Slocum women are tough. In my newest poignant, southern-charmer series, I explore the inter-generational power of love to triumph over tragedy.

Twenty-five years ago, the Slocum women buried their mother-daughter relationship in the Frio River and went their separate ways. Sara and Charlotte can pretend a weekly long-distance call fulfills their family obligation until Sara falls and breaks her hip. Now Charlotte must drop everything and fly to Texas. Charlotte’s short-term caregiving plans are dashed when she realizes her aging mother needs long-term care. While Sara struggles to regain her independence, Charlotte grapples with the impossible task of juggling a slightly demented mother, a high-pressure job, and a rebellious teenager daughter.  

But unless these two women can release the fossilized secret sandwiched between them, the next generation will never fly.

The Women of Fossil Ridge Series is a touching addition to the small town, generational series of favorite authors like Ann B. Ross, Jan Karon, and Beth Hoffman.

FINALLY FREE takes you back to the Frio river that cuts through the Texas hill country. In the heartwarming conclusion of this multi-generational family saga, three strong women struggle to love those who don’t deserve it.  

In theory, Charlotte knows her decision to move home to care for her aging mother is necessary. In practice, putting her life on hold to unite a group of quirky strangers requires an impossible measure of patience, laughter, and grace. 

Sara doesn’t know how long she can continue to battle the thick fog hijacking her mind. She wants to spend her last days repairing her family, but most days she can’t even remember where she left her shoes. How long before she can no longer remember those who matter most?
