The University Bookstore will host a book signing from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14, with UMaine student and author Kris Sproul Devine autographing copies of her first novel, “Beaten, Blinded by Love.” Devine, writing as Kris Sproul, is a native of Cherryfield, Maine, and a journalism major at UMaine.
University Bookstore will have copies of Sproul’s crime novel available for purchase.
“We’re excited to be a part of Ms. Sproul’s promotion of her first novel,” says Keven Higgins, associate director of the bookstore. “It’s important to us to support UMaine authors, whether they are alumni, faculty, staff, or in this case, a current student.”
“Beaten, Blinded by Love” is about a police officer who is the granddaughter and daughter-in-law of the dual heads of an inner-city crime family. A series of life-threatening events force the woman to disappear with her young son to start a new life, but as she dives into a new identify in a new home, events of her past begin to complicate matters and again jeopardize their lives.
