FAMILY SHADOWS by Kate Kitchen
It is the summer of 1959. Volare' and Johnny Ray's The Little White Cloud that Cried are playing on the Hit Parade. Elizabeth Webster, 17, a slender copper-haired beauty, is preparing to become a concert pianist despite a totally dysfunctional family life that consistently tries to threaten her positive spirit. From a small southern Ohio town to campus life at Ohio University and on to London society, we share Elizabeth's conflicts as she struggles to overcome family shadows to become the woman she is meant to be. This story will appeal to anyone who recalls his first love and loss; it will appeal to those who grew up in a small town; it will appeal to the human heart.
