The Violets of March


By Sarah Jio

Our next featured book in the Fall Fab Book Giveaway is Sarah Jio’s The Violets of March. I’ve not had a chance to finish this one (am close, but can you IMAGINE my TBR pile??), but there has been much buzz all over the 'net about Violets since its debut in April, and Sarah’s already got another book, The Bungalow, which is slated for publication in December! Talk about ‘gettin’ it done!

Sarah was a 2011 Debutante Ball participant, which is a major literary honor, and The Violets of March has just gone into its fourth printing. Congratulations to Sarah, who’s also a busy mom to three little boys. And I call MYSELF MaNiC MoMMy!??

Jodi Picoult says this about Violets: "Mix a love story, history, and a mystery and what takes root? The Violets of March, a novel that reminds us how the past comes back to haunt us, and packs great surprises along the way.”

Here is the back-of-the-book blurb:

In her twenties, Emily Wilson was on top of the world: she had a bestselling novel, a husband plucked from the pages of GQ, and a one-way ticket to happily ever after. Ten years later, the tide has turned on Emily’s good fortune. So when her great-aunt Bee invites her to spend the month of March on Bainbridge Island in Washington State, Emily accepts, longing to be healed by the sea. Researching her next book, Emily discovers a red velvet diary, dated 1943, whose contents reveal startling connections to her own life.

You can view the BOOK TRAILER HERE


SNEAK PEEK!
And because I want to share Sarah’s next book with you too, here’s the blurb for The Bungalow, and perhaps later this year, I’ll have the opportunity to offer you guys a copy of that too? So, let’s just put a teaser in here, shall we?

Here’s what The Bungalow is about:

A sweeping saga of thwarted love, murder, and a long-lost painting… In the summer of 1942, twenty-one-year-old Anne Calloway, newly engaged, sets off to serve in the Army Nurse Corps on the Pacific island of Bora-Bora. More exhilarated by the adventure of a lifetime than she ever was by her predictable fiance, she is drawn to a mysterious soldier named Westry, and their friendship soon blossoms into hues as deep as the hibiscus flowers native to the island. under the thatched roof of an abandoned beach bungalow, the two share a private world–until they witness a gruesome crime, Westry is suddenly redeployed, and the idyll vanishes into the winds of war. A timeless story of enduring passion, The Bungalow chronicles Anne’s determination to discover the truth about the twin losses–of life and, and of love–that have haunted her for seventy years.

If you just can’t wait for The Bungalow, you can always just preorder it now, and wait to see if you win The Violets of March HERE!

I love how Sarah’s incorporating history in both of her books, and exotic, unique places that are just as much like a character in her book. Her covers are gorgeous, and her writing is exquisite. You’re not going to want to miss out on either of her books.

However, we’re only offering The Violets of March for the Fall Fab Giveaway so answer this very easy question to qualify:

Tell me your favorite flower and your favorite month and WHY. Also, the month CANNOT be your birthday month. Mine is gardenias because I love the smell although they turn brown very quickly, and I remember being a kid in Tampa running up and down the streets, picking gardenias from the neighbors bushes and sticking them in our hair while we ran barefoot through the neighborhood. But I also love carnations because they smell clean and fresh and last forever. And favorite month … hmmm… wow, I just asked myself a hard question … I now live in Scottsdale and late summer months suck, like August and September. I may have to say February or March are pretty nice months here weather-wise!

Your turn to answer the question. Favorite flower, favorite month. Hey Sarah, how about YOU? What's your favorite month and your favorite flower, and WHY?

Also, if you haven’t had the chance yet, you may still enter to win Definitely Not Mr. Darcy, the first book in the Giveaway (if there is not a winner’s name highlighted above the post)! For future posts, just so you all know, you can always go back to previous book features to check to see who the winner is -- that's how you'll find out if you've won or not, and you can still enter if there's not a winner's name posted on the top and highlighted! I usually choose a winner for each book anywhere from 3-7 days after I post a feature!

