The Weeds of Winter
ISBN: 1480926906

Dorrance Publishing Co.. 2016

The Weeds of Winter is a cautionary tale - just like don't talk to strangers, listen to your instincts, and be fearless when sticking up for yourself and your best interests. This is the painful quest of one woman's journey from naivetE to jaded reality. It is also a lesson in the perils of singular decision making without a skill set and a deficit of mentoring. This story warns of the perils of personal isolationism, along with the fear and wariness of intimacy.
