Love of Finished Years by Gregory Erich Phillips

This moving debut novel by Gregory Erich Phillips won the Grand Prize for best book of the year in the Chanticleer Reviews International writing Competition.

Pre WWI, Elsa came to America with her eyes wide open, realizing it was up to her to make a life

family opens up her world. Invited in, up to a point, she unwittingly, albeit precariously, crosses
the social divide with her now open heart which puts all she worked for in jeopardy.

reading I find myself caring about the fabulous characters and their
lives even more.”
