In the Context of Love
Publisher : Buddhapuss Ink LLC
Description

Is it ever too late to leave your past and the secrets that haunt you behind?
Angelica Schirrick wonders how her life could have gotten so far off-track. With her two children in tow, she leaves her felon husband and begins a journey of self-discovery that leads her back home to Ohio. It pains her to remember the promise her future once held, that time before the disappearance of her first love, and the shattering revelation that derailed her life and divided her parents. Only when she finally learns to accept the violence of her beginning can she be open to life again, and maybe to a second chance at love.

"Sienkiewicz's powerful and richly detailed debut novel is at once a love story, a cautionary tale, and an inspirational journey. In the Context of Love should be required reading for all wayward teenage girls and their mothers, too. ~ Bonnie Jo Campbell, author of the National Book Award Finalist American Salvage, and the National Bestseller, Once Upon a River
"Absorbing, heartbreaking, compulsively-readable and insightful, Linda Sienkiewicz's In the Context of Love casts a hypnotic spell. This is storytelling at its best." ~ Lewis Robinson, author of the critically acclaimed, Officer Friendly: and Other Stories, and Water Dogs
"In her dynamic first novel, Linda K. Sienkiewicz takes you on a wild roller coaster ride through love's lowest lows and highest highs, from dark acts of sexual violence to kisses that taste like freedom.

Sienkiewicz is a wise, vivid and vital new voice in fiction." ~ Elizabeth Searle, author of the Boston Globe Bestseller, A Four-Sided Bed
