The Golden Apple by Faerl Marie

MEET POPPY PARKER, a recent widow who knows she must move forward but has no idea which direction to take. To start fresh, Poppy moves from her idyllic home in Georgia to the grimy glamour of New York City to open up her own boutique and find a way to live and love without her husband. 

Austin Bandy has been in love with Poppy since the moment he laid eyes on her years ago, right before her wedding. Now she is back, grieving and broken hearted by her nearly-perfect husband’s death—not Austin’s ideal romantic situation. He needs to wait for her to recover but not so long that someone else has the chance to move in and sweep his dream girl off her feet and keep him as a “good friend” forever. 

Poignant, hopeful and fresh, Faerl Marie’s enchanting debut novel will have you hooked and ready to pursue your own hopes and dreams the moment you turn the final page. The Golden Apple is a charming and fashionable novel about loss, love and moving on without betraying your self, your past or those you love.

    Your name, Faerl, is beautiful and unique. What does it mean? Is it a family name?

    1. Catherine Lee,

      It is a family name with French origins. I don't know the meaning and not for a lack of searching. Thank you very much!

  7. Are you climbing a tree in an evening gown in your bio picture? How very intriguing.

    1. I took part in a photo shoot and wore my wedding gown! It was very fun and the shoot won the blogger a spot on Teen Vogue's Blogger list!

  10. Faerl Marie, this sounds like one of those books I would almost be afraid to read simply because I know it's going to be so emotional, yet at the same time, the reviews are so heartwarming I'm inexplicably drawn. I just know I'll feel better for having taken the chance :) Congrats on your masterpiece :)
