From the Greatest Generation, a love story to remember…
Two soldiers go off to war in Europe. Both from the same neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY. Only one returns home.
Rose Kaufman’s grief is soul deep. Her husband, Joe, had been her one true love, so right for her that a lifetime together wouldn’t be enough. When Charlie Shapiro shows up with stories of Joe, eager to rebuild his war-shattered life with Rose and her baby daughter…she warns that a marriage of convenience would be unfair—to him. She cannot promise her heart to this kind and gentle man.
Through the years, Charlie wonders if love can grow or if he’ll always be second best.
Who is her true love? The man she married with all her heart, or the man who married her with all of his? It’s a question only Rose can answer.

Guilt and blame.
Shaken by tragedy, the Barnes family has fractured. Mother. Father. Son. Each dealing with the pain separately and alone. Holding fast to guilt and blame. Real or imagined.
Claire, an artist who finally follows her dream and encounters a nightmare. Jack, a home builder who thinks he can fix anything—except what matters most. And Ian, a teenage son to be proud of. Until he moves out. Fifty miles away from the darkness at home.
On the verge of divorce when their son’s new life goes terribly awry, Claire and Jack are forced to re-examine their lives in order to save their marriage and heal a family that, according to Ian, “has gone to hell.”
Can they find the road back?
It’s been one year since I re-started my writing career, updated the website and published new books. It’s not that I stopped writing. I can’t even imagine NOT sitting at the computer. Sometimes, however, real life intervenes with our best laid plans. A second bout of breast cancer and all the life-saving treatments—oy vey! A thousand mile move from Texas to Florida. And perhaps, most significant, entering the new world of indie publishing with so much to learn! All these activities took huge amounts of time and energy. I learned that writing my blog twice a week was too big a challenge while trying to develop new books, so after eight months and over sixty essays, I took a break. I’m hoping to restart the blog on a more casual basis. My newsletter is sent out several times a year. Please sign up for it and keep abreast of what’s going on in Linda’s world.
I’m starting over because we all deserve second chances.
All the best,
