Silent Is The Magpie
by Vanita Oelschlager
Pub Date 01 May 2012
Retired wife and mother goes on a walk-about and finds the self who has haunted
her on the road less traveled. This novel is contemporary fiction with a romance and feminist slant. It is written for women... maybe older women. It is about a woman who finds her sense of identity, power and voice. It might fit the self-help genre but has an adventure/romance element to it. Some have described it as a vision quest.
"They will also realize that we truly never stop growing and learning, and then saying to the world with both feet firmly planted on the ground: ‘This is who I am.' Hurrah for Jamie! Hurrah for us!"
