Witch way to Tree’s Hollow?

After her latest breakup, Lenora “Lenny” Brewer has had it up to the tippy top with her life in the city. Her job as an online gossip writer isn’t what she had planned when she graduated from college with a Journalism degree, and making it to her early thirties without a husband or children wasn’t exactly what she’d planned either.

The day after she had to dump her almost-fiance for emptying out her savings account, Lenny goes into work, and her dreadful boss tells her she’s got to write a scathing story about her favorite pop music princess.

Well, that’s a step too far. Lenny quits her job, packs her things, and flees the city for her Aunt’s bed and breakfast just outside the Shawnee Forest.

When she finds out that the small town where her Aunt lives still has a local paper, and they need an investigative reporter, it’s almost too good to be real.

Add in a hunky park ranger, and Lenny starts to think that Tree’s Hollow is a wish come true. There’s only one thing that could mess up her perfect new home, and that’s a touch of magic.

What Lenny doesn’t know is that she’s a dormant witch, and taking control of her life unlocks powers inside of her that she didn’t even know existed.

Oh, and there’s the small matter of the murder that occurs shortly after Lenny arrives at the Tree’s Hollow Bed and Breakfast. The death of a local curmudgeon has the town on edge, and the county sheriff stumped.

Will she learn to harness the craft brewing inside of her, or will trouble boil over and destroy everything she comes to love?

Sylvia Plath: A Biography – Amazon

“Holds a reader’s interest from beginning to end. An impressive job of revealing this complex, precocious, talented and haunted woman.” Caroline R. Barnard Hall, The Philadelphia Inquirer

It has been just over 50 years since Sylvia Plath committed suicide, and her place in American letters is secure.

Today she is widely recognized as one of the outstanding poets of the century.

When her Collected Poems was published it won the Pulitzer Prize. Her only published novel, The Bell Jar, has become a modern classic.

Because Plath drew so heavily on her own life in both her poetry and her fiction, the outlines of her life are familiar to readers.

But, like most writers, Plath changed the facts of her life in her writing.

In this biography, the first to draw on unpublished journals and letters recently made available, Linda Wagner-Martin examines the ironies and contradictions of Sylvia Plath’s life, as well as her achievements.

Everyone who knew Plath described her as talented, attractive, out-going and seemingly self-assured. Yet in her diaries and letters Plath reveals herself racked by insecurities and doubts.

An outstanding and popular student, she attempted suicide while she was still in college, and ten years later she was only just beginning to achieve recognition as a writer when she ended her life. Yet she had a remarkable ability to transform her suffering into art: her anger at the collapse of her marriage, for example, became the remarkable poetry of Ariel, most of which she wrote in a single month.

Linda Wagner-Martin traces the origins of Plath’s lifelong emotional problems to the untimely death of her father and to the complex relationship that Plath and her mother developed.

Ironically, Plath would find herself in a situation similar to her mother’s when she separated from her husband, poet Ted Hughes, and faced the prospect of trying to launch her writing career while raising two young children.

In her determination to be both wife and mother, on the one hand, and teacher and writer on the other, Plath tried simultaneously to fulfill and to fight the conventions that bound women in the 1950s.

Throughout her life Plath felt herself pulled in opposing directions. Her genius as a writer lay in her ability to express her complicated emotional life in poetry and fiction that continue to move us today.
