If You’re Attending the Event
Author Claire Gibson is an “army brat” who moved frequently throughout her childhood, but grew up at West Point, where her father was a professor. Her debut novel, Beyond the Point, is a heartfelt story based on her personal experience and those of the servicemembers she interviewed as research for the novel: the experience of four years at a service academy, deciding to serve, dual-military marriages, deployment and the struggle to find purpose in life after a military career. Claire will be speaking about Beyond the Point at a military luncheon at the Poinsett Club on Monday, April 15th at noon. Tickets are $26, admit one, and include lunch and a donation to a military charity. Following her talk, Claire will be available to sign books. Books and tickets can be purchased online, in store, or by calling Fiction Addiction at 864-675-0540.
About Beyond the Point
Three women are brought together in an enthralling story of friendship, heartbreak, and resilience. Set at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, this is an amazing debut novel.
Duty. Honor. Country. That’s West Point’s motto, and every cadet who passes through its stone gates vows to live it. But on the eve of 9/11, as Dani, Hannah and Avery face four grueling years ahead, they realize they’ll only survive if they do it together.
Everyone knows Dani is going places. With athletic talent and a brilliant mind, she navigates West Point’s predominantly male environment with wit and confidence, breaking stereotypes and embracing new friends.
Hannah’s grandfather, a legendary Army general, offers a stark warning about the dangers that lie ahead, but she moves forward anyway, letting faith guide her path. When she meets her soul mate at West Point, the future looks perfect, just as planned.
Wild child Avery moves fast and doesn’t mind breaking a few rules (and hearts) along the way. But she can’t outpace her self-doubt, and the harder she tries, the further it leads her down a treacherous path.
The world—of business, of love, and of war—awaits Dani, Hannah, and Avery beyond the gates of West Point. These three women know that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. But soon, that adage no longer rings true—for their future, or their friendship. As they’re pulled in different directions, will their hard-forged bond prevail or shatter?
Beyond the Point is a heartfelt look at how our closest friends can become our fiercest battle buddies. After all, the greatest battles we fight rarely require a uniform.
