-- Many women will face an awful moment in life. Martha Moffett explores the authority that results in meeting those moments head-on with stubborn values and love in your heart. When a woman has only herself to rely on, it usually turns out that she is sufficient to the task. Women often realize that “No, it is not only our fate but our business to lose innocence, and once we have lost that, it is futile to attempt a picnic in Eden.”--Elizabeth Bowen
Molly finds Fielding Graves on a city street, takes him home, feeds him soup, puts his jeans through the wash, lends him her father’s razor, and marries him. Marrying a man for his beauty flips tradition on its head and seems like a wonderful idea at first. Unfortunately, Fielding squanders their money and quickly loses interest in a settled life soon after they have a son. Habit was a lovely chain leading Molly through life until the mantra of “was I so easy to leave?” puts a chink in her armor. Molly soon is forced to open her home to strangers, questionable masterpieces, romance, and more betrayal when she realizes she can no longer indulge in a “Picnic in Eden.”
The book’s style will appeal to readers who enjoy a woman’s story of love, disenchantment, and eventual self-empowerment all set against Manhattan’s artistic community. It’s a suspense-driven novel filled with love, sex, betrayal and self-discovery.“
Picnic in Eden” is available through Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
