I like lots of space; photography, writing, reading, diddling around on the computer,
playing Poker, spending time with family and friends, walking on the beach, and
hiking through the woods. Author of: The Adventures of a Squirrel Named Peanut,
Twilight Times Books; My Eighteenth Birthday, 1960 suspense-adventure; Solstice; Danger In The Cliffs, Solstice; Saying I Love You, poetry on Amazon's Kindle; The original version of Murders In The
Swampland is available in hard-back books from Xlibris.com; Murders in the Swampland (third edition, updated) true crime now on Amazon Kindle.
Mary is the only black girl she knows who has piercing blue eyes. All of her life, she has wondered where they came from. Her mother, Sadie, won't tell her, Sadie's nutty friend Corinne gets hysterical every time she see her...what to do?
After several episodes where she clearly isn't acting like herself, Mary is involved in an auto mishap and things go downhill/uphill from there. She doesn't believe she is herself; instead stating her name is Kate Wagner and she lives in Red River Parish, Louisiana. On top of that, she is a WHITE woman, not a "colored"!
The plot development of this story was fascinating. Ms Lieb's characters took on a life of their own as well as Mary/Kate's history, present and future. If you read this one, you will not be disappointed by the twists and turns of the plot and of Mary's life. I read it in one sitting and loved every minute!
