THE WORLD CAME TO US by Molly D. Campbell – Spotlight & Giveaway



In Molly D. Campbell’s novel, THE WORLD CAME TO US, Tommy Poole and her mother Meg have decided to become recluses together. Not forever; only for a year. And not at night when the dog needs to be walked. But in the midst of their grief over the loss of Tommy’s other mother, Sam, shutting themselves off from the outside world seems like the only viable path to recovery.

However, while they have decided to step away from the world, the world has not made the same decision. Soon, Tommy’s best friend is living with them. And the crotchety neighbor is making his presence felt far more than anyone appreciates. And when a teenaged girl with a troubled past and an indignant future enters their orbit, life might be as full for Tommy and Meg as it has been in years.

And that was before the wedding . . .

Rich with Molly D. Campbell’s trademark humor and resonant with ruminations on loss and identity, The World Came to Us is the author’s most heartfelt, compelling, and poignant novel yet. It is a story of letting go and letting in and a touching tale of discovery and rediscovery.



Molly writes from her pantry, often in pajamas. She exercises regularly, despite the fact that she has sustained numerous injuries involving barbells and exercise balls. She successfully raised two gorgeous daughters, who both pay their own bills. Molly can also be found at: Molly has few interests other than reading books and writing, although she and her husband did attempt clog dancing with disastrous results. A huge fan of HGTV, Molly has been known to watch marathon sessions of “Househunters” while leafing through magazines and snacking. Molly’s husband has an accordion band. The neighbors have started a collection to fund soundproofing for the Campbell’s basement.

Molly lives in Dayton, Ohio with her husband and pets. She is the author of three books. Characters in Search of a Novel is an illustrated book of flash fiction. Keep the Ends Loose is a coming-of age novel full of quirky characters and family drama. Crossing the Street is a women’s fiction novel about family-both the kind you are born with and the kind that finds you.

  1. I’m having a very quiet Valentines Day. My son gave me an incredibly thoughtful and generous gift certificate to a spa so I’m going in the day for a facial, mani/pedi and massage. In the evening I’ll be reading, surrounded by what else, Chocolate, and my fur baby will be curled up beside me. Thank you for the chance


  2. My Valentine’s Day plans is working at the restaurant I work at and watching couples come in for our Valentine’s Day specials. My husband and I don’t celebrate VD, so that’s OK with me.


  3. My husband and I aren’t doing anything special for ourselves, but we are having our grandson spend the night so that his parents can go to a concert that his dad is playing in.


  4. No plans as of yet, but after I get out of work, I’ll be spending the evening with my husband.


  5. My husband passed away a few months ago so no special plans, although the 14th is the anniversary of our engagement and our oldest’s birthday.

  6. A quiet evening at home. My spouse usually grills…a glass of wine… and our daily walk after dinner. The simplest of things are the best!

  8. We’ll likely stay in, maybe bring in dinner. Next week, after all the hoopla has died down, we’ll go out to eat. We used to go out for Valentine’s Day, but encountered such bad service and ill prepared food that we decided to move our celebration. Thank you for the chance.

  9. My husband usually surprises me by going to the store after I am asleep, on the night before Valentine’s Day. He buys me a lovely bouquet of flowers and some chocolate. This year, he thought today(the 13th) was Valentine’s Day, and bought the bouquet one day early. When the cashier informed him that he had his days mixed up, he bought the flowers anyway and gave them to me early! This year, we plan to break open a special bottle of wine that was picked out in Italy.
