A WOMAN WHO LOVED LINDBERGH

MUTUAL AID cover During the summer of 1952, thirteen-year-old Lydia Dearborn must navigate into the unknown toward the horizon of maturity, discovering the terrors and responsibilities of adventure and independence, and always aware of her mother’s hero, Charles Lindbergh, who had made a historic first flight across an unexplored sky. The story shifts backward and forward through generations and years, focusing on a daughter who in one summer grows to understand her mother—and, through her mother, herself. The fictional story is illustrated with photos from Ruth's own family album.

An early e-book, in PDF;. the file will be e-mailed to you within 24–48 hours. Despite its age, the PDF can easily be read on any app where you read PDF documents.

MUTUAL AID

MUTUAL AID cover

As its heroine, Mercy Blodgett, says of herself, she seems to be related to almost everybody in the small town of Chiswick, New Hampshire—and to those she isn’t, her husband, Bob, is likely to be. Just when a mill closing in 1986 costs the Blodgetts their jobs, the town is suddenly terrorized by an arsonist, and heart attacks may cost Bob his life.

The title refers to the emergency system in which fire departments from neighboring towns assist each other, but it also emphasizes the interdependence of all people, whether they are family, friends, or—as with Mercy and the young man who has become her pen pal—strangers at the outset. The word “aid” also brings to mind the term “AIDS,” and this too is part of the story.

ONE MINUS ONE

MUTUAL AID coverAfter a devastating divorce, Emily Bean leaves her home to work as a teacher in New Hampshire’s coastal region. She struggles to adjust to single life in the freewheeling sixties, a time of turmoil for the United States—an era that comes vividly alive through frequent references to the food, drink, and dress of the times. Noted one Goodreads reader, “I wanted Emily to find love and to find herself, all the while worrying that the two goals might not be compatible for her quite yet.” Selected by Nancy Pearl as part of her “Book Lust” series for Amazon.com.
Available in print, Kindle, and audiobook..
