Warrenton, VA, May 19, 2015 –(PR.com)– “It Burns a Lovely Light” is a riveting novel about an Air Force family. Set in the 1970’s and 80’s, the novel has the highest 5 Star Rating from Amazon Reviews and was a 2014 USA Best Book Finalist.
“It Burns a Lovely Light” features the James family, a tight-knit foursome that move from base to base. The dysfunction of the family relying only on each other (their family motto is ‘Us four and no more’) is revealed when crisis strikes. The descriptions of military life, from base housing, to the Officer’s Club, to the protocol involved when an airman is killed or wounded, are based on Pennington’s personal knowledge of military life.
“My sisters and I were Air Force Brats,” said Pennington. “Our father, General Robert McCann, was transferred often, so we were constantly packing, unpacking, making new friends and saying goodbye to old friends. Perhaps in order to survive, we convinced ourselves that we were the lucky ones. That people who grew up in one place were missing out. That is the jumping off point of my novel.”
IndieReader calls Pennington’s debut novel “A remarkably moving book, with well-crafted characters and a strong, loving emotional center.”
“It Burns a Lovely Light” is available on Amazon, Kindle, Nook, Barnes&Noble.com.
