Levies of Devotion

Available on Amazon in paperback

and e-book in May of 2020.

Three middle-aged women share an umbrella in a cold spring rain at Forest Lawn cemetery. They are sisters meeting for the first time, previously ignorant of the blood they share. Two of them conceived within hours, the third months later on the far side of the world; moments before their father was shot in the head at close range. Nearby are those who can tell their story.

Levies of Devotion explores the lives of four youths transitioning to adulthood in western New York amidst the backdrop of Vietnam and the cultural upheaval of the 1960's. Choices made at a tender age reckoning their destinies. Love and intimacy, betrayal and family expectations forge paths riddled with loss and the living reminders of loss.
