A Mingled Yarn

First runner-up in 2000 San Diego Book Awards, Unpublished Novel

Reunited? Or Bizarre Coincidence?

     The heroine of A Mingled Yarn, having given up her baby girl for adoption 23 years before, encounters a young woman who may or may not be her daughter. This exciting mainstream novel has the feel and pace of a mystery, but the mystery is solved in none other than the human heart

     Memorable scenes heighten the speed of the plot as the main characters race from San Diego, California and Evergreen, Colorado, through the Rocky Mountains from the Wyoming Tetons to the ranch house of the natural father near Billings, Montana. At the novel's resolution, the reader is transported to Southern France, a perfect setting for the suprise ending.

     A good, fast-paced read, A Mingled Yarn has something for everyone - suspense, romance and the exploration of a mother's love.

     "I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a book that holds your interest from the first page to the last."
