A lone house sites on a hill, some spare shrubs surround it. There’s a white picket fence, cached with dust but still well mended. Its posts echo the hills rolling beneath. Everything is gentle and nothing seems hard. Why there’s a two-story tower in the middle of the plain…wait, maybe it’s not the middle. From where you are, the plain totally surrounds you. It looks like you could walk miles in either direction and still be nowhere nears its edges.
SHELTER ME intertwines the tribulations of young versus old, love verses dependency, good losses versus bad when two women are thrown into a friendship by events beyond their control. They teach each other to empower their own lives, leave the past behind and embrace their own new future. This novel explores polar-opposite traumas: widowhood, and spousal abuse – topics often explored singularly. Here the author tells of her characters’ pain and grief and how they help each other onto the road to a stable life. Shelter Me should be required reading for all professionals who work with victims of domestic violence and their families. It will serve as an inspiration to those who suffer from such violence as well.
