BOOK RELEASE DATE
If Big Little Lies met Fried Green Tomatoes, this is it.
Kristin Murphy doesn’t like change. Ten years after her divorce, she feels whole again. Her southern farmhouse isn’t the mansion she walked away from, but it grounds her young family like roots through red clay. Generations of bitter divorcées ended with her, as she models the mother she always wanted. It’s the makings of a blended family success story.
Until she’s blindsided.
The fog lifts after a well-orchestrated custody coup d’état and change stands on Kristin’s doorstep, cloaked in fear. She never imagined fighting to remain relevant in the legacy she created, but she’s here now.
Family secrets are exposed.
Psychological warfare takes its toll.
Will Kristin return to the role of responsible parent or will she succumb to a twisted past she vowed to bury?
Note from the author: The content in this book may be emotionally challenging for some. Out of respect for my readers, I've created a list of potentially triggering material because preserving your mental health is more important to me than sharing spoilers.
As an only child, growing up in Georgia, I found myself imagining stories and characters in my head. Writing became an outlet for me after my parents divorce in the mid-80s. I credit my mother for encouraging me to read and journal to help escape my sadness. During the summer, she would take me to the local library and tell me to read as much as I could until she could get off of work.
In college, I craved anything to do with life and health sciences. I received a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from the University of Virginia and pursued a successful career in critical care medicine. My passion for healthcare drove me toward research and nurse leadership positions, but I continued to indulge my artistic brain. After my divorce, I found myself in a familiar position as a single mother working two jobs and raising two young girls. My mother rescued me by providing free childcare, so I didn't have to leave my daughters at the local library. She encourages them to read and journal, too.
Today, I still practice nursing at local heath fairs and I'm an advocate for Family Court Reform. My husband and I live on a mini-farm and dream of being homesteaders. We also enjoy travel, lake or mountain activities, and spending time with our children and three dogs.
