I will read. We will chat. I will sign copies. And we will all leave happy.
The first in a series, Other Wise introduces a cast of characters who will find their way into your dreams and beyond.
Sixty-two-year-old Margaret Meader is both a native Mainer and an outsider. Though she’s not “from away,” many in her community deem her an oddity — an other. Plain-spoken and direct, Margaret is gifted with second sight — an intuitive ability to see beyond ordinary perception and distill what is seen to its practical essence. For decades her gift has benefitted many while frightening others, often making her a target for jealousy, suspicion, and hatred.
She has her friends and protectors, including young Emily Donne whom Margaret encourages to recover abandoned gifts of her own, deal with the mystery that is her mother, and learn who her long dead father truly was. But even as Margaret supports friends in need and helps find those who are lost, some very old business is coming back around, setting the stage for confrontations rooted in tragedies of the past.
I hope to see you on the 14th and may Margaret’s story land gently on your heart.
