Abby never thought she'd have the strength, or the nerve, to get out. An abusive husband, a suffocating marriage, and a decade-long fight with PTSD conspired to trap her in that life. Now living in Ecuador amid the Andes Mountain Range, she enjoys a new life and a new relationship with an old friend. Her former troubles seem a world away. But that all changes when her new love confronts her ex back in North Carolina. If he becomes the next victim of the man she left behind, will it lead the violence of her past to her doorstep?

Psst! Your Wisdom's Showing
A book of contemporary poetry, written for women. Wisdom is born of time, experience, and relationships.
It’s there, do you see it?
And there’s another.
No, it’s not just the way the sunlight reflects
It’s really there
It’s not an aberration
It’s not the success of the vitamin enriched shampoo
It’s not a highlight
I didn’t pay for it,
It just appeared,
Or maybe I did pay for it.
What do you think?
Is it a badge of courage?
Or a symbol of dwindling vitality?
Shall I wear it proudly?
Or cover it with chemicals
Or possibly a hat?
Yes, a hat.
I shall point to it when I need it,
Yes, I’m experienced,
Yes, I’m wise
And I shall wear a hat when I don’t,
So that I
I am the aberration
That gray haired young girl
Doing cartwheels on the hillside
Next to the river,
With the stunning hat.
7° of Wisdom: Welcome to Our Circle
If you’ve ever wished you could sit down with a mother or grandmother – yours or someone else’s - and get their advice or input, here’s your chance to do that.
We are seven women – mothers and/or grandmothers - ranging in age from early 20s to early 80s. Between us we have pretty much done and seen it all, burning some bits and gathering pearls along the way. Aging, Having a Voice, Wisdom, Courage, Love, Loss and Risk are the topics you will find within the pages of this book. From poetry to short story and prose, we share our experiences of some of the profound moments of life. Grab a cup of tea, a glass of wine, or mug of coffee. Get comfortable. You just may find the advice you’ve been seeking and even some you didn’t know you needed.
