Book Overview

After 40 years of marriage, Olivia Glass thought she could handle the unexpected death of her husband. But when Ben’s will reveals a life-altering secret, she suffers a blow no widow should ever experience.

Olivia learns that she gave birth to a baby who later died in the nursery. Instead of telling his wife what happened, Ben switched the child with another. And as if that’s not enough, Ben’s will doesn’t reveal which of their five sons is truly not hers.

While an attorney searches for answers, Olivia visits each of her sons to share a final connection before facing the truth that will change their family, and discovers that each of them has been harboring a painful secret, just like their father.

Olivia challenges herself to re-assemble and save their relationships. But will the secrets destroy their family beyond repair?

365 Challenge: Day 290 – Cane

Posted on

Cane: (a) the hollow, jointed stem of a tall grass, especially bamboo or sugar cane, or the stem of a slender palm such as rattan, or (b) a slender stick, especially one used as a support for plants, as a walking stick, or as an instrument of punishment, or (c) a name spelled differently

cane

The word ‘cane’ or ‘cain’ has been prevalent the last few days, which made me want to somehow incorporate it into the 365 Daily Challenge. As I’m away with family this week, the posts are a bit shorter. Why this word, you ask?

  • We put candy canes up on the tree and in some of the Christmas items all around the apartment, but I never ate a single piece of candy cane! I have a few peppermint items, like chocolate bark, but I didn’t eat a candy cane. I will need to do that this week before New Year’s Day!
  • I love ‘Murder, She Wrote,’ enjoying both the TV show and the books. On Christmas Eve, before we left on the trip, W and I stumbled upon an episode of Murder, She Wrote without Jessica Fletcher. It was news to me that she’d taken off many episodes, which meant another detective was the focus on the show. There was a British insurance agent who walked with I thought I was a cane, but later learned was umbrella. As it resembled a cane, I’m going with it. He took the round handle off, and it had a bunch of devices to pick locks. I need one! No questions, please. 🙂
  • Sugar cane is something we’ve all eaten, but I always realize around the holidays how much I consume. Of course, there’s the 5 pounds we put on at the holidays, resolve to take off in January… blah blah blah… yes, that will happen. But I’m craving sugar this year. I had so many cookies at my mom’s on Christmas, desserts  such as pecan pie and English treats from a friend, then I consumed a small cake for my anniversary, and now I’m eating even more while away. It’s too good to resist. My goal in 2018 — to visit a sugar cane plantation to see how it grows and figure out how to cut down this sweet tooth.
  • I like fried chicken and try new kinds whenever I can. I’ve never eaten at a Chick fil a, so while we were back at the airport again yesterday (they forgot to send my luggage… long story, maybe Ryder will rant about it when I return), we stopped for fast food — another thing I rarely do. We saw a Raising Canes chicken location, which I’ve also never eaten at… since it was more local, we went there. It was delicious, except they only had 1 fryer working, so it took a lot longer than expected.
  • Lastly, Cain, spelled differently, was 1 of the 2 brothers from the Bible, whom we have heard a lot about over the years. The classic good versus evil battle — the nice brother and the bad brother. Brothers were at the center of my year, given the family of 5 in my debut novel. But I’m also an only child… so being around my other half’s family this week reminds me of being part of a large family with tons of brothers or siblings. Always a good thing!

Today’s 5 interpretations of the word ‘cane’ seemed like a good path to go… unrelated but related… words that all mean something different to us. Did I miss any that should be here? I’m spending time working on Friday’s author alert… hope you’ll be excited by this one!

 

About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon @ http://mybook.to/WGS. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.
