But navigating life with a difficult man and a daughter and son who make risky choices, she is sent careening down dangerous paths. Set from the mid-60’s to the mid-90’s, the novel explores a woman’s personal journey through career, marriage and raising a family in a time of profound cultural change.


Kirkus Reviews

“A painfully honest, moving family saga—and first novel—by sculptor, professor, and multigenre author Peck.…a candid portrayal of the challenges encountered by a successful professional woman balancing work, marriage and motherhood. …the novel is a touching, no-holds-barred depiction of a dysfunctional family on the brink of brokenness. Peck proves herself to be as much an artist with words as she is with other media.”
