  • Great Read!

    I have never read a novel like this, a woman sharing her most intimate thoughts with her husband who committed suicide. It sounds depressing, but it isn’t. Jenny is struggling to make a new life for herself and her children. Everything is new to her in California—her job, dating, adjusting to California, which seems almost like a foreign country after living in the Northeast. And then there is the past, healing from her husband’s suicide. Once I started reading it was hard to stop. The writing is spellbinding. This book is a real find!

  • REALITIES is a moving novel.

    “The book is by turns humorous, witty, moving, upbeat. Jenny is a warm, sensitive heroine. It’s a pleasure to watch her and a privilege to eavesdrop on her thoughts. Highly recommended…” - Marilyn Lockhart, LIBRARY JOURNAL “The author endows Jenny and her circle with attributes that make them linger in one’s memory.”- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY “Realities is an intricate and satisfying novel.”- Alannah Hopkin, TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

  • A Moving Book

    There are no chapters in this novel. Instead, each entry that Jenny Weaver (the heroine of the book) makes is separate. I found it strange at first because I'm used to chapters, but soon it made sense. Each time she wrote to her dead husband was a new entry that made the story seem even more real. Jenny is lost and alone with her two children in California after moving there from the Northeast after her husband 's suicide when the novel opens. As she writes to him, you get a picture of their past life and the ambition that led to their downfall. Her observations about her life in California are on target, funny and true, as are her observations about things like giving children names like "Judge" to give them a head start in life. She made me see things I hadn't thought about before. The end of this novel is deeply moving. You'll care about Jenny and her children as she comes to terms with her husband's suicide. It is a journey of healing that's beautifully written. Don't miss it!

    Thanks for your feedback!
