New York, NY, April 2018 – FORK IN THE CRICK, the second novel from author and playwright Granville Wyche Burgess, will be published in September 2018 by Chickadee Prince Books. A literary romantic novel set among the Amish community in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Fork is a gripping tale of thwarted romance and attempted murder, which continues the story of Rebecca Zook, a young Amish woman torn between her traditional community her passion to be an artist. Like Stone in the Crick, the first book in Burgess’s Rebecca Zook saga, Fork is a beautifully written depiction of a secretive community, which transcends the romance genre, and is based on a deep and personal knowledge of the Amish people.
When Stone was published in 2016, Kirkus wrote, “Burgess makes good use of his setting. Rebecca’s Amish culture isn’t just a backdrop; it’s part of her…. The gentle love story also respects Rebecca’s values. A sensitive story about finding oneself in a community,” and Elizabeth Oberbeck, author of The Dressmaker (Henry Holt & Co.) praised the novel as “A witty novel, full of humor and intelligence, with memorable characters who feel life-like enough to hug.”
Fork in the Crick, like all Chickadee Prince Books, is available through Ingram, or directly from the publisher.
