Morris County Book Club - Author Visit & Book Signing!

Empty Arms
by Erika Liodice
Fiction; 326pp.

Special local author visit and book signing!

Catharine Chase’s entire life is built on a secret. In 1972, at the tender age of sixteen, she got pregnant. An embarrassment to her parents, Catharine was exiled to a maternity home to carry out her pregnancy far away from the watchful eyes of their tight-knit community. What they didn’t tell her is that she wouldn’t be allowed to keep her baby.

With her daughter’s screams still echoing in her ears, the medical staff told Catharine she’d move on with her life and have more children, they promised she’d forget. But they were wrong. Catharine never forgot Emily. And when she and her husband, Paul, learn that they can’t have children, she risks her job, her marriage, and her family’s reputation in a desperate attempt to find the daughter she never wanted to give away and reclaim her only chance to be a mother.

10% of every book sold goes to Save the Children charity, so we can read and support a good cause at the same time. Also, for those who decide to purchase the paperback, Erika would be happy to sign your books :)

    Erika Liodice is a fantastic writer AND person. As always, our conversation about the book was open and honest and she welcomed our feedback and fielded our questions.

    I felt a bit uncomfortable expressing opinions about the book with the author present because I felt she was a bit defensive when other gave criticism. Maybe it was just me - sorry!

    I had so much fun discussing my novel, Empty Arms, with the Morris County Book Club last night! There were so many great questions and insights about the book. You have a fabulous group and I'm so honored that I got to join you for an evening!
