The heroine of A Mingled Yarn, having given up her baby girl for adoption 23 years before, encounters a young woman who may or may not be her daughter. "This exciting mainstream novel has the feel and pace of a mystery," says award winning essayist Sue Diaz, "but the mystery is solved in none other than the human heart."
Memorable scenes heighten the speed of the plot as the main characters race from San Diego, California and Evergreen, Colorado, through the Rocky Mountains from the Wyoming Tetons to the ranch house of the natural father near Billings, Montana. At the novel's resolution, the reader is transported to Southern France, a perfect setting for the surprise ending.
A good, fast-paced read, A Mingled Yarn has something for everyone - suspense, romance and the exploration of a mother's love.
About the Author:
Candace Toft, a long time middle school principal, recently accepted a university administrative position to allow more time for her writing. A Mingled Yarn, drawn partly from the author's personal experience, was nominated for the 1998 San Diego Writers' Unpublished Novel Award. Encouraged by novelists Alan Russell and Ken Kuhlken, Toft continued to edit the work until she was satisfied she had created a good, fast-paced read with something for everyone - suspense, romance and the exploration of a mother's love.
Toft has since written an award-winning essay on her experience with breast cancer, "Not Just Another Cancer Story," has completed a second novel and is currently working on her third. The author has three children and lives in San Diego.
