About the Book

It’s another Mother’s Day and Miranda is still not pregnant. Her unsuccessful attempts have left her defeated and despondent. Everyone, it seems, is a mother except her. As she prepares to spend another Mother’s Day surrounded by family, Miranda must come to terms with how her infertility has affected her relationship with her husband, her sisters and her friends. But the ultimate challenge is learning to forgive her own body for its betrayal and recognizing when hope has changed from an ally to a foe.

About the Author

Lynne's love of the written word began early. An avid Nancy Drew reader in elementary school - the highlight of her week was going to the store with her father and buying the next book in the series. When the day arrived that she was able to solve the mystery half way through - she reluctantly set them aside and moved on to other books. For as long as she can remember, she has been prodded to "get her nose out of the book" when vacationing with friends. Her love of mystery and suspense is as strong today as it was back then and she is a voracious reader of thrillers and suspense.

She wrote her first book, Circle Dance, with her sister Valerie. Circle Dance was a legacy of love fueled by the desire to pass on to their children the traditions and experiences unique to them as second generation Greek Americans. Lynne was raised in a close-knit family surrounded but extended family and "adopted" family through the Greek community. Both she and her sister wanted to leave a legacy for their children and future generations of a bygone era. Lynne attended Hellenic College where she earned her undergraduate degree in Human Development. She went on to earn her masters degree in Business Administration at Johns Hopkins University. She has an extensive marketing background and over eighteen years of business experience. She left the corporate world in 2000 to pursue her writing full time. She has written for magazines and journals but her true passion is fiction. A native of Baltimore, Maryland, Lynne relocated to the New York area with her husband and children. In addition to her writing, she is active in her church and local community. She serves on the board of her town's Women's League - a philanthropic organization dedicated to helping women and children. She is passionate about education, reading, health, and wellness. She enjoys traveling, spending time on the beach and talking walks with her family and their adorable golden retriever. Lynne is currently at work on her next book, a thriller.
