Brenda Beausoleilabout this book: Primarily, this is a book about the power of friendship. Dr. Jane Norton lives a fairly isolated life and is consumed by her work. When her friend claims to have seen the Virgin Mary, Norton is called on to return home and help persuade her friend to renounce her claim. This is a town, as well as a past, that Norton has struggled very hard to escape. When she returns, she is confronted by those memories, both good and bad, in ways she has not anticipated.
However, her friendship with her old friend, Charlie Price, is a saving grace to Norton as the town turns up the heat to gain a retraction. Norton, despite her instinct to cut and run, stands and fights.
There are many things you leave behind when you escape. Some of those things need to be left on the side of the road. Some of those things need to be picked back up and cherished.
• I began writing this book over a year ago. I put it aside after the death of my mother as some of the themes struck very close to home. After a time, I picked up the threads of the story and wanted very much to finish the journey I had started my characters on.
