Book #1 Description
Therapist Sarah Green is skilled at helping her counseling clients untangle their emotional dilemmas, but doesn’t do so well with her own problems, and she’s got big ones—ghostly visits from a murdered friend, and frightening flashbacks. Then someone starts stalking Maine’s counseling community, and Sarah joins forces with a take-no-prisoners defense attorney, a top-notch private eye, and her office-mate Louise to catch the killer.

With an ex-husband hot to reconcile and the heat turning up with a sexy detective, Sarah struggles to separate past trauma from present danger. When the next life in peril is her own, Sarah realizes she’s stronger than she thinks, and welcomes assistance from this world and the next.

Book #2 Description
An anthology of mothers’ essays by five Maine authors, described by author Monica Wood as “huge and beautiful,” and by author Meredith Hall as “an exceptional read.” In each essay, the authors tell their mothers’ stories, complete with their mothers’ strengths and imperfections, with consideration given to the ways in which circumstances and the social norms of the time compelled their mothers to make certain choices.

The result, according to author Michelle Cacho-Negrete, is a book filled with “light and darkness, of sorrow, anger, tenderness and insight.” Author Pat Taub writes: “This remarkable collection is a love story to women searching for a way to make peace with their mothers...Compassionate Journey belongs on every woman’s bookshelf.”
