The Gate of Dreams
ISBN: 0963649205 Cranbrook Pr. 1993 Three original fairy tales deal with a dancer who loses her ability to move when she is subjected to an evil governess, a young man who is ridiculed by his neighbors for carving ice sculptures, and a girl who could make bells appear at the snap of her finger
Legacy of Shadows
ISBN: 0966957601 Three Arts Press. 2009 No one goes unaffected by the dreams and failures of our ancestors. In events played out before one is even born, our stories have already begun. Lillian Moats' evocative fictionalized memoir traces the lives of three women whose stories indelibly blend into one during the span of three generations. Intensely moving and untimately hopeful, the story evolved from the author's exploration into the mysterious impact of family history on her own psychology. Moats' distinctive literary style is as much poetry as prose. Conveying psychological nuances in few words, she adopts the format of the journal rather than the novel to explore the legacy of unresolved emotion passed from generation to generation.
