Blackbird, my first fiction novel illustrates Jane Bertram's story especially the resilience needed to thrive.
The idealized scenes in Norman Rockwell's illustrations seldom reflected the reality of American families, including Jane Bertram's. Her world consists of a mostly absent father and an angry mother who vents her frustration on her daughter.
Jane stubbornly refuses to become a victim, a stance that further infuriates her mother. Despite the overwhelming pain of knowing her mother hates her, Jane is determined to create a new life for herself.
Blackbird, a fictional autobiography, is the first book in a quartet that explores the taboo subject of mother-daughter abuse. The story spans a period in American history when women began to redefine their traditional roles.
People who've read my first novel, Blackbird, have said they couldn't put it down.
