honored to work with such a talented young writer. The Song of the Sea is a beautiful, tender romance, and we’re excited to bring it to our readers,” said publisher Salem West.

One woman must confront her grief as she falls in love with a struggling single-mom whose son reminds her of the child she lost.

The ocean has always been a place of freedom for Lisa Whelan, and when her newborn son passes away, she returns to her family home by the sea to seek solace from her grief. She doesn’t expect to meet anyone, and is caught off guard by the attraction she feels for Rachel, the cute waitress and part-owner of a local restaurant. But, the spark is dampened, when Lisa realizes that Rachel has a young son.

Rachel Murray has worked hard to build a life for herself and her son, but raising Declan hasn’t been without its challenges. Each day when Rachel picks him up from school, she says a silent prayer that he will be waiting for her in his classroom, and not in the principal’s office . . . again. Her son’s behavior has grown increasingly disruptive, and Rachel is at a loss at how to help him.

In spite of her grief, Lisa finds herself drawn to both Rachel and Declan. She wants to keep her emotions at bay, though— to keep from drowning in grief and from falling in love—but both are a tidal wave, washing over her, sweeping her off her feet. No, Lisa won’t fall in love with anyone, especially a beautiful, compelling woman whose son is a constant reminder of the child she lost. Or will she?

JENN ALEXANDER was born and raised in Edmonton, Canada. In 2017 she graduated with an M.S. in Counseling from the University of North Texas, and has since returned to Canada, where she is trying to reacclimatize to the frozen north. Jenn is a 2018 graduate of the the Golden Crown Literary Society’s Writing Academy, for which she was the year’s recipient of the Sandra Moran Scholarship. She lives with her dog, Delia, and her cat, Molly, both of whom try their best to distract her when she writes. And, when she’s not writing, Jenn spends her time playing the drums, skiing, or looking for adventure.

Her debut romance novel, The Song of the Sea, will be published in the summer of 2019.