Thanks for checking out the Fall Fab Giveaway – we’ve got TONS more books coming your way through mid-October and then. I'll be featuring 2-3 each week. At the end of ALL the individual books featured and given away, one or two lucky winners will win the WHOLE batch of the books.

If you’ve got particular questions on how the Giveaway works, check the ORIGINAL POST HERE, or feel free to email me! Thanks!

Good luck everyone! And I really enjoy your comments too!

If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment and I'll answer it in the thread, or email me at stephanieelliot@gmail.com. It is always at my discretion to change things up, and because of some regulations, I guess I must say that the books I review are given to me by either the authors or publishers or publicists, and I am never paid for my reviews, and they are my own personal reviews, and you know what, because I'm here telling you this anyway, I will also tell you that I never review a book I don't like, because you know what, why waste my time, life is too short to read a crappy book! There.

Hi, my favorite month is June, perfect weather, great smelling ocean air where I live. My favorite flowers are the giant sunflowers. They are so cheerful and happy looking.

Love September...a smooth goodbye to summer and a brisk move to Autumn. Love pink carnations...

So much buzz about this book, I feel like I am going to missing something special if I do not read this one.

Poof...books! said...

Oops was not prepared with first entry...favorite flower is the gerber daisy and favorite month is September.

robin krzyzak said...

My favorite flower, torn between sweet pea and four o'clocks! Reminds me of my grandparents spending every weekend with them as my real father couldn't have visitation with me... Grams and I planted the four o'clocks when I was around 7, Gramps and I planted sweet peas for grams a couple years later... Favorite month April/May to see these flowers still bloom at my grandparents house even though they are long gone...the flowers are still there! Man I miss them.

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

Loving these memories the flowers are conjuring up too!

Kristi said...

My favorite flower is a star-gazer lily because they smell so good. My favorite month would be June. I absolutely LOVE summer time and all that it entails but I live in Texas so summer gets a little rough by August. June it's always fresh and new though!

Terri said...

My favorite flower is the sunflower...so big and happy looking, and we grew some in our garden when I was little.

I'm going to go with March as my favorite month, since I can't pick April. I love the springtime!

StereoQueenBee said...

My favorite month is May - springtime is so beautiful after a hard winter!

And my favorite flowers are gerbera daisies.

MonaLisa said...

I love hydrangeas. If I had more of a green thumb they would be all over my yard in the summer. My favorite month is April because I love the beginning of spring and seeing everything starting to grow and leave the dullness of the winter behind.

TaraUB said...

My favorite month has always been October. I love Halloween. But October holds the biggest heartbreak of my life; my Dad died October 5, 1999. My favorite flower is the blue-grape hyacinth. My Grandpa had the little flower all over the place. TaraUB in IN

fourkidsmom4 said...

Would love to add a new author to my fave list. :)

jdstec said...

Favorite flower is the peony. Favorite month, whichever one feels like the beginning of spring, usually March or April.

Anonymous said...

I love the book "The Little Prince" so I would say my favorite flower is a single rose. My favorite month is September. I love the cooler weather (at least in Chicago) and getting the kids back into a regular routine.

Juliet Farmer said...

favorite flower is sunflower (so bright and cheerful!) and favorite month is october (married that month, plus i LOVE fall).

Emma S. said...

I don't really have a favorite month. I love living in a place that has four distinct seasons. Summer is sun and beach. Fall means football season! I even enjoy winter with the cold and snow. And Spring is always so beautiful with everything blooming again. Neither do I have a favorite flower. I really enjoy orchids and calla lilies, and ever since my grandmother past away, I've come to appreciate her favorite flower -- pink poinsettias. And what girl doesn't enjoy roses?

Christine in NJ said...

Wow - BOTH books sound fantastic! Looking forward to this read! Favorite flower... use to be Bird of Paradise, but I've had a difficult time finding large ones the past few years. I tend to migrate to gerber daisies now! And this time of year I LOVE sunflowers! Favorite month - August. It is the do nothing - relaxing month!

Christine

A.C. Morris said...

I guess I'd have to say my favorite month is December. I love cooler weather and Christmas is my favorite holiday! My favorite flower would have to be either orchids or roses.

