Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)

Motherhood is never easy, but at times it can be.  I see mothers shedding ponds as their children grow up and move on with their lives. I bawled when my kids first began school. So how am I going to handle them going away?
I guess I have all these years to prepare bit by bit right? But I supposed it will not be easy even as the day arrives.

Have you had to let go of a child for adulthood? Have you thought of how you'll handle letting go of a child?

As a picturesque mother and wife, forty-one year old Avery Richards seems to have it all. Married to a successful veterinarian named Noah and mother to a spunky daughter named Kara, her life is far from awful but she is stuck.

With the recent move of their daughter, who has just flown the coop for college, this story examines the deep and often-tumultuous bond between mother and child and the lengths we are willing to go to, as mothers, to sacrifice our own happiness for the ones we love.

As we watch Avery walk through her ‘new’ way of daily life, without her ambitious and stubborn child around to mother any longer, we are given a very unique opportunity to tip toe in the front row of their lives, from three very separate views. We will see life as it plays out through her mature and motherly eyes, through Kara’s young and sheltered heart, and then through ‘someone else’s eyes’ that has a vested interest in them both.

As Avery’s well-hidden web of lies come crashing down in an unexpected way, her secrets that she’s safeguarded for years will threaten to rip her peaceful world apart, as well as the world of the ones she loves most. As readers, we will watch how ONE single choice can alter everything. Each character will then be forced to examine what the true meaning of love and forgiveness means to them.

Every gamut of emotion will be explored: humor, sadness, love, joy, betrayal, hate, and forgiveness. Bond of Love will leave you pondering the age-old question: How well do YOU actually know the ones you love most?

  1. They act up so bad during their teens that you know they're ready to get out and get some life lessons on their own. :) :) :) Sorry...I couldn't resist. You know I didn't want my babies to leave when they grew up. I still miss them, and I'm counting the days until they are home for the holidays!

    1. Ooh I'll have to get all prepared for this :) Why you bursting my bubble Rosey :)

      I know you'll be having a wonderful time with them home.

      Take tons of photos!

  2. This article was awesome. It made me think of something I have read previously.

  3. My favorite childhood memory is not so much a memory as it is two books. Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs and Alexander Who Used To Be Rich Last Sunday. I read those books so many times. I still have one of them.


  4. Oh my ;-) when my son left for college, I was very happy for him. :-)

  7. My favourite childhood memory is of visiting my gran in Barbados with my mum and sister. You could look out from an upstairs window through a small gap across the street and see the sea.

  8. My favorite childhood memory was going on a camping trip up to Big Sur with my parents. We would sit outside near the river by our cabin and read to each other then go inside and play card games till we fell asleep !

  9. When a child leaves home it is a bittersweet moment. We work so hard daily to ready them for that moment and yet a part of us leaves when they go. My children tell me they hear my words all the time and I am so grateful they are all nearby.

    1. That is so true Judy.
      Thank you for sharing.

  10. I remember learning to cook with my grandmother.

  11. Christmas with my brother.

  12. My favorite childhood memory would have to be playing Land Before Time on my little Tikes slide and eating lettuce, haha. :)

  13. My father teaching me to fish.
