Grace, Sam and Dixie have known each other forever. But Grace has a secret. Pregnant and penniless after one drunken night with Sam, she gave up her baby for adoption without telling him. And condemned herself to twenty years of guilt. When her daughter traces her, out of the blue, Grace longs to meet her. But she’s asking about her father and if Grace confesses to Sam after all these years, it will surely wreck his marriage to Dixie. How can their friendship survive such a betrayal? Yet does Grace have a choice?
When the one closest to you is being unfaithful, you must be faithful to yourself.
A shared betrayal experience brings together Yuli, Camille and Ela, three exceptional women whose lives have been devastated by the same woman-crook. In the background is Flora, an inspiring older woman of aristocratic allure, who has survived the horrors of the Nazis and life as refugee, to resume her rightful position in life. Together these women help each other cope with their fate, fight back, overcome, and establish their place in the world.
Survive and Surpass is a story of endless greed and a never-satisfied hunger for power, But also of nobleness, decency and sisterhood. It is a seemingly light, witty and enjoyable novel, yet skillfully inlaid with subtle insinuations on human nature.
A dramatic encounter between four women set against the backdrop of 20th century history.
In this third book of The Val & Kit Mystery Series, Val embarks on a Mother’s Day visit to her mom in Door County, Wisconsin, a peninsula filled with artists, lighthouses, and natural beauty. Her daughter, Emily, has arrived from L.A. to accompany her, and at the last minute her best friend, Kit, invites herself along. Val and Kit have barely unpacked their suitcases when trouble and tension greet them, in the form of death and a disturbing secret they unwittingly brought with them. As they get to know the locals, things take a sinister turn. And when they suspect someone close to them might be involved in blackmail—or worse—Val and Kit do what they do best: they take matters into their own hands in their obsessive, often zany, quest to uncover the truth.
