About this title


Winner of seven independent publishing awards, including the IndieReader Discovery Award in Women's Fiction, this debut novel is a direct hit to the heart. 

About the book:  There's nothing about her life that doesn't need a little work, so Melanie Davis thinks of herself as a "fixer-upper." Her history with men leaves her gun shy; her teenaged daughter can't string two civil words together; her best friend Donna just found out she has a life-threatening illness. When Donna also reveals a decades-old secret that still haunts her, Melanie makes it her mission to solve the mystery and reunite Donna with a precious link to her past - before it's too late.

Along the way Melanie discovers with startling clarity the pricelessness of love and friendship. With a finely-tuned emotional compass, Kate Bracy carries us through a trial-by-illness as funny as it is touching. Her narrator, Melanie, comes to realize the enduring power of love - between men and women, between mothers and daughters, between friends. Through her vivid, endearing characters Bracy creates a small-town world in northern New York where old loves rekindle, friendships prevail, and secret wounds are finally healed. This debut novel will leave you with an awakened heart and a strong urge to send postcards to all the people you love.

From the Back Cover:

A hidden box of letters tied with a ribbon, emails printed and crammed into the bottom of a purse. Unrequited love revisited, hidden pregnancies and lost children, childhood sweethearts and best girlfriends.

That Crazy Little Thing is a story of secrets - both shared and not shared - and how they come back uninvited.

This is a tale of the circular path each life takes, and the echoes that resound years later when least expected; a story of lost and found, a story of reunions both hopeful and hopeless.

Poignant and timely, classically charming and yet casual and funny, Kate Bracy's debut novel has a bequest for everyone.
