After more than fifteen years since I began writing it, Wounded Angels finally published today! I have worked hard to make this story the best it can be and I look forward to hearing your feedback. Here are some quick answers to questions you might have.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT? In case you are unfamiliar with the story line, in Wounded Angels, you will follow the life of Maureen Russo, living in Brooklyn, New York at age 14, to her mid-eighties, living in suburban Connecticut. You will share in the teenage trauma that leaves her with a life-long fear of abandonment. You will experience her love, courtship, and fifty-plus year marriage to Frank and her and Frank's determination to overcome prejudice, war, and separation. You will share in her grief and utter devastation following Frank's death, until she meets Doris, an uncontrollable social misfit who becomes her unlikely best friend and confident. You will follow their quirky and sometimes hilarious misadventures and you will cheer Maureen as she finds love again, late in life. That second chance at love, however, will make you wonder, with Maureen, how her daughters will react to her newfound love and how it will affect her relationship with Doris. Through it all, you and Maureen will contemplate how God has acted throughout her life and the strange angels He has provided along the way.
