On a warm summer day in Berlin, Helena is hit by a truck while crossing the street. She awakens to the loving face of her husband Joachim. In addition to a few broken bones, she realizes she can’t remember anything about the accident, or even the last few years leading up to it. Retrograde amnesia the doctors call it and assure her that with time, she should regain her memory.

At loose ends after another botched relationship, Joachim doesn’t intend to lie to his estranged wife, Helena. But when he realizes that she doesn’t remember their separation, he can’t bring himself to tell her. So he does what any rational man would do: he takes her home and pretends they were never apart.

As the lies accumulate, Helena senses something isn’t quite right—that her husband is hiding something. When the outside world encroaches, Helena must face an unsettling truth and decide what the past will mean for their future. Is the past binding, or can she go back and change what went wrong in their relationship? And if given the chance, would she even want to?

Women’s Fiction/Short Stories

What She Was SayingWhat She Was Saying
By Marjorie Maddox
Publisher: Fomite
Published: March 2017
ISBN: 978-1942515685
ASIN: B06XBGPLTG
Genre: Fiction, Short Stories, Women’s Fiction, Literary Fiction
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers in the U.S.)

In these powerful stories, What She Was Saying softens the already thin line between hope and hopelessness, between perseverance and despair, between what can and cannot be said. Throughout the collection, diverse women startle, question, comfort, and proclaim, compelling readers to confront a company of others: a young woman who mistakes a Jehovah’s Witness for her therapist; a mother who shields an ill daughter; an elderly artist who sculpts her adopted family; a daughter of an itinerant preacher who plays her role; a lonely copy editor who fakes bruises; and—in front of many witnesses—a parachutist who jumps to her death. This collection also echoes the historical and literary voices of Rachel Robinson, Nora’s daughter in A Doll’s House, the wives of famous men named Peter, Lot’s daughters, and soldiers Jessica Lynch and Lynndie England. You will hear voices raised in prayer, lowered to whispers, slowed by fear, and silenced by anger. A finalist for the Katherine Anne Porter and Eludia book awards—as well as a semifinalist for Black Lawrence Press’s Hudson, Eastern Washington University’s Spokane, and Leapfrog Press’s book prizes—What She Was Saying gives voice to the lives we all need to hear.

Desdemona, a pianist in the Austin life-music scene, is channel-surfing when she stumbles upon the program Marriage Exposure. The trashy television show gets people to spill all the secrets of their sex lives, and Desdemona’s ex-boyfriend just happens to be a guest. To her shock and horror, Desdemona’s ex announces on national television that he dumped her because she never got the big O. “She faked…,” he says. Every single time.

Her life is wrecked! If her friends, family and colleagues haven’t seen the interview yet, they will.

How do you survive a scandal like this? How did he know she faked? And why is it that in the bedroom, Desdemona never, ever gets lucky?

The lovable, creative and quirky heroine tackles these challenges. As Desdemona tries to run damage control on her reputation, she begins to explore her sexuality.

Contemporary Women’s Fiction – A Long Thaw

A Long ThawA Long Thaw
By Katie O’Rourke
Publisher: Brown House Books
ISBN: 978-1494857103
ASIN: B00UDI9JRO
Genre: Contemporary fiction, women’s fiction, new adult
Formats Available For Review: Kindle

A multi-generational story about the power of secrets and the unbreakable bonds of family.

A Long Thaw is about two female cousins who were close as children and reconnect as adults. Abby and Juliet were born into one big, close, Catholic family. But the divorce of Juliet’s parents fragments this family and sends the girls in very different directions.

Juliet grows up too quickly, on the west coast, forced to be responsible for her younger sisters as well as an alcoholic, single mother. On the east coast, Abby grows up a pampered, sheltered only child. As women, they try to mend the rift and come to terms with the way their shared history connects them in spite of the years apart.

This book has been published traditionally and I’m re-releasing it on my own.
