Some of you on Gather have asked to be notified when my latest novel became available. It can be purchased through all book stores, Amazon.com, B & N. etc., also through my website http://www.paintings-prose-palmbeach.com. and my publisher, Author House.com. For autographed copies, e-mail me at MariePin001@comcast.net.
SPANISH MOSSÂ takes the reader on a tempting tour of food, fun and frolic in New Orleans, the “city that care forgot”. This journey to the exclusive Garden District, the French Quarter, the shores of Lake Pontchertrain, as well as the unique Cajun bayou landscape of Louisiana, will entertain as well as inform.
Drifting in the quiet waters of her professional and personal life, it takes a stormy sailboat ride, a sudden illness, and a serendipitous meeting of a stranger to force Megan to rethink her priorities. Sandwiched between two handsome suitors, one who appreciates her creative nature, and the other who wants to add her to his collection of objet d’art, she finds her seemingly perfect, danger-free life held in the balance; her future uncertain.
Will Megan realize her dream of introducing art to the less fortunate youth of the inner city, or will she choose a more collegiate profession? In matters of the heart, which suitor will she take into her heart and what will be the fate of the one she leaves behind?
SPANISH MOSS offers the reader not only a journey of descriptive prose, but Megan’s story snares the reader into a search for the meaning and realization of true love. The novel also provides an insight into the often illusive psyche of those who play a role in the world of medicine as well as the visual arts.
My two previous novels, Man on the Balcony and Maggie’s Retreat are also available. All three books are suitable for all ages, and make nice gifts for any occasion.