Twins + 1 said...

My favorite flower is Hydrangea...any color...love them! Favorite month is October...fall weather...Halloween...candy corn! :):)

Carie Casey said...

Love October. Fall is my favorite season and I lurve Halloween. Fav flower is a Stargazer lily. They stink but they are so pretty.

Carie

absolutahnie said...

favorite flower is a tough one! first i thought hydrangea but maybe a calla lily or snap dragon..
favorite month is may because so many important people in my life were born then: my dad, my nephew, my best friend & my boyfriend. (and they were all born within a few days of each other! 5/25, 5/29, 5/26 & 5/23)

Megan said...

My favorite month is October because it's brisk, smells like fall, and sweater weather without the bulky coat. My favorite flowers are peonies; so beautiful from bud to full bloom.

I love love October, especially here at the Outer Banks. The water is still pretty warm and there is no one at the beach. I love lilies.

Forgot my "distinctive" name! Sorry Manic! I'm sure you could have figured out who I was by my comment. LOL!

So apparently I am MonaLisa's long lost flower & month twin! B/c I, too, love hydrangeas! I just love at how full they look and I would love my bouquet to be made of them. My favorite month is also April. I just always have loved April. It's such a pretty month and it's not as unbearable as the summer months here in Texas. My ideal wedding date was actually April 17 (obviously the 17th) but that passed last year. boo! I'm aiming for 11/17 now! :)

Liz said...

My favorite month, aside from my birthday month (October), is probably May. I adore spring, and as you will remember from your time in Chicago, in May we are almost always done with snow and enjoying the sunshine. My favorite flower, tulips, are in bloom. Tulips are so perky and bright.

Carly said...

I'd have to say December. I love when the temperatures cool and the feeling of the holidays.
My favorite flower is the hydrangea. I just love the look of them, especially the blue and purple shades.

lynnbelo said...

I love all types of lilies, but my favorite is star-gazer lilies because they're incredibly beautiful. And my favorite month is October! I love it when the air gets cool, the leaves are falling, and of course there's halloween too! :)

Leslie said...

I love tulips and daisies, they make me smile everytime. My fav month is June (sorry, it is my birthday month...but for other reasons) becuase the weather is nice and summery, but not miserable, school is out, and we always go to church camp and on vacation! LeslieGC

krstrpp said...

My favorite month is April because it always signals a new beginning after a harsh winter. And I love all the spring flowers -- tulips, bloodroot, crocus, narcissus -- for the same reason. Thanks for the chance to win the book!

Denise said...

My favorite flower is blue Jacob's Ladder - they're just such a gorgeous deep blue, they're stunning. And my favorite month is October. Fall in the northeast is the best! A little chill in the air, fall jackets, the trees changing color, hot apple cider. It doesn't really get any better!

Krystal said...

My favorite month is October because I LOVE the fall. Wearing jeans, a hoodie and flip flops is the best! My favorite flower is a gerbera daisy. Though they don't have a strong smell, the are big, beautiful and cheery! :)

Hally said...

I love October. Not quite the craziness of the holidays, but it has just a little fervor with Halloween. :) And the weather is cold enough for chilis, and stews, and casseroles again.

My favorite flowers are purple irises or green cynbidiums.

Thanks Manic~

Trish Ryan said...

My favorite flower is a pink tulip. I don't even know why...there's just something about them that has always made me feel happy & peaceful.

Favorite month? September! Cool breezes, sunshine, the start of leaves turning here in New England. It's the best time to be in this part of the country. Love it!

Neckmeat said...

I'm one of those weird gals who doesn't actually like flowers. So my favorite kind would probably be fake or dead. LOL My favorite month hands down...JULY! It's my birthday month, it's summertime, it's hot out, it's got Independence day...what more could you want? :)

DaphneSFL said...

Favorite month: September, because my and my parents' birthdays are in September.

Favorite flower: peony

Melissa said...

My favorite month is October. I love decorating for Halloween. I love that the days are starting to get a bit shorter and the weather a bit cooler (usually, not always). My boys are always so excited and it's just a fun month with little kids.

