Author Given book award from the Midwestern Independent Book Association and a Citation of Recognition by the Boston House of Representatives for Book Award
In addition to officially receiving her first place award from the Midwest Publishers Association for her novel Fatal Decision, East Falmouth resident, Terri Arthur, was also honored by State Rep. David Vieira with a Citation of Recognition from the statehouse signed by House Speaker, Robert DeLeo.
The ceremony was held on July 24th in Falmouth and attended by over 80 friends and colleagues. Arthur’s’ publisher, Kira Henschel from Henschel Haus Publishing in Milwaukee, WI, presented the prize.
“I am so honored to receive this award,” said Arthur. “A lot of hard work went into this book. It was well worth all the effort because it is a story that needed to be told.”
Arthur’s book, Fatal Decision: Edith Cavell WWI Nurse, tells the powerful story of the legendary Edith Cavell, a British nurse who defied the brutal German military in WWI by working with the resistance movement in Belgium to rescue Allied soldiers and escorting them to safety. Arthur is also a Registered Nurse.
Fatal Decision is now in its second printing. The British edition is available as Fatal Destiny: Edith Cavell WWI Nurse. An audible version of the book is available on Audible.com. The CDs are due to come out in August.
