Margaret Matlin is a thirtysomething woman who dares to pursue the ultimate goal of womanhood: absolute happiness. Spurred on by a prophetic dream and blessed with beauty, a secure intelligence, and an avaricious drive, she chooses to go after what will satisfy her maximum sensibility.

Leaving behind the restrictive profession of teaching English—which she feels has sapped her creativity—Margaret decides to expand her horizons and let a more conscious fate be her guide. She pledges to find her truth in the world, setting out to build a brand-new life for herself with the help of those around her. Along the way, she befriends many, finding infinite wisdom and insight into how our individual destinies can be suppressed for so long and yet be uplifting and rewarding once discovered.

Offering an intriguing character study, this novel follows the path of one woman as she re-creates herself in the pursuit of a “happiness too good for words.”

Since the horrific night a drunk driver slammed into their car during his driving lesson, young Teddy has had to live with the memory of seeing his beloved father, Stan, die. Now just sixteen, he carries both sorrow and survivor’s guilt.

Concerned for her grieving son, Mary decides to put as much distance as she can between Teddy and the nightmarish Phoenix intersection that claimed Stan’s life. She moves the family to Stan’s small Indiana hometown, a place of peace in which she hopes they can build new memories. There, Teddy finds inspiration in an old book his great-grandfather carried with him to America, a book Bulgarian fathers have always read to their sons.

Is Stan reaching out to his son from the grave?

Mary also makes an equally life-changing discovery in the small town—Rosetta, Stan’s high school sweetheart. The deeper Mary digs, the more she learns of the forbidden love Stan and Rosetta shared. During the Civil Rights Movement, they dared to reach out for love across racial lines.

Now as their three lives intertwine, Teddy, Mary, and Rosetta must make difficult choices. Will they choose happiness? Or will old pains cause them to live as victims of circumstances?

Beginning in 1912 on Ellis Island and told in three voices over four generations, I’ll Always Be with You is a profound celebration of the power of family.

Thirty-two-year-old Candida Darroway, an Italian professor at Altamonte, a small college near San Francisco, searches for her identity. Still single, but in a relationship, she knows she needs to get her personal life in gear. She’s offered an opportunity she can’t pass up. The college is sponsoring a fund-raising, three-week luxury art tour to Italy, the equivalent of traveling for gastronomy and Renaissance art. Her colleague, Professor Rob Ferrell, would act as the art history leader and Candida would be the cultural leader. For some reason, she feels this trip will prove her own Renaissance. So begins a tour filled with misfits, art analysis, and gourmet cuisine, where Candida becomes Ferrell’s scapegoat for what goes wrong. The group—a mixed bag—favors Ferrell’s leadership, ostracizing Candida. She yearns for Professor Wes Spotswood, a man twenty-one years her senior, with whom she is having a torrid affair. During the trip, medieval Italy pulses under Renaissance skin, drunkards reform, and old flames rekindle. In the end, Altamonte’s tour offers more than an appreciation of art and history. Candida discovers powers of judgment and social interaction. Other destinations have opened up grander vistas to her than even her beloved Italian Renaissance offered.

“The off ramp came as a surprise. Mechanically, I turned the steering wheel. Windshield wipers were keeping time with the pulsing bass pumping out the amp in the trunk, rain sliced through the night sky pelting a dreary line of soulless metallic shells. My knuckles were white, my palms sweaty. As I tried to light a cigarette, the numbness permeating my whole body intensified in my thumb, thwarting my attempts to spark the lighter. I had lost too much blood. Tears came rushing to my eyes, but I stifled them with a long snort. This was no time for weakness. It did not matter that I was alone in the car.

 

Weakness is a choice. Certainly there are those who are predisposed to weakness, to cowardice, but it is inevitably a choice for which there is no excuse. One may point to past traumatic experiences, one may use their upbringing to rationalize character defects, but it always comes down to a choice. People choose to be weak, and that for me was not a choice. Well, it was a choice, but one that would ultimately lead to either prison or the grave.”

Santa Cecilia is a medium-sized university town in the Texas Hill Country. The townies and gownies get along well enough, and most folks accept their neighbors of all colors, creeds, and orientations. The Unitarian Universalist church downtown is just another house of worship, albeit a bit more liberal than average for a Texas town. The UU’s enjoy their jobs (mostly), help their less fortunate neighbors, and raise healthy, intelligent children. It’s all just too good to last.

After a popular, outspoken intern minister arrives, important objects start disappearing, then reappearing. Accounts get hacked, windows get broken, and a well-known church member is found strangled. And then it gets really weird.

A large ensemble cast of members and friends put heads and hearts together to figure out who is sabotaging their beloved church—and why. Many of them don’t consider themselves religious, but they will defend this church to the death if necessary. In their struggle, they find unlikely allies, bizarre misdirections, great vegan Tex-Mex, killer margaritas, excellent weed, the joys and perils of polyamory, and Transylvanian hospitality that can’t be beat.

In the early 1990’s in America, anti-abortion sentiments led to increasing violence toward clinics and the caregivers who bravely defied public opposition. In this novel, three people with their own compelling backgrounds are drawn into the struggle.

Phil, an idealistic young doctor committed to women’s reproductive choice, thinks he’s ready for anything when he opens his clinic in eastern New York State.

Jenna, another doctor in their residency, with an unwanted pregnancy in her own family, finds her commitment to choice merged with an unspoken love.

Adele struggles to support Phil’s choice of work, but with growing resentment longs for calm and safety around the birth of her own child.

In the midst of escalating threats and protests, the world of the clinic is upended when a young patient’s problem and an eager staff member’s empathy lead inexorably to a startling act of violence. As Phil, Jenna and Adele confront the tragedy, the grief and despair left in its wake threaten both the clinic and their relationships. Each finds personal choices to make, driven by desire, loyalty, and loss—until another act of violence changes the direction of each life.