My favorite flower is the hydrangea. I just think they are beautiful.

Melissa Rem

Lindsay Elizabeth said...

My favorite month is May. In the northeast its really the first month you can anticipate some really nice weather, and the flowers all start to bloom, flip flops come out of storage and its just lovely!

My favorite flowers are Tulips, one of these days I want to go to Holland to see them all!

Colleen Turner said...

My favorite flowers are Cherry Blossoms....they just look so pretty and different from the typical flower.

My favorite month is definitely December because I am a Christmas freak!!!!

Books & Reviews said...

Favorite flower is ....the gerber daisy because they come in a variety of vibrant colors. They are striking and look happy, which makes me happy! My favorite month is, October. I love the feel of the fall in the air and the way the weather changes....

Leah B said...

My favorite month is September - because that is usually when my husband and I take vacation. And my favorite flower might be a pansy - I always planted them with my mother.

The Poty's said...

I'm going to pick the stargazer lily as my favorite flower. As for favorite month I'm going to go with June or July, I love summer! I do realized that's a little crazy living in AZ!

Erin T. said...

My favorite flower is Lilac. We had Lilac bushes lining both sides of my backyard (white & purple) growing up. Subsequently our house smelled of Lilac in the spring, and any time you'd walk out the door that's what you'd smell first.

My favorite month would have to be October. It's not hot anymore and it hasn't snowed yet (most of the time). The weather is perfect!

Amy said...

My favorite month is September. It's not too hot and no where near cold yet. It's a lovely month to do all things outdoors and not get sweltering hot. Hubby and I got married Labor Day 2005 and wow what a day, and the weather was amazing too! I have two favorite flowers (sorry they are really both my favorite). I love the iris. I'm a huge purple freak and love the yellow and purple together, and how they are complimentary colors. Also the kitchen chandelier in my house growing up had irises all over it, and I loved it!
I also LOVE the calla lily. When I started looking at flowers for my wedding bouquet, once I saw a pic there was no turning back.

My favorite flower is the carnation, it just smells so good and available in so many colors but I would not want a man to give them to me. Too cheap. LOL! My favorite month is June because school is over. No more homework or projects due. I'm not the one in school but it seems like if my daughter has homework then so do I. Much more stress free and we can start to have fun.

Lizett34 said...

My favorite flower is a daisy, they just make me smile every time I see one. As for my favorite month it would have to be January. It is the start of a new year with new possibilities.

Melissa said...

I used to love tulips because they are such clean flowers, the stems and petals are just perfect but now I'm obsessed with hot pink Gerbera daisies! They are just so perky and I love pink.

My favorite month is December...I love seeing the Christmas lights, my Christmas tree, and visiting with family. Plus, we get 2 weeks off at the end from work!

My favorite flower is the alstroemeria. It's so simple, but so beatiful.

Favorite month is October, the days are still warm, but it cools down so nicely at night.

BRN2SHOP9 said...

My favorite month is January because it is my birthday month and the start of a fresh year.

My favorite flowers are roses that are melon color. I don't know what type they are, but they are orangey with yellow in them.

Julia said...

My favorite flower is a peony, because they are so lush and big and extravagant. My favorite month is July, because that's when summer kicks into full gear in Boston.

My favorite flowers are roses. As a child, my family would attend the flower show in NYC every year and buy flower bulbs and bushes and plant them in late September/Fall, which is my favorite season. It was a wonderful time for my parents and all the kids to get together before divorce ripped our family apart like most everyone elses in the neighborhood! Great topic for novels as we all know TOO well! :-)

Magnolias - they smell so good and there's nothing prettier than a whole tree of them. October - fabulous fall weather, football, and Halloween. It doesn't get any better than that.

Tulips - love the variety of colors and their shape. October - even in California, October holds the promise of Fall - love the changing sunlight.

Mrs. Sweet Life said...

My favorite month is November because Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. My favorite flower is the daisy. They are just happy flowers and you can't help buts Ike when you see them.

You guys are making me very much miss the changes of the seasons!!! That's definitely one thing we do not get here in Arizona, which is bumming me out A LOT!!!

