Confessions from the Pumpkin Patch (The Soul Encounters Book 1)
Growing up in a small Pennsylvania town, Lovella is an intelligent and rebellious child of the '60's. She adores her alcoholic and ineffectual father while despising her controlling mother, and discovers in her teens that the most potent revenge she can take on her mother is through sexually acting out. When she goes away to college she meets Earl, an "ugly hippie" who takes her on a journey through life that she never dreamed she would take. She discovers that things aren't always what they seem, and life seldom turns out the way we planned. There are mysteries surrounding her past that she struggles to understand. In the turbulence of the late 1960's she is forced to face fears and prejudices she never knew she had. She discovers in the end that the simple small town life she left back in Climax, Pennsylvania was not so simple at all, and the true meaning of love and family is something only to be understood with maturity.
