Because of her dyslexia, Jenna was a late bloomer in the wild and wonderful world of books. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini was the first book she read and fell in love with. Since then, reading and writing have become her life's work. Whether she's bookselling, running her own business, speaking on her podcast, or writing works of fiction and non-fiction, her passion lies in connecting with people through curiosity, conversation, and storytelling.

Published: Wednesday Books - June 28th, 2022

Chosen as the Finestra, the window to the divine, Alessa has given up everything, including her identity to save her country from the end of days. Problem is, the power the goddess gave her doesn’t work as it should and people are beginning to lose faith. Alessa would too, but losing faith isn’t a luxury she can afford. Epic enemies to lovers. This one made me cry. The last time I cried over a fantasy novel I was over a decade ago. -Jenna
