My novel, THE WINTER LOON, is a story about the healing power of love.
Ruth Thompson, a young woman from Minnesota, finds adventure on a rodeo circuit where she earns her university tuition and has the first hint she is attracted to women. Back home at university, she falls in love with Gisela. Faced with losing everyone and everything dear to her, Ruth must adapt to a new way of life. Her journey reveals what can happen when the abyss between desire and the threat of persecution must be conquered to find the meaning of unconditional love.
“This is an ambitious, gripping, often painful story with a lot of drama and emotion, ups and downs and an ending that leaves the reader in satisfying tears.”
“What a beautiful, thoughtful book. The Winter Loon offers up complex characters and issues, a multi-textured plot and lots of heart. I have felt wrapped in the cocoon of this beautiful love story.”
