My second book, The Scars Between Us, is now out and available to purchase. The write up on the book cover tells about Elizabeth’s Secret. It tells of her five year dedication- waiting for her late husband to keep his pledge. The one he made when he promised to come back from the grave. The cover also introduces Joseph and warns that he has a secret of his own.
But while the cover is interesting there was simply not enough room on the back to tell you about what else awaits the reader. Little things that I feel are just as important as the love story within. So please bear with me for a few moments while I have a mini Oscar moment and tell you the story would not be the same without the supporting cast of people and places within the book.
What the cover doesn’t say is that the book is set in the charming New England town of Westerly RI. Westerly is a real town, that is nestled alongside the Pawcatuck River and is loaded with charm.
The cover does not tell you that a great deal of the story takes place in The Ocean House Hotel, a dramatic landmark in the quaint village of Watch Hill.
It does not tell you that Elizabeth Maynes suffers with celiac disease, a connection that helps her to become fast friends with her newest client Sylvia Carmichael-Davenport, a quirky socialite with a quick wit and a very active imagination.
It does not tell you the caretaker of the cemetery Zachariah Odell Davidson, ZOD, is a retired Navy Master Chief who has an answer for everything and always has a story to tell.
While the premise of the book is serious, the storyline is anything but. The quirkiness of the supporting characters will keep you smiling and even laughing out loud on occasion.
So why not take a literally trip to the quaint town of Westerly RI, meet the supporting cast and spend some time getting to know the quirky characters within the pages… Take a relaxing walk through River Bend Cemetery. Stop to smell the honeysuckle and watch as the osprey soars overhead, I’m sure you will enjoy your stay!