Also, some of you are NOT reading the posts ... naughty naughty ... because some of you are choosing YOUR birthday months! (Although one of you did say you knew you were NOT supposed to choose your birthday month but you loved it for other reasons! I'm letting it slide this time, but might not be so nice next time I ask a question. I wanna make sure you're reading the posts -- not fair for the authors (or the readers who really do want the book!)-- you want the book, right?? Why else would you BE here!! Thanks for all the great answers though -- there are a lot of flowers out there I haven't considered!

Favorite flower: Tulips, any color & soft pink peonies. Favorite month: April. The reason for both is that after the long, cold Indiana winters, the soft pastel colors of spring are always such a welcome relief. Tulips usually begin blooming here the third week in April.

My favorite month is September. I love when it starts getting cool and the leaves start turning, football season starts and we got married in September.

I love daisies most of all. I think because they are so clean and simple. Give me a vase of daisies over roses any day!

Dani In Chicago said...

Favorite flower: daisy - cheerful and pretty
Favorite month: May - springtime weather and a prelude to summer!

Roses, they seem so simple and pure, but still so very romantic.
Favorite month, hmmmm. I like every month, so i'll just pick one. December; my daughters b-day, Christmas, hopefully, a little, snow on the ground.

LizzyBethDJ said...

My favorite flower is orchid. My grandfather use to raise them and actually invented a hybrid version of one.
My favorite month is hard to answer but I am going to say October. Still warm enough to enjoy outside, beautiful with changing leaves, a crisp smell in the air, pumpkin everywhere - in baking and in beer, and a sense of urgency from everyone trying to enjoy the last of everything before winter takes hold.

Ncsuloges said...

Not sure my fav flower but I do hate roses. They smell gross and are such a cliche. I'd say sunflowers just bc they seem happy. Or calla lilies because they are so elegant. Fav month is October: football,halloween, leaves change, pumpkin spice lattes. I could go on and on.

I love May as it is the lead in to the summer. Favorite flower is a rose - true love and my husband is a rose man. Patcole

First of all I'd like to not be in this contest because I've read and love this book and of course would like someone who hasn't had the pleasure to win! but I want to comment for the overall contest!! :)

My favorite flower is baby's breath always has been! I think they are so delicate and pretty! and my favorite month not my birthday month would be July because of the weather! although it was very hot this year!!

I think my favorite flower is the Lady's Slipper. I used to find them in the woods by our house in Maine where I grew up, and we weren't allowed to pick them, so they seemed so beautiful and exotic. My favorite month, hmmm... not sure I have one. I'll pick May!

keltban said...

My favorite flower is the Sunflower. I just adore how they look..so pretty.

My favorite month is October. It's getting cooler but not too cold. I love the color of changing leaves on the trees. Pumpkin foods are everywhere. Great month!

caliblues said...

My favorite flower is Lily of the Valley. Their little white blooms seem so delicate, but they are actually quite hardy, coming back year after year. And they smell so so good.
My favorite month is September. The unbearable sticky summer heat is finally leaving the East Coast, which is rejuvenating in itself. But it also feels like a New Year month of fresh starts, with back-to-school & new clothes & supplies & a new fall schedule.
BTW, I am surprised that Sunflowers & Daisies are the favorites of so many. Don't know why I'm surprised, though, those are both great flowers.

Erin G said...

My favorite flower is a daisy... I had them in my wedding bouquet. And my favorite month is October, because it is full on fall, with apple festivals, football and Halloween!

Since I can't pick July (my bday month) I will pick June. It's finally getting warm here in June and I love summer. My fave flower is Peonies...they are just so delicate and beautiful. I have a bush in my yard and I get so excited when they finally bloom after a long, cold winter. :) Nan

Anyway, I wouldn't mind getting another copy to give someone as a gift and I want to enter the grand giveaway anyway, so I'll answer your questions.

I love to have fresh flowers around my house but picking a fav is tough. I think lillies would have to top my list. My fav month would have to be November.

EBrowning said...

