"In the end, we all become stories." Magaret Atwood
Ghost of a Chance, my new novel about the truth behind a family secret my family kept hidden for 150 years, was inspired by the ghost of a young boy soldier who appeared to me one night. I knew then it was time to tell his story.
In a timeless tale of resilience and transformation, Ghost of a Chance transports readers from the present time backward to the Civil War. When three strong women from different eras meet on the eve of a battle, they begin a journey for survival that forges them together in a relationship that lasts through time. Struggling to stay alive they must cope with what they thought they believed, what they know is right, and the dangers of Missouri during the Civil War.
