"Life turns you right-side up and upside down and all manner of sideways. But somehow a person can end right-side up again. Not the same, mind you. No. Never the same. But sometimes what a person tumbles through becomes meaningful in the long run."


It was her youngest sister, the one who joined the Army, who'd said it to her. When you're standing in an airplane door with a parachute strapped to your back, either close your eyes and jump, or get out of the way and sit. Prudence had been thinking about that ever since her sister's visit. She was tired of sitting. She'd been tired of it for a long time.


Both of Sam's hands flew to her cheeks. "Oh my!" she gasped. "Oh my!" And then came the giggles. She extended both arms outward like a wooden scarecrow and began to twirl. Around and around, not too fast at first, gaining momentum. Love! There was no doubt about it. They were going to fall in love.


Fifteen women. Fifteen stories. Some happy. Some sad. Some surprisingly weird.

About the Author

Not everyone pecks away at the word processor with an African grey parrot perched on her forearm. Carolyn is the recent author of two popular mysteries based in her adopted hometown, Tuscaloosa Moon and Tuscaloosa Boneyard. She is the 2017 recipient of the Druid City Arts and Humanities Literary Award, and her second mystery enjoyed a fun, positive review on Alabama Public Radio. She holds bachelors and masters degrees from the University of Alabama, and worked professionally as a clinical social worker. As an adolescent, she traveled extensively with her globe-trotting parents, and lived in Tanzania, Lebanon and Pakistan. She shares her home with her husband, two rescue dogs, two parrots, a pond full of koi and myriad volunteer frogs. Carolyn enjoys meeting her readers through book signings, festivals, and book club events.
