I’m so excited about the upcoming release of my new book MENDING FENCES on June 19. It’s a book about family. Specifically, the book revolves around a widowed father and his four daughters: Sharon, Kathy, Patti, and Helen.
My mom and dad had six girls. Actually they had three girls, waited ten years, then had another three girls. We were never all under one roof at the same time. When the second set of girls was born, I was the only older daughter in the house, which meant I was the “chosen one” for babysitting. However, at the age of ten, when my mother had my first baby sister, I was absolutely thrilled to be able to take care of a real live baby. It was almost a dream come true. By the time the next two babies arrived, I had that whole babysitting gig down! I cooked, fed, bathed, and read books for the three younger kids until I moved out of the house to go to college.
In MENDING FENCES, the problems the four girls tackled in their early years linger into their adult lives. Dealing with their troubles is difficult and oft times heartbreaking. But as in all of my books, there’s a happy ending that I hope will satisfy the reader’s hunger for a satisfying story.
