The Book Sisters
The six Book sisters grow up in America between the 1960s and the present day. In this literary novel, the author explores how each girl is shaped by the events unfolding around her and takes on a particular role in society. Kirkus Reviews calls the novel “…a succinct chronicle of American womanhood in the second half of the 20th century. A beautifully composed novel of individuality within sisterhood.”
Taking in Air
The poems in this collection are rooted in a reverence for Nature and in meditation and prayer. Covering the span of the poet’s life, they demonstrate her spiritual transformation. Poet Anthony S. Abbott says of this collection “…the sense of mystery is everywhere in these poems… We read the poems wondering if perhaps we too might not undergo that change which allows us to discover our own deeper selves."
When the Moon Winks
When her husband of 30 years leaves her for a younger woman, Helen Ferry must find a way to deal with the emptiness left behind. At first, she sets out to reclaim her old life; instead, given wise advice, she begins a journey towards a newer, brighter version of herself.
