Product description

Review

"An impressive debut." --The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"A super emotionally charged love story." --RT Book Reviews

"Read it in the tub." --Redbook

"A luminous love story that readers won't soon forget, Fireworks Over Toccoa transports you to another time and place. It is at once heartbreaking and triumphant--an affirmation of love in all its forms." --NYTimes bestselling author, Emily Giffin

"Fireworks Over Toccoa pinches the heart, telling a poignant tale of love and loss, of making choices and letting go. Lily and Jake's passion shimmers from the pages, enveloping the reader in their private kudzu-covered world. With carefully-crafted characters, a lush and very real setting, this is a not-to-be missed book. Move over Nicholas Sparks!" --Karen White, award-winning author of The House on Tradd Street

"Fireworks Over Toccoa literally explodes with life. Its insights about place and love versus duty are as sharp as an eagle's eye. I absolutely loved every character and hated for their story to end. Kaboom! A brilliant first effort from Jeffrey Stepakoff! Congratulations!" --Dorothea Benton Frank, NY Times bestselling author of Return to Sullivans Island

"Fireworks Over Toccoa is the poignant recollection of a young woman's coming of age and finding love, set against the vivid tableau of small town America during the Second World War, Stepakoff skillfully crafts a remarkable tale of fate and chance, choice and consequences, rewarding readers with a mesmerizing experience." --Pam Jenoff, International bestselling author of The Kommandant's Girl and Almost Home

"Fireworks Over Toccoa is a terrific story--moving, whimsical and original, a real page-turner destined for the big screen." --Joanne Harris, International Bestselling author of Chocolat

"An unexpected love affair of Lily Davis, a WW II bride, is brilliantly portrayed by Jeffrey Stepakoff. Filled with suspense and surprise, I couldn't put it down. As dazzling as the fireworks which brought this war-time couple together, their passionate love affair is spellbinding. I was mesmerized to the last page!" --Marjorie Hart, National Bestselling author of Summer at Tiffany
