Love, lust, and family secrets: Linda K. Sienkiewicz writes about ordinary people on extraordinary journeys of self-discovery.
My novel, IN THE CONTEXT OF LOVE, will be published in 2015 by BuddhaPuss Ink LLC:
Angelica Schirrick wonders how her life could have gotten so far off track. Recently divorced from her felon husband, their two children in tow, she begins a journey of self-discovery that leads her back home to Ohio, where family secrets burn like swallowed coal. Is it ever too late to find your path in life—to leave your past and the truth that haunts you behind? Can a first love, once lost, then found again, become lasting and true? How can Angelica end the lies? These are the questions at the heart of Linda Sienkiewicz’s In the Context of Love.
Jacquelyn Mitchard, best-selling author of Deep End of the Ocean, says: “With humor and tenderness, but without blinking, Linda K. Sienkiewicz turns her eye on the predator-prey savannah of the young and still somehow hopeful.”
“Linda’s writing is arresting. She grabs you on page one and pulls you through the story with speed, never once losing her grip on your attention,” says MaryChris Bradley, Publisher at Buddhapuss Ink. “Her work is a worthy addition to our rapidly growing list and we’re delighted to have her with us.”
