Virginia Hume releases debut novel, Haven Point
If you’re an avid Fox News watcher, you know that last name sounds familiar! Brit Hume’s daughter, Virginia Hume, is out with her debut novel Haven Point this week. Haven Point is “a sweeping debut novel about the generations of a family that spends summers in a seaside enclave on Maine’s rocky coastline, for fans of Elin Hilderbrand, Beatriz Williams, and Sarah Blake.” While the novel is not overtly political in nature, it is always refreshing to see and celebrate a center right voice in fiction since it seems to be so rare these days. Dana Perino recently sang it’s praises on The Five, sharing “highly recommend for your summer reading and I loved it.” Get your copy of Haven Point here.
