About And the Whippoorwill Sang

AndtheWhippoorwillSangThe elusive whippoorwill swoops down the mountains. Through night into dawn its song mourns summer’s loss–as I cry mine.

And the Whippoorwill Sang, a 300 page memoir, opens with eloping teenagers, Micki and Butch, in a bizarre double wedding ceremony with Micki’s mother. The couple share comical escapades, spanning decades. A terrible accident occurs in a placid valley nestled in the Susquehanna Mountains. Micki narrates happier days while confronting an uncertain future. One of her six children is fighting for life in the hospital. The family embarks upon its unbearable journey to the other side of sorrow…

You can buy the book at Amazon.
