As a widow, Ellen is confronted with decisions that she feels inadequate to make. For the first time she must take charge of her own life and that of her three almost-grown daughters. Loneliness and fear of inadequacy sap her energy, the girls drain her emotionally and the first man he dates -- well, the dating scene has changed drastically from what she remembered.
When she meets Drew Yardley, a man with a wonderful sense of the ridiculous, the middle child violently rejects him, another tells her to “go for it, Mom,” and yet another rebels but gives in finally to his charm. The biggest obstacle of all, however, is the fact that Drew is already married, and there is no option of divorce. The timing and circumstance is incredibly wrong for Ellen and Drew. As they wrestle with the integrity of an impossible situation, the middle daughter slides deeper and deeper into a troubled world, complicating any decisions they make. Ellen realizes she will have to choose between one of her children and Drew.

About The Author
My byline has appeared on everything from children's literature to senior citizen fiction, from news writing to poetry, fiction and non-fiction. I have taught a successful Creative Writing course and been involved in a program teaching adults to read. Credits include Wings ePress, Inc. as well as placing in national contests and a Writing Excellence Award from my college.
I have a loving and supportive husband and two grown daughters, who have given me a total of eight perfect, handsome and intelligent grandchildren. (So says this prejudiced grandmother.) Since my first memory, music and books have been my passion. When I took the SATs, I was the only in my entire 11th grade class who knew the author of Anne Of Green Gables. Music continues to feed my soul. I have sung in choral groups all across the eastern half of the U.S., done solo and ensemble work and am currently a member of a large chorale. Today I have books in every room in my house, and never go out the front door without reading material under my arm. With equal passion, I avoid cooking and cleaning house.