My favorite flowers are daisies, I think they are so pretty! My favorite month is probaby a toss up between October (I love the changing leaves, cooler weather, and Halloween!) or December because Christmas is my favorite time of year. :)

Jezebel's Mama said...

Favorite flower? Most any of the ones I get from my husband! Also, though he'll never be able to remember- star gazer lillies!!

Coleen said...

My favorite flower is a cala lilly and gerber daisies. Calla lily's because they are beautiful and remind me of the spring as well as my wedding day. Gerber daisies because they were the first type of flower my husband bought me when we first started dating.
My favorite month is September, the weather is usually not too hot and not too cold. . .there is still a hint of summer but at the same time all the fall stuff starts like pumpkin flavored drinks and food!!!

Karie said...

My favorite flower is the rose. Probably corny but I love the smell and the beautiful symbolism it has come to represent. White for purity. Yellow for friendship. Red for love.

I think my favorite month would have to be December. I love the holidays, cooler weather, being bundled up, and really really cherishing my friends and family.

Amy R. said...

I love October because I love all the fall harvest events that go on around where I live (I'm from Ohio). I have two favorite flowers: 1)hydrangeas. They're so timeless and brighten up any room and they come in a variety of colors. 2) I love orchids as well because my dad used to 'raise' them in his greenhouse.

Kimberly said...

I love September...always have. September is a reminder of so many things to me....the excitement of back to school..football..crunchy leaves..apple cider..hoodie weather. I could go on and on! My favorite flower is blue hydrangea because I think they have a classic vintage-y look to them. =)

My favorite month is December. I love the holidays and all the festivities that go along with it. And my favorite flower, my sister-in-law and I were just talking about this, is a Gerbera Daisy...they're just so pretty and the array of colors they come in are remarkable.

Janet said...

My favorite month has always been July because I am a summer gal. (Unfortunately, I was born in the dampness of November). I love sunflowers for the same reason; they are bright, yellow, and they, like me, respond to the warmth of the sunlight.

Bernadette7 said...

December is my favorite month becuase it's alll about the Christmas seaon and spirit in my house. Favorite flower is a purple tulip ahh signs of spring after a long winter

My favorite months are May...not too hot yet, and October...starting to cool off! My favorite flower is gerber daisy..so very pretty!!

My fav flower as a kid was a pansy. They looked like they had smiling faces to me. I live on east coast now and I would have to say late Oct. eary Nov. fav. month because of the fall folliage.

My favorite month is probably December...I love Christmas-time! I'm Jewish, but Christmas is just such a happy time around everywhere that I love it! And my favorite flower would probably be.....the white oleander...they remind me of camp.

One of my favorite flowers is Hibiscus bc they are so pretty in all of their colors and it was my first tattoo, many a year ago. Which leads me to my favorite month, November - because it's when I got married, and also, by November we are knee deep into Fall here in VA (which is my favorite season) and the leaves have turned all their gorgeous colors. :)

Favorite flowers are calla lilies. They are just so simple and beautiful. Favorite month is June because it kicks off summer.

My favorite month is October; I absolutely love the weather that time of year and have always said that's the month I want to get married in.

My favorite flower is the hydrangea because it reminds me of Cape Cod (my favorite vacation spot) and because I think it's SO cool how they vary in color based on the acidity of the soil they're planted in. I even think they look cool as they're turning the corner from pretty to browning.

I love December because it represents endings... and beginnings. I love red roses, because they have thorns.

My favorite flower is the daffodil, because they look so beautiful after the snow. My favorite month is December...because that is the Christmas season and the whole family is together.

Favorite flower--Tiger lily--no idea why just every time I see/smell one it makes me smile:)

and Seriously my favorite month is my birthday month not because of my birthday but because I love fall --and Halloween--so I would say September but it is still 90 and HOT here in Cali and November has Thanksgiving and I hate Thanksgiving food and now we are approaching winter--I love October I love the smell of apples and Halloween decorations along with the leaves changing colors and the brisk year but still plenty of sunshine there is no better month:) so if I must pick a different month then I would say September because it is leading me to my favorite time of the year fall:)
