Is it ever too late to discover who you really are, to find love?
Quiver is an 80,000 word women’s fiction novel about a quest to find the goddess within. It is a story of transformation, of loving, longing and letting go, which celebrates listening to one’s inner voice and spiritual guidance, even if it challenges conventional thinking about age and sexuality.
The echo to a long lost consciousness is at the heart of 49-year-old widowed Eve’s quest to let go of the past, to awaken to life and living again by opening up her cloistered world, reconnecting with the beauty of life and the possibility that love could still be there.
The dark woods of internet dating brings only frogs and the wrong kind of men, yet it reawakens her passion and desires and her secret longing, to discover within herself, Aphrodite – the goddess of love, beauty and passion. Despairing of finding the man of her dreams online, Eve realises she needs greater awareness of her sexual self before searching any further. Like her coveted orchids, she senses an imminent bud that must bloom.
Casting aside her vulnerability and naiveté, doubts and fears and the cultural conditioning experienced by women her age, Eve embarks upon a daring sexual journey - an exploration of mind, body and spirit, culminating in a series of lessons in loving with Anthony, an intelligent, young male escort - in which she confronts the demons of the past and reclaims her sexual power, allowing the goddess within to emerge. And, ultimately, to find love again.
Set in New Jersey, Quiver moves through the seasons in Eve’s lush garden, reflected in the narrative arc (hero’s transformation) in harmony with nature and the cycles of the moon, as Eve marks her sacred rite of passage from widow to woman to goddess.
Whilst there is a sophisticated erotic element to the story, the beauty, sensuality and wonder in the sex scenes is rare, as is the joyous celebration of womanhood blossoming later in life.
