Anxious about the wreckage piling up in her life, Magdalena decides to settle the mystery surrounding her past. She discovers that a secret love affair between her birth parents years earlier began to unravel just as the political environment in Nazi Germany was bleeding over into neighboring states. Nazi death squads were on the move, hunting “undesirables.” Faced with slow starvation, Magdalena’s Gypsy mother made one fateful decision - one that marked the beginning of her gradual descent into madness.
A story about forgiveness, The Weaver’s Loom explores the struggles of two beautiful cultures, bound together by the great human tragedy, the Holocaust. This is no political novel. It is an illumination of an enduring friendship between two unlikely women with an indomitable will to live, and a story about the special bond between Romanies and Jews, of which the Romanies, and a good many Jews, are keenly aware.

About The Author
The second of three children, I grew up in a working-class neighborhood near Chicago. At 18 years of age, I enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and moved across the continental United States before finally settling in Hawaii. I traveled extensively throughout the Pacific rim during my five years in the Hawaiian Islands, eventually returning to the Midwest in 1995. I now live with my husband and two children in a quiet farming community along Somonauk Creek. I have published numerous short stories and poems and was a featured artist at the “Art Around the Fox” fine arts festival in recognition of my published work.
