Giving New Life to Old Manuscripts: An Interview with author Carolyn Haley
Carolyn Haley’s novel, Into the Sunrise, is the story of two misfits pursuing incompatible dreams who fall in love despite themselves and find a way, through their shared love of horses, to mesh their lives as well as their hearts. Or, put into romantic book-pitch terms: She’s afraid to love again, and he’s afraid to love at all, until their shared love of horses teaches them how to love each other.
But perhaps even more interesting than these characters’ story is the story of the novel itself. By that I mean how it evolved from an idea Carolyn had as a young girl into numerous manuscript drafts and versions over the years, finally arriving at its current version, which was picked up by Wild Rose Press and released this past May.
