Book Description

Becoming Jessie Belle by Linda Hughes

The Indie Book of the Day for 15th of December, 2014!

Genre: Literary, Contemporary

Jessie Belle Church hates her old coot of a boss for making her go on a stupid “Ancestry Quest” news assignment. After all, the thirty-year-old CNN newscaster is used to wearing designer gowns to art gallery openings with her filthy rich boyfriend, not schlepping through the jungle in sweaty shorts and tee shirt with a gorilla of a cameraman. But there she is anyway, traipsing through Africa and Europe to follow the ancestry trail left by her DNA. However, when she’s visited each night by a different spirit of her female forebears, reliving the most exciting and terrifying events of their common yet extraordinary lives, Jessie Belle begins to emerge from her self-absorption to appreciate all that transpired in the past to give her the privileged life that she has today. And, even more shocking, she discovers just how tame and tantalizing that animal of a cameraman can be. Her world shifts as she takes the tales of her ancestors to heart and becomes the true Jessie Belle Church.

Read Sample

When I was twelve years old I wrote in my diary that I would be a “writter” when I grew up. Thank goodness for spell-check today. I am a storyteller whose purpose is always the same: to enlighten and entertain while providing insights into coming of age for women of all ages. My novel “Homecoming Queen” won honorable mention in a National Writers Association contest and my screenplay “Tough Rocks,” written with my sister Karene, was awarded a certificate of merit in an American Screenwriters Association & Writers Digest contest. I have since turned that into a novel written under my pen name Rosa Roberts. You will find seven of my books in print and/or on Kindle. Enjoy!
